LOVED this hotel. Didnt seem like a hotel at all, more like a resort..with the beautiful landscaping, nice pool and spa area, and your own private deck/patio. The family atmosphere was awesome..felt right at home here! The breakfast was very good and it is right off of the main highway so very easy to get to and from attractions in...

Room and room amenities good. Parking a little strange due to the shape of the property. Central common area was very well designed with Koi Pond, waterfall, landscaping, foot bridge. Restaurant faces this area. Just "feels good". We ate dinner at the restaurant, food was very good. Will definitely recommend to anyone traveling in the area.

Excellent hotel close to beaches and nightlife in Santa Cruz. The room was very comfortable and clean. Their restaurant served us a great dinner. The included buffet breakfast had a good variety of food and drinks. The swimming pool and hot tub were close to all the rooms. We had a very enjoyable stay.

Stayed here 2-nights while our home was being fumigated. Room and linens were very clean. Liked the location, the beach is only 5 minutes away by car. There is a Safeway across the street from the hotel, which is very convenient.

We booked the BW SeaCliff because of it's location and the 2 bedroom family suites. We were disappointed with both. The area is nice, but for some reason, there was a fog layer over Aptos for 3 of the 4 nights that was not in Capitola/Santa Cruz or Monterey. I can't figure that one out, but it was a depressing...
