My family and I loved this hotel. We will definitely be staying here again this year. It has everything we needed. Swimming pool for the kids, food for the family so we did not have to leave the premises and of course a bar/lounge for us adults! The continental breakfast was more than I expected!

For our family this was just an average hotel. The rooms seem older and could use some freshening up. The breakfast in the morning was good and convenient. We stayed in the 300 building and did not like that the only way to get to the lobby was through the lounge/bar area. It was awkward in the evening when people... More

This is a very well run and friendly place to stay. The rooms are spacious and quiet. The staff are willingly helpful. There is a very good restaurant and bar attached. The included breakfast buffet has heaps of choices, all very good. It is very conveniently located near Highway 1 and the many attractions around the greater Santa Cruz area.

First of all- I travel with what feels like a circus and sideshow - AKA; two kids under ten with epic numbers of boogie and skim boards, scooters, etc. as a single mom. I am pretty careful about not inflicting our menagerie on hotels/motels/inns unless they are really family friendly. The Seacliff Best Western- is awesome! The staff is great,... More

We have been going to the Seacliff Best Western for 25 years now! It started when our kids were little- close to the beach , Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk , shops, etc. The pool area was always clean and fun! The kids got older and it remains a great little get a way spot for us as a couple now.... More

Good hotel, well run, excellent location, great breakfast buffet, pleasant rooms. Not cheap, but this area is pricey so it's well within the typical price range. Close to the beach and a short drive to downtown Capitola and Aptos Village.
