We had two connecting rooms on a trip to Legoland - we had kids, grandma, the whole bunch with us. We arrived late evening and Amanda was there and just couldn't do enough to help as she stocked us up with extra towels, toothbrushes, anything we needed. Rooms were comfortable, great rest. Breakfast was standard Hampton Inn - but perfect...

Great location and fine service in all aspects. The staff is very friendly and professional. They are very considerate of customer requests and needs. Beware of the nearby gas station as their prices are considerably higher than any other nearby gas facilities.

We found 2 spiders and didn't feel the quality was up to par. The tub/shower had cracks in the walls. The breakfast was more suitable to be considered continental. The AC didn't cool the room properly. I do not recommend staying on bottom floor as we could hear the guests above, as we were trying to sleep.

After driving more than two hours from Long Beach, it was nice to have pleasant staff greet us. Amanda at the front desk and David the manager were awesome. David brought the rollaway bed and extra towels as requested. He even removed any pillows that may not be allergy free. My daughter and I were able to go to the...

We picked this hotel for its proximity to the Csusm, and it was the right decision. Our room was smallish but clean, with 2 queen beds, a refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, iron + ironing board. The hotel is small, just 3 floors, so it doesn't get noisy. The breakfast area is very small so you need patience. We mostly ate...

Very pleased with our stay and we found the room to be clean, quiet and located near a freeway for easy access to our next destination. I would recommend this hotel for all the above reasons (including easy check in).

Great breakfast - choice and quality. Free internet, clean rooms, good amenities, friendly staff, access to freeway. Would definitely recommend to anyone staying in the San Diego area. Just be aware the A/C might run from a thermostat on the wall, not the unit by the window.

We stayed here prior to visiting the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. It is in a great location for that; it only took us 15 minutes to get there. Like all Hampton Inns, it was clean and comfortable, the staff was amazing, and the breakfast tasty. The staff were able to recommend some nearby restaurants for dinner (there are a...
