Clean, friendly staff, helpful with tourist info, great pool and great breakfast. Close to attractions. We were welcomed at Hilton Honors members and treated really well. All of our experiences at Hampton Inns have been great.

We booked two rooms here for a family vacation and specified we needed one of the rooms to have a king bed with a pull out (there was 8 of us). When we arrived they gave us one room with two double beds and the other had only a king (no pullout). My sister who is a diamond member, explained... More

Comfortable Hampton Inn with above-average rooms and above-average breakfasts. Smallest Hampton Inn that I have stayed in, with open core similar to Embassy Suites (on a smaller scale) A few blocks away from Mission Santa Cruz. Too far away from the Santa Cruz Boardwalk to comfortably walk.

The Hampton Inn has been a second home in Santa Cruz for over 12 years, since our son was a student at UCSC. Sue and Ray, the managers, make visitors feel like family and the welcome they provide keeps us coming back, even if it was for only a two night visit this time. One can walk downtown from the...

We stopped here two nights while attending a wedding in nearby Felton. The property proved to be well located for our needs, just off the freeway and a short drive to Felton. It's an apparently new 3 storey building on a relatively compact "footprint;" parking in the rear parking lot is a bit limited. Around the hotel and in the... More

The Hampton Inn was nice with a very comfortable room, but I had the misfortune to visit when it was sold out and I was given a room on the first floor, just steps away from the dining room. It was pretty noisy all the time. Other than that, a nice hotel.

JasonSantaCruz, Guest Relations Manager at Hampton Inn Santa Cruz, responded to this review

Thanks for taking the time to review our property! I'm glad that you enjoyed your room, but I am sorry that you experienced issues with noise while staying on the first floor. Typically noise isn't an issue in these lobby-adjacent rooms, but during the busy summer months we sometimes have the occasional issue with this. Again, I apologize for the... More

I stayed at Hampton Inn Santa Cruz during my recent trip to Santa Cruz while attending my daughter’s UCSC graduation. I reserved 5 rooms for my family. I am a seasoned traveler with quite a fairly large number of nights in hotel around the world. I am happy to share my travel experiences, the good and bad since I also... More

I chose the Hampton Inn in Santa Cruz, because I knew that it would hold to a standard of Hilton Properties. I have stayed in the Hampton for both business and leisure. For this trip, I had hoped the The Hampton would be closer to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, which was the reason for our visit. The pool area... More

My husband and I stayed here last weekend and loved it! I work at a hotel, so I know good customer service when I see it. Before we even arrived, Diane called me to verify that everything was all set for our arrival, and I definitely appreciated that! Diane checked us in as well, and our check-in process was smooth...

This hotel has the cleanest bedding and it is so comfortable! The complimentary breakfast is very good and the staff is great! If you are looking for a hotel to stay with your family I reccomend it. It is not far from the boardwalk either!
