We were happy with this place for a last minute booking. Nice room that seemed recently updated. Friendly staff, easy parking and comfortable room. Very quick on/off the highway. Good Indian restaurant across the street too.

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed December 9, 2016

This hotel is situated in the San Francisco hills 6 minutes from the Santa Cruz State Beach, Boardwalk and pier. Absolutely unbelievable the moment we walked in. Front desk staff was very welcoming and very professional. We spent the evening in the lobby Lounge (Stonehouse Bar & Grill) with holiday decorations surrounding us. The appetizers were out of this world...

This was a staycation. Worn down by rain! This is newly renovated. Clean and nice place to stay. The restaurant, Stonehouse Bar and Grill is better than many hotel restaurants. Nice break! I recommend the Hilton, unless you want a view. Then go to the Dream Inn!

This was easy to find. The breakfast was great. Nice bar atmosphere for unwinding. Clean rooms and hotel and friendly staff. Our only issue was 1 morning the breakfast staff were not very engaged in doing their jobs, good thing it was essentially self serve and you didn't have to wait on them much.

Good location, adequate parking, eye-appealing exterior. The lobby was very nice & staff helpful. Beverages are available in the lobby. Rooms were clean & had a coffee maker, micro & small refrigerator for your convenience.

Beautiful property! We were there for Valentines Day. Upgraded to a beautiful room. Spent three days around the area. Lots to do, and lots of places to visit close by. Employees are very courteous. Very quiet room.

I have stayed at this hotel for the last several years. I typically reserve the King Suite which is a nice room. However, this stay it seemed the Suite was prematurely aged. What was not excusable was the dirty linen and stained comforter. For $300 wash the sheets Hilton. Also the carpet in the room was coming up and fraying....

Management response:

Thank you for taking the time to give us this feedback. I am sorry to hear about the poor condition of our suite in regards to the linen and the carpet. Our hotel just completed a renovation to all our guestrooms in April 2016 and this is certainly not a norm for us. We noted your constructive feedback given at...

Just that. Found it a couple of years ago as it was offered at a discount on one of our UCSCC Alumni Weekend visits. We stay there every time we come Santa Cruz or San Jose now, as it is extremely comfortable and we love being nestled in the Redwoods.

I just returned from three nights in this hotel, while I traveled on business. It was a very nice experience! My room was great. The bathroom was amazing, everything was clean and modern, and the beds were average. (Hilton always has good beds!) I was very impressed at how large and new the bathroom was. I wished my bathroom at...
