We had spent 3 weeks traveling in the north west of the US and this was our last stay before returning home. It was the most expensive hotel by far and we thought it was going to be something special. We were very wrong. It was very ordinary. It was clean and tidy and ordinary. The only black mark was...

My whole stay the wifi never worked and there was mildew in the bathroom and hair in the tub; cleanliness was terrible. The front desk supervisor Antonia was extremely rude and was not willing to give me the same rate they gave me on my second room of $59.00 by mistake of their front desk agent at night for mine...

Seacliff Inn is our hotel of choice when visiting the Santa Cruz area. The landscaping and view is beautiful and the koi pond is gorgeous. We love to spend our meals eating or just relaxing having drinks at the koi pond. The food was delicious, the staff friendly and professional. Love, love, love this place!

We stayed here for our daughter's wedding held about 10 minutes away at the Seascape Resort. The rooms are about half the price of those at the resort and we booked a block of rooms here to offer a less expensive option for family and friends. The staff was very welcoming and helpful and met our expections with the exception... More

The hotel is nicely located near Seacliff State beach. In fact, it's close enough to make the short walk to it. My room was clean and the hotel is well kept. Free breakfast is served from I think 6:30 am to 9:30am and consist of scrambled eggs, potatoes, sausage, waffles and french toast. Something about their scrambled eggs were delicious!... More

We had some personal business to tend to in Aptos that was not relaxing. Coming from So. Cal. and the heat the ocean fog turned to a pleasant temperature of sunshine, was what I was reminded of my youth. An Aaaah moment. Arriving at the hotel one is greeted with fauna and floral from the first step. The staff cares... More

This hotel is a gem concidering the price we paid ($160) per night. Free hot breakfast, jacuzzi, salt water pool and great location. Only 2-3 minutes away from Capitola by car. Plenty of parking and very quiet. Highly recommended for families and couples.

This Best Western is tucked away, but close to everything. The grounds are beautiful, the breakfast it delicious and the rooms are updated. You can get to Capitola, Santa Cruz or Brighton Beach in minutes. The grounds have a great bar with live entertainment on weekends.

All rooms are overpriced in Santa Cruz so considering it wasn't too bad. The only Con: The hotel is older and the rooms were just ok. Definitely could... More
