Always love Hampton Inn. Reception here borders on rude. Woman at check in was abrupt and mixed up first & last name. Called to correct for WiFI. Guy I talked to recognized mix up & corrected immediately. Tough getting elevator because of housekeeping taking up entire cab. Room was good. Way comfortable bed! View of freeway not so great, but... More

Friendly staff. Put me and my children in the room she anticipated being the quietest as she awaited the return of many celebratory wedding guests, and we were not disturbed. Free breakfast with good fresh fruit. Would recommend pre-stocking rooms with more than one towel. Bathroom door wouldn't stay open.

Stayed here on a short visit but service was excellent; hotel was spotless. They do not have evening meals on site but Margie's Diner was a short walk and the teenagers could get a quick dinner meal and we never had to - those kids are always hungry!

New hotel excellent facilities to include an indoor pool, hot tub and outdoor fire pit. Everything was super clean. Staff was accommodating and rooms were comfortable. Location was good, short drive to Cal Poly and the beach. Whole Foods, Costco, Target, Olive Garden, Old Navy, and others right around the corner. This is where I plan to stay when I... More

The hotel was clean, the staff was helpful, the room was spacious, and the breakfast was hot; more importantly to me was the ability to check in online ahead of time and simply pick up my keys at the front desk. Time was of the essence on this trip, and that little detail made all the difference to us. Thanks... More

I travel a LOT. I prefer Hilton hotels and have come to expect certain things when I stay at one. A water when I arrive - none offered here, no feather bedding as requested in my reservation - four feather pillows on my bed, a spare blanket in the closet since I don't like the heavy duvet they put on...

Clean and awesome staff - from front desk to maintenance. Would definitely stay here again anytime we are in town! The breakfast was absolutely delicious - usually there's a ridiculous line/wait but it was well set up and there was plenty of seating. Highly recommend this hotel!

This is the absolutely worst experience bar none in 30 years of traveling. I would avoid this property like the plague. The staff and especially manager was the worst I have ever encountered. They refused to let my daughter check in because of some ridiculous under 21 policy. My daughter was there for orientation at Cal Poly with 2 friends.... More

Other than this Hampton Inn being a much higher price than I'm used to paying at Hamptons, it was a nice stay. We like the Hampton inn experience as we typically take long trips that alternate camping and hotels. Laundry, pool, self serve breakfast, clean showers and rooms, safe environments and respectful staff. We did have to ask for a... More

Expected clean; not sure it was. Desk staff and kitchen staff were positive and service was a priority to them. Room not so great; carpet vacuumed? Question the standard of cleanliness. Mattresses were very uncomfortable. In an accessible room - like we had the worse mattresses; too high to be able to get out of wheel chair with ease. Bathroom... More
