Friendly staff, and very helpful! Had a great experience visiting this Hilton property, and I am a diamond member. One of the maiin perks of why I continue to book with Hilton, their staff are very friendly and definitely know how to greet newcomers with a smile.

This is my second stay at this hotel. Great breakfast with many options. I especially appreciate the fresh fruit, including papaya! It is well maintained and clean. Rooms are spacious. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel recycles paper and plastic, which is a big plus in my book. Lovely outside pool and nice fitness room with treadmills that...

I stay at this hotel twice a year while on business in the area and have noticed a negative trend the past three stays. On a recent visit my curtains were stained, the carpet was dirty, the veneer on bottom of the room door was peeling, the desk area was scratched and the club chair was not clean. The wall...

Best hotel staff I've ever dealt with. Conveniently close to Cal State San Marcos. Really enjoyed my stay and staff were super helpful when I had a change in travel plans mid-stay. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

I would recommend the Hampton Inn in San Marcos because it's a great facility, clean and efficient as well as very conveniently located. Great staff, they are very helpful. We had restful nights sleep because it's very quite and the accommodations are very comfortable.

First Hampton Inn I had a great experience. Staff was caring. Especially Justin, they even offered me a bag to take for the morning, some hotels Hampton Inn don't even ask. Breakfast was pretty good. Sausage, eggs, and bagel with cheese and pepperoni. Bed was comfortable and not itchy like one of the Hampton Inn I stayed in. Location was...

The HAMPTON INN SAN MARCOS was in need of repairs in the bathroom. The carpet in the lone elevator had a huge stain. Our room itself was very clean and showed a conscientious cleaning staff. The same cannot be said for the maintenance staff. Either it lacks knowledge, concern, or management is trying to pad the bottom line and not...

The hotel was very clean. The staff were very friendly and courteous. Offered coupons for local restaurants. It was a great location for what we were there for. The rates were very reasonable. We would definitely stay at this location again. Thank you.
