Hampton Inn Santa Cruz
Ranked #23 of 54 Hotels in Santa Cruz
Reviewed April 24, 2007

Based on the reviews and rating given to the Hampton Inn, we booked a room during our recently trip. The desk clerk was very helpful and friendly and the room appeared to be clean. When we pulled back the covers, it was obvious that the sheets weren't changed after the previous couple used the bed. The desk clerk (only person working at the hotel) was quick to come and change the bedding, but I don't think I'll be staying at a Hampton Inn again.

We stayed at this Hampton Inn for 1 night, after flying in from the UK and before driving down Highway 1. The hotel was exactly what we were looking for. It was very clean, the beds were very comfortable and it is very convenient for Highway 1. The staff were very friendly and efficient. We thought that the parking was good too.

We love this hotel. The 2nd floor patio was great and so was the view. You walk thru the awesome garden/pool area to go to the happy hour where there is a small snack buffet and discounts on certain drinks. Friendly staff at desk, dining and other.
They give you a breakfast buffet(fruit for vegans)
They answer all your travel questions.
Only prob was the hideaously noisy adults with all the kids that screamed till 10. Adults screamed all nite long. However, I was TOLD by my boyfriend that that is normal on wknds.
The staff made sure the brats, I mean, kids were out of the pool by l0 at our request and it was closing time. We recommend this highly. Rooms not fancy but this was great thanks hampton inn aptos

I was nicely surprised by my stay here. The beds are incredibly comfortable and the rooms are clean. The breakfast is a Hampton Inn standard, cereals and hot food options, that are fine for a free breakfast. The hotel staff is incredibly nice and helpful, printing directions and making local dining recommendations. There is a pool but no workout facility which is the only negative thing I can say about the place.

This was one of the cleanest places I've ever stayed. The staff was so friendly, gave us great directions to everywhere we needed to go, they printed out maps, took the time to go over the directions with us and were extremely nice.

I was very impressed with the rooms, everything was clean, and the hotel parking was also excellent. The inside of the hotel is very nice, and they include a HOT breakfast as well as coffee 24 hrs a day. All the rooms face the INSIDE of the hotel so you don't ever have to go outside for anything which is great when its FREEZING outside. Also, I had to call the front desk for the wireless internet code and they were extremely friendly and in a world of ever decreasing customer service the Hampton hotel was a nice break.

A nice new Hampton Inn. Pleasent people, clean room, overall very nice. Only negative was that the breakfast buffet (free) was out of lots of food by 9 am. Hardly the end of the world.

My husband and I only spent 1 night at this hotel on our way down Highway 1. The check-in process was smooth and the staff were friendly. The room was large (we had 2 double beds in our room) and the beds were comfortable and had a choice of pillows.

The breakfast the next morning had a huge variety of options, hot and cold and all self service so was very relaxed. We paid $115 for the night so felt it was good value for money.
