“Affordable, clean, hotel”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

We just stayed here this weekend the hotel was incredibly clean for my surprise, not to mention the low rates they have. We will definitely be staying here again on our next stay, I will recommend this hotel to my friends and family.

We stayed for one night and left or phone there and the staff was honest and kept it for us. They actually mailed it back to us in Colorado. Definitely will be staying here everytime we go to Santa Cruz.

I stayed here for 3 nights it was wonderful.. front desk agent was sweet helpful and courtousy.. My parents stayed in another room for 1 night and loved it as well.. I love the floors and the bathroom it was quiet and walking distance to the Beach Boardwalk & the Wharf. Beds were comfortable and maid service was great!! I recommend this motel to anyone and you can not beat the price. I am planning to go to Santa Cruz in a few weeks and this is the place I will stay again.

Room Tip: The rooms without anyone above you is my recommendation.. The room was big there were 2 adults and 2...

We reserved a room for the maximum 7 days. It was comfortable. The 2nd nite there was a family above us that was VERY loud and disruptive, starting before 6am. I asked the desk clerk, when they opened, if something could be done about it. They offered to move us or them, and I left it up to the mgmt to decide. 2 nites it was quiet, and then they put the same people above us AGAIN, only the loudness started by 5am. I called the hotel #, and went and stood outside and rang the night bell for at least 10 minutes. Finally I just called the police. It sort of helped, but when they opened the office at 8am, I asked why they moved the same people over us after we had complained about the noise, and why no one was there to answer the night bell. I would stay again, but not in a downstairs unit.

Definitely worth the money you pay for a double. Continental breakfast could be richer though, it should offer more than a simple 7/11.
The room was particularly spacious, bathroom was clean. Appreciated the cable service.

I LOVE this hotel! We stayed there again last weekend, and everything was just as great. When we first got there, which was about 5:30 because of a family event, we watched the NFC playoffs on the 42 inch flatscreen tv. The bed was very comfortable, and the breakfast bar was just as good as in the summer. Room was extremely clean and came with a fridge and microwave. Rupesh, the manager, was very personable and helpful, just as the last time we stayed, and Reina at the front desk was very friendly and courteous.
I lived in Santa Cruz for almost 2 decades, and miss it so much. I plan to move back some day, but in the meantime, I have to say that staying at the Bay Front Inn makes me feel so much at home. Thank you again, Rupesh and staff!
