5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We used points to stay at this property en route to Sonoma from Long Beach, deciding to make it a fun trip, rather than a one-day haul up the 5. Set just off the 101 freeway, this property is beautifully (and ecologically) landscaped, well maintained and close to the city (but far enough away). We were on the 4th floor... More

The hotel was as good as the chain always is, but a major disapointment was the coin washing machine being out of service and no maintenance available. Rooms were very clean, breakfast as good as usual, and front desk service also good.

This hotel isn't very fancy however, breakfast is included, we had a fridge and tea and coffee making facilities. The elevators are large easy to get yourself and luggage up to your room. The rooms are very clean, and they also have a microwave in the room. I had a problem with the bathroom lock which I reported yesterday morning... More

We have stayed in over 100 Hampton Inns and this was one of the less stellar ones. The breakfast stocking was poor and many people didn't get what they wanted. In the evening, the decaf coffee was empty and net refilled even after I asked. The hot water was gone too. We used one of your meeting rooms and the... More

Welcoming. Simple but clean room with adequate amenities. Good price. Breakfast included. Wifi included as HH member. Easy drive into town for dinner... Good recommendations from front desk staff. Would recommend to travelers driving highway 1 or 101

I travel here at least once a year to binge on films at the Palm Theater. My recent stay here was very satisfactory. Was quiet, clean, with friendly staff. Felt safe here. Better than average breakfast was served downstairs near lobby. Parking close and free! An unhappy woman in the lobby was upset due to noise from the room next... More

It´s a good place to stop in the middle of the road trip to rest. Of course you will need a car to get her and go to everywhere because you don´t find anything close to the hotel that you can go walking. But if you are at this city I realize that you are here going to other city.... More

This Hampton Inn is new and offers a great place to hangout after a busy work day. The rooms are very clean. The decor is very updated. The daily breakfast was good. I highly recommend this location for both business and pleasure.

We chose this hotel because we stayed at a Hampton up in Washington for my sisters wedding a few years ago. It was the best! This hotel was no different! It was simply and tastefully decorated. It had the feel of a nicer hotel, definitely not a budget hotel. The room was very clean, the beds were so comfortable, and... More

Everything was very clean, the staff friendly and breakfast fine. This chain has good Belgian waffles. Love that they use clean duvets for every guest. Easy access to the freeway and 10 minutes from the beach. Stores and restaurants close by. They were very accommodating about getting all of our party together on the same floor.
