We stayed in the annex for a week while visiting our son and his wife. Our room was immaculate, quite spacious, and included a microwave and refrigerator. The people on the front desk were very friendly and helpful. It was also very nice to have laminate flooring when traveling with our dog. Although she is very well-behaved, we always worry... More

Location to Court house was great. Limited breakfast, but was nice not to have to find a place to eat, wait to order before day started. Overall location to restaurants was great, good Thai, Indian buffet, and chinese food all within walking distance. Jacuzzi was a plus, good place to unwind. Front desk was always very accommodating for dates we... More

I've been happy with this hotel and have stayed here three times when picking up my son from UC Santa Cruz. The rooms are spacious and updated. As a female traveling alone I felt safe parking at night and going in and out of my room. I have stayed in both the hotel office side and the pool side. The... More

We drove to Santa Cruz for a 3 day stay initially, but the folks at the Continental Inn were so warm and welcoming until it was easy to extend our stay an additional two days. Based upon the price for 6 days and 5 nights, I don't think you can beat it. The rooms are spacious and complete with more... More

My daughter and I took a 21-day trip to tour the West and stayed at all kinds of places. The Continental Inn stands out as one of our favorites. It was very clean, nicely decorated, offered a nice breakfast selection, and had a friendly staff. The real plus was that there was no nasty carpeting! The hardwood floors were a... More

We reserved a room thinking e would have a room with two queen sized beds for the four of us. 2 adults and two children. We found that we had our room in the annex which is right across the street from the main hotel. They had on-site parking which was quite nice and an elevator to take us to... More

At first I was hesitant to book this hotel since all the others were in the 200 dollar range. I thought its not going to be that nice. I was glad I was wrong. Great service from Tony and Elijah at the front desk. The room was extremely clean and had some features such as 2 sinks, microwave, fridge, keurig... More

If you visit the nice and happy town of Santa Cruz this is a reasonable inn where to stay. Clean, good service managed by young smart people. Good breakfast and nice location close to downtown. The value for price is good.
