NUMBER OF ROOMS
I really wanted to like this place. We visit Santa Cruz often as our daughter has moved there, and are looking for a place to make “ours.” Having read the reviews I booked the Bella Notte with excitement. Sadly, our room “is the only one without a fridge” though we wine tasted on the way here knowing there’d be one. There’s no closet. The room is cute and there’s a little fireplace in the corner. The manager was expecting us. Nice touch. We are in the middle of our stay but so far, it’s not what we’d hoped.
This hotel is really clean and comfortable. The room looks like it had been recently remodeled but in a nice 50s style. Location is great as is the staff. It’s my go to hotel in Santa Cruz from now on.
If you recognize this place for what it is – decently appointed bedroom - you will not be disappointed. However, the very limited continental breakfast does not start until eight. The staff may forget to empty the grounds from your coffee maker and not replace the used bag with a new one for the next day and You may not even have a small refrigerator in your room. On the positive side: - the room is left clean and neat (Except for the above described coffee situation) by the staff every day. - The office staff is very friendly and willing to help. - there are a good many things to do within a short car ride. - Our bed was extremely comfortable! I maybe could have given it a 3.7; but, it’s just not a 4.
This is a nice, clean, small hotel in a good location but on a busy street. It’s an easy walk to the beach and very easy to get to Santa Cruz or Capitola. The street location can be a little noisy but with the air conditioning or heating on, the room is very quiet. The room is furnished nicely and the bathroom Is sparkling clean! We had a standard king room on the second floor. Please note that the rooms open to the outside and the second floor is accessible by staircase. However, it is a reasonable price, comfortable accommodations, good location and very clean. I would stay at Belle Notte again.
We had a great stay of 2 nights in room #8. We enjoyed the heated floor in the bathroom more than we thought we would! The beds were comfortable, the room was clean and spacious. There was great lighting throughout the room. Our second-floor room had a high ceiling that gave the impression of even more space. The bar sink and refrigerator were convenient. The walk-in closet was a luxury that we have never had in even the best hotel rooms! The bathroom fixtures, electrical outlets, lighting , finishes, etc. were all first-rate. The front desk staff was helpful and friendly. I suppose if there was a downside, it would be the tiny breakfast area and very basic muffin/fruit/coffee etc. breakfast, but I only say that because so many other places are upping their game in this…
