Stayed in annex unit beside main house and were very happy with our large, studio-like room. Recently renovated and very clean. Nice bathroom and cute kitchen area with small fridge, microwave and sink. Very cozy and comfortable to spend a week. Only block's walk up the road is GREAT breakfast/lunch restaurant -- Harbor Cafe. Had Father's Day brunch and returned almost every morning after that! Location is central to Capitola and Boardwalk,as well as Harbor and great restaurants (Crow's Nest and Aldo's). Can book a whale watch almost across the street -- awesome! Some road traffic noise because of good location. Manager, Juanita, very friendly and helpful. Plan to make this our "home" on our annual family visit!

My wife and I were looking for a quiet, relaxing, off the beaten track, place to stay near the beach. We are from Sacramento and had a rare weekend to ourselves. The Harbor Inn offered an authentic, Santa Cruz experience without the busy "beach scene" at the best time of year - Fall. Our non-rushed, weekend featured a drive up the north coast, enjoying nature's wonders and even picking fresh, organic strawberries. When we returned, we sat together in the garden area with a bottle of wine. The owners, Chris and Claire greeted us warmly, while each went about their business of making sure the grounds stayed well maintained. The evenings were quiet, and the beds were "the best ever," according to my wife. We enjoyed a nice breakfast nearby, and accomplished our goal of "Real R&R." We would recommend the Harbor Inn to anyone looking to take a "time out" for a week or weekend.

Really lovely room with lots of light and space. A way out of the cebtre but in a nice quiet residential area. 20 minute walk to a lovely beach and another 10 onto the boardwalk.

perfect little spot close to beach away from the noise of downtown and the boardwalk. Clean quiet and spacious room with microwave and good size fridge. We stayed in room 305. This place is unique all the rooms are different.

We stayed for one night in June. The hotel accommodated our late check-in which was appreciated because they are a small operation.

We paid $129 for our room. We were lucky not to have a room near Seventh Ave. It is necessary to sleep with your windows open, and the only problem noise came from guests departing early the next morning. The room included a king size bed, mini fridge and small flat screen TV. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. This is not a luxury inn, but it more than satisfied our needs for the night.

I really enjoyed the location of this hotel, although it might not be for everyone. It is in a semi residential neighbourhood and within walking distance to the beach. It is not within walking distance of the amusement park and boardwalk, so if that is the main purpose of your stay in Santa Cruz, you might want to locate elsewhere.

If I returned to Santa Cruz, I would definitely consider staying there again.
