At first I was worried about the location close to PCH and the 17th Freeway intersection. I was given room #304 which was farthest away from street noise. I never heard any cars at night and the room was perfectly quite. The front desk service was exceptional. They remembered my first name during the entire stay. The room at all...

Horrible experience. I was accosted by multiple transients while unloading my car. I was only there for an hour before I checked out. I was right next to the freeway and the noise was horrible. The lady at the front desk said there is a high chance someone will break into my car. I was so uncomfortable and I didn't...

BaysideHotels, Guest Relations Manager at Hampton Inn Santa Cruz, responded to this review

While we have spoken via email, I would like to acknowledge your TripAdvisor review and apologize again for your shocking experience. I can guarantee you that we have never heard of anything like this occurring at our property, and it is very distressing to hear that you encountered this troubled and unfortunate woman. We work with our local police department,...

We have had to stay overnight in Santa Cruz several times for personal business. It is painful to have to pay resort-town summer prices when you are not vacationing for fun--especially when it is an unpleasant experience with dirty and unkempt rooms as when we stayed at another well known chain motel. This time we tried the Hampton which we...

Enjoyed our stay at this Hampton Inn. Though not close to the beach this hotel is within walking distance to some restaurants and is right off major highway and not too far a drive to the major attractions. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The decor seems recently updated throughout. We had a very comfortable stay.

It was a clean and friendly stay. Had a pleasant complimentary breakfast in the morning and a swimming incase you don't like the ocean. Front desk staff was friendly and very accomodating. This was my first stay here and I can't wait to stay again in the future.

The rooms let the noise come in from outside. A bit over prices for the room quality. Could of been the area but not really worth the price for one night. They had an average breakfast set up the guests in the morning. The swimming pool was a bi small and closed too early for you to enjoy it.

This place was awesome. We didn't have any problems. Everyone was super friendly. Very kid friendly. The breakfast the next morning was AMAZING. I have never had such nice continental breakfast. We were able to park in the back of the hotel and there was access from the parking in the back into the hotel with your key card. The...

Very easy to find and great freeway access. Friendly staff and very clean rooms. Easy check in/out procedures. Close to several restaurants and main attractions. Would recommend and stay again if we return to Santa Cruz.

Very clean hotel, good staff. But wasn't sure my car would be there the next morning based on the area and warning signs posted in the parking lot. Only real issue inside was a noisy A/C unit in the room.

A bad value in a lousy section of town. The breakfast was poor even by Hampton standards. The worst Hampton I have stayed in. The staff for the most part did not go out its way to be helpful. While I am loyal to the Hilton brand, I would not stay here again
