“Perfect for what it is”
Reviewed December 31, 2011

Easy to find, at the corner of Westminster Ave. and Seal Beach Blvd., with dining and shopping options close at hand.
The staff seems friendly, and the room was clean.
Our particular room had a walk-in shower rather than a tub; fine with us.
Don't know that this would be a choice for a longer vacation, to say, Disneyland (although the park is not that far from here), but for a day or two it is just fine.

This hotel is about six miles from my house but my wife was having some long lost friends stay the night and I wasn't ready to hear them reminisce about high school. Besides there were some very important college football games being broadcast!

I was trying to keep the cost under $100.00. I had hopes armed with a AAA card and a AARP card that as a last minute walk-in, I might get a more favorable rate. Particularly when I cited another Hampton in nearby Cypress as being cheaper, and a Courtyard by Marriott, also in Cypress, being even cheaper than that. Alas it was not to be. I received the advertised rate which with bed tax came out to about $130.00.

I requested the highest floor hoping to avoid any noise. Granted by being on the fourth floor there was no one above me, but the floor was apparently popular so the couple with the two kids next to me was a bit of an intrusion in my bachelor-for-a-night serenity. And because this hotel is bordered by two busy thoroughfares, Seal Beach Blvd and Westminster Blvd, there was some street noise. But all in all once the kids went to bed and the street traffic died down, it was a fairly quiet night.

The room was comfortable with the standard amenities. I thought it a bit unusual that the king sized bed was against the outside bathroom wall rather than against the next room's wall, but it worked out fine since the bureau with the TV was near the window. Frankly the location of the bed probably reduced noise from the adjoining room.

The bathroom seemed a little odd. The toilet seemed to be particularly low. The shower head particularly high (about a foot above my head and I am six feet tall). There was no bathtub. The high shower head was wonderful except the water saving feature reduced water pressure so much it was hard to rinse my hair. I don't take baths so having just a shower was fine with me but I had to wonder if that was true of all the rooms or just some of the rooms. If you are a bath person you will want to ask.

Breakfast was composed of sausages, French toast fingers along with the usual assortment of fruit, yogurt, bagels, English muffins, mini-muffins, bread, cereal and, of course, the ubiquitous waffler maker. The gal overseeing the breakfast room was on top of keeping everything stocked and cleaning up the tables as guests left. Knowing some hotels are not nearly as efficient, I appreciated her diligence.

I did not use the pool or work-out room so I can't comment on that. This hotel sits adjacent to a Boeing facitility as well as in close proximity to a group of industrial buildings. It is also not far from the 405 and 22 freeways and could be considered a good option for an event in Huntington Beach, Seal Beach or Cypress. Out the back door there is a Del Taco restaurant. Out the front door is a Starbucks, a Subway and an Japanese restaurant. I could see staying here on business for a few days and being very comfortable.

I can't give it five stars because it really wasn't extraordinary. It was, however, about what you would expect and frankly to watch a few football games and avoid the coffee klatch at home, that was all I expected.

Room Tip: Top floor facing Boeing. The other side of the building sits over a busy, 24-hour Del Taco restauran...

Our soccer team stayed at this hotel May 2011. It was a nice hotel, clean and roomy. Two queen beds and a sofa, very comfortable. Served a nice breakfast which saved us money in eating out. We will definitely stay again. Parking was a bit of a problem due to the fact it was so busy that weekend for the soccer tournament, but that's to be expected in a situation like that.

Expectionaly helpful staff. Helped me with directions and sugestions for resturants. I had to call them several times because my GPS wasn't working.
First room they gave me had a wall or overhang in front of the window. I went back to the front desk and got it changed. The air conditioner kept malfunctioning. Luckly it wasn't too hot. They did come up and try to fix it. I have read that other people also had trouble with units at this hotel. You could hear every door close up and down the hall.
Nice spacious room,comfortable bed. Location was convient. couple of resturanmts right across from the hotel. Close to the beach and pier. Liked Seal beach by the pier. It was windy that day but restrooms were clean, and close and you could walk up to the pier and to the streets of Seal Beach to resturants and shops. People were very friendly.

This is the third time we have stayed at the Seal Beach Hampton Inn. It is amazingly quiet. The rooms are large and the bed comfortable. They have a great spread for the free breakfast. It is just minutes away from the beach.

I like staying at the Hampton inn, but the one in seal beach is really one of a kind. Right away the decor sets a really pleasant vibe. Everyone was so helpful, and I was especially pleased with the breakfast.

Although this hotel is in Seal Beach, we prefer to stay here when visiting Long Beach. It is located off the 405 freeway and close to the PCH. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The internet and parking are free. The room was very spacious for having two queen beds. Hotel staff is friendly and helpful.
