After a traumatizing experience in SF ( a man was killed outside out room while resisting arrest, and we spent a good part of the day at the police dept) we decided to leave a day early. We ended up in santa cruz about 7:30 that night and checked into the best western. Tyler was there to greet us warmly... More

We stayed at the Best Western for two nights and it's okay. We had not such a good experience with the manager because there was a problem with our booking. Instead of giving us a bit of attention she called with the booking agency on the speaker saying that the credit card payment was not accepted. Not a customer friendly... More

Perfect little place! Felt just like a hotel! Really clean, comfortable and secure! We were on the top floor, and getting suitcases to the room was a doddle. The hotel also has free wifi which Is a bonus, and had no trouble parking what so ever. The western also provides an excellent breakfast with lots of choice, hot and cold!... More

Stayed here a night last week on our way to San Francisco. The location was convenient to the freeway and their staff was friendly. The rooms had all the basics including fast free wi-fi. The free breakfast in the morning was generous. Only knock would be the thin walls and it's a bit far from the beach. Good spot for... More

It was more of a motel style but the room was very modern and clean. I liked the ease of find the place right off the 1 and how quick of a drive it was to the ocean from it. The breakfast was standard and there was a jacuzzi which seemed like an after thought. But I was overall very... More

This motel is very nicely appointed, friendly, helpful staff. It's a little difficult to get into and out of and a little off the beaten path. However, it is a nice place to stay, especially for business.

Easy on/off access to Hwy 1 and Hwy 17. Clean, quiet room, reasonable breakfast, polite staff. Not more than 10 minutes from the Boardwalk and don't have to deal with the crowds. Would stay there again.

The hotel is ok. Rooms are ok and clean (small though), customer service is ok too. The only outstanding thing about this hotel is complementary breakfast, which is delicious and well assorted. This was my first time in Santa Cruz. I didn't know which part of the city was best for us to stay, so I decided to go with... More
