We were visiting in Southern Cal and stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights. This place is clean with very helpful staff. Rooms are not new but very clean and in good order. The Breakfast are and food were good. The surrounding are feel safe with another Hilton property next door.

My aunt and I were traveling around Southern California and spent a night at this nice hotel within the Hilton brand. It was new, clean and nicely decorated. We joked with the staff that of all places we visited they had the best steering luggage carts, but it really was true. Everything seemed well maintained and the staff was polite,...

I have issue to resolve with management and lawyer. (See below) I checked in on Monday (11/28). I found a bedbug walking around the pillow. After killing it, I slept wearing full cloth on me. Next day (11/29), I found another bedbug moving around on the bed. I killed it and took a picture of it. I could not stay...

A pleasant lodging, great weather, good staff, and located in a great spot for shoppers and diners. It just needs a bar to be top rate. A great fitness room, always coffee, good walking area. On the downside, it gets a bit expensive during the week!

Friendly welcome. Very Helpful Staff. Clean Room. Kudos to Barbara in the Breakfast Service Area. She not only was gracious, anxious to be helpful, but came to my rescue BIG TIME with a warm smile & outgoing personality. She went above & beyond each day we stayed. What a comfort. Recommend her for honors!

First, this is a nice Hampton Inn and very well located. But, the HH digital check-in left a lot to be desired. We checked in on line at 11:19am and chose room 317 because we wanted to be on the top floor so there was no noise above us. We arrived at 4:30 pm and were told our room was...

I did a one night stay for a business trip and I was happy with the hotel. The online checking was a nice feature as I knew which room I was in before I got to the hotel and also knew my room would be ready. The room was nice and spacious, the hotel was quiet and the bed comfortable....

I always feel like I'm at home when at this Hampton. The experience starts when I first walk in and I'm welcomed back. The rooms are a bit dated but the breakfast and hospitality make that a mute point. Barb always makes the start of my day pleasurable. She remembers everyone! She treats each guest the same.

First time in this area for an overnight stay - came in town to attend a party -location was Ok and typical Hampton but just a little worn. Front desk check in staff was very helpful. Do not use local cab service for transportation as they are not reliable.

I am currently on a long stint of business travel such that it is cheaper for me to stay in a hotel than rent when I am actually near my home town. I stayed in this place using Hilton Honors points.
