          We spent a whole week there. The staff was exceptionally pleasant and accomodating. Breakfast was great! The place was quiet with a very nice jacuzzi. We will be back there for sure!

          The carpets could use updating. The beds were just ok. Please update the TV'S.

          King size bed and large room

          The location was a bit far away from centre of town and in a dodgy neighbourhood

          • Average rating
        • Older travelers

          definite great price for the location and space. Very nice. We'll stay there again for our future trips to Santa Cruz.

          The caulkin around the bathtub left something to be desired. Our view was less than stellar - it was to a blank wall about 3 feet from our window. And there were no instructions on how to use the jacuzzi tub. Thanks.

          It is 7 minutes away from ucsc. Underground parking is great. Continental breakfast is convenient.

          Best value for the Santa Cruz area...combination of quality for a reasonable price.

          Poor quality of breakfast.

          Very friendly staff. Room was large. Bed was comfortable.

          Audio on TV was not good. Not much water power in shower.

        • Older travelers

          They had a good set up for the complementary breakfast. Plenty of room for a lot of people.

          No view to the outside. We faced a building wall. However we were not in the room for the view. We went places.

          You can walk easily to the citycenter and in my case to the Civic Auditorium on Church Street where I attended the concert of Bonnie Raitt. Also, the 3 computers in the lobby were functioning and were free to use. Free parking is also provided.

          Only Breakfast is possible (which by the way was pretty ok). It should be a pleasant surprise if you could have lunch and dinner also.

          The staff was pleasant, readily available, and helpful. The room was large and very clean, and the bed was surprisingly comfortable with plenty of pillows. Fresh linens were provided every day. The rooms open out onto a large lobby where a nice continental breakfast is served daily. I was concerned the noise from early risers would be a problem, but the room was soundproof enough that I had to look through the peep hole to see if anyone was having breakfast. The hotel is centrally located in downtown Santa Cruz, easy to find, and easy walking distance from some quaint shopping areas and the Santa Cruz Boardwalk.

          The bathroom is cramped. The jetted tub I'm sure is a nice feature for some, but the big step into and out of the tub/shower was somewhat difficult for me. The tub bottom was very slick, and I was glad the hotel provided a suction-cupped mat that helped me keep my footing. I was there on a holiday weekend, so the price was somewhat steep.

          Very friendly staff; very helpful.

          Not really close to e.g. the beach/boardwalk

          From the moment we stepped into the hotel we received excellent service. Our room was fantastic and we were very pleased with the array of food served as the continental breakfast. Overall, I would rate pricing; cleanliness; service all EXCELLENT.

          Nothing, we were very pleased.

          The hotel is comfortable, rooms well furnished and clean with good sanitary facilities. The hotel staff friendly, professional and very helpful. Parking is available below the hotel. Shops and restauarants are nearby and Santa Cruz main street is 15 mins walk across the bridge to other side of the river.

          The hotel layout is perhaps a bit unpersonal as with many other Best Western facilities. In that sense it suits the business traveller better perhaps.

        • Older travelers

          The room was comfortable and spacious, especially the bathroom/shower/tub. Having two T.V.s and a fireplace (even though it wasn't used) made the room feel special. Even though the room was on the street, the street noise wasn't a problem, maybe being on the third floor helped.

          The breakfast eating area wasn't as comfortable. It was dark and could use an upgrade. For the first two days of our three day stay, the bananas were totally green.
