We had a great experience staying one night at the Mission Inn in Santa Cruz. It is located at the "west end" of town which is out of the central Santa Cruz noise and congestion. It was quiet and near the West End shops, restaurants and wineries and west cliff beaches. We definitely will stay here again as we visit... More

Not much to say, it's barley 7 am and we had to flee the room - poor 4 year old and 2 year old crying because there is BED BUGS crawling all over us! Luckily there is a wonderful laundromat that is down the street! My husband must have nearly 100 bites.

We stayed here for a family event happening nearby. The location is great and the room was clean and comfortable. The real "special" factor though is the friendlliness of the employees... Ernest, the fellow who checked us in and out gets a real shout out....a wealth of knowledge about places to eat nearby. As he seems to be a "foodie",... More

Our room was clean and well taken care of while we were there. Restaurants and other stores are close by and easy to walk to. Breakfast served inside and on patio on weekends. We even got them to open a little early as we had a large group eager to start the day early. The steam train, beach, pier, boardwalk... More

The room was clean and spacious, even large by most standards. All the basics were there, including WiFi that was fairly speedy. The bathroom was more than adequate. Nothing about the room is "wow" but it was just fine - no complaints. The exterior of the property was nice, with attractive landscaping. Parking was a little tight but I was... More

Mike at the front desk is terrific. The location is good and the rooms adequate and comfortable. Breakfast was nice, served inside and outside. We had a problem with the room heater and Mike took care of things immediately...thank you! We will be back.

I WANT to give this place a 5, but I can't. The place is really cute but not the prettiest to look at. Upon coming to our room, we realized the bed (we requested a queen) was smaller than what we expected. The room itself is big with a flat screen TV, a fridge, microwave, and a really nice bathroom...

My wife and I stayed one night (Sep 7) on our way back to Los Angeles. It is some distance from the Santa Cruz Wharf and Boardwalk and we would not recommend walking it from the hotel unless you are an avid walker and extremely fit. Luckily we opted to drive and park for free albeit quite some distance from... More

We chose this hotel away from the main beach area for our last night before flying home, because of the very variable reviews of the hotels near the beach and the consistently good reviews for the Mission Inn. And they were right. Reception was friendly, efficient, and helpful, and provided us extra towels for the beach. The room was spacious... More

The person who checked us in was very friendly, efficient, helpful and funny. We spend one night here on our way to San Francisco. It was our 25th anniversary, and they unexpectedly gave us a lovely mason jar vase with freshly cut flowers. This was a wonderful surprise and very thoughtful! The person at the front desk (forgot her name)... More
