This hotel is conveniently located right off the 101 freeway not too far from many restaurants and stores such as Target, Old Navy, Costco, BevMo, and Olive Garden. The driveway entrance to this location is kind of hard to see at night since this particular area is not lit well. Check in was with a super friendly guy. I wish... More

We stayed the weekend of Feb. 14-15, as an overnight stop on the way back to the Bay Area. We were returning from a week in Southern California at a trade show. We booked the Hampton Inn almost by accident, as the hotel we stayed in previous years was fully booked for Valentine's Day. What a lucky accident! This was... More

We hadn't booked as we didn't know how far we would get in a day - tried the Marriott but the girl on the desk was so unhelpful we jumped back in the car and drove around the corner to The Hampton Inn and found the complete opposite...The girl...

This is a nice hotel, with nice rooms and had a very good rate for the area. It was convenient to restaurants and shopping and very convenient to the highway, although there was very little noise. All in all, a pleasant stay.

I reserved a room here two weeks before my trip through Booking.com. The reservation was guaranteed with a credit card. I was driving down from San Francisco, and I chose the hotel based on the great TripAdvisor reviews. I got in at 8:00 tired and ready to relax. I walked into the lobby and was promptly greeted by the desk... More

Dear guest, I want to apologize and understand your frustration with the hotel overbooking. This sometimes happens in the hospitality industry but I know it can be frustrating. Once again we apologize for having to move you to the Ramada Inn. We hope too see you again the next time you are in the area. Sincerely Rick Ogg General Manager More

Comfortable, well positioned hotel with all we needed for a weekend stay. Convenient for visiting our student at Cal Poly. Friendly and helpful staff, and breakfast is included. This is great value for the money. We would definitely return.

It was a really nice and comfortable place to stay. I recommend it!The staff was very accomadating my only quibble is with the food but all hotels serve the same things. It is okay for most travellers but it is a pridomately a carbohydrate based menu and I would like to see a small move away from the carbs.
