I chose this hotel because it was close to an event that I was attending. I had no idea it would be so nice. The price was reasonable so I wasn't expecting much. The gentlemen that checked us in was very pleasant and friendly and when he said I was eligible for a free upgrade to

We have stayed here twice, and really enjoyed our stays. The location is very convenient-close to the harbor and several great beaches. Easy drive to downtown and Capitola. Unusually good breakfast. Very pleasant owner and staff. Good wi-fi.

The last time we visited the Santa Cruz area (in June) we had reservations in Boulder Creek. That rental was such a nightmare that we didn’t even stay one night. We had a completely different experience in October at Bella Notte. PROS 1. Except for loads of flowers in

Bella Notte is a good choice for a safe stop in Santa Cruz. It is by Twin Lakes, walkable to the beach. Busy street but rooms are well insulated. Some good restaurants close by including one of my favorites, Lago de Como. Also Johnny's on the harbor and if you must get some

I was in the largest room upstairs and yes there was a DVD player in the room. I think you can even check out movies in the office but no doubt there’s probably a redbox close by for rentals. You will love this little place. I stayed in #10. Big room with kitchenette. They also have premium movie channels. You won’t be sorry if you stay here. I’m originally from the area and it’s a better place to be than down near or on the boardwalk.

This place is pretty quiet so I would worry too much about noise from other rooms. The rooms are well designed, radiant heat bathroom floors. We loved our stay!

"The upper floor has cathedral ceilings."
"the king suite was fabulous"
"No elevator to the second floor."
"We heard ahead of time that downstairs rooms experience a lot of noise from upstairs rooms - we stayed upstairs"
"There is no elevator. So if stairs are a challenge carrying your own luggage, request a first story room."
