We saved so much on gas because this location is walking distance from great food, grocery stores and the boardwalk. Our room was clean, had a medium sized fridge, flat screen T.V., wide shower/tub, good closet. Never felt disturbed by traffic noise. My only problem was the window didn't have an inner corner for light access. Curtains had to be... More

My wife and I stayed at the Quality Inn Santa Cruz and were well taken care of. Upen Patel, Manager was a gracious host and made sure we went without nothing! A class act for sure! I would recommend staying here. You'll be pleased of it, I'm sure.

I am writing this review because I had such a pleasant and peaceful stay at Quality Inn, Santa Cruz. As I am not easy to please and always want great value for my money , I have found that it is not always easy to find in my California travels. When I checked in at the Inn in Santa Cruz... More

On recommendation of a friend who lives in Santa Cruz, we made reservations for one night at the Quality Inn. Great recommendation! The King size room was huge and the bed was comfortable, The continental breakfast with eggs, sausage, waffles, etc was very nice. If you want a quiet room, ask for the 3rd floor in the back, but we... More

We had a good and comfortable stay. The front desk staff was also very helpful and accomodating. We asked for a quiet room and got it on the 3rd floor. It's a huge property and the rooms are actually away from the street. Breakfast was great --with egg whites and sausages, and a wide variety of offerings!

Very nice, large room at the back, upstairs. Quiet, convenient, and reasonable, compared to 40 minutes away in San Jose, where every room was over $150 that week. The check-in was quick, easy, and the room was more than I expected. The location is on the main drag, and from the outside, looks like any general motel, but inside, it... More

Nice Clean Hotel and Quiet ☺ Will stay again definitely. Hotel Clerk Very helpful. He recommended dinner and HQ restaurant and it was great food and within walking distance. Hotel was close to Beach Boardwalk and Beach. Beds are comfortable and room not all cramped. Will return soon

A bit dated, but clean and well run. My room had a comfortable bed and good linens. Staff was friendly. There was not a handicap room available, so my son was given a downstairs room that that worked. It was roomy enough for his wheelchair to get around in. Disappointment that the pool wasn't open for the "season", yet even... More

If you coming to Santa Cruz to play or for business, you want to sleep well if you like me. This place sits off the street away from noisy activities and the sound of cars. I just loved it for two weeks in a row! You can have some good morning eats in lobby or walk close by to Santa... More
