Beds comfy & clean. Room clean & very quiet (back of complex, 2nd floor). Excellent breakfast in very nice setting including outdoor tables near heaters. Food better than many "included" breakfasts. Our only complaint was beds had only paper-thin blanket. This is typical in lower end hotels & drives me crazy. We shivered until heat kicked in, but heat came...

This was not the first time we have stayed at BW Seacliff. We have always been satisfied with the facility and service. However, ths time I was a little disapointed with the attitude of the person who checked us in - not the usual cheerful and helpful demeaner.

We enjoyed our 1-night Valentine Day getaway at this motel. While it's not on the beach, it's a few minute drive to Seacliff beach. The staff was great, room was clean and comfortable, and restaurant was great. There's a nice outdoor patio option for dining. Free breakfast was a bit better than average. Families seem to enjoy the heated pool....

We spent 3 night in this great place. It was clean and very spacious. Our room and living room were separated by a door - could make for very easy planning if you are a parent. We had a mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and separate sink from the bathroom. They even offered extra little amenities like a makeup remover...

This is a good option if staying in the Santa Cruz, CA area. Just off the freeway in the village of Aptos, the location is quiet and the property has a nice pool area. An onsite restaurant and bar are convenient although there are other good eating options in the village, like Burger. I originally booked a non-pool view room...

I checked in to the hotel and my room was not ready. Instead they gave me a handicapped room that was large and located on the second floor. I do not need handicapped, but thought it would be ok. Not. There was an adjoining room and I could hear the TV blaring through the door at 3 in the afternoon....
