Hotel is being remodeled....first room we were given, so bad we didn't even set our bags down. The carpet was ripped up from the front door, and the rest was so badly stained that you'd have thought it was some kind of dog run. The desk clerk, changed us to a different room, which was about 2/3 finished being updated.... More

The Santa Cruz Days Inn is a moderately priced with the amenities of far more expensive hotel. The rooms are spacious, clean, and solidly built to keep out any extraneous noise. The walk to the beach is probably less than a mile, possibly distressful to some tourists; however, that extra exercise is a huge savings. The breakfast isn't fancy, yet... More

We have stayed at this hotel 4 or 5 times, and every one of the stays has been great. The staff is excellent, the rooms have been great, even the breakfast is enjoyable!!! The hotel is located between the Boardwalk (daytime activity), and downtown (evening activity and dinner), with about a 7 minute walk in either direction. We have never... More

I had a snafu with a nearby hotel I had booked and payed for two months in adavance but could not accomodate us. By the time we got to Days Inn, it was late, we'd been travelling, and things had been going wrong. Days Inn was not only able to accomodate me, but they did it fast, easy, and cheaper... More

I had my mom, daughter and 2 year old grandson with me on a family trip to Sacramento and then on to Santa Cruz. Our hotel in Sac was way too small and I had to share a bed with my mom, so I got no sleep for 2 days. I was praying our room in Santa Cruz would be... More

Hotel is nice looking on the outside, rooms aren't as nice on the inside. Nice swimming pool, two nice spa's. Short walking distance from Boardwalk and restaurants. First room smelt like cat urine, they moved us to a better fresher smelling room, but one of the beds was broken down and uncomfortable and air-conditioner didn't seem to cool the room... More
