We stay in many Hampton properties when we travel across the US several times a year, and as the saying goes "some are better than others." This one appears to be older and possibly not originally a Hampton. The first impression upon entering the lobby here was not great! But it could be, with a modern update! As other reviews... More

Always feel most welcome when I stay at the Hampton. The accommodation are comfy and clean. The staff is always helpful, courteous and personable. The hotel is always clean and "feels fresh" when I arrive. Again, the Hampton - my home away from home.

Good breakfast; terrible hotel. Rooms are unclean. Staff is unfriendly. Would rather sleep in my car. The hotel needs to be remodeled; the last time it was remodeled there were dinosaurs along Ocean Street. I think it's time it was razed.

Great Hilton Service at affordable prices! Had family in for the weekend after a conference in San Jose. Everyone loved this place. Excellent service attentive and friendly staff. Short distance to the beach and boardwalk.

Smaller Hampton with atrium. Staff were nice and everything did what it should. Rates are expensive and the car parking is very very tight. Dont bring your new Benz here as it will risk getting scratched in small parking lot

The staff were all friendly throughout our stay. We had to check on early to go to a wedding which they were able to accommodate. All of the staff asked if there was anything they could do and wished us a good day. The noise in our room, however would make me think long and hard about staying again.

I went for an overnight with my 13 y/o daughter and her friends. The rooms were spotless and well appointed. The front desk was super helpful. From when I made the reservation to when I checked in and out. They even threw in a gift basket of martini's sparking cider for my daughter and her friends (it was a celebration).... More

Upon arrival I was a bit skeptical.There were many homeless around the area, so felt a bit un-easy. But again it is Santa Cruz... It has a well lit parking lot so that made it better. very accommodating staff at check in All went well.
