Granite Bay, California
Reviewed 3 December 2016

Pasatiempo Inn is in a beautiful setting - Convenient to Santa Cruz. The rooms have high ceilings, very well decorated with good sized windows and pleasant views. If you are a golfer you couldn't be in a better place. The breakfasts are fine. There is an elegant restaurant attached.

Thank you for your kind words. You've hit on several aspects that we take special pride in. Our Back Nine Grill and Bar is delicious and so very convenient. If you haven't, try the Pulled Pork sandwich the next time you're in. If you plan on golfing next trip, call in and ask about our special pricing via the Golf...

I remember it being a lot different last time I was here 10+ years ago. Great update. The room was tastefully redone and comfortable. Was in town for a wedding and boy did I get more for my dollar than the rest of the bridal party that stayed right off highway 1 in Aptos. Awesome location with easy access to...

Value is one of our strongest selling points. With our location just outside of downtown, and access to both major highways, all of Santa Cruz County is within reach. Starting your day without fighting traffic is a welcome reprieve for our guests. Flanked by trees and the beautiful Pasatiempo Golf Course, the Inn serves as a comfy oasis without losing...

We have a dog so it is very tough to find decent hotels to stay at that don't charge an arm & leg to accommodate your four legged family member. The Inn at Pasatiempo is wonderful, a bit of an older hotel but very charming and updated. The beds are very comfy, like the ones you might find in super...

We enjoyed staying at this classic hideaway near Santa Cruz but away from city. Old style motel with clean, updated rooms and super comfortable beds. Parking convenient to rooms. I appreciated the nice chairs provided. We were driving minutes away from Boardwalk and Old Town yet nestled in the woods and lovely setting next to golf course. The staff was...

Make no mistake: it's a motel, not an "inn", albeit with a pool and a wedding lawn. football stadium size parking lot up to your door. idling trucks at 11 PM. paper-thin walls - do not expect to sleep. sewer smell around the swimming pool. And in true Travelzoo fashion (2 out of 3), had to ask for my discount...

The Inn at Pasatiempo is an iconic 1950’s two star motor lodge inn. The property has a convenient location and is situated adjacent to the world class Pasatiempo Golf Course. The property is in the midst of transition and renovation, with many updates already completed. The travelzoo deal recently published, allowed guests to enjoy the property at a hugely discounted...

Thank you for your four star review. We currently offer morning starters each day for overnight guests – this consists of whole fruit, fresh hot coffee and baked goods.

Overall, it was a positive experience. The location was great for my needs and the cost/value was great. The property itself needs a major revitalization. It would be outstanding, hence my title "Great Potential".

Thank you for your feedback. Our lobby and restaurant have been beautifully renovated and our brand new state of the art meeting space re-opened in Oct 2015. We are nearing completion of a newly landscaped wedding garden and a large outdoor deck remodel is imminent. I hope you will return to enjoy the continued property improvements in 2017.
