We love this place, it's close to a State Park, and shopping area, and the restaurant bar is fabulous. When we were there they had live entertainment,which I understand is a weekend event throughout the year. The State park has a beach and pier. Great walking place.

Room Tip: All the ground level rooms in the garden have patios. great for entertaining.

This is the 3rd time I have stayed at this location. 2nd time on new years eve. Located right off hwy 1; it's close to the beach walking or driving. There is a Safeway gas station/shopping center directly across the street for any supplies you may have forgotten. Aptos roasting coffee shop in there too...check out my TA review. :)

Comfortable beds; lots of pillows. Save yourself some money and take the no pool view rooms. A little more quite especially if people are in the pool.

Rooms are clean; flat screen TV; nice bathroom soaps; plenty of mirrors; refrigerator in every room;great llighting system and a nice size deck.

Some improvements needed: The heating/ a/c system is old school and could use an update. Sheets and blankets are thin; wear something warm in the winter months. Some doors slam shut, others don't. Walls are very thin. And entrances into the sections should require a room key to get into the common hallways. I've never felt unsafe, but that is a security issue they should address.

Staff is friendly; some seemed more informed than others. Late checkout option is nice and a perk. Being a Best Western member comes with a few perks as well.

Room comes with a decent complementary breakfast.... eggs, sausage, bacon, potatoes, waffles, cereal, oatmeal, toast, fruit, yogurt, coffee, tea, juices and milk.

Overall a great experience and stay. Pool area is nice and relaxing....enjoy the stay!

Booked at this hotel by our gracious hosts. Location is excellent but not very friendly for walking activities, rooms were a tad tight for 4 people but clean. Food options were simple cereal, bacon, eggs, fruit but adequate. Dining room can get very busy in the morning.

Fitness center equipment need to be replaced. Hotel grounds were well kept. Pool was very inviting but unfortunately had no time.

Will probably look for other options on our next Aptos stay.

I read the other reviews of this property and ask myself, "Was I staying at the same hotel?" The room was clean but, as others have mentioned, sparsely furnished, and the bed was uncomfortable. The heater turning on and off at night made for uneasy sleep, and we could hear other guests moving around and using the restroom. The breakfast was nothing to write home about - scrambled eggs, sausage links, roasted potatoes, oatmeal and a variety of pastries & yogurts both days. On day two, the only time I tried it, the oatmeal was cold. To be honest, this was one of the poorer hotel stays I've had in a while. Would not return.

We have stayed here for the last 10 years, and it is a great spot to stay. Severino's has very good food, a great bar with live music, and a good breakfast. The rooms are clean and warm, the rooms are spacious and always clean. The hotel is also good at updating systems such as quiet room heaters and air conditioning.

We enjoy Aptos, and this is a great place to stay!.
