My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night. We went to the boardwalk which was just about 8 miles from this Best Western in Scotts Valley. Super easy drive to and from SC beach boardwalk. It's also relatively close to Big Basin and the Mystery Spot. There is a jack in the box next store you can walk to and a couple gas stations within a block. There was also a Mexican cafe we did not try, but also within walking distance. There are no nice restaurants, shopping or nightlife without taking the short drive into SC.
The room was older, but clean and well kept. For an older room, we were impressed to see that there was no mold or rust and the carpet seemed pretty clean. The bed was comfortable, but not super soft. The water pressure was good too. The room was quiet even though we were above the swimming pool which was also clean.
The staff at the front desk was super friendly and was prepared for our check in upon our arrival. Check out was also a cinch. Less than two minutes I would say. A complimentary continental breakfast was provided.
Overall, I would recommend this room to anybody that needs a room near SC that doesn't want to pay the same price (or most likely more) for a dirty, run down hotel that offers location very close to the boardwalk. A short drive can give you a little more for your money. Also, I would only recommend this hotel for a short stay like 2 days max. If you are on a vacay and not a weekend trip I would recommend spending some extra money to stay closer to the main attractions and have the amenities of an upgraded room.
