"OK, but bring earplugs"
Hotel itself is not bad, good location, staff is nice and friendly, but some rooms are next to the railway tracks and there are trains passing every few minutes, blowing their horns. The street barriers are also next to the hotel so you'll hear those too. So, for those who are light sleepers, bring earplugs or a good doze of sleeping pills, otherwise […] you'll be up all night.

Response by Hampton Inn San Diego Downtown Dear Erik, I am sorry that you found our hotel to still be noisy despite the quiet zone. I am not sure if there were emergency situations that compelled the train engineers to blow their horns, but they are nos supposed to. Unfortunately we still do have to contend with the crossing guard barrier bells which can be an annoyance. I am glad that you found our staff to be friendly. Hopefully we will see you again in the future! Respectfully, Miguel Rojas
"Nice downtown hotel."
Hotel looked freshly remodeled, nice modern decor. Beds were comfortable and were advertised that the duvets were freshly cleaned for each guest. The only downside to this place is the noisy train that passes throughout the night.Genuine Expedia guest review

I am glad that you enjoyed most aspect of your stay despite the train noise. I hope that we have done enough to earn your repeat business. Respectfully, Miguel Rojas
"Great Petco Park Location"
My family went to San Diego to see the Dodgers play the Padres. This hotel is right on the Trolley green line, with a train stop right behind the hotel. It was very easy to get to the stadium on the train. The bad thing was that our room was right above the train tracks, and the hotel was completely booked. At times, the trains were a bit loud. However, […] the room itself was quite comfortable, the staff was lovely and the free breakfast was substantial. We will definitely stay here again, just in a different room.

Response by Hampton Inn San Diego Downtown Dear Stephanie, I am glad that you stayed with us when you came to see the baseball game. I am glad that you found our hotel convenient and am sorry that the same part that made it convenient for you also makes the hotel loud. Thanks for your willingness to stay with us again and we will make sure to give you a room further away from the train tracks. Respectfully, Miguel Rojas
"Love this hotel"
Great location, very good breakfast, clean, nice, comfortable beds, big room, very helpful staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hampton Inn San Diego Downtown Dear Guest, thanks for your business and the kind comments. We hope to serve you again in the future! Miguel Rojas
If you want sleep, this is not the hotel to get. I should have known once i saw two pairs of ear plugs on the nightstand that i wouldn't get any sleep. The train or trolly goes by often so its hard to sleep. The walls are paper thin so you can hear everything your neighbors are talking about even if they are talking in a normal tone.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hampton Inn San Diego Downtown Dear Mike, I am sorry that we we were not able to meet you expectations. Thank you for the comments on this site. I know that if you visited us again I could get you a better location in terms of location to the train line, unfortunately I would not be able to get you in a better location for neighborly noise.

"Close to Airport, Little Italy AND San Diego Troll"
This is an average example of this hotel chain. There is nothing distinguishable about the physical facilities or staff - all what one would expect. The positives of the location are possibly altered by the proximity of the San Diego Trolly crossing alarms. When the trolly (modern above ground electric rail system) is right behind the property, the […] noise of the warning of a passing trolly, may be disturbing to some, thus the property provides ear plug on the nightstand. I've stayed here before for one night and would do it again but it may have been annoying to some. That said, I have also stayed in a luxury high rise in San Diego also close to the trolly line and could likewise here the chiming alarm on a very high floor on the opposite side from the trolly tracks. This review is not to discourage, only so when booking, one is aware of the item not promoted or warned about. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Response by Hampton Inn San Diego Downtown Dear Annie, I am glad you enjoyed your stay at the Hampton Inn San Diego Downtowns due in part to our friendly service and "incredible" breakfast. See you again soon! Respectfully, Miguel Rojas
Very nice hotel in a great location. Breakfast was very nice. Even though this hotel is right on the train tracks, I didn't notice any train noise. Parking is a little tight in the underground spaces, but convenient. Would be a great addition to have a fridge in the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hampton Inn San Diego Downtown Dear HAK, I am glad that you got an opportunity to review the Hampton Inn San Diego Downtowns. Thanks for the comment regarding the breakfast and for the business. I want to let you know that we have refrigerators available upon request, hopefully next time you stay with us you will request one. I am sorry about the parking being so tight. Respectfully, Miguel Rojas
Great location near the water and near Little Italy (yummy food), very clean room, free hot breakfast, free wi-fi and easy to use free computer to print our boarding passes. We were there during a busy holiday. There were some parking issues but the staff tried very hard to make things workable. One of our nights, they moved a car to make a place. It […] was as if they saved us a parking space. I booked a handicapped room and they ran out so we were given a regular room. When the front desk realized the situation, a room fitting our needs was released just for us. I assume it was originally unavailable because it was scheduled for renovation. My only real complaint is the slow, small and jerky elevators. The staff was really helpful and friendly! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice hotel in good location"
Good location - within walking distance to harbor, Seaport Village and Gaslight area. Good breakfast. Staff was pleasant. Room was clean. Train tracks run behind hotel, so rooms in back could be noisy. Parking is extra.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hampton Inn San Diego Downtown Dear Phil, I appreciate your business and your time to complete this review. I hope we have done enough to earn your future business. Thank you for pointing out the pleasantness in our staff.
"Hampton Inn San Diego Downtown"
The thermostat in the room would not remain at its set temperature and I had to constantly readjust the dial but still had a pleasant stay. Staff was very friendly and accomodating. Ideal location for commuting via trolley, bus, etc.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Below normal Hampton Inn"
Friendly staff and room was good except for being right next to train tracks. Lobby was slightly run down but was being worked on. Elevators jumped up to a foot.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hampton Inn San Diego Downtown Dear Carl, thank you for your business and for your review. We are located in a noisy part of town and I am sorry that you likely did not enjoy this aspect of our hotel. I am glad to report that we are within 1 week of completing our lobby renovation and it looks awesome. Lastly I want to assure you that our elevators are safe despite them being "jumpy". Miguel Rojas
"love the location"
lobby was being painted while we were there so it was not as nice as usual. breakfast served scrambled eggs one day but mixed with ham and cheese on day 2. what about those of us who don't eat meat. No other option. could not get plain eggs on that day. The AC in our room broke. hotel was nice and changed our room but we had to move evwrything. The […] price has gone way up from last year. Refrigerators are not standard in rooms. overall, not as good as our previous stays at this same hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location but...."
Although I loved where the hotel was located, and the staff was courteous...there was a lot of things that could have been improved. The lobby was a mess during a renovation project, our air conditioning unit decided to not work at night (when needed the most), and their complimentary breakfast set up was chaotic at best (not to mention pretty bad). […] Was disappointed with the overall experience, if I had to do it over, I would have gone somewhere else. :-( Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hampton Inn San Diego Downtown Dear John, I am sorry that your stay was not optimal in part due to the renovation, a necessary part of any hotel operation. It would be my most sincere desire to have you experience our hotel when an event such as this is not going on, especially if you thought the staff was courteous. Respectfully, Miguel Rojas

"Nice hotel Downtown"
My stay was nice and quick. Room was very comfortable - Unfortunately, the room sits on the side of a railroad track. Even though I was given ear plugs....I was awaken many times in the night.

Check in was at 4pm. Couldn't check in till 5 due to over packed behind on cleaning. Parking lot was full so we couldn't park in the lot. Horrible service!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I had a wonderful stay at Hampton Inn, San Diego. I was initially impressed with the personal care given to me as I checked in, warning me that my room overlooked the trolley stop, which meant ringing bells. This was followed up with an invitation to change rooms after my first night, which I took advantage of. Secondly, my room was clean! Thirldy, […] I enjoyed the delicious warm breakfasts, along with the staff who was there to make sure everything was just right. Thanks Hampton Inn for a wonderful San Diego stay...and the location could not have been better! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to PETCO baseball park."
Beware train tracks close to hotel and can be loud. The hotel provides ear plugs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Crowded place to stay"
I didn't like how my room was right on the railroad tracks and specifically asked to be moved, which they did and that was a lot better. Otherwise, you have trains and horns running all night. The desk chair in my first room was really shabby-- I was stunned that they would have that in a room. No refrigerators. The breakfast room was packed-- I didn't […] even bother. The food in their breakfast is all over processed, packaged, non-gluten free, sugary with disposable everything. Really sends the wrong message about nutrition and sustainability. I've stayed at better Hampton Inns. Would not stay at this one again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent hotel for the price"
Pros: Staff were all friendly, helpful and professional. Free Shuttle to/from airport and zoo. If they are available they can take you to other area attractions within a certain distance. Free Breakfast & wifi Parking $12 (not that bad) Little Italy, Waterfront and Seaport Village are walkable. The trolley is behind the hotel. Most attractions and beaches […] are about 5-15 mins. Cons: Shuttle is free but what we found out is they take a break between 12:30-ish to 2pm. When we landed at 1pm, I called the front desk and they said they were on break ? I know I saw more than 1 driver when we were there. so they all take break the same time? that makes no sense and kinda sucked so we had to take a cab (cost us about $15 which we didn't account for spending) The trolley is literally behind the hotel. If you can't sleep with that kind of noise then be prepared. They do give you earplugs. It starts around 7am (I think) and ends around 10pm. Walking from the Gaslamp district back to the hotel, just be careful. There are pockets of homeless people on the streets. The hotel recommended the path we took but didn't mention that to us. The hotel overall was decent, not high end but not low either. It's right in the middle with comfortable beds, towels that are not see-through. they also clean everything for each new guest (as they advertise). Breakfast is continental with some hot breakfast choices which is a nice start. also had cookies later in the afternoon. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Less sleep than I had when my son was a new born"
was in a room facing the city side, train tracks right behind the hotel, train passing every 2 minutes all night long and the railroad crossing signal went off every couple minutes all night long when train was passing. on a positive not, I got free ear-plugs!!!!!! Would recommened this hotel if you are sure to get a room facing the waterfrontGenuine Expedia guest review
Close to airport and Little Italy, but in need of overall updates of hotel. Staff was just doing their jobs, nothing above and beyond.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beware of the train"
Heard the train non-stop, night and day. If you plan on sleeping, not a good idea. Some people may not be bothered by it, but we (two teenagers and mom) definitely noticed it. Hotel staff was very friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Dependable Hampton Quality"
Very nice, convenient walk to Seaport and Gaslamp and Little Italy. Reasonable parking rate for City at $12 per night. Parking tight though. Courteous staff. Noise from train but "you get used to it." (Famous movie line.)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Within walking distance to Sea Port Village"
The hotel was nice, served a great complimentary breakfast, but did not have a roll-a-way for us. It was not a comfortable stay because of the lack of a roll-a-way.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Place To Stay!"
We were able to check in early, fast and friendly service. Comfortable beds. One block away from the ocean and a short distance from Gaslamp.Genuine Expedia guest review
Pretty awesome is what my super picky teen said about our stay at the Hampton Inn. Great location, clean and comfy rooms, free breakfast and to top it off, excellent customer service. The staff here can't be beat. They went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant from switching my room (loud neighbors) to providing me with complimentary deodorant […] (I forgot mine!), and setting us up with free water bottles for our day out.

"Nice hotel. Very clean!"
The hotel was very nice. We had arrived earlier than expected and we were able to check in early. Room was very clean. Super close to the public transit which was good and bad.

"Why isn't this a 5-star hotel?"
If you are thinking about your staying at the Hampton Inn I would 100% recommend it. Free courtesy shuttle to airport, downtown & zoo. Perfect location for all downtown attractions. Can also walk from hotel to any attraction. After reading the reviews of the hotel before I made the reservation, I was a bit reluctant because of the noise, but I didn't […] hear the train once.

Service was great at this hotel, but two points of warning/information for anyone planning on staying here. 1. The bed in our room was really hard. 2. They charge $12 per day for parking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great deal and fabulous price!"
This location is easily accessible by mass transit and a brief waljk or trolley ride to many attractions. I was able to walk to Little Italy and take a quick trolley ride to the Gas Lamp district. The airport shuttle was a great service and everyone on the staff was so helpful and polite.Patricia at the front desk is a treasure and Alejandro the maintenance […] man was helpful and cheerful, ensuring that my concern was addressed and remediated immediately. The breakfast bar was one of the most complete offerings I have ever seen and I was floored by the staff's offer to provide me with a brown bag breakfast for my early departure.

Overall, I was pleased with my stay. The hallways to get to the room were stale and warm, however my room was clean and comfortable, and the a/c worked well. The hotel supplies earplugs if you're a light sleeper because the train behind the hotel runs quite late. My only 'complaint' was actually the parking. There isn't enough! You pay $12 to park, […] but there are not enough spots for every hotel guest and many people end up double parking.
