Perfect breakfast, perfect parking, perfect room. VERY very clean and worth the price. Hampton should allow their guests to check out until noon though. Excellent internet service and the location is perfect as well. Very close to hwy.

We came to visit family. We are Hilton people, so Hampton Inn was our choice. The staff, the facility, the breakfast all exceeded our expectations. We found this property to be one of the "best" we've stayed in. Our children are moving to Santa Cruz, so our second home will be the Hampton Inn.

We know that Hampton has set the bar pretty high, and it means so much that we were able to exceed your expectations -- let alone be one of the best you've stayed in! We look forward to having you with us each time you visit your children, and hopefully we can be your home-away-from-home like we are for so...

We were there to visit grandchildren at UC Santa Cruz. Hotel is convenient to the freeway. Room was very comfortable for myself and my disabled wife. The room was accessible. She uses a 4 wheel rollator. Breakfast was terrific. Everything was attractively presented and the flavors were very good.

This hotel was very nice and comfortable for my little family for a weekend getaway. It's conveniently located off the highway but not too close that you're hearing cars all night. The room was super clean and this is definitely where I'll be staying whenever I visit Santa Cruz again!

I'm glad that our property worked so well for you and your family! It's true that while we're not within easy walking distance from the beach, we're conveniently located for easy access to Downtown Santa Cruz and Highways 1 and 17. Thanks for the great review, and we look forward to seeing you on your next visit to Santa Cruz!

With so many places to stay in Santa Cruz, we picked Hampton Inn, an old friend, and were never disappointed. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff was attentive yet never cloying. The breakfast was comprehensive, delicious and very fresh. As fine as a hotel can be, and at a fair price.

stayed here with my daughter for one night visiting friends; reviews were good and the location was right off the freeway; the room was very spacious, clean and updated; quiet; bed was very comfortable too. The staff were nice and helpful although our stay was very short. We had no problems at all.

A nice property a little off the tourist route with good price for a fine room. The free breakfast and WiFi were top notch; so was the free parking. We are here in the off season so got a good price. Walked to a "Jersey-style" Diner and a Denny's right next door.

Reviewed 23 February 2015

The convenience of easy access to Highway 17 & Highway 1 (north & south) is a plus. It is close to downtown and to the Beaches but not in the midst of the congestion. The rooms are comfortable and quiet, and the parking lot is well-lighted but small. If you return late you may have difficulty finding a parking spot.
