“Great Harbor Views (and ADA)!”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

We have been staying here now for the past four years. Our daughter is now a senior at the nearby Cal State University Channel Islands. There are closer Hampton Inns to the college, but by staying here on the harbor, only 15-20 minutes away, we have a little "mini-vacation!" (Plus the price is the same!) My husband has multiple sclerosis and uses a wheelchair, so we always have stayed in one of their ADA rooms overlooking the harbor. The bedroom and bathroom are spacious and easy to manuever around in a wheelchair, plus it is wonderful to still have the balcony to use and enjoy the view of the harbor. The breakfast seems to be a little better than most Hampton Inns (and Patty always welcomes us with a hug and a smile!). One of the ADA rooms has a couch with a pull-out bed (which is nice if you have a child or an extra person). If you ask (especially in advance), you can have a mini-fridge and a microwave put in the room. There is a pizza place nearby that delivers to the hotel - perfect to eat on the balcony with your bottle of wine or chilled beer. A couple of the ADA rooms (320 and 220) are quite close to the ice machines and elevators and can be a little louder than the other ADA rooms, but usually everything quiets down not too late in the evening. There's a great little park next to the hotel that you can walk to (or roll to!), plus on summer weekends there are late afternoon/early evening concerts in the park that you can enjoy from your balcony with your own beverages/snacks. This a wonderful hotel with great views, a warm and helpful staff, and a very reasonable (low) cost! We highly recommend this Hampton Inn!

Room Tip: ADA rooms 320 and 220 are close to the elevators and to the ice machines which can be noisier.

I make it a point to stay at this particular Hampton Inn. The staff from front desk to food service to maintenance and housekeeping are all very pleasant and go out of their way to make you feel at home and to show you the local establishments for recreation. Of particular note is Patty, who makes the early morning breakfast such a great way to start the day!

Room Tip: Upper level - marina side are the best!

I have stayed here at the Hampton Inn several times, since my son and his wife moved up to the area. We always choose the bay view rooms. All of the rooms have a nice patio to sit out on. The staff greets you with a smile and are extremely helpful. The hotel is clean and secure from the lobby to the highest room. I have stayed for business as well as leisure and am very satisfied every time. The room did not generate any outside noise, which was a plus. The breakfast selection is quite appetizing. It caters to the young w/oatmeal and a variety of cereals, followed by pastries, eggs, (yes, they are the typical hotel eggs, not too bad), bacon or sausage, waffles made by you! Of course, coffees, teas, cocoa and juices. I highly recommend this hotel, you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Bay side gives you a view of the docked boats and a small park like area. The view facing the office...

This hotel is in a really nice location, on the harbor. It is clean and the staff nice. They let us in very early and the room was standard fare, a typical Hampton. Free Internet , breakfast room, and close to a nice bike path. A few things missing like a fridge in the room and no safe but other than that a good value and we would have no problem coming back. We like clean !

The Marina view rooms do provide a beautiful setting especially at sundown. Helpful staff and proximity to a couple decent seafood restaurants nearby. All in all a nice spot outside of LA for travelling up the Pacific Coast Highway. Near Thousand Oaks and Santa Barbara.

Room Tip: Marina view rooms are worth the extra 10$

The buffet attendant, Patty, is the ambassador of the hotel. She welcomes you each morning, and makes you feel like you're the only person in the room. Great to see employees who are truly engaged and love their work, because then it isn't.
