This place had some wonderful staff that were very polite and accommodating. The rooms were also very nice. The location of the hotel is ideal for sight seeing. I had to put up a client in the room for a couple of nights. The staff made my client feel very welcomed. I would highly recommend this hotel for family or... More

This is a bit of a unique review because I didn't actually stay at this inn. My story goes like this- I was on a week-long retreat with my family at a lodge up the coast. I was called into an emergency work-related conference call and the wifi at the lodge was not good. I drove into Santa Cruz looking... More

My husband and I were on a weekend trip for out honeymoon/summer vacation. When we first walked in we thought it was a really nice room and I loved that the vanity was separate from the restroom and shower as it allowed for me to get ready while my husband showered. The room was equipped with a fridge and microwave... More

We stayed one night coming back from San Francisco and taking a day to visit the boardwalk. Everything was good, the room was large, and nicely modeled. My only complaints were the hot water took too long to heat up both shower and sink and the florescent light in the vanity area, the frig is placed inside the entertainment center... More

I was in town for a conference at UC Santa Cruz and wanted someplace NOT near the Boardwark. This little place was wonderful. We arrived near the check-in time and were welcomed to the property by all! Upon check-in, because my husband is so very tall, we were offered a FREE upgrade to a King room. This, alone, was so...

We stayed here one night. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Close to a shopping center and lots of restaurants. There is a breakfast room with good options to start your morning. Would stay here again.

Mission Inn is a basic motel that is both clean and well maintained. The front desk and housekeeping employees were very good, and took excellent care of us. On the plus side: Free WiFi and guest desktop in the lobby, plenty of free parking, a hot tub (no pool), and complimentary breakfast. Good restaurants and grocery shopping within walking distance....

The Mission Inn was comfy and quiet, and the staff were all really nice, friendly, and helpful. I ended up never trying the hot tub, just because the room was so cozy that I caught up on my sleep instead. Very convenient walking distance to shops, restaurants, and UC Santa Cruz.

My boyfriend and I stayed two nights here and it was great! Santa Cruz doesn't offer much in the hotel department so finding this Inn was a nice surprise. Our bed was so comfy and I wish I could've spent my stay just catching up on much needed sleep. Our bathroom had a jetted tub which was also a plus... More

We stayed here for the first time in March 2016. It is a motel but very comfy, nice rooms some under renovation at the time. Rooms open to the outside with ample parking, we had no problems. The breakfast was nice as good as we seen at Hamptons etc. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. As described it is... More
