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....

the hotel has a lot of transients on the property and transiting through the property. Made me concerned about thefts from our vehicle in the parking lot. Staff says they only usually have thefts of things attached to vehicles, such as bikes, skis, etc...

The staff at this hotel is very friendly and the hotel itself is in good condition. Even though they are in the process of upgrading the whole third floor our stay there was not inconvenienced in any way. The hotel is in a location that is convenient but you would be wise to park your car in the front as...

I always stay here when I am in Santa Cruz. Love this hotel. It has everything I need & want, plus Hilton Honors points! But this time, there were kids staying there that were LOUD early in the morning. Running down the halls, screaming, etc. I mostly blame the parents, who should NOT allow their kids to behave that way,...

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.
