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.

The hotel is very clean and quiet. The staff were friendly and the check in and check out were problem free. My family had a short but excellent stay. The location was easy to find and very accessible. We definitely would stay here again.

i have had good experiences at hampton inns, but this one must be a different hampton. the room was filthy and smelly, old, and overused. the sofa bed was like being tortured on a rack, we had to call the front desk to get some pillows delivered. we tried to get a different room but were told this was there...

I'm sorry that you were disappointed by your recent stay at our property. I can assure you that our standards of housekeeping are very high, in keeping with the rest of the Hampton Inn brand, and I am quite surprised to read that you found your room unclean. During the summer months, room rates in Santa Cruz can certainly be... More

My wife and I stay at Hampton Inn & Suites almost exclusively when we are away from home. The Santa Cruz Hampton is a good hotel. Friendly and helpful staff, clean, comfortable ... This Hotel is a converted Hotel so it was not originally a Hampton Inn. Again, we are big fans of Hampton Inn ...

Fun fact: our Hampton Inn was actually built to be one, but due to the fact that it's the smallest Hampton Inn in the world, it has a very different layout than most! I'm happy that you enjoyed your stay with us, and that our staff and property were to your liking. I hope that we have the opportunity to... More

This is by far the best hotel for the cost! I was so very comfortable. The beds are comfy and very clean, the room is lovely and quiet, the food was amazing. We had originally booked in a B&B that I wouldn't send my dog to stay in. I was so happy with the Hampton Inn. And George, the manager... More

Booking on line direct secured the best price I could find, check in was fast & helpful information provided. The room was exactly as pictured & spotless. Complimentary breakfast is excellent with healthy choices, there is always coffee ready in the lobby. We prefer Hampton & will return.

I arrived at the hotel after a long and busy day in the San Jose area. After driving an hour along the windy roads of PCH at night, I arrived at the facility at around 10pm to find the small parking lot completely full. The hotel shares a lot with the nearby Dennys and signs clearly warn not to park... More

While I'm glad that you enjoyed your room and our welcoming front desk staff, I apologize that you experienced issues with parking. Typically we do have available space in our portion of the parking lot, as we have enough spaces for all of our rooms. As the entire back lot is shared with Denny's, the area directly behind our property... More

This was one of the best Hampton Inns that we have ever stayed at. Unique features that you don't see at most hotels. Breakfast was more like a meal there. Some traffic noise if in the front of hotel.
