Hotel staff were professional and were happy to give directions to other properties for dinner. Their restaurant was outstanding; a delightful experience, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Truly enjoyed the experience...both the hotel and the adjoining restaurant. We only stayed one night, but could have spent a good many more days with them.

PROS: Nice area and close to Hwy.... Easy access to several food stores, a movie theater and gas stations CONS:You will pay a bit more here and with the right room is worth the higher price. The showers need hand-wands. I was in room 512... ask for that room as it is centrally located

Considering where you are; between Santa Cruz & Monterrey, This place is quite the gem. It has just enough in all the right places to make this a good option for travelers. The food & bar were great, the clam chowder award winning. The best rooms are lower level around the pool where you can sit outside your room among... More

but the rooms are getting tired. They actually updated the vanity countertops a couple of years ago, but a few other things are wearing out. This time our TV kept freezing so we would be in the middle of watching show and have to give up because of that. Front desk sent maintenance right away, who worked on it until... More

Although our room with a King bed in this hotel was not super huge, it was very adequate and nicely remodeled. The room included a comfy chair, two suit case racks instead of the usual one, and a small refrigerator. The rooms are situated in a set of buildings arranged around the swimming pool/ hot tub garden area. Guests can... More

Pros: good location near Sea Cliff beach, restaurants, shopping, and movies. Only 15 min from Santa Cruz. Room service was very fast and the onsite restaurant is reasonable for a decent American meal. Plenty of parking, and the staff was very good. The buffet breakfast is standard for a chain motel. Shower had plenty of hot water. Pretty good TV... More

I'd like to love this place, but I can't. The grounds are beautifully manicured and lush. There's even some topiary. The pool and spa area is clean. The rooms are noisy due to the freeway and lack of insulation, but a pair of earplugs can take care of that. Keep your voice down unless you want everyone to know your... More

Great location, friendly staff, good food, night time entertainment, what more could you ask for while looking for a place to stay when visiting the Santa Cruz/Aptos/Monterey Bay area? First stay, but definitely not the last.

Our house was being painted, so I was going to get a hotel for two nights with my daughter and two grandchildren. My husband thought he would just get it reserved and called Best Western. At first they said they didn't have anything, but then they discovered a suite with a king and a pull out sofa. My 5 year... More
