Overnight escape to visit Shadowbrook restaurant

Very welcoming concierge. Large, clean room with nice amenities (iron, ironing board, hair dryer, maps of area and suggestions for activities, cable, mini fridge, coffee, etc). Nice looking pool and hot tub. Lovely posters of annual begonia festival and wharf to wharf runs. Average continental breakfast. Comfy bed!!

Shadowbrook restaurant is an amazing dining destination on nearby Soquel Creek. A complimentary classic car will pick you up at this hotel and take you to the restaurant.
