What a wonderful place to stay the facility is clean and the staff are so helpful. They are the greatest hotel in the area and so close to the beach. We had a wonderful dinner with Salmon and Rack of Lamb. We went to the beach and sea glass hunted for hours and came back to a warm welcome at...

We enjoyed our 1-night Valentine Day getaway at this motel. While it's not on the beach, it's a few minute drive to Seacliff beach. The staff was great, room was clean and comfortable, and restaurant was great. There's a nice outdoor patio option for dining. Free breakfast was a bit better than average. Families seem to enjoy the heated pool....

We spent 3 night in this great place. It was clean and very spacious. Our room and living room were separated by a door - could make for very easy planning if you are a parent. We had a mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and separate sink from the bathroom. They even offered extra little amenities like a makeup remover...

This is a good option if staying in the Santa Cruz, CA area. Just off the freeway in the village of Aptos, the location is quiet and the property has a nice pool area. An onsite restaurant and bar are convenient although there are other good eating options in the village, like Burger. I originally booked a non-pool view room...

Convenient location. Clean, comfortable rooms, laundry and free breakfast looking out over lovely garden. Loved the heated outdoor pool for late night swim followed by relaxing soak in hot tub under the stars.

I checked in to the hotel and my room was not ready. Instead they gave me a handicapped room that was large and located on the second floor. I do not need handicapped, but thought it would be ok. Not. There was an adjoining room and I could hear the TV blaring through the door at 3 in the afternoon....

This hotel is a combination of buildings that really need updating. We stayed in an accessible room that was quite large, but not really close to the breakfast area or main lobby. The room was very clean but shabby, with low windows that looked out into a parking lot. It was dark and dreary, somewhat depressing to stay in, but...

Friendly service is coupled with a lovely garden setting in a great location near restaurants and beaches. The bar is full service and offers an informal atmosphere. Best Western Seacliff Inn is located near Hwy. 1. Your stay can't get much better.
