"Wow" is all we can say after our visit! We initially booked a simple room to add onto a business trip the following day. When we arrived, we were instantly upgraded to a full suite, because of our Hilton Honors Diamond status. The suite was amazing! Huge, immaculate, with living room, big separate dining room with table and 6 chairs,... More

I've stayed at this hotel multiple times since they opened. It is clean, quiet, and in a great location. There is a little wear-and-tear starting to show, but overall it is maintained quite well, as you would expect from a Hilton hotel. Staff are always friendly.

Great location. Very clean. Friendly staff. The hotel is located close to UC Santa Cruz where our children go to college. The Scotts Valley Hilton is really the nicest hotel nearest the univeristy. We prefer to stay here more than any other location in Santa Cruz. The rooms are large and very clean. Nice bar off the lobby, and great... More

This Hilton is quite a find. It has a beautiful and quiet location, 30 minutes from the heart (and noise and traffic) of Silicon Valley. We arrived, celebrating our wedding anniversary and they upgraded our room to a huge whirlpool suite and sent up a bottle of champagne. The restaurant in the hotel is also very good. We highly recommend... More

We stayed at the Hilton Santa Cruz/Scotts Valley which is actually closer to Scotts Valley but a short ride into the heart of Santa Cruz. We chose the location because it was only a 15 minute drive to our daughter's home in Capitola and we could use our Hilton Honors points. This is a very solid three diamond hotel with... More

Room is very clean. Stuff are very friendly. Good location. We stay here one night and have breakfast in a very nice restaurant only 4 miles from this hotel. Very close to Santa Cruze downtown. There is a very good coffe store in downtown. The blanket is not enough. Eay to check in and check out. Almost no waiting time.... More

Great location. A bit pricey and no free breakfast. Staff is great and very courteous. Rooms are nice and clean. They even have rooms with a balcony. The pool and hot tub is great. The down side is they close it at 10pm. The hotel is pet friendly and the front desk will give you a bag of treats for... More

This visit was not without its down-side (positives will follow, space allowing). My one and only authentic gripe: since our stay one year ago (it’s pleasant being nestled up in the pine trees in a comfy hotel for Christmas), nothing had been done to lessen guest bewilderment with their nutty “elevator transfer” set-up: from the Lobby, to arrive at floors...

Loved staying here, so convenient to the beach (only 10 minutes away), easy freeway access. The rooms were spacious, clean and nicely furnished, and the staff were friendly and welcoming. Will stay here every time we are in the Santa Cruz area.

I couldn't believe the size of the room. We had a suite so that my mother's caregiver could be in the same room with my parents. It was huge, fabulous, and worth it. The staff was very accommodating. The location of the hotel was close to the downtown area of Santa Cruz. It was perfect for our needs.
