My wife and I enjoyed our stay, the room appeared clean, bed was comfortable had a small refrigerator and microwave. There is a Nob Hill market directly across the road a dairy Queen on the corner and Gayles bakery just up the street, nice quiet area but not within view of the pacific. However two blocks south and four or...

The hotel was set a bit off the beaten path, but still close to the freeway. The room was nice enough for the price and quite clean. Bed was comfortable. The staff was pleasant. The area felt safe, which I appreciate when I'm traveling alone on business. Will consider another stay the next time I'm in the area on business.

My daughter went to UC Santa Cruz, and we used to stay in this hotel a lot (it was the Capitola Inn then). We were in town for a wedding, and decided to stay there again. The clerk at reception was great - very helpful. The beds are comfortable. There was good hot water and wi-fi. The floor in our...

We just stayed at the Quality Inn this past week as we were in town to meet with some friends. The Front Desk person was nice. The room appeared clean with no issues. We then went out and came back at 10pm. My wife pulled the covers back and on the bed there was a pair of women's dirty underwear...

We spent 1 night at this centrally located hotel just off Highway 1. The property is up on a little hill away from the street backing up to a neighborhood and very quiet. It is only a few blocks walk from a small shopping center with a Nob Hill foods and Starbucks and only a short drive to the main...

I have stayed here on several occasions for business. There are several restaurants within walking distance. The beach is close enough that you could walk....if you were so inclined (maybe 1.5 miles?). Peets Roast and grocery store very close. If you have children and you don't want to have to drive far to get all your needs then this is...

I stayed here for one night on business in April. I used Hotwire and got a price of $90 plus tax, a pretty good rate for this area. The stay was nice. The room was a little small and there was a large stain on the bedspread. I was on the second floor and there are no elevators. I had...

It wasn't anything special, but was nice enough accommodations. Hey, beggars can't be choosers at the beach. It's the friction' Taj Mahal compared to most other $99 accommodations in the area. The rooms were spacious and breakfast had a generous helping of choices, not just the staple toast and oatmeal that serves as a free breakfast in most hotels. If...
