This hotel is in a good location; parking however is shared with a restaurant, there are warning signs about not being responsible for your vehicle's safety. this is the smallest Hampton I've been in.

We are, in fact, the smallest Hampton Inn in the world! Our size, along with our lovely atrium layout, makes our property quite unique, and a must-see for all you Hampton fans out there! Thanks for taking the time to review our property, and we hope to see you again the next time you're in the area! More

As far as Hampton Inns go, this building is a little bit dated but the rooms look like they have been recently updated. However it seems that a number of the rooms either were previously smoking rooms or some guests still smoke in them. My initial room (218) smelled overpoweringly like cigarettes and pot smoke, with an attempt to cover... More

I'm sorry that you experienced issues with housekeeping during your recent stay with us. While we do not offer any smoking rooms (in fact, we have been a non-smoking hotel for over a decade) it is most likely that your room's previous occupant had smoked inside. I am sorry to hear that the cleaning efforts that we utilized were insufficient... More

Have stayed at this well appointed hotel many time with a child in college in the area. Staff is efficient and hospitable. For the price, these accomodations are the whole package. Up to date, spotless rooms, great amenities, quiet when good night sleep is needed. Just up graded comp. breakfast, like all the new items that have been added. Our... More

It might be my first time booking this hotel for my family. We love the location, cleaniness, and the complimentary breakfast served at Hampton Inn. Hot breakfast is a plus. Staff are friendly. It was a good deal. We had a wonderful stay with family from afar. Thank you, Hampton Inn Santa Cruz staff!

If you want sleep, do not stay here. It sounds like the highway is going through your room. Finally gave up and looked for another hotel at 5 am. Bed was also hard and lumpy. Most of the staff were wonderful, but manager was rude and made an already unpleasant experience even more unpleasant. Went to a Best Western Suites... More

I'm so sorry that you experienced issues with road noise at our property and that you found your mattress uncomfortable. I can assure you that road noise and bed discomfort are not common complaints, and in fact most of our guests share that they are quite pleased with the quietness of their rooms and our fantastic beds, but I apologize...

The hotel was nice, but the surrounding area could have been better. The hotel had no sauna. The staff was nice and the breakfast was satisfactory. The cable tv went off several times. the staff came to adjust the wiring in the back and the problem was fixed.

We were pleasantly surprised to find the hotel clean, friendly staff, and convenient location. The rates were good and the complimentary breakfast satisfying with choices for everyone. The most important aspect of the hotel for me was the note on the bedpost stating that all bed linens were washed after each stay, including the bedspread!! I will always go back... More

We spent 4 nights at this hotel and really enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and smell good. Very friendly staff! Hotel managers were there to greet the guests daily which is unusual. Daily breakfast was decent ... This is a well managed hotel! Wish more places like this one.

This is a nice hotel. I have stayed in many Hampton Inns and am generally pleased with my stay. The bed was very comfortable, the room clean, a good shower and the wireless internet was up to speed. Once again, the breakfast has disappointed me. I like oatmeal but this was stale and the condiments (brown sugar and slivered almonds)... More
