We stayed at The Comfort Inn Beach/Boardwalk from Feb 23-24, 13. This is our 3rd visit to Santa Cruz and the 1st time we're staying at the Comfort Inn. We used to stay at the motels right across the beach but decided to stay slightly farther away since we have a 3-year-old and a 1-year-old traveling with us.

The location is excellent as the Beach Boardwalk is just 3-5 minutes walk away.

The nephew of the owner was manning the front desk when we checking in and he was very helpful. He gave us a room right beside the stairwell on the 2nd level and even offered to help with the luggage when he learnt both our kids were asleep in the car during check-in.

We're definitely coming back again!

Room Tip: If you have lots of luggage but prefer to stay on the 2nd storey, ask form room 211. The food es...

Love staying at this property. The managers, Kirti and Artie, make me feel like I am coming back to visit family and they are so involved in making sure my stay is exactly what I want it to be. The rooms are clean and very nicely decorated. Breakfast is great with healthy choices too! I look forward to my next trip to Santa Cruz and I certainly will be staying here!

We stay in Santa Cruz every year for the Clam Chowder Festival so we needed a place close to the Boadwalk. The Comfort Inn is by far the best of the lot considering the other choices. They have a Clean Room, Comfortable Bed, and a nice Breakfast in the morning. The staff is super friendly and we enjoyed our stay.

We liked our room for our family of five - two queen beds, one pullout couch, fireplace, lots of natural light (corner room), modern decor. It was clean and comfortable. The pool is more like a large jacuzzi - very small, but it wasn't pool weather anyway. The location is unbeatable - very close to the boardwalk!
They could do better with breakfast. We went toward the end of breakfast hour.The hot items (eggs and sausage) were cold. There was a microwave to reheat though. The waffle maker didn't work right . Apart from that, we were very satisfied with our stay. We would stay there again. Good value for Santa Cruz!

The newly renovated propery is hidden away and very quiet. It's walking distance to the amusements, the casino and wharf restaurants. We not on saved expensive parking fees, which allowed us to afford an extra glass of wine without the worry of driving afterwards. We enjoyed the romantic queen room with a spa on Valentines Day.. Free hot breakfast, USA Today, and a friendly courteous staff added to the value.
