After reading the reviews, we were expecting more, especially for the price. The room, while spacious, was strangely laid out; the bathroom did not have adequate vanity space and the soap, and shampoo did not want to be easily dispensed; turning on the air conditioning was tricky. The reception space is extremely small; the eggs were cold; they had run...

Dear CoastToCoast1944, thank you for staying at Bella Notte. We were very sorry to hear you were disappointed with your stay. I think its important to note you stayed with us during UCSC graduation weekend which is one of the busiest and most expensive weekends to stay anywhere in Santa Cruz. Given Bella Notte's small size and relative ranking our...

My wife and I stayed one night after departing from a 3 day stay in San Francisco. The drive down the coast to Santa Cruz was amazing. And it was nice to complete the trip in a great inn just a few blocks off the beach. The room was great. You can tell the owners invest well in the Inn...

We were very impressed with our two-night stay at this hotel. The room rate was reasonable for the area and quality of the accommodation. Nice sized room with a comfortable king bed. The room was very clean and featured amenities such as heated tiles in the bathroom, a pull out mirror near the sink, satellite tv, wifi, charging/USB stations on...

We stayed three days in the Bella Notte Inn on our highway 1 trip down south. The hotel is clean, modern and has just a block away from the twin lakes beach. The innkeeper was very friendly. The room was very spacecious and we especially liked that there was a little room for the baggage. The breakfast was good although...

Our room was very clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The Inn is located within walking distance of the beach, harbors, and boardwalk. This is not the typical room because of the use of tile and marble. Complimentary water in the room was a very nice touch. Staying in a lower room allowed noises from above...

We only stayed for one night at the start of our holiday. Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The bed was really comfy. The accommodation is well maintained and the staff were all lovely. We didn't see much of the area as we arrived quite late in the evening. A walk down to the beach is a must though.

We were on a business trip and the usual places I am booked were sold out, and we happened upon the Bella Notte. This small property was 2 blocks from the beach and close to dining and shopping. But the best part was the property itself, with great landscaping and flower boxes, large, quiet and up to date rooms, even...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for our anniversary we really liked the place, it was nice and clean. It was a little too pricey but I think it's reasonable. I liked the hot tub. And the breakfast was ok and free. Overall I would stay here again if they lower the price. We only stayed for a night. It...
