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...

Clean and tidy and a professional staff. Good Breakfast and fantastic location. You want to go to the beach,mountain biking or Santa Cruz this is where you stay. Our kid goes to UCSC and this is where we stay when we visit.

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.

This is, by far, one of the nicest and well kept hotels. The property is well kept. It has a koi pond, walking paths and outside seating. The restaurant has excellent food at very reasonable prices. The free full breakfast was outstanding.

With the deals you can get on hotels these days I wasn't impressed with the over $180/night group rate they offerred the wedding we booked with. While it is nicer than many Best Westerns, it's still older, with dark hallways and little "wow factor" for that price. The bar/restaurant is super convenient and well run with great staff and a...

Hotel was comfortable, grounds were spacious, well landscaped and clean, hotel staff very helpful and courteous, and location was great. We were going to take our kids to Santa Cruz and weren't sure if the distance would be a factor. Definitely was not. In fact, was great as it was just off the freeway, just across from the beach.

My son and I stayed at the Best Western Sea Cliff and had a great time. We enjoyed the pool, the Jacuzzi and especially the Koi pond. We hope to come back and be there in time for feeding time, which I was told was 1:00 p.m.

We love this hotel so close to the beach yet affordable with on-site lounge bar restaurant and swimming pool. The restaurant food is always fresh and cooked properly. The seafood ceviche is a favorite appetizer alongside a dirty martini.
