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.

I'm glad that you found great value at our property -- I personally think that our property offers the best deal in Santa Cruz for what you get (but I may be biased)! It sounds like our amenities worked well for you, as did our close by diners. Thanks for sharing, and we hope to see you again the next...

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.

Thanks for taking the time to review our property!

We stayed 2 nights and it was a nice hotel. The free hot breakfast was awesome because they had a variety of different breakfast items to choose from. Parking stalls were extremely small but then again there is never any parking in Santa Cruz haha. The room was spacious and clean. We liked that they had a fridge, microwave and...

As far as Hampton Inns go, this building is a little bit dated but the rooms look like they have been recently updated. However it seems that a number of the rooms either were previously smoking rooms or some guests still smoke in them. My initial room (218) smelled overpoweringly like cigarettes and pot smoke, with an attempt to cover...

I'm sorry that you experienced issues with housekeeping during your recent stay with us. While we do not offer any smoking rooms (in fact, we have been a non-smoking hotel for over a decade) it is most likely that your room's previous occupant had smoked inside. I am sorry to hear that the cleaning efforts that we utilized were insufficient...
