Very clean and staff are friendly and helpful; just don't stay in room 217 or 218 because you'll be staring at the tiled roof to the hotel entrance, and maybe if you stand on your tip toes, you'll be able to glimpse about a foot of sky!

I'm a Hilton Honors member so I've stayed at many Hilton properties throughout the country. The Hampton Inn SC what you expect from a Hilton property: clean, comfortable beds, great breakfast. This hotel is in a weird location right off of the highway but it's just a mile and a half from downtown. The staff were friendly, room was clean... More

Parking needs to accommodate larger vehicles Need to make sure blanket n bed skirts are clean too. Make sure cutting board for food prep is clean with a clean sponge. Make sure cutting board is clean. Make sure there are no roaches in the hotel room.

I'm sorry that you had difficulty parking during your recent stay at our property. It's true that many of our parking spaces are for compact cars, but during your next visit, make sure to check our rear parking lot, as we do offer parking spaces for larger vehicles. I can assure you that we follow the strict cleaning guidelines that... More

For the price, you would expect the best of the Hampton Inn - which at most locations is a very clean, quiet and nice room. Not at this location. Old, noisy and smells of a roadside hotel. NOT worth the money paid for.

I'm sorry that you were disappointed by your recent stay at our property. I am surprised to read your complaints, as typically the comments we hear from our guests state just the opposite: that our rooms look modern and beautiful, that they are surprised by how quiet our rooms are, and that our housekeeping standards are truly excellent. It is... More

Right off the highway at the entrance to Santa Cruz, this hotel is perfectly situated for a quick, easy stay away from the congestion of near-beach areas. Good local diners and coffee shops just a couple of blocks away. Pacific Avenue shopping an easy bus ride or mile walk away as well. As for the hotel itself - clean and... More

Thanks for this great review! We get people asking about our unique layout all the time! We were designed to be a Hampton Inn, but our unique size (we're the smallest Hampton Inn in the world!) seemed more fitting to have a central atrium. I'm glad that our staff and rooms were to your liking, and I'll mention to Jorge... More

When in Santa Cruz I usually stay at Scott's valley Hilton yet the Hampton is back up when Hilton full or prices are dramatically different. Staff is always pleasant and accommodating. Rooms are nice and breakfast is very good. It's close to freeway and ocean street has a lot of traffic - so noisy. Best to ask for room opposite... More

Our stay in Santa Cruz was a last minute change of plans and the Hampton was the pretty much the only hotel available. Although close to the highway, our stay was much better than anticipated. The décor is a bit outdated, but the room was quiet and clean and most importantly, the beds were very comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was... More

We were only staying one night in the area for Whale Watch tour in Moss Landing next day. Room was fresh and clean, smelled clean and decent breakfast for the kids in the morning. Would stay again and recommend it to others looking for clean and don't care to be on the beach.

We are used to Hampton Inn accommodations. Technically, this had the expected characteristics. When we arrived at 3 PM, only two rooms were left. The hotel was fully booked for the night. The clerk was deviously vague in his description. We ended up in 203, right over the elevator equipment. But Ocean Street is a really busy thoroughfare and the... More
