Explore Hotel

Experience the best of this laid-back beach town while relaxing at the Best Western Inn, just minutes from the bustling boardwalk, downtown and the perplexing Mystery Spot.

This quaint, centrally-located Santa Cruz hotel is just minutes from beautiful beaches and the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, featuring a seaside amusement park, dining, shops and more. Downtown Santa Cruz, also within walking distance, is home to even more shops and events, including a well-established farmers market. The Best Western Inn is also just three miles from the University of Santa Cruz, making it the perfect home away from home for visiting friends, family members or fans of Banana Slug athletics.

Guests who want to get away from the daily hustle and bustle will find easy access to some of northern Californias most sought-after retreats, from charming Santa Cruz wineries to the giant redwoods of The Forest of Nisene Marks State Park and Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park. This Best Western Santa Cruz hotel is also a great home base for day trips to Monterey, San Jose or San Francisco. We are conveniently located within 70 miles of five airports - the San Jose International Airport is just 35 miles away. For those traveling for business, we are also located close to ONeill Brand, Cruzio Internet, Fullpower Technologies and Plantronics.

This Santa Cruz hotel offers amenities perfect for the leisure and business traveler alike. Our 100 smoke-free property features spacious rooms with complimentary wireless high-speed Internet access, a fitness center, free local calls and free parking. Guests start their day off right with a complimentary continental breakfast, and relax at the end of the day with a soak in our year-round hot tub enclosed in a cozy gazebo.

Hello There! Thank you for taking the time to leave a review about your stay with us. All feedback is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much for your nice comments about our cleanliness, breakfast, and staff. We understand that parking is a bit of a hassle given that our parking lot is so small. We have a strict one car per room rule and when one guest doesn't follow that rule, it messes everything up for everyone and we would like to apologize for the inconvenience, or any inconvenience that you might've experienced while staying with us .
