Comfort Inn Santa Cruz

Great stay for both business and family vacation

Our family of three stayed for two nights while visiting our niece at UCSC. While my husband took advantage of the comfortable desk to work several hours every day my young daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the small but pleasant pool and hot tub area. The room itself was clean and pleasant. Our room had two queen size beds that were very comfortable, great bathroom with separate bath tub and shower, and nice desk area. The only cons were the rather loud busy street which was noisy early in the morning and late into the evening. I wish that the room that had a table for eating at all though there was plenty of room to picnic on the floor. in the future I might ask for a room that is not facing the street. Otherwise the hotel was quiet clean and pleasant.

Bay Front Inn Santa Cruz

Ok cheap spot. Good location. Mediocre room.

The staff was super friendly and accommodating. Our room was not great - kind of what you'd expect at this kind of hotel, although our friend stayed in a different room at the same place that he said was significantly nicer, so it may just depend on the room. Good location - walkable to the beach & the town. Overall not a bad spot considering the prices around SC.

Ramada Limited Santa Cruz

Not Very Good

I would not stay again. As a last choice, I would only stay 1 night. TV did not work.
