This was my first time staying at a Hampton Inn. I was pleasantly surprised to find good service, clean rooms, and amenities. I will continue to stay at this location when I'm in town. For the value, this is a good stay.

Very please with the service and the cleanliness of the hotel.

While visiting our son for the Thanksgiving holiday, we enjoyed many local activities. We hiked Torrey Pines, visited the UCSD campus, Birch Aquarium, and the San Diego Zoo. We were sure to make the breakfast a part of every day. The airport is very close too! Perfect for our vacation!

Stayed here on our first trip to SD for a Wedding. Convenient location to the freeways, the exit from the hotel to get to 5N can be backed up often though.

Everyone was friendly and worked to solve problems or give advice. Clean and breakfast was good, hot and plentiful. Desk staff always available and most helpful. Did have to drive to restaurants, but they were within 2 miles. Highway very handy. Pool and hot tub were very clean, but pool was not heated.

Hotel is located several miles from the beach, Less than a mile from San Diego freeway exit.. Grocery store is minutes away along with shopping centers. Hotel is in quiet location away from heavy traffic. Great breakfast buffet selection, and nice large eating area.

There was definitely an issue with the bathroom exhaust fan system as we had a bad stench of sewer gas in our bathroom for the three days we were there. We asked at the desk and all they did was spray which worked for about 20 minutes then the stench returned. Should have offered us another room.

Just average...nothing special...beds are a bit hard for the price. Not too far from beach. Easy freeway access. Shower had good water pressure with raised shower head that's great for accomadating tall people like myself.

This is a great hotel about 4 miles north of UC San Diego. The hotel was clean, well maintained, and very affordable. The full breakfast was very good and had many choices, satisfying both my teenager and myself. I would definitely stay here again.
