Front desk staff were super personable and friendly. Rooms were average. Very close to the boardwalk!

I came to town on the first weekend of summer, and was delightfully taken care of. The customer service was top notch, room clean and fresh smelling, all of my needs were met. And it was affordable. The staff "went the extra mile" to help me protect my valuable bicycles. I will make plans to stay here for future trips to Santa Cruz.

We work very hard to ensure every guest is taken care of and enjoys a nice, comfortable stay while they are here with us . We attempt to ensure that every guests leaves feeling taken care of and I am glad you did as well. We deeply appreciate the time you have taken to review us and cannot wait until the next time you visit us again at the Days Inn & Suites - Santa Cruz.

The room, honey moon suite, was nice and large but the TV was an old tube style 27" which was way too small for the room and no movie channels! Also the room was a bit stark due to no wall art. There were cracks in the wall and missed matched paint. Don't bother with the free breakfast. The coffee was more like coffee flavored dish water.We know there are better deals in Santa Cruz because we found them.
