Very nice motel, the rooms are clean and equipped with everything you need for your stay. Also the manager is very friendly :-) ! If we come back to Santa Cruz some day, the Quality Inn will be our choice again!

Had a awesome 2night stay. Nice clean rooms and friendly staff. Breakfast is really good. Just a mile away from the beach and half a mile away from the downtown. I would definitely visit this place again. :)

Comfortable, clean room on an overnight stay. Kind and hospitable staff. Located centrally close to boardwalk, shopping and restaurants. Recommended for a family trip on a budget. Nice continental breakfast that all will enjoy.

Easy check-in followed by good flexible support for our bedding change needs for the family of 5. My best night's sleep in over a fortnight. Spotlessly clean room and bedding. Fantastic breakfast- the children loved the waffle maker! Thank you.

We went on a family week-end trip with our son and his family. Management was very friendly, ensured that we had rooms located on the top floor as requested. The beds were very comfortable and breakfast was great value for money. The location is very convenient for visiting the area.

The hotel was basic but clean and tidy. The room was very generous size. Good location. The staff were very lovely and helpful. There is a breakfast included but it was quite basic and busy if you go at a peak time as it is in a very small room. Parking is included and plenty of it. I would stay...

Needed a reasonably priced place to stay for one night so I would not have to drive back over the summit after a late night with my young son. I got a GREAT rate off of Trip Advisor for this place and booked it. It was easy to find and the staff was really nice. The room was clean, however...

My wife found this hotel when our daughter became a student at UC Santa Cruz. The hotel is fine, clean rooms and convenient for UCSC & Downtown. What makes this stand out is the hotel manager, Mr. Upen Patel. I've been here several times and my experience with Mr. Patel has been excellent. He is gracious, professional, humble and truly...

This hotel got very good reviews on TripAdvisor but was not at all what we expected. I always rely on TA for help with out of town planning but this time I felt misled. The staff is friendly and welcoming but the hotel is essentially a strip of rooms on a main street. The rooms are dated and tired looking....
