Ok but not great
Nice enough place to stay. Bed was a bit hard and we were place on the"RAILWAY SIDE" of the building so regular train noise, want that bad but if you're a light sleeper you would notice. Reasonable breakfast but could be better organised as kids would be everywhere. Might be easier if they had age limits on the walked in particular. Shuttle service in was reasonably quick, note you have to take the elevator up at the airport and cross the cross over to be picked up. Schulte back, week a bit of a different story there. We were not advised that you had to book it. We had to lug our suitcases to the amtrak station and those at the service desk did not appear to care. Great area to access transport and plenty of things to see. Wasnt that impressed with the food choices in little italy, you are better to go to the gaslamp district. Overall nice enough stay but i think they could do a few things better

Great to be near the harbor!
Basic well-run Hampton Inn with friendly and efficient service, clean and comfortable rooms. Breakfast was so-so (no cut-up fruit most of the time) but about what's to be expected. Location is excellent for access to the Embarcadero waterfront, Little Italy and the trolley -- but that last comes with a price, as the trolley and train line is directly in back of the hotel and has gotten much noisier over the years. Yet the trains run right thru the spine of San Diego and it's hard to get great location that's not next to or very near the tracks. But ask for a room on the harbor side where it's not quite as noisy.
