“Quaint, convenient,friendly staff.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

This is your typical quaint inn motel style. It is right near the golf course, and ten minutes to the beach at Santa Cruz. Their food was very good with little surprises to make it unigue. Thed beds ok. The walk to restrooms from restaurant needs updating for sure. In room coffee lacking extra sugar and cream for two. Continental breakfast ok. Whiskey sours are excellent!!!

My wife and I stayed for 5 nights and were so impressed. Very clean and very nice employees. My wife had stayed at the Inn at Pasatiempo a couple of years ago and she loved it. We were able to stay there during our recent vacation. Thank you for a great stay!!!

Booked this late due to bad traffic in San Francisco we were not sure what we would get. We were very happy with the inn, it was clean, looked recently painted. We ate that evening at the restaurant at the inn and fully enjoyed it. Bed was very comfortable, come to find out pasatiempo has a top 100 golf courses in America, pasatiempo country club, I didn't have time to play it but I went and checked it out. When I go back to San Fran in 18 months I will definitely go stay here and play golf, the course is a bit pricey at $250 green fees but that's what it runs in the Monterey area. The hotel is kind of a throw back of the old days, but was well taken care of and it is right off the highway on the way to Monterey .

This is a nice basic, clean hotel. The bed was comfortable. There was no air conditioning but the window and the ceiling fan made the room comfortable. It was within 15 minutes of anything we wanted to do in Santa Cruz and it was right off the main freeway which was quite convenient.

Room Tip: There was no spa that I was aware of ....not even a hot tub or jacuzzi. The pool is outdoors and loo...

Decent hotel from appearance and cleanliness standpoint. Not in Santa Cruz but right outside. Staff is ok.. Not great, not terrible.

The trouble comes in if you're a professional. Lack of central AC is interesting. A throw back to the old wild west days i guess. Worse yet is internet connectivity which is all but non-existent. If you have web-base applications you work from, or the cloud, it's pretty terrible and you'll be looking to check out early and hit your local Starbucks to get some stuff done. I got roped in via a hidden name 3* ad for an amazing rate. Probably will have to re-think doing that.

If all you need is a bed, should suffice.

This was the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed at. The bathrooms were spotless, even the tracks for the glass shower stales were absolutely spotless!! So after I saw that I checked for dust anywhere else in the room and there was done to be had.

The staff were very helpful and so nice to deal with.

This will be the place that I stay whenever I am back in that area. The continental breakfast served daily was very adquate, and on Sunday we paid and ate the Brunch that was served there and it was well worth the cost.

The location is wonderful. Everything we did all weekend down there was very close to where we were staying.

I would recommend this facility to everyone. It will be my choice whenever I am in the area.

Room Tip: They also have rooms with fireplaces. We just stayed in a normal room, but there are many choices, s...
