The reason I gave this a 3 star was because I expected more from this Hampton Inn. It was noisy, there was no laundry facility, no hot tub and the boiled eggs had their shells on them. Homeless, I presume, people were wandering around in the parking lot behind the hotel and the adjacent restaurant parking lot so we moved...

Right off the freeway, 5 minutes from Woodstock Pizza, great staff and a free breakfast?!?! Boardwalk was extremely close, plenty of options within walking distance, room was great, I was actually surprised to learn they planned on some remodel work the week after we stayed.

Very nice customer service. While they hotel is being remodeled you'd never know. Still clean and quiet at night. Yes, there was hammering during the day, but I was away enjoying Santa Cruz. Santa Cruz itself was amazing. While I've always had good luck staying at Hampton hotels, this one was the best. Very friendly help, they recommended nice dinner...

My family spent the night here and it is consistent for my expectations of Hampton Inn. Parking was easy, the room was clean, the guests were quiet, and the breakfast filled my family for 'free'. Wall-mounted A/C units that you find at hotels are never perfectly sealed (unless you're in a high-rise), so you can expect to hear road noise...

I often book family members in this hotel because it is safe, convenient and a good value. The staff are diligent and kind. This means a lot to me because some of my family members are elderly or disabled. The pool and spa are a nice bonus.

This is not a bad little Hampton Inn in Santa Cruz. The locations can be a bit noisy as it is on the main road so if you sleep light ask for a room facing the rear. The room was clean and tidy and housekeeping did a nice job each day. The breakfast buffet is sufficient and standard for a...

Thin walls. Poor location right near freeway. No fitness center. Dinky little pool. Peeling paint outside our room. Breakfast was just OK. For $160 I expect a lot more than this. Would not stay there again. There are many lower priced options.

I am sorry to read that your stay at our property was not what you were expecting. Typically our guests do not encounter road noise or noise from neighboring rooms, but I apologize if this was your experience. It is true that, as the smallest Hampton Inn, we do lack some amenities of the larger Hampton properties, such as fitness...

We had 3 rooms to accommodate our family all were clean & were close in proximity as we asked. The staff was helpful & very friendly. Easy to park & the indoor pool was a nice respite for our young family!
