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

We spent 4 nights at The Mission Inn. We found the rates to be more than reasonable. The room was clean and very spacious. The staff was VERY friendly during our stay and also when we made our phone reservations! The location was on a busy street but the hotel was quiet. They offered a nice breakfast...served in two locations.... More

Nothing really special about this hotel. A reasonable price with reasonable amenities and location. It did get a little loud at night as a wedding was staying there, but ultimately, it got the job done.

We stayed here one night with friends while doing some wine tasting in the Santa Cruz area. The check-in was convenient and the person behind the desk friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and roomy while the beds were comfortable. The hotel is dated and somewhat older but that is somewhat what you get in downtown areas that are... More

I had the chance to spend two nights in this hotel. The rooms were spacious and clean. Even though it was located on a main street it was very quiet. There is a Safeways and plenty of places for dinner or shopping within walking distance. I had very friendly staff and there was lots of free parking. They offer free... More
