Friendly staff, very clean and comfortable room, nice hot tub. The bed was comfortable and everything looked very clean, including the carpet. The continental breakfast, which was included with the room price, was also pretty good and included hard boiled eggs, several varieties of cold cereal, instant oatmeal, several kinds of breads, waffles, coffee, tea, milk, two kinds of juice...

Good location on California Route 1 in Santa Cruz, and good value for money. Close to shopping and bars, and short drive to the seafront. Staff are very friendly and courteous, Rooms are surprisingly quiet considering the proximity to the highway and provide plenty of space. The main downside of this hotel is the poor quality of the breakfast which... More

Stayed here in last couple of days and although the room was clean and had basic requirements it was very disappointing and was nothing like the photograghs shown on line. It was so dark and gloomy that we needed the lights on all the time, even this didn't help much as they seemed dim. There was no safe in the... More

We stayed at the the Mission Inn several years ago while visiting Santa Cruz and returned again over Christmas. It's close to West end restaurants, UCSC, and easy access to Hwy 1 North. Rooms spacious, clean, beds comfortable and the staff is attentive and helpful when you need them. Breakfast is included and provided the usual stuff and the coffee... More

Eight years ago had visitors stay there with no complaints. Was in Santa Cruz this January for a family event and decided to stay here. Ernest, night clerk, checked us in and even carried our luggage to the upstairs rooms--very gracious man. Hotel has a rustic feel with lots of wood and surrounded by trees. Mission St is also CA...

This by far the hotel with the best customer service, Nice and friendly crew. Great value for a great jacuzzi room! A plus is that there's a shopping center at the corner. I want to thank the crew members who helped my wife and myslef with our dead battery car, our car first died out on us when we got... More

Great stay for New Years in Santa Cruz! Not on the beach but great amenities for the value, also conveniently located across from a Safeway and next door to the voted best Schezwan Chinese food in that county!

I stay here when ever I'm in Santa Cruz. I have stayed in several places in Santa Cruz, but the Mission Inn is by far the best quality with great rates. There staff is very friendly and willing to accommodate. It's located near the beach with plenty great places to eat, drink, and try wine tasting.

Very friendly front desk service, good location in Santa Cruz, and good value for money. Close to shopping and bars, and short drive to the water. Right on main highway coming down the Pacific coast, first traffic light entering town of Santa Cruz.

Mission Inn deserves a clear, positive review. So here it is: If you want a good, reliable place to stay in Santa Cruz that’s quite reasonably priced, Mission Inn would be perfect. We were visiting family in the area Thanksgiving and didn’t want to drive home to Alameda that same night. But searching through all the listings was hopeless. We... More
