Have stayed at other hotels in this area in the past before Hampton Inn was built and Hampton Inn is by and far a much better place to stay for the price, the rooms, the free breakfast, and much more. Great family experience for a place to stay for the family or even one on one.

My best friend and I stayed at the Hampton in SLO. We were there for the Mid-State Fair, seeing Duran Duran. This is my second time first time first time with my husband. The rooms are large and very clean. The beds are amazing. It's close to everything. We'll be back.

The hotel is located 10 minutes from the beach by car. Friendly staff at the reception desk. Free breakfast with good fresh fruit and hot oatmeal. The hotel is next door to Panera Restaurant that serves great salads and delicious desserts. I recommend this hotel for short business trips or a quick weekend getaway.

The hotel is OK, it's clean, the rooms are nice and well equipped and it serves it's purpose however I did not like the breakfast at all.

Friendly staff. Put me and my children in the room she anticipated being the quietest as she awaited the return of many celebratory wedding guests, and we were not disturbed. Free breakfast with good fresh fruit. Would recommend pre-stocking rooms with more than one towel. Bathroom door wouldn't stay open.

Stayed here on a short visit but service was excellent; hotel was spotless. They do not have evening meals on site but Margie's Diner was a short walk and the teenagers could get a quick dinner meal and we never had to - those kids are always hungry!
