Historical Traveler Reviews Hampton Inn San Diego - Kearny Mesa
Good hotel, solid value
Stayed four night at this hotel. Room was small, but clean and the beds were very comfortable. The staff was friendly. My family really enjoyed the free breakfast. Each day the menu was slightly different, but it was well stocked and the staff was quick to replace anything that was running short. It was also convenient to major freeways. Free parking was also a plus, something not available in the Hotel Circle or La Jolla areas. Would definitely stay at again.
This hotel was quite nice, would like the fitness area to be a little larger. however it was clean, refreshing, as most hamptons are. you really cant go wrong at a hampton. You can find cheaper hotels that are probably as nice. But for some reason Hamptons dont budge on price they don't feel they have too. This location lacked a whirlpool, not good. I would stay here again though. Location not close too much so don't expect to walk to anything of significance.
We just returned from a trip to San Diego for a wedding and stayed at the Hampton on recommendations from this site. It was a great hotel. Beds were comfortable and it was quiet at night. Lots of places to eat in the area so food was not a problem. We had heard San Diego traffic was awful, but had no problem getting to the zoo or downtown at various times of the day. We would definitely stay there again.
Pretty full of themselves!
This hotel definitely has an unwarranted superiority complex! Stayed one night in a very blah room, breakfast is Denny's quality. Turns out they not only wouldn't honor Hampton Inn's advertised holiday rates, but their lowest rate was almost $50 more/night than the 5-star Grand Hyatt Marina we spent the next two nights in on an Entertainment rate!
Unless you have to stay in this neighborhood, definitely look for something better.
I had a room on the 5th floor. Not sure why I had to swipe my key in the elevator to get to the 5th floor. My room was clean and the space was very ample for my week stay. I had a King size bed w/work desk, sofa, coffee table and 25" tv. The room also had a small fridge in the closet. The hotel has free wireless access too. The A/C worked off and on though but it was not a big deal since San Diego does not have much humidity in summer.
The hotel has free hot breakfast in the morning, eggs, sausage, bagels, muffins, juice, coffee, tea, cerea, fruits. The eggs and sausage weren't that tasty (tasted like school cafeteria) but free is a low number.
The hotel has an outdoor pool. The wireless access works in the pool area so you can lounge with your laptop and then go in for a dip. There is also a workout room with treadmills, cybex machines, rebumbant bikes, etc. The staff was pleasant. All in all a nice stay.
We spent four days at the end of July escaping the Tucson heat at the Hampton Inn with our puppy. This time of year most all the San Diego area hotels were booked solid and I was having a very hard time finding anything that was pet friendly. I found this Hampton Inn in Kearny Mesa and they accepted smaller dogs. The location wasn't near downtown, but it was just off the 163 Freeway. The freeway systems in San Diego are very good and it only took 12 minutes to get downtown or anywhere else! The hotel did a very good job of accommodating our pet needs and placed us on the first floor near a side exit (room 123). There are many small grassy areas around the hotel. The room was very clean and the free breakfast acceptable. There are several fast food establishments with 2 miles of the hotel. This hotel is highly recommended for travelers with small pets.
Hampton kearny mesa is a great find
July 2005, It was an exceptional hotel. Very clean, they ran the sweeper in the halls and elevator all through the day. The rate was fantastic $119. The breakfast included hot food, waffles, sausages, eggs, and lots of fresh fruit, yogurt and breads and rolls. WOW. The pool was heated and always clean. It is in the business section of town so there is not alot of restaraunts or shopping, but it is right on the highway and easy to get to Old town and even little italy. We found some great inexpensive places to eat. The desk staff was very helpful and courteous. I cannot say enough about what a great deal this Hampton offers families traveling to san diego.
The Hampton Inn @ Kearney Mesa is AWESOME.
The lobby is nice... the kids loved the large aquraium (very nice fish). Pleny of seating. The internet terminal is there. They also have wireless acess for free in the rooms. The elevators are not "scary" as previoulsy reviewed. In fact just the opposite. The exercise area is pretty big in comparison to other Hampton Inns. There is a big conference room also.
The hotel staff was awesome. Robert at the front desk was very helpful. Our original room was not ready due to clerical error with the cleaning staff but they got another room for us. The quick thinking cleaning staff got us another room in 5 seconds... I am not exaggerating.
The rooms all have little refrigerators (like the ones you had in college) in the closets. A nice touch if you have small children like we do. The rooms were clean. The bathrooms were also really clean. It's nice to come back to a clean room after a long trip ....especially when travelling with young children.
The mornings are especially nice as described they have a great breakfast. It is as described pretty substantial (Yogurt, muffins, bagels, eggs, ham,Oj, apple juice, cranberry juice, cofee, cereals, fresh fruits, ....etc ). This alone is a great deal.
Plenty of parking is the rear..as described in the previous reviews. The location is great also. Kearney Mesa hits Claremont Mesa ... which can take you to most of the major interstate highways and freeways. There is a Wal-Mart on Claremont Mesa (take a right at the Mobil on Kearney mesa ) down the street if you need medications,...etc. We even got our film developed as we stayed in the area.
We just got home and found a personal Thank You Postcard from the owner of the Hampton Inn.
We would definitely stay here again.
We were simply looking for a decent place to crash for a quick overnighter, and we ended up having **the best hotel experience** ever--fantastic price ($66 included all taxes and hotwire fee) includes at no extra charge: wireless internet in the rooms and computer in lobby, great breakfast (waffles, sausages, bagels, OJ, GOOD coffee, fresh donuts, yogurt...and more!) AND all day long they have free coffee and a pitcher of lemonade & ice water AND bananas and apples in the lobby, newspapers, complimentary toothbrush, toothpaste, and other sundries (you request it in the lobby if you need it), cable TV of course, an actually beautiful, modern workout room, attractive lobby with plenty of couches, tables and an exotic aquarium, and most important of all, our room was clean, the decor attractive and the bed was very comfortable and cushioned. The staff was definitely friendly, and when I requested a late checkout on Sunday, they simply said "Sure, what time would you like?" Too good to be true!
I think Hampton Inn is attempting to morph into the "Jetblue" of hotels, if you know what I mean...and whoa it's definitely working!!
The La Jolla/San Diego area gets very pricey ($80+ for a crappy motor inn is typical on weekends), so this was a complete steal at $66...and I say you can pay up to $115 for Hampton Inn Kearny Mesa and still feel good about it.
The only thing I found a little funny was how the decor tried to blend fresh, modern yuppie designer aesthetics with the obviously pre-existing country rustic furniture and carpet. The elevator is definitely case in point. But even that was kinda cute too. "Smile."
Okay, so now the secret is out...let's hear more reports about other Hampton Inns to see if they are just as good as this one...
Right off the freeway, it is convenient trip to anywhere in San Diego. Plenty of parking in the rear. Wake up early and take advantage of the breakfast! It is the best hotel breakfast I've ever had. I even took a few doughnuts, fruit and cartons of milk back up to my room. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful.
There is a small gym and swimming pool. The gym may be crowded at times and full of kids. The elevator is scary. Some of the buttons were punched off. The room was clean and room service was great! There's free internet in the lobby if you don't have a computer.
I really liked this place and I keep coming back to it. I used Hotwire and is very pleased.

... drivng over the speed bumps, avoiding the tyre spikes and dodging the security guard on his golf cart, we had somehow managed to park in the free employees only section of Sea World.

It was a very Californian with all it's palm tree lined streets, beach style houses, people in their swimming costumes riding the low riders to the beach. We even saw some good ol' beach volleyball and football between mates. We drove around the island up to the naval base perimeter and back onto mainland.

It is the touristy thing which gives you all the information you need in a short time, plus a bit of independence to get off and stroll around on your own. It's good fun too, as the drivers were a funny bunch, telling stories about their hometown with good humour.
