Hotel was not first choice, but it served the purpose of a clean and nice place to stay for a one night business trip. Used the electronic check-in service provided to HHonors program members and found that convenient. Would stay again if preferred hotel was not available.

Hampton Inn Santa Cruz is located directly off the highway coming into town making it very convenient. For us the most important "musts" in a hotel are cleanliness and a comfortable bed. This hotel had both, room and other areas (dining, lobby etc) were spotless. Breakfast was a good combination of hot and cold food and an assortment of fruit... More

This hotel was exactly what I would expect from Hampton Inn - friendly staff, clean room, well kept facilities, decent breakfast food (for what it is). We stayed for a quick overnight trip to Santa Cruz, and the hotel fit the bill.

My wife and I stayed here the night of 4/25 to attend the 50th Anniversary celebration of the founding of UC Santa Cruz. The room was clean and comfortable, though the queen bed was not the greatest . . . free internet and breakfast in the morning made it easy to stay in touch, as well as grab a quick... More

This hotel is convenient to the Santa Cruz Business Area and the primary travel corridors. It is not located in the scenic part of town. I stay here for business trips and it meets on all of promises that the Hampton makes. The guest rooms are clean and in excellent condition, the breakfast room is clean and well stocked in... More

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
