Stayed one night - family of four. The room was roomy and they put us in the area above the parking lot (no one above or below us) . . . perfect for teenage boys who tend not to be light on their feet! The hotel was close enough to the beach and boardwalk that they were easy to find... More

Here for ucsc visit. The room prices in sc during the summer are quite a bit higher then spring time. Mission inn was one of the better priced options. We were not disappointed. The room was clean and spacious. The breakfast was basic but did the trick. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Would return here.

I had an excellent experience at this hotel. Very clean, friendly and super helpful staff, specially Naomi (front desk). Great location near restaurants, grocery store and pharmacy. Near pretty much everything. Safe area too. Street noise was less than expected.

Room was clean, and plenty large enough for Myself, and my two children. Shower is always important to me, when traveling, and was pleasantly surprised. Stream was strong, and took only seconds to get warm. Bar of soap, was a real bar of soap, not a 2 inch, tiny thing most hotels pass off. Plenty of towels, for the three... More

Had one of the handicapped room, the beds where comfy, quiet, clean and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The location is great. No complaints. No swimming pool, but there is a hot tub and sauna room. Did not use, but friends did. Would stay there again.

We spent one night at this hotel and it was exactly what we expected: nothing fancy but appropriate for what you pay. Staff at the front desk was very nice and let us see the bedroom before we checked-in. Beds and carpets have been recently renovated, which was nice. Parking is very convenient and allows you to leave your car... More

This place gave us an expected stay; clean, friendly receptionists, right on the Cabrillo highway. We got an upgrade (thanks again!) so we had a kingsize bed, which felt a little worn. There was quite some noise from the road during the night but the complex itself is clean and quiet. Breakfast was somewhat meagre.

My sister and I got in pretty late after a 16 hour drive and were looking hard for a place to stay. Our budget wasn't huge, and we were worried at the prices of some of the other hotels. Mission Inn gave us a great room at a very solid price. The pretty red-headed lady at the front desk was... More
