We stayed here over the weekend and was pleasantly surprised. We got 2 queen beds for my hubby, 2 kids, and me. The room was spacious and the beds were warm and cozy. WiFi worked well and it was nice walking distance to the beach. They have free breakfast (cereal, milk, oatmeal, yogurt, fresh fruit, toast) and the service staff...

I was only in town for 1 night, but I could easily spend an entire month in Room 8 at Bella Notte. It was like living in a Studio apartment, it had everything I needed! The bed was big and comfortable. BIG walk in closet. Lots of counter space with a sink, a fridge and coffee maker. The "in wall"...

This place is the real deal. I would come back anytime I'm in Santa Cruz. I was so impressed with the staff and the rooms were very clean and comfortable. The location is tough to beat because you are close to the ocean in a comfortable part of town. I love Bella Notte.

We were supposed to have stayed at the Ocean Echo Inn but as we traveled during the rainy Feb. the tree grove next to the Inn was collapsing around the hotel and they evacuated. I greatly appreciate their concern for safety and recommending the Bella Notte to us! The Bella Notte turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. They...

Spent one night here on a drive up the coast. The room was GIANT and beautifully decorated (though not a decor I'd choose at home). Lots of room to move around-- I think I even had a little dance party, since I had the space. Comfortable king bed. Jetted tub big enough for two. Robes provided. Breakfast of fruit and...

We booked because of the excellent reviews and stayed in room 6 for 1 night. When booking I liked that you selected your room at that time and therefore should be able to ensure the room is suitable. However, the description of the room on the website didn't mention that there was a connecting door with room 5 and I...

We had driven up the California coast and this was our last stop before flying back to southern California. The room was not only well maintained but spotless . . . a welcomed relief at the end of a busy day.

The room was spotless and well-maintained. Convenient enough location if you have a car. Short drive to great restaurants, beach, etc. Check in and out were easy and pleasant staff. No elevator to the second floor, but staff offered to help with luggage up the stairs if needed.

Hotel was redecorated beautifully about five years ago. Rooms are spacious and we'll appointed. Bathroom is comfortably large. Tile floors are heated through out. The location is between Capitola and Santa Cruz in a quiet neighborhood, walking distance to the Ocean. Excellent value.
