"Nice hotel, very loud"
Really loud party at the hotel when i checked in. Business travelers may want to look elsewhere first. If a loud party is your thing, then you'll like this property.Genuine Expedia guest review
I think it is very conveniantley located in San Diego. Especially if you're going to the convention center or want some food to eat. The only flaw I can see is it didn't have a coffee machine in the room. Everything else you can imagine, but couldn't get my fresh coffee while still laying in bed. Other than that, I couldn't have picked a better hotel. […] There was a pool party going on while we were there on the fourth floor, I would have never known if I wasn't told about it. My room was quiet and I didn't have to worry about loud music in my room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to ballpark"
It was fun. the pool closes way too early.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I really enjoyed my stay at the Hard Rock. I was hoping that I could have stayed longer. Everyone was really nice and helpful. The hotel was beautiful and clean. Bed was really comfortable. It was in the middle of Gaslamp District.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel right in the heart of GasLamp Dist."
We had never been to San Diego and wanted to visit while visiting a local college. 3 generations stayed this weekend and this hotel was fun for all 3 of us. It had the energy and young vibe for my freshman in college. The lobby smelled great, the staff was exceptionally helpful, and our room was big, clean and had a great view for me. My mom had a great […] time looking at all the rock and roll memorabilia and even took selfies on her phone with a picture of Elvis and the Rolling Stones. We also were impressed with the spa. We walked to dinner and shopping on 5th. It is across the street from the convention center and you can hear the Padres fans cheering if they are in town if you step out on your balcony. This hotel definitely was a great pick. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Couldn't have asked for a better hotel"
This place makes you feel like a rock star. The rooms are set up to support sexy time. You walk in and the music you requested is playing on the TVs. The mini-fridge is stocked to the brim with good alcohol (for fee). You can rent a guitar, a bike. The gaslamp and convention center are right out the door. The receptionist that checked us in listened […] to us when we asked for a romantic night. There's really nothing more I could have asked for. It was perfect! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Awesome experience. Room had a view of the pool party Intervention. Although, quite loud was also quite entertaining and ended at a decent time. Room was clean and you can't beat the rainfall shower.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very cool hotel"
Upgraded to King at no charge, valet parking a little expensive but seamless, breakfast restaurant great with al fresco tables. All areas clean and top quality. I will certainly return. Very cool rock theme and art evident everywhere. A unique property.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay"
My only issue was the fact that the bar and café were not able to be used as they were getting make overs for Comic Con. It would have been nice to know before hand.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Over priced over rated"
Valet parking staff was no where to be found went around in circles, found parking across the street. Hotel rate was $40 ...no microwave to warm up my toddlers milk,and room service won't do it either, there's a ridiculous charge for everything, a mini fridge w alcohol galore no space for your own drinks, rooms are extremely small, bathrooms were dirty, […] pool furniture discusting and filthy...jacuzzi water had dirt in it, a box with candy knowing you are traveling w kids $4 each, $10 for a water bottle....

"Convenient to Gaslamp District and Petco Park."
Hard Rock Hotel was nice. It is within walking distance to most everything downtown. The bed was comfortable, although it was a little lower than most hotel beds. Mary Jane's was good for breakfast. The staff was very friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to convension center"
My wife and I came for a conference at the convention center, which was really close. We were on the 3 floor right across from the gym and spa. The room was nice. However, every morning at 6ish we woke to a thump that vibrated through the room once every 5-15 minutes at random and then randomly throughout the day and evening. We called the front desk […] and told them about the noise, and they told us that there was nothing they could do. The stair case was right next to the room, and you could hear people going up and down the stair, it was loud when you hear the high heel. The prices of the items of mini bar were outrageous. Sunday afternoon and night was crazy with intoxicated college age partiers. The televisions were nice, but the menus and changing channels were so slow; it would take 10-15 seconds after you push a button for it to respond. The HDMI port on the cabinet did not work. For the price we paid, I was expecting something much better. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect location across from Convention Center"
We were welcomed and checked in early, enjoyed quiet evenings with the option to jazz it up in the surrounding area as we chose. Our luggage was held for us after we checked out, prior to easy trolley/bus access/departure to the airport. We had a great experience~Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Location-Young Crowd-Noisy"
Nice contemporary hotel in a great location right at the entrance of the Gaslamp District. Plenty of Restaurants and bars within walking distance. There was a wedding on the same floor as the pool so the pool closed early, which was unfortunate. Definitely a younger crowd so if you're looking to party, this is the place for you. Could hear the music […] from the fourth floor bar until 4am&people knocking on doors all hours of the night. If your're in your 20's or single hotel is probably the place for you.

Great hotel. Great location and super fun. But...do not get a room anywhere near the maintenance elevator shaft. The stench is terrible.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Overall Great Stay"
The Hard Rock is a really nice hotel. Lots of fun to be had. I was sort of surprised by the dress code at the clubs/pool at night. I also think that if you're staying at the hotel that the Saturday and Sunday pool parties should be free. At the very least, you shouldn't have to wait in line. There was a faint sewer smell in the hallways near the service […] rooms. The location is perfect and the hotel has access to everything in the area. I would definitely stay there again.

"Close to everything"
Not a bad hotel, but the toilet didn't work properly and the television guide system is a joke. Other than that everything was pretty decent.Genuine Expedia guest review
Love staying here. Great vibe. Very friendly and clean clean clean!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My room was clean but not taken care of (ie furniture scratched needs replacing) The fourth floor carpets smelled like beer. The pool was also way too small and was only open to 8PM for the bar.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"No Pool time"
I booked a weekend with some girlfriends for a Padre/Giants game. I called the day before our stay and check about having an early arrival time and if we could go to the pool until our room was ready. The girl who was helping me on the reservation said "No problem going to the pool before check in they would hold our bags and try to get an early check […] in. We arrived at 11:30 ready to go to the pool and we were informed we could NOT use the pool because of an Intervention Pool Party was going on and we could buy tickets at $40. I told the guy at the front dest we were told we could go to the pool while we wait. He said " We have an arrangement with the Hilton across the street for our patrons to use their pool. We said ok and went to the pool at the Hilton. It was not the Big Hilton across the Street in was another Hilton across the street from them. The pool was like a travel lodge pool. Very small pool and hardly any lounge chairs or any space. We sat for awhile but thought this is ridiculous so we went back to Hard Rock and asked about Sunday at the pool. We were informed the pool was only open for guests from 8:30 am to 11:00 am because of another intervention party. I told him this was ridiculous we were told we could use the pool here during our weekend stay. He said Sorry we don't have any control of it. What a joke No control of your pool?

"Close to Petco"
Although hotel was convenient for Petco Park, accommodations were small and less than luxurious. This is a party hotel with constant inappropriate adult behavior occurring in all public areas-requiring hotel security in elevators, lobby, etc. Hallways smell of a variety of foul odors. Choose Omni across the street! Not to mention $40 per night parking […] fee.... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Always a Party"
Went to SD to watch a couple of SF Giants games and a party breaks out at my hotel. Loved every min of it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location/staff is useless"
The concierge was never available. No one could direct us to the best restaurants or help us with directions. We were given bad advice in regards to transportation (told to take a cab when things were within walking distance). The location was perfect so I would choose a nearby hotel next time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"SF Giants game"
Hotel is...just OK. Never ate there as it was tooo expensive and the restaurants on 5th & 6th were amazing.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel near Petco Park and many restaurants"
Stayed one night during July 4th weekend! Hard Rock is definitely a Party Hotel! The pool party and Nightclubs were very fun! If you like to party and have a good time, then I would highly recommend this place!!Genuine Expedia guest review
very cool, chic hotel ; staff were friendly and accommodating ; loved music in the rooms ; close to great restaurants, ball park, and train station - loved it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I really expected a lot more out of the room for the price we paid. The room was clean, but a little cramped. I was excited about the rain shower and giving that a try. While my husband was in the shower I discovered that the air conditioning did not work. The maintenance man was prompt, but could not fix it, so we were moved to another room. Same room, […] but just a tub, no rain shower! The pool was closed for a 21 and over party that night, so the kids (13 and 14) were disappointed since they were looking forward to the pool all day. They did check it out the next day and said it was small. We all love music and a fun atmosphere, but this was more like a night club pick up joint. This is not the place to stay for families.

"Bossy staff, otherwise a nice place"
Very disappointing staff attitude. The valet kept yelling at me that my car is in his way instead of helping me figure out the check in process. The receptionist had to go through his questionnaire before he gave us a key. What if I don't care about music in my room and just want a quick check in? Too bad, it's about them, not about you as the customer. […] If it weren't 4th of July with most rooms in town booked I would have picked any other hotel. Otherwise thw room was clean and quiet but you can get that for much cheaper and without the attitude. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Fun place, amazing staff, corporate need to update"
Myself and my 3 Boys stopped in San Diego for a few days mini vacay before proceeding to our relatives home on So Cal. We choose this hotel based on reviews and precious stays at Hard Rock Orlando. First of all, the staff are warm, polite and sincere - from Antonio and gang at Valet to Nate at Front Desk and Amanda in the Mary Jane restaurant. High […] caliber individuals who made the stay fun and pleasant. The Lobby is cool and funky and the location is great for walking to restaurants and the San Diego Zoo. The room was nice - 2 Queens - there is limited shelving for toiletries and towels, but it is only a few nights. Beds are very comfortable and the TV is nice size with good selection of pay per view new releases and of course rock and roll stations amongst other stations. We ran the air at night on 69 degrees and in the morning, the ro had an odor, possibly from the carpet(?). The workout room is a joke though so if you enjoy exercising, I would take a run outside or do in room activities. The equipment is Rusty and dirty and the 'view' is of an old rooftop with rotting AC - better off if HR were to put up some type of pleasant window covering. There was a personal trainer who seemed good with his client but not sure how affordable that is. Overall it was a fun and pleasant stay due to the fantastic staff. I wish the corporate would update and invest into newer updated equipment and carpet. It is a waste of talent to not support the fabulous staff. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"VERY friendly and helpful"
Close to convention center and gas lamp. You don't need a car, but the valet crew was great. Free entrance to the hotel clubs. Best thing about the visit: somebody got shot on my floorGenuine Expedia guest review
Got this hotel because of its location, ballpark is a short walk way (about a block). this is in the middle of all the weekend action, great if you are going to enjoy the san diego nightlife. not so great for a family with small kids. i knew this going in and although a little noisy id stay there againGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ace's but don't expect to get all the perks"
Overall I would give this hotel 5 stars except for the things they offer in their "VIP access". Something you would normally feel excited by it privileges but two of the things that interested me the most (free bike rental and dj station) we not available. It comes to find out there is really only one DJ station in the whole hotel and it's not totally […] certain that it works. Yet it's listed as a cool thing you can have delivered to your room. Honestly if I didn't know these things were available I wouldn't have cared but since it was promoted it was hard to not feel disappointed when they weren't available.

First time I arrived at hard rock .. OVERARTED brand , the front desk has a major attitude. For the room I got , I think it was over priced and a horrible experience. They don't discipline if somebody is playing loud music and disturbing everyone on the floor. Looks like everyone who stays in these rooms are rock stars !!! I was expecting a classy place […] and very very disappointed . All night I had to hear people getting in and out of the elevators. Bad sound proofing. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice hotel but noisy"
We had a room overlooking intervention. It was ridiculously loud in our room. We had to leave until it was over because we couldn't relax. But on the upside it was extremely close to petco park and A short walk to dinner and entertainment.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was in a perfect spot around all the restaurants and bars. No need to take any taxis because everything is walking distance. One thing I didn't like was our room was facing the pool lounge area and it was very loud.Genuine Expedia guest review

Our first time in San Diego but stayed at Hard Rock Las Vegas many times. Now we love Hard Rock Hotels even more. It was beautiful and in a perfect location.

"Ok or great depending..."
Just came back from staying at the Hard Rock. I did read that it could be a bit noisy and should have heeded the warning. If you want a quiet hotel...not the place. I was there for the race week end and music was thumping way into the night. If you are there to be up late and party...great hotel and location. Just depends on why you are there. If you […] are a coffee drinker...there is NO coffee maker in the room or even one they can bring you. They brought us a microwave to heat up our coffee which worked for us (and didn't charge us for the microwave), but had I known this initially, I would definitely have chosen another hotel. Overall, it's more of a party-scene for the younger ones. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was comfortable, clean, and quiet. Seating area, with large flat screen tv, can be separated from bed area (also with its own large flat screen tv) by a curtain if some privacy is needed. Hair dryer, iron, and ironing board are included in the room, as well as quality shampoo, conditioner, and hand lotion from the on-site spa. I even found some […] Q-tips!Sliding glass door opens to outside - GREAT for getting some of that amazing San Diego ocean breeze! Location could not be more convenient for the convention center or a Padres game. Very nicely stocked mini-bar. There is also shopping, restaurants, and even convenience stores all around. The San Diego Trolley is steps outside the door of the hotel for easy access to destinations outside the downtown area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Amazing Place to stay !!"
Me and my gf went to San Diego and had a suprise trip for her . When we first walked in the hard rock it look amazing and the service was amazing . We got the king bed suite but my gf didn't know that , so when we walked into are room she was shocked how amazing the room was and the view that we had !! For sure I will be coming backGenuine Hotels.com guest review
A very nice stay. Make sure you ask for an outer room or a room higher than the 6th floor if you don't want to join any of the pool level events at almost eye level. Modern, comfortable, clean, nice staff, great location. King size bed was really a queen size mattress on a king platform - but it was comfy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
