Benicia, California
Reviewed 17 February 2017

Great Place !!! Quiet. Peaceful... easy access to the beaches and freeways. The staff is wonderful. I felt safe traveling alone. This hotel is a Sweet Spot !!! No traffic !! I felt very secluded but yet so close to every thing. The staff was warm and welcoming. The food was great.

Agreed, the Inn is the perfect place to flee for a little respite. Wake up to the smell of the pines, spend your afternoon sunning on the sand. We're happy to have been a part of your relaxation. We'll be here, nestled in the forest, with a smile and a room when you want to come down for round two.

I highly recommend staying here, they have great rooms, with a good restaurant/bar. Located near hwy 17 and easily accessible to santa cruz and highway 1 for a nice trip up the coast. The room was quiet and the bed was extremely comfortable.

Our location off 17 can sometimes make people feel as if we may not be centrally located, thank you for pointing out that this truly isn't the case. Being just outside the most popular areas is often a benefit to accessibility. From here you're on the highway in a minute, and can be anywhere in town under 10. Stop by...

We had a nice time. All went well. We will be back. Enjoyed the area. The golf course is a great one to play but can be tough to score. We liked our room and the Back Nine Restaurant was a nice place to have a drink and eat.

Always happy to hear about another satisfied customer. Assuming you didn't take advantage of it last time; please inquire about our Golf Package if you plan to hit the links next visit. You save on the room AND the green's fees.

All in all a very comfortable /convenient place to stay situated on a beautiful golf course ideal for walks and tranquility. Very lovely staff at the front desk and restaurant, which has excellent food in a cozy setting. By the way, the lobby of the Inn is very welcoming with a warm fire going in the fireplace all day.

We are always so pleased to hear that our guests enjoyed the stay. We work hard to provide a welcoming ambiance. Next time you're in the lobby enjoying the morning starters you should ask about ongoing improvements, we'd love to brag about all our new shiny toys.

The Inn at Pasatiempo has many pluses: in motor-court style, it is situated at the Pasatiempo road exist along Hwy 17, just outside of downtown Santa Cruz. The price is right, the rooms cleaned (daily!), and one can almost over-look the retro-50s feel (almost), if it were not for the frayed feel of the place. For those old enough to...

Thank you so much for your review! You're in luck. I'm sure you noticed the renovations that have taken place in our lobby, restaurant and conference space. The rest of the property is not far behind. With good fortune your next visit will include all the things you loved AND all the things you hoped for.

Check in was efficient and the lobby and lounge have been pleasantly upgraded and were nicely decorated for the Holidays. Our room was a short walk from the lobby and lounge which made it easy to enjoy the complimentary continental breakfast in the morning that included coffee, tea, pastries, yogurt and fruit. The Inn features one level rooms with exterior...

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. I'm glad to hear that everything worked out so well for you. Next time I hope you take a moment to enjoy the Back Nine Grill and Bar. My favorite is the Pulled Pork sandwich.

Reviewed 19 December 2016

This place is pretty much a bare bones experience, just this side of a dump. It's not terribly convenient to anything, breakfast is really coffee and packaged sweet rolls... and it didn't seem very clean. The pool was out of service and they added $30 onto the TA rate because of our pup.

I'm so sorry that we didn't manage to impress you during your stay here in Santa Cruz. We are a 2-star location but we feel there is plenty to recommend us. We are actually quite centrally located to most of Santa Cruz County's attractions, without the hassle of fighting city traffic first thing. Our morning starters (included with your stay)...

Hotel was nice but restaurant associated with hotel has very rude manager. Refused to service us because there were 12 of us. We even said we would take two tables. They still refused us. We did complain to hotel and they were looking into it. This was the 4th time we stayed here.

Psatiempo Inn has become our favorite place to stay when visiting friends at Pasatiempo Estateso or Santa Cruz. Nice ambiance, quiet. Staff is great, food is good at the Bar Restaurant. The hotel and gardens have been updated (grounds still in progress). Kid and Family Friendly, nice pool for family/kid swimming.
