This is the best hotel in Santa Cruz. The rooms are clean, spacious, and all around nice! I have a bad back and loved the beds, slept like a baby! The hotel is clean and the staff was great! Breakfast was good and for a Starbucks drinker the coffee is good too.

Room tip: Easy to get to from boardwalk. And amazing if you got a bad back.

This hotel has spacious and quiet rooms. It is quiet as it far from the Boardwalk where all the happenings are at. But, getting to the Boardwalk is easy as there is a ton of Uber drivers in the area. Just like any other Holiday Inn Express hotels, they offer free breakfast. Parking is at the lower ground. It is pricey aka California rate.

Phenomenal service. Went here last year for my anniversary and a day of beer drinking in downtown SC. Great accommodations, parking on site, and a good value for the money spent. Will stay here again.

Stayed here before move-in day at UC Santa Cruz and was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable the beds are! I got a fabulous night's sleep. Not a seaside location, but it's close to campus and does a good job accommodating your overnight needs. Plus the morning breakfast was surprisingly vast. I was expecting a typical continental self-serve breakfast but this one had omelets, bacon, turkey sausage, pancakes as well as the typical continental fare. Would definitely recommend for a short stay in the area.

We stayed 3 nights and they raised the rates to almost $250.00 for the Friday night stay. Hotel was similar to most other Holiday Inn Expresses. we just thought this was a lot to pay for one even in California

Room tip: We got the third floor and it was quiet
