I stayed here a few nights for work. Location is not very exciting but is conveniently off the highway. Parking spaces are small - tight fit if you're driving a full size truck. Other than that, a nice little place to stay. Hotel is very clean, staff is pleasant. The room looked/smelled clean and was quiet and comfortable. Didn't partake... More

Great stay and excellent value for money. As always Hampton Inns provide great beds and value for money for families. Ate at the Santa Cruz Diner located down the road about 1/2 mile which was very nice.

I can't say anything bad about the hotel itself per se. The room was pretty good, the staff was welcoming. There was no fitness center which was disappointing. But the free breakfast was a typical free Hampton breakfast and therefore passable. But you can't change the surroundings of the place. And the best description of the surroundings was "run down"....

While I am glad that you enjoyed our property and staff, I am sorry that you were disappointed with your visit to Santa Cruz city. Citywide, Santa Cruz does have a noticeable homeless population, but we work with our neighbors, the Santa Cruz Police Department, and the city as a whole to maintain a safe neighborhood. I hope that we... More

Just loved everything in the hotel. Will definitely use this hotel again. Everybody was so NICE and flexible about some changes we had to make. My husband got sick while on site but the hotel allowed us to keep the room available for another few hours while he started feeling better.

I reserve 5 stars for premium hotels, not Hampton Inns; but, I find Hampton Inns to be the best in their class of hotels and this one was excellent as Hampton Inns go. Stayed four nights over the Thanksgiving Holiday and had a very good experience. The inn is well-positioned for seeing the many sights of the Santa Cruz area.... More

This one stands out due to having DVD players in rooms and really good breakfast pastries, in addition to Hampton's dependably wonderful beds and in-room amenities, and adjustable-height desk chairs, lighting, and plugs for computers.

Conveniently located on Ocean Street in Santa Cruz, the Hampton Inn and Suites proved to be wise choice for our family recently. We wanted a place for children that would be pleasurable for all. Having a pool kept the younger set very happy. The rooms were clean and well appointed. The included breakfast featured hot and cold foods with an... More

We found this Hampton Inn to be on par with other Hampton's. It was clean, quiet, bed & pillows were comfy, breakfast was great (hot choices were waffles, potatoes, scrambled eggs with cheese & ham) & the staff was great. What more can you ask for?

The hotels in San Jose were too expensive for my work to pay for, so I stayed at this Hampton Inn and commuted from Santa Cruz to Sunnyvale. The hotel was very updated and nice. The service was great and my room was very nice. The complimentary continental breakfast is great and the Directv in your room is nice. The... More

This was my first stay at this location and I was only there for one night but the hotel was nice, clean, and the staff was friendly. The parking lot is a bit cramped and the breakfast just okay (typical of a Hampton) but overall it's a good place to stay. I would stay here again when in Santa Cruz.
