“Very pleasant stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

We celebrated our birthdays with a stay on the coast. Very nice accommodations and helpful staff. This location was central to short hops to Santa Cruz and Monterey. The beach is a very short hop by car, or moderate walk down the street.

The Seacliff Inn is beautiful. South of Santa Cruz and Capitola is the place to stay. Beautiful scenery in the Santa Cruz Mts. Nestled among pines and redwood trees and near a beautiful beach. Amenities include bar and lounge, restaurant with free breakfast and discount meals, pool, beautiful grounds, pond with fish, and near shopping. Highly recommend. My wife and I enjoyed the hotel very much.

We had a nice experience at this hotel. The rooms are clean (although the bathroom was a bit musty), but a little small. The breakfast is great and we had a fun time in the pool. Don't let the dated exterior fool you, this hotel is quite nice.

If you are in the Santa Cruz area and you are looking for a wonderful and peaceful place to stay, consider the Best Western Seacliff Inn. You won't be disappointed. The staff are professional, the rooms are clean, the meals are fully satisfying. The hotel is close to the freeway, numerous stores and banks, clean beaches, restaurants and other entertainment. I give them an A+.

This is our second summer in a row staying here. We LOVE it. It's a great place for our kids who always make friends at the pool. Rooms are always clean and both times we have stayed here, they have allowed for an early check in for us, which is convienient because we come from the HOT, HOT valley. We leave early in the morning to get to the cooler weather, so it's nice to be able to check into our room and unload all of our stuff before we HIT THE BEACH!!! It's a comfortable place to stay, although I personally think the beds could be a little more comfortable, but all in all it's pretty awesome. The grounds are beautiful and we frequently eat at Severino's because Aptos doesn't have much in the way of restaurants. We enjoy the free breakfast buffet. It beats most hotels that only offer a muffin and coffee. For people who COMPLAIN about the breakfast....really?!?! It's waffles and french toast....can't go wrong there. We plan on returning every summer. We love the location to the beach. So easy and close and we just RELAX when we get there. Very, very satisfied with this hotel!! :)

We stayed here for 5 days when attending a family funeral in Santa Cruz. The room was clean and spacious. The grounds are lovely. We were on the ground floor so our room had a patio. Our patio did not face the pool, which we were glad about when the pool got very busy and loud. Breakfast in the morning was included and was very good food. The restaurant and lounge on premesis has a happy hour every day and live music on weekends. There happened to be four wedding parties and a 40th birthday that same weekend so everything was very busy, but the staff was friendly and efficient. We will stay there again, for sure. Shout out to DEBBIE the hotel manager who went out of her way for us. Thank you.

Room Tip: The patios facing the pool are not very quiet or private. They are convenient for families with kids...
