I originally thought the Hampton Inn was an old hotel. But was pleasantly surprised at how nice, clean and updated it was. The bed was very comfortable. And the breakfast was very good. If all the Hampton Inn's are like this, I will definitely stay there again!!

This Hampton Inn is small, but very clean, nice rooms, great complimentary breakfast. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. The pool is VERY small, but it was clean and we enjoyed it. Internet was spotty and it was maybe a little pricey for the hotel. Will stay there again.

This property is just off the freeway but a short drive to the happening downtown. Front desk staff was very professional and made great dinner recommendations, map and list of restaurants. The room was very clean with a very comfortable bed and mini fridge. Hot breakfast is included; however, It was average and surprisingly served on paper plates and plastic... More

This Hampton Inn was very clean (as expected) and the staff was friendly. The breakfast was a real winner. One of my party has diabetes and celiac meaning there are food limitations but this breakfast provided scrambled eggs and turkey sausages and fruit all of which were perfect. There were many other selections as well. Thanks for this wonderful and... More

This hotel was nice. It was not super close to the beach, but it did have decent access via a short 5 minute car ride. Some of the hotels closer to the beach seemed to be hard to access due to traffic. It was easy to get in and out of this hotel.

My 95 year old father drove by himself from Los Angeles County to Santa Cruz to spend 12 days with me this summer. I had to work for five days, and had seven unconnected days off. We stayed at the Hampton Inn, about four miles from my County job, from his arrival on Thursday night until the following Wednesday, when... More

Unfortunately, hotel policies such as special discounted rates for government employees and government tax exemption are not available at all properties due to a number factors. In this case, county government employee discount rates are honored on a property-by-property basis and they are not offered by the Hampton Inn Santa Cruz. I'm sorry if you were disappointed by this policy.... More

Our family stayed here based on TripAdvisor reviews and we truly enjoyed our stay. The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and with plenty of room and the complimentary breakfast was amazing! I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Santa Cruz.

This was a great place to stay. The rooms are very clean and the staff is so friendly. My trip was last minute idea as I was at a convention in another city and wanted to see other parts of the State before I had to leave. Hampton is always a good idea for a great time and wonderful experience.... More

We stayed at this Hampton passing through for one night. As Diamond members we've been in quite a few Hiltons, Garden Inns, and Hamptons along the way. This particular Hampton was just okay. The rooms were a bit drab, but clean. We were in room 210 which was a good quiet location away from the street and in a back... More

We had a room reserved here and while we were in Big Sur, realized that we wanted to push the room reservation back one night. I didn't have any phone service, so went to a location where I could call to change the date of the reservation. I had it booked with points, so you would think that the hotel... More

I'm sorry that you had such a disappointing experience with our property during your recent trip. At the property level, we are actually unable to change Hilton HHonors point stays when within 24 hours of their projected time of arrival, as it would result in the expenditure of points despite the shortening of the stay. As for our front desk... More
