I like this Hampton Inn very much. It is always clean and the staff are always friendly and helpful. The manager at this hotel, David, is super nice. I've been staying at this hotel for about three years and have never had a bad experience.

Great staff helped with a big family wedding weekend. Early check ins, late check outs and even on the spot discount on rooms. Bryan, Andrew, the staff and the manager (David?) this weekend really went above and beyond!

Awesome service, excellent staff and very clean. Loved the complimentary breakfast. I would definitely stay here again. My son got married near by and the staff was very helpful to our friends and family.

We celebrated my son's birthday here. The hotel is clean and new. The staff is courteous and helpful. They have lots of amenities including a pool, jacuzzi, free wifi and free hot breakfast. The hotel is well located close to the university and some shops with convenient freeway access.

I booked this location last minute for our team that was racing about 10 minutes away. The front desk personnel was very accommodating and answered all my questions. 2 days prior to our arrival, the GM David Chang contacted me to be proactive and sort out our room assignments. He was very resourceful. The location itself was very clean and... More

Stayed one night with my family. Its a nice location and the overall staff, atmosphere and area was pleasant. The bed was the most comfortable I've ever slept in (comparing with other hotels I've stayed). I want to order a bed just like it. I would stay there again.

Seriously, black out curtain,s gull track rail - get them. No one that wants to sleep in wants a room that allows light in at 6am because you can't get the curtain accommodations down. Get rid of the boxed eggs, they taste and look terrible.

Tremendous service from Andrew, David, and the rest of the staff. Check-In for a group of 44 was the smoothest I have ever been a part of due to preparedness and desire of Andrew to create the most professional and positive experience possible. Highly recommend this hotel due to quality of service and facilities.

Short and sweet, we had a smooth check in (used the digital check in the day before) and check out. Everything was clean and ship-shape. Front desk was friendly and outgoing and accommodating. Breakfast was typical fare and there was plenty of food. I would always stay at Hampton if they were all this nice.

We had two connecting rooms on a trip to Legoland - we had kids, grandma, the whole bunch with us. We arrived late evening and Amanda was there and just couldn't do enough to help as she stocked us up with extra towels, toothbrushes, anything we needed. Rooms were comfortable, great rest. Breakfast was standard Hampton Inn - but perfect... More
