This was the first time we have stayed I the Santa Cruz HAMPTON INN. We would definitely recommend it to other travelers. The center atrium makes the location very bright and cheery. The layout of the rooms made it easy to get around and find your way to the elevator. The pool is rather small, but then you are very... More

My daughter and I stayed here using my HHonors points during a 3-day holiday weekend. The digital check-in and being able to select our own room in advance was a nice feature. When we first arrived, I was a little concerned that the room would be noisy as the hotel is right off the freeway and right on the street.... More

The hotel it's self was nice, would have been easier to find if it had more signage. We didn't have the best experience but not the worst either...the room we were in 220 was extremely loud...the hotel is right on a busy street but it doesn't have dual pane windows to help with all the noise outside. With that being... More

While I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us based on your rating of our property, I apologize that you experienced road noise during the night. I can assure you that this is not typically an issue for most of our guests, due to the fact that we do indeed have double-pane glass windows in our rooms --... More

Staff at this hotel is very attentive & friendly. We stayed here for a week to move our daughter to college- at one point we had 3 cars for a couple of days and the hotel was very accommodating to this. There was ample parking. We did not want to be downtown or on the Boardwalk so this was good... More

Pretty good stay. Friendly front desk staff, gave me precise directions about things to do and places to go to. The room was clean, the bathroom was clean. The only negative I want to point out is the breakfast. It was OK, I have stayed at Hampton Inn's in the past and their breakfasts are usually very good. This one... More

Great place to stay and meet friendly staff. Close to the freeway and the places we needed to go or see. Breakfast was just great and the rooms were very clean. Everything was just wonderful. More than likely will use this hotel again on next weekend out for some fun.

Excellent accommodations, very friendly and helpful staff. This was our second multi-day stay (previous stay in 2014), and we came back because of the service and excellent faciities experienced in 2014.

I liked my room, however it was small. The bathroom seemed small, and that was for just one guest. The breakfast was hot and decent. I felt secure in this hotel, despite the somewhat sketchy location (homeless/drug users abound in Santa Cruz).

This Hampton is a very friendly, service-oriented hotel. The staff greeted us each time we came in or out. They helped all they could with every request. It is next door to Denny's and close to everything in Santa Cruz yet right at Route 1, 17 and Graham Hill and 9 without having to go through traffic. It is a... More
