We had lunch in Little Italy in San Diego at a nice Italian Restaurant, then we walked back to the hotel and bought a loaf of bread on the way back so Sorayaa could have a Nutella sandwich.
We had a much needed nap then walked down to the Bay and went for a tour of the ships and Submarines that were there. We were all too exhausted to go to …

We checked in and then sat down and had …

Hi Cara!
There is real difference between 'cheap' air fares and 'inexpensive' air fares, and today we discovered the difference in profound fashion!

It was the wildest coincidence! When we went down for breakfast, the woman working there was named Carmen and can you believe it was her birthday as well? Amazing!!!
We took the trolley tour which was about 2 hrs. It is great because there is so much to see and they take you by everything. San Diego to Coronado and back. Went back to Little …

We left Yuma and headed west. The landscapes changed so dramatically as we traveled. We went from sea level to over 4000 ft..in 45 minutes. As we ascended the mountain there were signs telling us to turn the AC off for 10 miles to prevent the car from overheating. They had water for the car's radiator all along the road about every .5 mile. It was …

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hampton Inn San Diego - Downtown

    Good Value, within walking distance of Little Italy and Seaport Village

    from

    I stayed from 4/29/04 to 5/8/04 with my wife and kids. I was attending a conference at the convention center. The convention center was a bit of a hike (about 20-30 minutes), but the hotel was about $100/night cheaper than the hotels closer to the convention center, and the weather was so fine I enjoyed the walk. Parking is $10/night extra. The parking garage is fine. Another reviewer was bothered that the elevator didn't service every floor in the garage (it services every other, I think). I didn't think it was a problem. I asked for, and received, a room on the front of the hotel, because they are quieter. There are train and trolley tracks immediately behind the hotel. We were not bothered by the train noise. The breakfast buffet was great. There is a small exercise room and pool. The hotel was kid friendly, but seemed to have mostly business travelers when we were there. The staff are friendly. The property looks new. All in all, I think it was a good value and I would stay there again. Compared to a recent stay in New York City, the room was twice as big and cost half as much.

    Basic, clean, train noise

    from

    Stayed on Hilton points for meeting in SD to save money as the city is so expensive and I needed to get to the convention center, other hotels, downtown, etc. and wanted to avoid a car.

    Friendly Staff

    from

    Rooms need updating, buth other than that the Location is great.

    Directly across from the Pier and restaurants. Trolley to Mexico is behind the Hotel. The train tracks are also behind the hotel and if noise does not bother you, this is a great location. Free Breakfast is nice too. Charge for Parking, but hotel has a free shuttle.

    Mediocre all the way around

    from

    The hotel is very clean and well appointed. The staff was very friendly and eager to oblige. Those are the high points. There's nothing spectacular about the hotel and nothing terrible, except the parking garage/elevator. There's basically about 15 spaces on the first floor, then you start going up, but there's only one elevator entrance. So if you have don't park on the first floor, you have to walk back down to the first floor to catch the elevator back up! Basically, this hotel's price is strictly for the location. It's right by Little Italy, the airport and the Convention Center. But in San Diego, everything is fairly close by and easy to get to, so if you have a car, you can take that $10@night, and stay in Mission Valley, where you're 5 min from the zoo and 5-10 minutes from Downtown or La Jolla. If you do stay here, do get over to the Taco stand next door! Oh yeah, the deluxe continental breakfast is pretty standard fare.

    Good hotel, Good price, Dec 16-21/03

    from

    Very clean almost new hotel. Good breakfast selections, well supplied.

    Good size rooms for 2 adults 2 kids. No problem with train noise, but tracks do run behind hotel. Pool small but adequate, we were the only ones using it..... Shuttle driver (Santiago) made our stay more enjoyable. He was a constant source of correct local information, not like the front desk, and he made our stay in San Diego that much better. Area seemed safe but we still often used the hotel shuttle, always after dark. Would recommend and stay again, deserves to be rated higher

    Hampton Inn Downtown San Diego

    from

    We stayed at the Hampton Inn October 11th thru the 18th. The hotel is perfectly located. The trolley is in back of the hotel, the bus to Lajolla runs right in front. The staff at the hotel is excellent, they will assist you with any of your travel needs.

    The hotel is clean and set up nicely. The breakfast buffet had a varitey and was refiiled as needed. The only draw back is the trolley and train noise, but it stops around midnight and restarts around 6 am.

    We never spent that much time in the room for it to be a bother.

    Good vibrations!

    from

    This hotel has a great location for making your way around San Diego.

    The staff were lovely and the complimentary breakfast yummy.

    But those trains ... we had a room to the rear of the hotel and were kept awake for the 2 nights by the whoo whoo of the trains (which were about a mile long and took 10 minutes to pass) and the ding ding of the trams.

    Some residents compained and were moved to the front of the hotel, so be aware if you stay to specify a room to the front.

    Nice hotel if you're a heavy sleeper!

    from

    We chose the Hampton Inn downtown San Diego because it was close enough the convention centre, and it had a pool, as well as the continental breakfast buffet. The proximity to the harbor was great, it is very close to the Maritime Museum ship. The room was spotless and nicely decorated, the room size was average, and the bathroom was large. We requested a fridge but they were all being used. The staff was friendly and helpful, free shuttle to San Diego Zoo was great as I was a little nervous to drive around the city. The pool was clean, but not too big.

    Great location - Friendly staff - No noise problem!

    from

    We stayed at the Hampton Inn-Downtown for eight nights in December. Having a room facing the bay meant we had absolutely no problem with noise from trains and trolleys. In fact, the proximity of the train station and trolley stop were bonuses! We did not rent a car, and the Hampton Inn was the ideal location for us. The hotel's shuttle takes you to and from the airport and anywhere else in the downtown area, subject to availability. Horton Plaza (Downtown), Seaport Village (near the Convention Center), and Old Town (north) were very accessible via trolley. And Bus #34, which stops a 1/2 block north of the hotel, took us straight into downtown La Jolla!

    Noisey noisey noisey!!!

    from

    Fine amenities for the price, but the hotel is right next to train tracks. The DING DING DING DING is CONSTANT. And the loud trains themselves aren't terribly melodic, either.
