Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz is funky town that is home to the University of Santa Cruz, California. It is well know for its liberal leanings, alternative community lifestyles, and is home to lots of counter-cultures and sub-cultures. Unfortunately, Jackie decided to have one of her very infrequent colds and we did not get to share several couples-massages which had …

Yerba Buena Gardens

The old street car brought us here and we checked out the gardens: around them large sky scrapers: ultra-modern and also the old St. Patrick’s church, the interesting looking Jewish museum and then in the park: some great fountains: especially the Martin Luther king Jr memorial waterfalls: impressive from the front, when you walk up on its side, ...

... celebrating Halloween in true be-costumed style.

Hard though it was to leave the city, the promise of seeing/staying with family nearby spurred me on. Riding out through Golden Gate park led once more to the ocean and a short two day ride to Santa Cruz where Claud and I will be taking a much anticipated break for a few days and enjoying the mountain air before tackling some of the biggest, most challenging climbs of the trip.

After bringing Chraley to the kennel, we drove quite a distance to get to Monterey. We are staying here for about 2 weeks in our family cottage in Cannery Row and visiting local historic museums and parks. I feel as if I can't relate or feel at home In cannery Row anymore. Before we go to leave I will kiss my hometown goodbye and all it's ...

... water was nicer, its disgusting, a dark green with brown foam!! People actually swim in it!! Lots of people.. we did one ride above the people on the skyride.. we watched all the people cueing for rides,eating and generally being noisey! Then I decided I had enough of this so needed to find a bar. We found one right by the beach and a great jazz band playing.. fantastic way to spend the evening. It was also really entertaining as we had the homeless group trying to dance ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hampton Inn Santa Cruz

    Comfy Place to Stay

    from

    Clean comfortable room. The rooms are very sound proof, nice and quiet even off the the lobby as our room was. The pool is small but adequate. Breakfast had a good variety, nice and clean area to dine. I would use this hotel again.

    Clean, good service

    from

    We chose the Hampton Inn for the value of high-speed internet and complimentary breakfast. Both were great - we had a a solid ethernet connection, and the morning meals offered variety and plenty of food. I also appreciated the all-day access to coffee and tea.

    Great place, but overpriced for our stay

    from

    Just got back from a one-night getaway. Lobby, hallways, and our room were all nice and clean. We got downstairs for breakfast about 9:15am (breakfast is served from 6am-10am) and waited about 20 minutes for them to bring more "hot food," which was only microwaved sausage patties and egg patties and then they only brought FIVE of each. I think there were more people than that waiting for food. I don't know... I guess I was a little disappointed because I was expecting real sausages and scrambled eggs... Otherwise, they had a good selection of breakfast foods and drinks. Other hotel plus-es are the free hi-speed internet, coffee served all day, free local calls, and really great staff! Very pleasant, patient and helpful with my questions. We paid about $150 for the room and that was midweek, but also last minute so... go figure. I think something around $100 would've more appropriate for this place. Oh, and we had to park on the street (but it was nearby). Noise wasn't really a problem at night, we had a room looking onto the street/freeway. Overall, I would highly recommend this place, but not for how much we paid. And btw, this hotel is literally right on the corner (right side) as soon as you exit the freeway (17-S), don't miss it!

    A very decent stay but a little pricey

    from

    We just got back from a weekend stay at this hotel and it was, overall, a pretty good experience. The hotel is conveniently located off Highway 17 which made it easy to find but far enough from the highway that traffic noise wasn't a problem. The lobby, hallways, and room were tidy and clean and the complimentary breakfast was pretty extensive...various fruits, eggs, canadian bacon, biscuits, oatmeal, cereal, juice, coffee and there was almost always a staff person around to restock food items that were running low. The front desk clerk was very helpful in pointing out where we needed to go (Roaring Camps Railroad) and also made recommendations for lunch/dinner spots. The only two drawbacks were the pool, which was clean but VERY small-you really can't swim in it, just wade around, and the price of the hotel room which was $189.00/night plus a $12/night "convenience fee". I don't mind paying that much for a room in a nicer hotel, but for a hotel of this caliber I felt like we overpaid a bit; I would have thought $120-$140 to be more appropriate.

    Good value, nice stay

    from

    Stayed here one night in mid-July. My son and I were doing the college tours of California. Very happy with the one-night stay; front desk person was friendly and helpful; room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Location is very close to UC Santa Cruz, which made the tour easy to get to. I recommend this hotel. Our reason for staying there was different from a vacation stay, but it really fulfilled our needs.

    Great for your dollar

    from

    My family of four stayed here after spending a day at the boardwalk. The hotel desk person was great. He was very personable and recommended a great place to eat. Hindquarters in Santa Cruz. The breakfast was great - hot. My only complaint is there was not enough parking, we had to park on the street. Other than that, it was great. We would stay here again!

    A Nice Place

    from

    We had a nice suite and the place seems quite new and is being upgraded again. The staff was very nice and helpful. The only draw back is that the side of the hotel we stayed in faces busy freeway entry/exit so it got too noisy at times. On the other hand, it is a very convenient location with a 24-hour Denny's next door (great when traveling with kids). We would go back again.

    Will be back

    from

    This hotel is very nice, the staff is super friendly. Whis hotel is right off the freeway so very easy to find. The rooms are very clean. The only thing is the walls must be thin because you can hear everyone that is in the hall. When we were there, there was a basketball tournament so alot of kids running around. You could hear everything, but if it wasnt for them being there and being loud I am sure it would have been fine. I definetly recomend this Hotel and I will be staying there again.

    Super convenient!

    from

    Went to Santa Cruz for a wedding. Hotel was super clean, friendly, and in a location that easy to get on/off the highway. Even has an Ihop next door that you can walk to. Highly recommended.

    Brand new, but a bit pricey

    from

    We stayed here in August 03 and had a great stay. The hotel is brand new and an all non-smoking facility. The rooms are on the small side when they have two double beds but still comfortable and very clean.
