Much research showed that many of the hotels in Santa Cruz are rowdy motel-style beachfront shacks. Thankfully, we discovered Bella Notte. It is a family-run, newly constructed oasis of cleanliness and hospitality in Santa Cruz. It is centrally located and has ample parking. We stayed there for the first night of our trip on our drive down the coast, and it was very comfortable. The rooms look exactly like the pictures on their website. Everything was very clean, and there were ample amenities such as free water in the room, HDTV, plush bedding and robes. We had a fireplace in our room which was very nice. Since this hotel is fairly new, all of the furniture in the room was new as well, and it had tile floors which we prefer to carpet. Our rate was $179 for a Monday-night stay in October, and we felt that was fair.
