I returned to Santa Cruz for a business trip after living there for a few years. If you cannot afford to stay at the Dream Inn, this is your best bet. The hotels near the boardwalk are in my opinion unsafe. They get broken into from time to time; I just wouldn't take the risk. The Mission is a very basic motel. The rooms are clean enough- just beware of the strong smell of cleaning fluid, and on the dark side. But, if you've come to Santa Cruz, you probably are looking more for a place to crash and won't be spending much time in your room. The hotel is a couple of blocks from the amazing grocer New Leaf Market and the rooms come with a fridge and microwave, so you can self cater. The motel is also a stone's throw from the very nice O'Mei Chinese restaurant. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I also felt safe there even though I had a ground floor room. Oh, and it's quiet in the back at night.
