“Clean and Comfortable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

Best Western Hotels have always been consistant and that is why I stay there. Bedding is all cotton, 4 pillows and bed cover is always fresh and clean and comfortable mattress. I really enjoy the breakfast with eggs and sausage, waffles, yogurt, cereal and staff is always friendly.

This is my ultimate favorite hotel to come and be relaxed at and "mellow out". I came here for the hotel experience, not necessarily for the location. From here you can choose a variety of locations to visit that are all close by. The staff are always so friendly and helpful, can't find a better continental breakfast at any hotel, and my favorite thing to do is sit by the koi pond and watch the hummingbirds in the trees and flowers. That view is also my face on my cell phone and has been for quite a long time!

Hello Susan H,

Wow what an amazing review! I am delighted to read you had a lovely stay with us. As you pointed out, our service, complimentary breakfast and landscaping are just some of the reasons that our guests come back here time and time again. Guests love sitting in the sun by our beautiful Koi pond and the soothing sounds of the cascading waterfall are so relaxing.

I do hope I have the opportunity to welcome you back to the hotel in the not too distant future.

Warm Regards,
Management

I came for an overnight stay with my family and had a pleasant stay. The hotel is located in close proximity to many wonderful beaches and parks. That said, they are driving distance. It is definitely not located where you can walk to anything.

We had the king suite with a jacuzzi tub. Overall the room was clean, the decor was ok but the hotel surrounding was nicely landscaped and quite serene. The pool (though not very well heated) and hot tub opened year round were nice to have.

The free hot breakfast was a great value with eggs, sausages, potatoes, french toasts, oatmeal, bread, pastries, apples and bananas, coffee, tea, milk and juice. The only down side was that there were several events at the hotel so there were many people, the food went fast but the replenishment was not as quick.

We also ate at the hotel restaurant for dinner that night, the happy hour prices were great, the food took a while to come and was alright but the servers were attentive and friendly.

The one thing that could have made our stay better would be the lady at the front desk. She was not rude but was not particularly friendly, warm or helpful either.

Otherwise, it was a good stay considering everything went fine, just nothing impressive overall.

This was a first night stop after flying into the area prior to a longer trip down/up the Central California Coast. At $89.00/night I wasn't expecting much. Rooms are older but clean. Grounds, pool, & hot tub very clean. Staff very nice. Very comfortable bar with pretty good bar food. TV reception was pixelated and wi-fi was inadequate. Standard free breakfast in the morning.

A must stay when in Santa Cruz County...all the amenities you could ask for in one hotel. Restaurant is top rated with a wonderful cocktail lounge. Pool and hot tub area surrounded by beautiful landscaping makes you feel like you are in a tropical vacation spot. Wonderful friendly service. We have been staying at Seacliff Inn for over 20 years and have never been disappointed. Centrally located to everything.

My wife and I wanted to get away for one night to celebrate her birthday. We arrived in time to take in the football game in the lounge. It was a wonderful choice. They started Happy Hour early. The appetizers were fantastic, the drinks well priced and service was great. We had a great birthday dinner at the restaurant that night. All in all it was a near perfect choice for our short get away. We will certainly stay here again when in the area.
