4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

My kids and I had a great experience at the Days Inn, Santa Cruz. This place was so much more than we expected. The staff was so nice and accommodating, the room was spacious and clean. The delicious "make your own waffles" breakfast was a big hit for the kids. The swimming pool and hot tubs were great, specially after a long day at the Boardwalk. Our room was on the first floor right across from the pool, which everyone appreciated even our little dog who was able to explore the grassy surroundings and play fetch -- We couldn't had asked for more!
A special thanks to Ash Vaishnav for his outstanding customer service!

First, Ash & the rest of the staff are fantastic & very friendly. Ash also makes you feel like he remembers you .The rooms are very spacious & very clean, ( I check everything ) The water pressure in the shower was fantastic The man in charge of the breakfast keeps everything clean & stocks everything right away as needed. I do wish they had scrambled eggs & or yogurt also , as it is all carbs, they do have some fruit but I do appreciate what they do have. It does look like they have room for 1 more table also. The grounds are kept immaculate! It is only 4 short blocks to the boardwalk, and it is perfectly safe. Also it is quiet. Nice pool and outside area to sit and relax. Thank you for a great stay.
Georgia PS they also have a microwave. coffee maker ( with coffee & tea ), & refrigerator. Thank you for a very pleasant & CLEAN stay!

My last trip to Santa Cruz was the best. Ash and his team at days inn knew everything and made it all smooth. The pool, the hot tubs, the washing machine, dollar night on the Boardwalk, yummy waffles for breakfast that you make by yourself on a waffle iron-- we did it all!!! Thank you, Ash,for a great deal and a great time.

We were pleasantly surprised with this 2 star beach jem. We arrived to our spacious clean room. It was more than adequate for our stay. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. The hotel was within a short waking distance to the boardwalk. The breakfast was sufficient and well stocked as people depleted the items. The breakfast area was kept clean. I would stay at days inn again. I recommend this hotel to anyone who wants an inexpensive and comfortable stay
