Great mattress & pillows...quite comfortable & quiet. Easy access to all of Santa Cruz & south. with the best ice cream shop in Santa Cruz, Marianne's, open 'til 11 PM right across the street. Surprisingly comfortable for the price.

We came down from San Diego but perhaps we left our heart there. This hotel was average. When we arrived, we were assigned to the 3rd floor. No elevator in sight, so we had to carry our big luggage upstairs. The room was clean and comfortable. The mattress was sort of rough. Mine and my boyfriends back hurt the first... More

Very quiet hotel given the all night action of this fun filled city. Rooms sit back well off the Main Street. Older hotel but well maintained and clean. Staff was very helpful, courteous and friendly. Breakfast area was a little small but had a very well stock variety of fresh foods to choose from. Satisfying and enjoyable way to start... More

Rooms were very clean and the staff was very courteous and helpful. Great location -close to downtown and the boardwalk. Breakfast was plentiful and the breakfast area was clean. I recommend this property if you are staying in Santa Cruz. A few decent restaurants within walking distance.

We stopped by the quality inn in Santa Cruz at short notice and mr Patel the manager looked after us very well. He was extremely helpful and gave good recommendations for dinner. The hotel is extremely comfortable and spacious, with breakfast included. Great location as well away from the busiest part of town but very central location. Would definitely recommend... More

I have been staying here for two nights with my teenage kids and we enjoyed it very much. The staff were friendly and efficient and the room was spacious, tidy and comfortable. The area seems quite safe and it is only a ten minutes walk to the city centre and about 20 minutes to the beachfront. We had no problem... More

My husband and I just stayed at this hotel last week. We really enjoyed our stay. This hotel is very clean and basically has everything you need. The front desk is very friendly and helpful. On our next trip to Santa Cruz, we will definitely stay here!

We chose this by the value (breakfast included) and ratings on Tripadvisor. There is no elevator- and our room was on the 3rd floor with outside steps. Breakfast was a good value with waffles, eggs, sausages, cereals, fruit, yogurts and pastries. Room was clean and in good condition. Front desk staff were friendly. Only downfall is it's about 1.5 miles... More
