The Bella Notte Inn, meaning 'beautiful night' in Italian, is the place to stay when visiting Santa Cruz. Initially, I was apprehensive about booking 2 nights/3 days for the lady and myself because the price seemed too inflated. Once we arrived on site, our stress levels faded as Michelle cordially allowed us to select a room.
Michelle presented us 2 rooms and we selected room 4 as it contained a bubble bath; the other room was much larger but was reserved for the handicapped.
From the duck down pillows by Pacific Coast to the romantic ambience created by the room's light features, we will definitely stay here again.
Our favorite features:
*ample parking: although if the inn was full, I don't think there is enough stalls for every guest (even with 1 car space per guest)
*cordial welcome: Michelle allowed us to select our room and suggested local restaurants; Al, who I believe is the owner, was also friendly
*room amenities: heated bathroom tile, bath tub with jet feature, romantic lighting, wet bar, fridge, mirrored closet with robes, sandals and safe with keypad, very comfy pillows and bed...everything was simply wonderful
*breakfast: boxed cereal, Costco muffins, fruit, english muffin, apple or orange juice, and other selections
**location: Mexican restaurant approximately 250 feet, Twin Lakes Beach in just 7-10 minutes walking, and a quick drive to the boardwalk, downtown and other local attractions
*the lobby also has a DVD library which we failed to utilize
