Thank you for staying with us and we will make sure the hot food is hot next time you visit. Turns out the power shutoff to the two food warmers without us noticing. We will do a better job next time. Thank you

It was very convenient to the location of my sister’s Memorial service. I’d stayed with Best Western hotels before and have always been satisfied.

Nice hotel and very convenient!

Pros: We enjoyed everything about the hotel.
Cons: Nothing
Location: Santa Cruz and the beach views are a short distance away.
A great experience as we were traveling from out of town. The hotel provided everything we wanted and needed. We were greeted by Blake at the front desk and he made us feel right at home and was very accommodating.

Simple hotel which is close to everything

Pros: Clean and close to everything. Nice to have plenty of parking.
Cons: Breakfast, see above.
Staff was very helpful. Room was fine. Plenty of space, clean and comfortable. Only issue we had was with breakfast, would have been nice to have eggs, potatoes and such. The sausage and egg sandwiches were awful.
