The rooms were big, we had a double. Hotel is kind-of-hidden in the woods, but once you drive up and see it, you'll like it more. We only stayed 1 night, but if I go back to Santa Cruz, here is where I would stay again.

Very nice hotel conveniently located close to Big Basin State Park where we were hiking (about a 30 minute drive). Staff was friendly. We were on the 4th floor, with parking right outside. Our room was a king, handicap accessible right next to the pool and fitness center. We were a bit worried at first but the noise was not... More

Great hideaway hotel in the redwoods but close to downtown Santa Cruz. You won't find it driving by but it is worth searching for. We found it on the internet after having a couple of bad experiences in Santa Cruz in the past. We looked for something we could depend on and Hilton usually comes through.

My wife is allergic to down. We asked the front desk to remove the down from our bedroom. We went to dinner and when we returned, I called the front desk to make sure the down pillows were removed. We were told they were removed, however, my wife didn't think so. Upon further review...the pillows were not removed. Fortunately, someone... More

Nice choice for visiting the area. Spacious, comfortable rooms and we were in a very nice quiet area of the building (upper floor in back), except for those that left noisily in the early a.m. The parking lot is right outside the rooms. Also, the continental breakfast was a very good value at around $10 if I remember right. Only... More

Excellent hotel with friendly staff and good food!! Surroundings of the hotel were lovely - pine trees. Outside pool. Restaurant was good as was the bar - Recommended stop close to Santa Cruz. Would make this a base for wider touring if we returned to California.

Would highly recommend this hotel - lovely bar and bar staff in wonderful wooded surroundings. Restaurant food excellent. We stayed here on a 3 week tour of the Californian coast and it was definitely in our top 3 of hotels we stayed in.

I stayed for 4 nights and was very pleased with the choice of hotel. Built on the side of a hill and that makes finding your room a treasure hunt. But once you get in your room it is what you expect from a Hilton, comfortable beds, clean showers and nice size. The happy hour in the lounge is a... More

Spent just an overnight - it was so conveniently right off Highway 17 but back from the highway, so no noise or view of that. Very nice property, very nice reception. Place was hoppin' with wedding reception activity, so, unfortunately could not upgrade to a Jacuzzi suite. Our room was spacious and clean with comfy bed and all the amenities... More

We were very pleased at how clean and comfortable our room was, and how helpful the staff was during checkin. We needed a room before check-in time to get ready for an early wedding, and they did their best to get us in an available room as soon as possible.
