Stayed here for a couple of nights last summer when attending an event in Santa Cruz. Actually it's called the Los Gatos Motor Inn. All the good motels in Santa Cruz seen to double their price by August, so I looked for something nearby and found this hidden gem. Prices were great and the room was fine. While not big and lacking some amenities, it was not the smallest room I have stayed in, and it did have a small fridge. The area was quiet even though the motel was next to a road near exits to both north and south of town. This was very convenient for me since it got me on the hwy to Santa Cruz quick that evening (after a nightmarish afternoon driving through East Bay traffic), and to San Jose the next morning where I did some shopping. Los Gatos is laid out rather oddly, so I did not realize at first that the Motor Inn is actually near their historic and touristy part of town, which I visited that second afternoon. The morning that I was about to leave the motel, an older man fell in the parking lot as he was re-entering his room. I went to the check-in counter to find help, but no one was there at the moment. Upon returning, I found several of the staff were attending to the man. It was nice to see cleaning ladies and groundskeepers so concerned with a guest's well-being. Speaking of groundskeepers, the grounds around the motel are beautiful, as a previous poster said. Overall, staying at this motel was a positive experience.
