My wife and one of our daughters were on a quick Spring Break trip down the coast from Oregon. This was our farthest overnight stay South before we headed home. We checked in to this hotel late and it was quite an adventure. We got our room key and went to our room and the beds were unmade and there... More

Stayed one night. Staff was friendly and polite. Minor issues at checkin. No toilet paper or soap in room. Had to go to front desk and follow clerk to storage room. Back Wardrobe door not on track. Room clean. Wifi, television, fridge, microwave, heater/air conditioner all worked. Ad online indicated there was a pool, one reason I booked with them.... More

My family read the reviews for the Sunset Inn a few years ago (they were all very good) we found the reviews to be dead on! Since then we've been back several times each time finding something new and unique about the Inn: like it being right around the corner from Seymour Marine Discovery Center (a must tour very educational)!...

Pros: Car to door easy parking for unloading. Very spacious room with couch and desk. Bed comfortable. Room clean. Fridge and Microwave Reasonable rates comparatively. Cons: Nothing really bad, however I would suggest housecleaners not spray room so much with whatever they use because the smell stayed all night. Also, surface of shower/tub was unusually slippery. I would provide tub... More

Close to family, UC Santa Cruz, our favorite beaches (half mile walk), lots of places to get to-go/fast food, real food, Safeway, restaurants and easy access to downtown, too.Downtown, wharf, boardwalk is about 5-10 minutes away. Rooms are basic+ (TV, coffeemaker,micro, fridge, cozy chair,... More

I came here a few times now and I still love it. It's clean, comfortable, and the staff is great. I haven't had any troubles with the people here and it's in a convenient location. Also it's close to the beach and close to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk it's awesome and I recommend coming again or make it your go-to... More

My husband and our toddler and baby stayed two nights here over Labor Day. The room was very clean. The mini fridge was handy and so quiet! The king bed was comfortable, but the pillows were not (bring your own!). The fold out sofa bed was saggy and didn't fold out properly, but my toddler didn't care; an adult would've... More

I'm one of those people always looking for a deal but really wary of budget hotels. boy, was I pleasantly surprised. Staff is friendly and efficient. Really helpful. Room was spotless, new furniture, AC, cable, coffee machine and microwave. No burns in the carpets; fresh towels and even a small Jacuzzi outside. Is it fancy? No. But it's a great... More

We decided to come look for a room instead of book one online. So glad we did. We have had a run of filthy motels everytime we came to Santa Cruz. But this is definitely where we will book again. The room we were in is comparable to a Holiday inn. Very clean with a suite like setting.. The room... More

This hotel is a short drive up the coast from the Boardwalk, a pretty drive at that. It's close to shopping and restaurants (Safeway, Panda Express, Gamestop, etc). The area felt safe and everyone was friendly. It is a one story place with doors leading outside, which normally would feel scary to me, but not here. The rooms were updated... More
