“The hotel improved a lot from my previous stay.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

The front staff people were very friendly. The maid did a good job cleaning the room. I loved my stay better then the last one. I had a pretty bad expecting in terms of cleanliness. But with this stay, I would it was improved by 100%. I loved the location of the hotel and the rates were affordable.

We stayed on a Saturday night and it was a great place to stay. Nice clean room and great waffles for breakfast. The price was right, we booked through the hotel and got a better price and free on site parking. We will stay there again on our next visit .

I recommend this place. The staff is very nice and accommodating. We arrived at 2:00 in the morning and were allowed a late check out. Rooms are clean and comfortable. It's an older place but well taken care of. Very affordable.

My boyfriend and I were celebrating our 5 year anniversary and decided to take a trip to Santa Cruz. We were going to see a show at The Catalyst and wanted somewhere close by in walking distance. We went in a limb with The Bay Front Inn and we were not disappointed! It's was super cute, clean, and the staff was awesome! It was a 10 min walk from The Catalyst (if that). When we got there we couldn't find a spot to park, and the staff went and found somewhere for us to park. Even the breakfast in the morning was awesome. Next we go to Santa Cruz we will definately be staying there!

Pretty good place to stay; price is reasonable, the breakfast was good and our stay was pleasant. Staff was extremely nice and the hotel is located very close to downtown Santa Cruz. I would definitely stay here again :)
