Great Romantic Getaway

Would recommend Sun, Sep 14, 2014
Came here with my wife. Had a great time in nearby Santa Cruz downtown, and boardwalk (walking distance, but driving is better). Good breakfast, you can take it to your room or eat there.

Arrived to be greeted by friendly staff. Rooms were really nice. Beds were comfy. Only slight downside is road noise but hard to fault otherwise

little oasis close to the heart of santa cruz

Would recommend Sun, Jun 23, 2013
Cute place within walking distance of boardwalk, downtown core, beach. Rooms are nicely decorated, very comfortable, inviting and clean. The Inn is tucked off a busy street so we could hear the traffic from the our room (Fern Grotto) closer to the street if our door was open but it didn't bother us (and don't remember hearing it with a closed door). Staff is genuinely helpful and the breakfast was scrumptious! A great place to come back to and stay a bit.

Attractions

Shorter walk over to the Boardwalk to enjoy the fun. For a longer walk, go straight to the beach and north to the Lighthouse park -- great stroll and sights.

Very relaxing with great staff

Would recommend Tue, Aug 14, 2012
Our room by the creek was very romantic. Appetizers and wine tasting was very nice. Food at breakfast and happy hour was very good. The staff was very informative and cheerful, always willing to help us find restaurants, etc. Rooms were clean.

Fantastic grounds, comfy bed, but rooms not so luxurious

Would recommend Tue, Jul 17, 2012
We loved the setting for this place - lots of places to relax outside with plants and flowers everywhere and even a covered bridge. Lobby setting is comfortable and they have a wine + hors d'oevres reception for guests each night. The bed was completely comfortable but the room itself could use a little TLC. Window was stuck open and required my boyfriend to walk outside in the plants to push it closed at night. Staff was very friendly, but other than apologizing didn't do much for the broken heater in the room (with an unseasonably cold evening!). Full breakfast included was great, though!
