Literally just arrived home from our two day stay in Santa Cruz. We were in town for a band competition. We generally do not stay at Best Westerns but this was an amazing hotel in that it was centrally located, super clean, very friendly and helpful staff in the hospitality arena, did I say super clean. The morning breakfast was... More

We stayed here for my birthday weekend. Blake, at the reservation counter couldn't have been nicer. Thr room was very nice and the bed softness was perfect! We didn't eat breakfast there though because we wanted to explore the Capitola area for breakfast. We will definately stay here again.

Hotel is conveniently situated. Nice big clean bedrooms but the breakfast area and selection a bit of a let-down and can quickly get over crowded. Good service. Parking can be difficult during weekends if one arrives late.

Everything about this hotel was done right...from the extremely courteous front desk staff to the smiles from the hospitality staff as you're passing them in the hallways...rooms very clean and super comfortable beds...easy "free" internet. The 5 day stay was at the top of hotel stays for me. Thanks!

This Best Western was very nice. Fresh cookies everyday. Large rooms with private sitting area, small fridge and microwave. Full breakfast including waffle maker... Close to the beach, close to Capitola village and Santa Cruz. Friendly staff and clean rooms.

If you want a convenient place to stay, close freeway, close shopping, close eating, close beach....this is your place. We have stayed here on our anniversary for the last two years. Helpful staff. Clean rooms. Decent breakfast. Right price.

Bring a noise machine because walls are very thin. One night it was music playing until 3am the next night it was a baby crying on and off all night. Rooms were not that clean and staff was not well groomed.

Clean room, grounds and common areas. Convenient location, booking, and check-in/out. Courteous staff. We will stay again for sure!! About a mile to village and beach. We walked and drove. Free parking and breakfast are a nice added bonus.

We stayed one night at this property and would highly recommend it. We had 3 adults in our party which included our adult son. It was a 2-room suite with 3 queen-size beds, two full baths plus extra sinks in each room. Each room had its own flat-screen TVs and heating/AC. The wifi was very good and easy to log... More
