Great place to stay to visit USS Midway and Maritime Museum. Easy to access ferry to Coronado and Little Italy. Great staff. We would definitely stay here again. Only drawback was having to pay for nightly parking, but think that goes with being downtown.

For the price this hotel was fine. Good location for waterfront access. Don't pay extra for a 'bay view' room. Our party was on the 5th and 3rd floor and the train crossing signals were not a noise problem. Tiny gym. This hotel could use a refresh.

Not the best Hampton I've stayed at. The staff is wonderful and that is the biggest plus. There are just so many cons that I would never be able to stay here again. They are too close to the train, number one. You absolutely have to make sure you do not get a room near the train. Second, the beds...

The staff at this location is super helpful and friendly. Our stay was perfect from arrival to departure. The room was clean and comfortable. The pool area on the second floor is spacious and well maintained. There is a great park directly across the street and multiple restaurants within walking distance.

We stayed there as an overnighter prior to a full day dancing competition nearby, and this was a great place to have the kids and prepare them for the day. Breakfast was ready at 6am on a Saturday, which helped us immensely in being ready early enough to get to our competition, and the accommodations were very comfortable. Only issue...

Quit and the area was close to the event my son and I were attending. Used hotel points so that was nice as well. Hotel was updated and clean. Parking was a little difficult due to geographical location but not unbearable

The Hampton was very nice & clean. Could have used more than 3 small drawers for our week stay. Breakfast was good too. The downtown location was perfect. We didn't need to rent a car because we either walked to where we wanted to go or used a train tram that you could get on right behind the hotel. There...
