Everything was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was typical breakfast fare. Staff was exceptional. Well-lighted and 24 hour surveillance of parking lot. Stayed two nights and would return there in future.

While this hotel isn't on the main boardwalk, and some may see that as a negative, it's actually quite a positive if you want to be able to relax and get away from the noise of the boardwalk after a while. Besides, the accommodations are very very clean and comfortable, the staff goes out of their way to make sure... More

This hotel is easy to find close enough to the freeway and the beach. Offers a great continental breakfast. Yummy baked goods and even a waffle maker. The rooms are roomy and nicely furnished. Very clean. My only complaint is that the A/C unit was a little loud. Everyone was really nice. The pool was a little small ( although... More

We stayed here as a central location for exploring areas north and south of Santa Cruz. It is less than 30 min to Año Nuevo State Park, and less than an hour to Salinas, Monterey, Carmel, and Los Lobos State Park. It is right next to Hwy 1 so very convenient. The hotel was clean and quiet, and has a... More

Is easy to get that rest you need at te he property. Excellent helpful staff and you will never feel locked in a room here. Although the room amenities are great the rest of the hotel will will serve you well. First rate lounge area, computers, and fresh coffee and food! I can recommend this property for families or that... More

My son and I stayed at the Hampton Inn in Santa Cruz for a couple of days while he checked out UC Santa Cruz. From arrival to departure we were very pleased with the accommodations and friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. Couldn't have asked for more.

We stayed at this hotel when our son was looking at UC Santa Cruz. While it is not on the boardwalk, it is not far from the school so it was convenient for us. The staff at this hotel was exceptionally fantastic. We arrived late, and the person at the desk greeted us cheerfully and helpfully. We wanted to stay... More

Love this hotel, it's the only one I ever stay at while in Santa Cruz. Always clean, love the bed, love the free breakfast, especially the make your own waffles! and I love the coffee bar! My only complaint is I wish they had more parking!

We spent two days in Santa Cruz to place the ashes of my Wife's Sister and Brother-in-Law in the Ocean. Everything was very great with our stay at the Hampton. I would recommend the Hampton at Santa Cruz. We stay at Hampton when we can everywhere we go. My son lives in Windsor, CA and we frequently stay there at... More

This was a first trip to Santa Cruz. This seemed to be the best 'chain' hotel around. Hotel is located on a busy road and intersection. Location is far from the pier and downtown restaurants. Parking was easy to find. Our room was noisy - due to the air unit AND noisy neighbors. Tried to drown out the noisy neighbors... More

I'm sorry that you experienced issues with noise during your recent stay at our property. In the future, please contact the Front Desk and we will be happy to ask any noisy neighbors to be considerate of their fellow guests. I'm surprised to read that your bathroom had an unpleasant odor -- I'll make sure to speak with our housekeeping... More
