Nice good size room, pool view was so nice and relaxing. Beautiful grounds. Actual drawers in the room, not a cubby hole for clothes. Clean room, clean bathroom. I could smell bleach which is a good sign, bathroom nice and clean and ready for guests.

Could have stayed here our entire Aptos 2-day getaway, but Seacliff Beach was only 3/4 miles west, We did stay for dinner at the hotel restaurant Severino's--excellent food and service, delightful. We enjoyed the two free drinks provided by the hotel, which we had not expected. The extensive grounds, pool area and spectacular entrance to the restaurant over a wooden... More

I stayed here for 2 days on a business trip end of August. This Best Western is really clean, organized, and is actually really quaint and picturesque.

Nice, clean rooms. Lovely courtyard and pool area. Severino's is GREAT - for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Close to Seacliff Beach. A good place to stay in between Santa Cruz and Monterey if you want to be somewhere a little more secluded. Aptos is a quaint village - visit the Aptos Museum right across the street from the hotel.

This Best Western is close to one of our favorite beach walks at the State beach near the cement boat. Whenever we come to the beach area we try to stay there. The rooms are nice and the breakfast is excellent.

First, the room and service were fine, with the only problem being thin walls (could hear neighbors). Otherwise, the mattress quality was very good and we had no trouble sleeping.The pool and hot tub were excellent and we enjoyed these amenities.

Now, don't get me wrong. But the guy who said this is "by far one of the nicest and well kept hotels" is blind. The location is "nice" as one commentator added, and "decent but pricey" is more akin to reality. It isn't close to a 'real' Starbucks, just a Safeway one. At $220 a night, we should've gone to...

This is the second time we have stayed here. It's in a nice location, with several eateries nearby. Most close at 9:00 PM as we learned the hard way. Continental breakfast is really good as well. Safeway is directly across the street with a gas station and Starbucks.
