Positive Reviews

Good quality accommodation

Despite occasional minor disappointments, previous guests have tended to be complimentary about the standard of the rooms at the Hampton Inn Santa Cruz. The rooms are generally found to offer an acceptable level of cleanliness. Plus, guests appreciate the selection of included amenities, particularly the comfortable beds.

Great breakfast

Guests have more than once described the breakfast served at this hotel as outstanding. The choice of items is said to be good and guests have enjoyed the wide variety of fresh fruit offered on the buffet. The serving/dining area is frequently said to be clean, inviting, and well organised.

Friendly and helpful staff

Bar a handful of exceptions, guests have rated the standard of service here highly. The staff is frequently described as friendly, approachable, and happy to help with any queries. Plus, guests that left items in their rooms often say there were no problems getting these items returned.

Negative Reviews

Guests may find the pool is small

Previous guests often mention that they found the hotel’s pool a little on the small side. As you might imagine, this facility is popular with younger guests. Hence, it can feel quite crowded at times.

Too far from the beach for some

Guests occasionally mention that they would have preferred to stay a little nearer the beach (and other attractions). However, chain hotels closer to the beach are few and far between so you would likely pay a considerably higher price for a beach front property. With transport, the location has suited many past guests.

Parking issues

A number of guests have found the parking lot at this hotel a little tight, especially so for those with larger vehicles. Other guests note that the lot is frequented by homeless people, which has made guests feel a little uneasy.
