We have made the Quality Inn our place to stay in Santa Cruz. Our grandsons live here and we visit them often and have used the inn a number of times. The staff is extremely cordial and very accommodating. They make every effort to assist you and create a welcoming atmosphere. The rooms are clean, updated and spacious. Although located... More

Comfy king bed with quality linens typical of embassy suites or Hampton inn. Bathroom ok with great shower. Window in bathroom nice bonus. Bathroom linens ok. It's a beach area and the rooms are clean for the climate. Breakfast rivals that of nicer chain hotels like staybridge suites. Hot eggs, sausage links, waffles, all kinds of breakfast breads, cereal, milk,... More

This place will give you NO problems. It's a little over a mile from the board walk. There are a couple of other places near by to eat and relax. It's close to the freeway. The room, bed, and bathroom are clean. The A/C works and it's not noisy. The area is quite, so you don't have to worry about... More

We came for our 1st visit to Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk on Monday Aug.4th-Tuesday Aug.5th. 2014 We found a great deal on Trip Advisor for the Quality Inn. The front desk Manager Uptan was very polite and welcomed us graciously. Our Rooom 106, was downstairs. Very comfortable and clean. Two queen beds non-smoking. Bathroom was roomy and clean. Good water... More

Took a 2 night 3 day trip to Santa Cruz to take our kids to the beach and boardwalk. Decided to try the Quality Inn. The price was reasonable for Santa Cruz. The staff was very accomodating and friendly. The breakfast area is small but the breakfast was pretty good and had more choices than expected. The room was basic... More

Needed a place to stay in Santa Cruz and my choices were either “dives” or resorts. I booked a room at the Quality Inn based on reviews and crossed my fingers. The hotel is just far enough away from downtown to make weekend traffic manageable, but close enough to still enjoy the atmosphere. The room was spacious and clean. The... More

This hotel is old but has been refurbished. The room was clean and looked like everything had been updated recently. It is right on Ocean Street which is the main drag going to the Boardwalk. We thought we would have a problem with traffic noise so we got a room in the rear. We never heard any traffic at all.... More

This hotel seems costly until one realizes that it is located in Santa Cruz and that we rented during tourist season. Rooms were clean, although corners showed evidence of stain from older coverings, I presume. Breakfast is adequate but not quite as generous as in Quality Inns in less popular destinations. Still one recognizes Comfort Inn amenities. We would stay... More

This place was great! Perfect walking distance to downtown Santa Cruz, perfect staff, they were all so nice! Perfect size, our king size bedroom had a lot of space. Nice little pool to cool off and safe location. A little store across the st for late night munchies and a wonderful ice-cream spot across the st as well. Overall we... More

Every year during the peak summer season, it is hard to find a quiet and clean place to stay at a reasonable rate. The hotel is conveniently located just across the street from Marianne's Ice Cream on Ocean Avenue. The rooms have been remodeled and are larger than most rooms with 2 Queen beds. The breakfast has great variety with... More
