The room was very clean and comfortable. Loved the fridge in the room. The staff were so very nice!!! We had to stay an extra 2 nights due to weather and they were amazing at making us comfortable. Loved having room service available. The free breakfast was great.

Great place to strut I wouldn’t recommend eating there. Dinner was not very good for all of us. Tasteless steak or hamburgers and watery sauces cost $240. Even the bread was blah.

Clean, comfortable, handicap room.

Pros: Restaurant and exterior landscaping.
Cons: Carpet.
Location: Santa Cruz. We stayed there to go to the hospital.
Handicap room with 2 queens. Carpet was a little worn but room was nice size and beds comfortable, quiet. Hangers were too high to reach. Fridge, coffee maker, roll in shower with seat. Nice restaurant on site.

Home like feel nice amenities

The staff were all very friendly except the front reception staff. There were three not doing anything and I felt as though I was intruding to check in . I normally am very generous but these three women were unfriendly , bordering on being rude.

Beerfest weekend!

Pros: Location near beer festival.
Cons: Price gouging.
Location: Cool spots to eat/drink near by. Burger is a cool place with lots of beer. Also Aptos BBQ is screaming good. Lots of beer on tap also.
The one and only reason I stay here is the convenient location near the annual beerfest. This place is ridiculously over priced. But location location location. Thought I was getting a balcony suite. When saw our room wasn't one, I contacted front desk. They said they could not switch our room although plenty of rooms had not been checked into yet. It was definitely possible. The carpet was kinda stained and a few what looked like cheetos were around. The bed was insane firm! My hip still hurts 2 days later. The free breakfast wasn't terrible. They could switch it up rather than same thing every morning.

Pleasant, but a bit far from the beach

Pros: Good breakfast with eggs, meat, french toast, and more. Nice restaurant patio for hanging out and meals.
Cons: Phone system didn't leave messages.
Location: 3/4 mile from the beach.
The hotel should really be called the Best Western Garden near Route 1. It's a very pleasant oasis with a good restaurant (including excellent free breakfast), nice outdoor patio by a Koi pond, small but usable pool and friendly staff. Our room was spacious and bright, even without the sliding doors to a porch that most rooms have. However, it's a noisy 3/4 mile walk across the freeway along a major road to the beach. Once you're there, you'll have a smile on your face, but the walk back up the hill may change your expression.
