3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I looked this place up online and picked it mostly because of the really good rate and the fact that it had a four star rating on Tripadvisor but it's quite misleading . I was not terribly disappointed since the room was spacious and clean and quiet. However, it is located too far away from the beach and the location... More

The travel department of the medical staffing company I contract to gives me a choice of hotels in Santa Cruz. The higher the price of the hotel reduces my pay according to the cost, within a minimum standard suitable to house traveling doctors. Quality Inn has the best bang for the buck. Large comfortable rooms, courteous staff and clean linens.... More

Room was clean and spacious but it's about a mile and half walk through streets filled with tweakers on bikes. Pool is TINY and half the size it appears in the pictures. I am aware that rooms here are pricey in summer so this was a decent value. Good, free breakfast. Next time I will stay closer to the boardwalk... More

Based on a Trip Advisor review, my wife and I decided to book into the Quality Inn for a four day Santa Cruz get away. The nightly rate, central location and TA reviews made this an easy choice. Our room was large and clean. Although it was somewhat dated the room was comfortable and met our needs. One note of... More

The owners of this Quality Inn made my stay and the stay of the group of high school seniors that were in Santa Cruz with me very good. The accommodations are basic but they're clean, affordable, quiet and excellent for the price.

Mr. Patel was very accommodating and kind. The staff was up beat and friendly. Our room was a very generous size and I was so impressed with how clean and well taken care of it was. The breakfast area in the lobby was kept clean and tidy while patrons were coming and going, something that has been lacking in other... More

Last min trip this weekend with no place to stay. Tried to book room on line with no luck. I walked into hotel and was greeted by Mr. Patel who had a room available and he matched the online price. Room was very clean and the décor was not outdated like other the hotels in the area. The breakfast included... More
