Terrible. Locked down jail. Even reception speaks to you through a phone before you are allowed entrance to the hotel. This is not a prison. There is no room service so te why advertise as a hotel. The solution for noise is earplugs. I mean I can keep going. Save your money, stay at a real hotel. You will be...

Hotel is Clean, Spacious, Great Location (Gaslamp Quarter), Super Friendly Staff, But you should know that upon arrival they offer you timeshare (weird because we paid full price) and there is no housekeeping. Other than that, hotel is very well located and well kept. There are several parking spots near the hotel, but very pricey though, so its better to...

My husband and I enjoyed an extended weekend getaway here. Had a fantastic time! We stayed in a studio unit. There was a full sized fridge, microwave, stove top burners, sink, and small dishwasher. No oven. There is no laundry in the unit, but a laundry area in the basement for guests to use. Our room was exceptionally clean! There...

This Wyndham location lives up to it's name where customer service and amenities apply. It's right at the top of the gas lamp district! We loved walking to area shops and restaurants, but it's also easy access to the interstate for other places.

this area is extremely noisy on the weekend.... we stayed there and it did not quiet down until about 3AM on both Friday and Saturday night. On the other hand, it is a great place to stay if you are young and want to party all night...

Rooms in this hotel are extremely noisy. It's almost as bad as living in a trailer house. Homeless people sleep on the sidewalk in front. You have to pay a valet $34 a night to park. Your car is kept in a lot where homeless prowl. My car came back with a dent. Park your own car in a parking...

Thank you for choosing Wyndham's Harbour Lights! I apologize for any challenges with noise, and for any damage to your car. Yes, the homeless situation in San Diego has ballooned in recent years. If you need the Valet's insurance information please email WVOSocialResponse@wyn.com. Best regards.

Spacious studio style accommodations looking out on 5th Avenue in the Gas Lamp district of San Diego. Friendly staff and yes there is the attempt to promote Wyndham products, however as owners we just merely smiled and said, "no thanks we're very satisfied with our timeshare arrangement as is." End of story and lots of unfettered fun.

My visit to the Wyndham at San Diego was ok. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate with my visit and it was rainy and cool. The Wyndham was great, we had a nice studio with a small balcony. It was clean and comfortable on the six floor facing the main gamlamp district. The hotel is located in the heart of...

Beautiful resort, wonderful location, very friendly and attentive concierge, pleasant staff. The only downside to staying at a timeshare resort is of course listening to the presentation, when you know you aren't interested. There is no housekeeping, no breakfast, valet parking only for $34 a night. You definitely do not need a car in this area, just an uber.

Well located at the heart of gas lamp. Surrounded by hot restaurants and night clubs. But, gets very noisy at night. Unable to sleep at night due to unstoppable noise from people, music and cars passing by. There is road work going on right in front of the Wyndham, causing metal plate notice with every car passing. Only valet parking...

The Gaslamp Quarter boasts of the most exciting nightlife in San Diego! Thank you for choosing Wyndham's Harbour Lights for your entertainment delights. Wyndham also offers Inn at the Park should you prefer a more subdued adventure. Best wishes.
