Easy on and off freeway. Parking available to room. Both vending machines for sodas or waters on opposite ends of property were out of order. We went to the bar that was still open to request 2 glasses of water.

Unfortunately the vending machines are not ours.The outside company that owns the vending machines was called several times and they finally came to fix them. Sorry for the inconvience.

The hotel was a very spacious and very clean I would love to come here again. I guess the only thing I would change is guest service before 5 o’clock.

CLEAN and looked like newly renovated rooms. NO nasty carpet. NO odors. Nice wood laminate type flooring. Much better than never cleaned carpet. Quaint rustic feel. Beautiful property and the Back Nine was a great place to eat/drink. Comfortable beds and quiet! No hesitation in staying there again.

Don't believe the website pictures

Pros: location
Cons: Renovate rooms, landscape the grounds, upgrade the continental breakfast.
I haven't stayed at the Inn for 15 years, and heard they had renovated and added a restaurant. They did a nice job on the bar, and a lunch was wood. Did not return for dinner. Little if anything was done to upgrade the rooms. Traffic noise on the front side. Small sink, shower door was broken. Breakfast "fruit and baked goods" consisted of a bowl of apples and oranges, a few fruit yogurt cups, and small grocery store quality sweet roles. Orange juice was from a concentrate. I was really looking forward to returning here, and the website pics made it look quite upgraded. Not so.

Pros: Location is good for avoiding gridlocked weekend beach-going traffic.
Cons: Travelocity needs to correct their web description of late check-out $50 offer. The hotel needs to train their staff about Travelocity offers.
Location: A good location does NOT outweigh my disappointment about the unavailable $50 late check-out and my COLD SHOWER on July 29th.
I reserved a two night stay, because Travelocity's web description states this hotel offers late check-out for a $50 extra charge. When I checked in on Friday, July 29th, the hotel's front desk staff had NEVER HEARD OF SUCH AN OFFER for late check-out. That same evening, there was NO HOT WATER in the building where my room was located, so I had to take a very chilly COLD SHOWER or miss some much-needed sleep. This was doubly disappointing, because I was scheduled to compete in an open ocean endurance swim on Sunday, July 31st, the morning of my check-out, and I was counting on a hot shower during my $50 late check-out to help me recover from the swim. During my first night at Pasatiempo Inn, I figured I would be just as comfortable checking out the next morning and sleeping the second night in my vehicle. However, Travelocity had ALREADY CHARGED my credit card FOR A TWO-NIGHT STAY. I was STUCK! Fortunately, hot water was available by Saturday morning, but this did not alleviate my need for a late check-out. In total disappointment, I expended my energy reloading my vehicle and checking out of the hotel at 6AM on my race day.

Nice Hotel

Pros: Fabulous restaurant located at the hotel. Highly recommend it.
Cons: Would have been perfect with AC.
Location: Almost at the Ocean beach exit. Easy drive to the beach or downtown to shopping or the wharf.
Considering the prices of the nearby hotels, this was an fare price. The room was cute but offered no special amenities. No air conditioning! Did have a ceiling fan and box fan in the room. Quite clean but dated. Bed was comfortable. Had pool. No breakfast offered.

Pictures look better than the actual rooms

Pros: Easy to find close to HWY 17
Cons: Hair dryers, update the shower
Location: Santa Cruz boardwalk is beautiful ,Lighthouse area awesome spot great romantic walk.great restaurants.
When we got there we thought the room was smaller than what the pics had shown. Also no hair dryer my girlfriend needed a hair dryer but the room didn't have one so called the front desk to ask and they said sorry if there's not one in the room there isn't one around sorry is all i got.Tiles in the shower were painted over and the paint was peeling off in some spots. Shower needs updating.
