This hotel is a basic 2 star and in need of repainting outside and modernising but is clean and tidy and the staff were friendly and helpful.The room I stayed in had a modern TV while the shower although old worked well. The hotel offers a free continental breakfast including toast, cereals, pastries, coffee etc. Good value for a short... More

If you don't have a pet, you might want to consider a different property. It's shabby, unattractive, and grungy, but it's located in a decent area, though not near the ocean. In terms of the pets, there is a $20per pet fee which gives you nothing but the privilege of having your dog with you. Many pet friendly motels provide... More

Noisy, bad neighborhood, smelly & sticky. The pictures lie! I am not all that familiar with the Santa Cruz area, but there has to be a better option. Pool and hot tub are a nice touch and there is a washer / drier. Take a pass on this hotel.

Surprised by appearance, in front got no appeal, but when you to back it gives different vibe, pleasant to the eye id say. Jacuzzi in bath was coo along with room for the price, cant go wrong. Not quite the breakfast offered at best Western on Plymouth but more than makes up with the value for same amenities

I wouldn't recommend this hotel the pictures sure make it look very nice but its an old hotel in an ugly location. Its close even walking distance to Beach board walk but I'd rather pay the extra and stay closer.

I stayed for two nights in the Pacific Inn in Santa Cruz recently while visited my daughter who lives there. In my internet research, it appeared to be the best value for money. And indeed it was. My room was very comfortable - king bed, table and chair to work, good tv, nice bathroom. Breakfast was available, and a swimming... More

I nearly drove past this place when we arrived as I was looking for the beautiful hotel displayed in the photos. When I booked, I thought this was a mid-level hotel, but I was clearly wrong. We arrived just before check-in and dropped our stuff in the room, but didn't have towels. I also had to close the open windows... More
