A good value for the location. The room was basic, but had everything we needed. Breakfast was very nice for what they called a continental breakfast. Staff was very pleasant to do business with. We had a room in the back on the top floor and was very quiet. This location has plenty of easy parking. Would recommend this location... More

First I would like to say that the manager, Upen Patel, was quite efficient and friendly. All areas of this inn were clean and orderly. The inn is located for a short walk to Santa Cruz proper, and offers an easy ride by car or bus to the Boardwalk. Four of us, two adults and two children, found that the... More

Its right across the street from the best ice cream in town. The location makes it easy to get to the beach and Soquel. The rooms are clean and quiet. The parking is very secure with lots of lights and a security camera in the covered parking lot

Stayed at this hotel while visiting UCSC. Location was close to downtown and fairly close to the University. Room was well maintained and very clean. Seemed a little expensive for a motel, but the price was comparable to other places nearby. Staff was friendly and helpful. Free wifi. Refrigerator and coffee maker in the room.

While the outside of the hotel needs a bit of a refresh (the sign and street-facing side of the building are decent, but could be more attractive and inviting), most importantly our experience from the moment I walked in the door to check-in to the time we left was excellent. Mr. Patel greeted me immediately, welcoming me to the hotel,... More

I think prior reviewers were way to generous. The photos show bright rooms - not so much. The room was dark and depressing. Beds comfortable. Seemed clean, but hard to tell in the darkness. Bathrooms have been updated and are nice. Breakfast is typical for a Quality Inn - at $79. Owners super friendly and easy to please. I would... More

Room was not bad, but price went up too high for the weekend. I thought $280 for one night in Santa Cruz with only street view was very expensive. Front desk allowed me to extend checkout time by 30 minutes not for an hour.

We were attending a wedding in the area and had to make last minute hotel reservations. After looking at some of the "nicer" hotels we just couldn't pay that kind of money for what they offered. The Quality in was less than half of what most of them were asking and had vacancy, so we booked. The staff was friendly... More
