I'd say the best thing about this place is its location. 5 minute drive to the water. 10 minutes to the Boardwalk. Near a few nice restaurants and bakeries for breakfast. Walking distance to Safeway. The room itself is perfectly fine. Honestly, a little less impressive/nice than the pictures might appear...

We enjoyed our stay at the Mission Inn. The hotel is well cared for, rooms and common areas are clean. Breakfast buffet was better than I expected (but does not open until 7:30). Wireless worked well. Staff was friendly and seemed to care abut their work. I would stay again.

Hotel room was very clean, bed very comfortable, great air conditioning. Location was on the main street, very close to some Restaurants, very good customer service at front desk. Continental breaksfast was provided - standard items provided in 2 locations. Only improvement would be more lights in the room ( room on the dark side) and more electrical outlets for...

Mission Inn is located outside of the city centre of Santa Cruz, so you would have to use a car or other transportation to reach the main street and the board walk. There is however some restaurants (we did not try them) and a big grocery store nearby, and also a laundry a bit further away. The staff was friendly...

Rates were good but the room was dark and not nice. Front desk lady was pleasant but young and could not control loud guests above me. At 10:20 their children started jumping up and down and made it impossible to sleep. She called and they said they would try to be more quiet. I tried again to sleep but it...

Thank you for taking the time to share your suggestions with Mission Inn. We were made aware of this incident of excessive noise, and wanted to come up with a satisfactory solution for you. Unfortunately the guests above you felt they had quieted the noise and further stated their children were asleep. We felt the best solution would be to...

A smaller local hotel with Santa Cruz character. Lovely room, very clean with all basics covered. Exterior is inviting and the interior courtyard was perfect in the evening with a glass of wine. Breakfast covers tasty hot foods and grab and go delights too. Staff provided great advice and directions.

This hotel well met our needs for the past weekend. It's not within walking distance of the municipal wharf/ boardwalk, but it is only a short $10 cab ride. When we checked in and out, the front desk staff couldn't have been more friendly or accommodating. Even as you are heading out the door, they want to make sure everything...

Great hotel for the price. Friendly staff, comfortable bed, quiet at night and a very decent breakfast (although Kelly's French Bakery is a short walk away and much better). Plenty of restaurants and a large Safeway are all within walking distance plus it's a short drive to Natural Bridges and the good walking path along West Cliff Drive.

Really nice and clean place to stay with my family, the only thing I didn't like that there was motorcycle noise before 8am. We had a lot of fun, it's close to a lot of places and beautiful views.i love this place so much.

We needed a place last minute for personal matters that one can never predict. The jacuzzi is open late, which was a plus. Location was convenient to Safeway, Falafel. The overall location wasn't great for the court house, which is why didn't stay the following stays in Santa Cruz. The front desk was always helpful in whatever we needed. Overall...
