Nice rooms, friendly staff, free breakfast, wifi and parking. The only thing is its location, which is kind of far away from everything there's is to do in Santa Cruz. Its great for a night or two, but if you are planning to do plenty in town then its not very convenient unless you dont mind driving.

It's true that we are about two miles from the beach and the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk -- while this is a pretty quick drive, we understand that it's a little long for an easy walk! We are less than a mile from Downtown Santa Cruz and we're very close to the highways, so if you're looking to visit Santa... More

We are very popular with families, especially those with children. While our small heated indoor pool may be a bit cozy for adults and teens, for kids our pool is quite the hit! This is especially true in the winter when it can get pretty chilly outside (by Santa Cruz standards, that is -- a mild 55 degrees!). I'm glad... More

walking into the lobby, you smell this terrible Body Odor. It was still there when i went down for breakfast the next day. Management : please spray your hotel lobby area as it's unbearable. rooms are ok, best thing was the free voucher for the power gym - 1 mile away.

Perfect breakfast, perfect parking, perfect room. VERY very clean and worth the price. Hampton should allow their guests to check out until noon though. Excellent internet service and the location is perfect as well. Very close to hwy.

We came to visit family. We are Hilton people, so Hampton Inn was our choice. The staff, the facility, the breakfast all exceeded our expectations. We found this property to be one of the "best" we've stayed in. Our children are moving to Santa Cruz, so our second home will be the Hampton Inn.

We know that Hampton has set the bar pretty high, and it means so much that we were able to exceed your expectations -- let alone be one of the best you've stayed in! We look forward to having you with us each time you visit your children, and hopefully we can be your home-away-from-home like we are for so... More

This hotel was very nice and comfortable for my little family for a weekend getaway. It's conveniently located off the highway but not too close that you're hearing cars all night. The room was super clean and this is definitely where I'll be staying whenever I visit Santa Cruz again!

I'm glad that our property worked so well for you and your family!

Thanks for the great review, and we look forward to seeing you on your next visit to Santa Cruz! More

With so many places to stay in Santa Cruz, we picked Hampton Inn, an old friend, and were never disappointed. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff was attentive yet never cloying. The breakfast was comprehensive, delicious and very fresh. As fine as a hotel can be, and at a fair price.

stayed here with my daughter for one night visiting friends; reviews were good and the location was right off the freeway; the room was very spacious, clean and updated; quiet; bed was very comfortable too. The staff were nice and helpful although our stay was very short. We had no problems at all.

A nice property a little off the tourist route with good price for a fine room. The free breakfast and WiFi were top notch; so was the free parking. We are here in the off season so got a good price. Walked to a "Jersey-style" Diner and a Denny's right next door.
