I can't recommend this hotel because my daughter's ipod touch was stolen from our room. Our room was not cleaned while we were gone and the floor was very dirty. We complained to the manager about the theft, and they said they would review security tapes to see if anyone entered our room. They called back and said they would... More

Dear Jeff Q: We would like to sincerely apologize for the unfortunate experience that happened during your stay. I diligently reviewed the security footage, but was unable to find anything. All of my staff members were made aware of your situation and I had personally checked with you each morning during your 3-night stay to see if your iPod Touch... More

Very nice rooms that were clean and tastefully decorated. The people at the desk were very friendly and my children loved the spa. My only complaint was the spa had alot of sand in it. But we had a great stay and I would definitely recommend this place to anyone .

We stayed there on the spur of the moment. We needed a place close to our son's house and we did a survey of properties at Beach and Soquel streets. This motel had a AAA sign in front so we drove in, checked out a room and booked here. The hotel has two buildings, one of which is directly across... More

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
