Danville, United States
Reviewed 17 October 2016

Hotel is well located both to the freeway (highway 1) and less than a mile to the beach. The room could have been cleaner. The bed was wonderful and restaurant staff and food are very good. Despite the location next to the highway you don't get any highway noise in the rooms.

I have stayed in perhaps hundreds of hotels across the spectrum -- luxury, generic corporate, budget, extremely budget -- and this was by far the biggest ripoff I have ever experienced. The check-in staff gave us bad information and put us in a room that required that we drag our suitcases up rough concrete stairs. The room was very basic,...

Our stay was pleasant at the Seacliff Inn. The grounds are expansive and nicely kept. Our room was nice, modern and clean. The lobby is nice and we were greeted by a friendly employee who was very patient and helped us with questions and suggestions. It appeared they were remodeling some of the grounds, which made the parking a bit...

I would not recommend to anyone, due to the safety issue we experienced. The staff at desk did not use could judgement and I am grateful I wasn't in the bathroom and having that man enter, That would have been a scene no one would have liked.

I generally like the Best Western chain. Most of them are well kept up, and their not outrageously pricey. But some are nicer than others. This one - the Seacliff Inn in Aptos, CA - is especially nice. Pleasant, clean, very well kept up, nice gardens and walkway, a clean pool, etc. Has a few amenities I liked, such as...
