Great hotel. The room was clean, the lobby was nice and the free breakfast was pretty good. The rooms were nicely appointed and the hotel was quiet, especially for being fully booked. The parking area is pretty small and not friendly to big SUVS. The staff was friendly and its a great location for visting the surrounding beaches.

Overall, great stay at this hotel! From location to price, it's a great place to consider when traveling. The only con was there was no restaurant in the hotel, but there were at least plenty of options throughout Santa Cruz for a good eat, and a good bar.

We stayed here one night while visiting UCSC. We found the location convenient to both the city and the campus. The room was very clean. We especially liked the clean duvet/blankets. They also supply a free breakfast. The only con is the lack of parking. We parked on the street. If we come back to Santa Cruz this is where... More

Enjoyed our stay at the Hampton. Good clean rooms, good breakfast and staff very helpful and friendly. Not far from the beach and downtown. Good to go by car as it is far from hotel but it is a nice walk if you wish to go for a long walk. The room was quiet and not noisy. We had great... More

Stayed here for 2 nights towards the end of February. Overall very pleased. Hotel is right off the freeway on Ocean Street and very easy to find. While on a busy street, very quiet. Hotel was very nice on the inside. Room was big, clean. Bed was very comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was typical Hampton spread but it was... More

A great hotel overall, good breakfast; clean, comfortable, big rooms; great helpful staff; great decor; free wifi; flat screen tv; next door to a Denneys, late night snacking :). A bit pricy but I guess quality does always cost more.

Lovely hotel, attentive staff, pleasant rooms, good location, nice extras (e.g. breakfast), many conveniences. Plan to return when visiting family members who live nearby. Had previously stayed at "inns" acrfoss the street. Will never make that mistake again.

DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL!!! I stayed there and my car was broken into (it was parked right next to the door) and the hotel staff did nothing aside from offering to help call the police. Not only that, but they don't have any cameras pointed at the parking lot, so they could not even help me find out... More

I stated last year after a one night stay that this was one the best if not the best experience at a Hampton Inn during our almost 20 year association with Hilton. This year we stayed two nights and we received the same great service as last year. If you want a super place to stay while in Santa Cruz... More
