I am with a band and we had to find a place to stay in Santa Cruz unexpectedly. Someone recommended Quality Inn! Quiet, friendly, clean. The family that runs the hotel is so nice! It's right off Ocean St, which means it's easy access everywhere, there's a great coffee shop next door and when we tour the west coast next... More

We drove into Santa Cruz at night without a plan of where to stay. We were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and comfort of the room. I have a bad back and most hotel beds don't agree with me, but I slept well all night. It was quiet and comfortable. The wireless internet was faster than most hotels we have... More

Very nice location close to UC Santa Cruz. The customer service was surprisingly greater than other high end hotels. Workers provided good help when needed. Clean modern looking rooms made me felt close at home.

The motel was older, but a maculate ly maintained. Room was a bargain. Neat, clean spacious, and equipped with a refrigerator and microwave. Mr Patel, the owner, was cordial and accommodating. The continental breakfast was a real surprise. My wife and I were impressed with the quality of the food offered. We were able to make fresh, delicious Belgian waffles.... More

Yupen Patel was the amazing person that helped me when I had a family emergency and needed to change my reservation last minute. I would definitely stay here again the hotel was very clean and Yupen and his staff all went above and beyond to make sure we had a pleasant stay. Great location to the Boardwalk as well!!

We rolled into Santa Cruz really late looking for a place for cheap. For the price, the rooms are really nice and much nicer than expected based on the outside exterior. Very clean room and bathroom, wonderful shower, plus a big flat screen tv and microwave and mini fridge. The man at the front desk was exceptionally nice and even... More

We found two spacious rooms in this reasonably priced motel - one for my 94 year old husband and me and the other for our son. The rooms were quiet, clean, comfortable, and very spacious.. The staff is friendly, and an ample breakfast is included. This is our motel when we return to Santa Cruz.

We stayed here for almost a full week and had a wonderful experience. It all starts at the reception with a warm welcome from the manager who has lived in Santa Cruz for many years and knows all the Great local restaurants in town which led to some great eats. He also helped us save money on transportation! The room... More
