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

The facilities were managed in a very friendly and helpful manner. Brought us a table lamp at our request. Managed our possible second day stay without a hassle. Oh,... More

My husband and I wanted a comfortable place to call home for a week in Santa Cruz. Quality Inn was more reasonably priced than most other hotels and turned out to be a great option. The management was courteous and helpful. The rooms had been recently remodeled, and ours was very clean. We had a refrigerator and coffee maker, which... More

We stayed in this hotel the first night of a 5 day trip down Highway 1. The hotel was quiet, clean, and the host was friendly and helpful. The breakfast room was clean and there were a variety of choices. It was a short drive down to the wharf for dinner and easy access to the highway. We would stay... More

I just stayed 2 nights and we are very happy with everything, from the friendliness of the staff to the clean and comfort of the room, nothing to regret. Room has plenty of space. Next time in Santa Cruz area I will be there.

Reservations and check-in were quite smooth. We asked for a quiet room and received one. However, the room smelled strongly of chemicals. I am a chemist so I know the smells. It was so strong that we could not stay in the room. We asked for another room and got one but not the same type as we booked. We... More
