Very pleasantly surprised with our stay here. Good location and easy to find. Upon arrival for check in, we greeted by friendly and informative staff. They had great rates. Our room was very spacious and clean. Only needed the room for one night but will definitely return when I come back to santa cruz. Really enjoyed our stay

This hotel is great. Wonderful staff, quiet rooms, central location. It's remarkably quiet considering how close to everything it is. The rooms are clean and very nice ... service is wonderful and friendly... will stay here again next time I'm in Santa Cruz !!! -Daniel B.

We were there in the off season and decided just to go for a good deal. We stayed here for 1/2 the price of renting a cottage, and less than any other ChoiceHotel chain. They are completely renovating all the rooms and it should be great in a couple months. It was mostly just us and the construction crews staying... More

Very friendly, helpful staff. Newly remodeled with fresh new "everything". Convenient location. I will stay again on a future visit. (Why does Trip Advisor require 200 character?. That is just plain silly. Here are the additional REQUIRED characters!)

After some time looking for a hotel in Santa Cruz (I was amazed about the prices at the time), I could find this one. As soon as I got to the room I got astonished about how comfortable and clean was the room. They had just remodeled the rooms. The front desk attendant was great. He provided us all the... More

There are a whole row of hotel/motels on this strip. This one had a nice sized room with two queen beds that were comfy. The location a couple of blocks from the Boardwalk was nice if it was open. We ended up going downtown for dinner, but needed to drive, lots of bridges and weird street directions and construction to... More

We found this hotel as a last minute booking. It was a holiday weekend and everything was being booked at a really high rate. This was a truly awesome find. The young man (Piyush) that checked us in on the first night was so helpful and really treated us well. His uncle runs the hotel and does a great job... More

Front desk was super friendly. Rate was decent. Away from highway for good sleeping. Rooms were old but had been recently remodeled. Flat screen TV was brand new. Located away from Santa Cruz pier. Rate was as low and lower than some of the other hotels in Santa Cruz. Santa Cruz is a neat city.

The manager/owner was very helpful and friendly. Rooms and general property are being updated to upgrade the rooms and make the complex more attractive. The king bed was very comfortable and overall this was excellent value. Though on a main drag the rooms are set back well enough to make for a very quiet sleep.

The Quality Inn was comfortable and accommodating. Remodeled rooms are spacious and have the necessary amenities. Good location and price - was surprised to find a hotel for this price at at the last minute - would stay here again.
