The only good thing about Days Inn & Suites Santa Cruz is their location. Close to the Boardwalk & downtown area. But the place really needs an update or at least repair. Our door was missing the security latch which seems like an easy fix. The shower head, hair dryer holder, sliding door, patio chairs need to be replaced. Our... More

Due to unfortunate circumstances, we stayed at the Days Inn and Suites in Santa Cruz for a total of about 4 months. We could have gone to different hotels, but there were many reasons why we stayed here. First being the staff. The staff here is so amazingly personable. The staff, now our good friends, are absolutely great at their... More

My daughters and I enjoyed our stay. On Sunday morning we came down about 9:50a for breakfast. We had to wait while other guests made their waffles before making ours. The attendant stated cleaning up and putting stuff away like cups, napkins, the butter, bread for toast. I had to asked her for things. She even took the garbage out... More

The room above me partied all night long. I called the front desk 3 times at night and once in the morning. I called to speak to the manager twice and she has not returned my calls. Will NOT stay at the Days Inn or any Days Inn again. Ever.

This was a 'stop gap' hotel in a string of hotel visits on a 17 day California Road Trip! It was obvious that updating/renovations were taking place by the workmen on the premises. The common areas were well worn in most areas but the reception area and the room itself were updated, clean and comfortable. It worked for us!
