    « Worn out »

    Over priced for a worn out hotel. Grounds are nice in the center of property. Staff is very polite-but I would only stay again if nothing else available. It would take a lot to remodel but would be worth it.

    « Great comfy place to stay »

    I have been staying here for almost 20 years. Great place to relax, best bar and food is excellent. Bar specials, best $8 burger around, nachos are filling, or try the steak salad. Chicken Piccata my favorite, half rack ribs also all menu items are good, Great beer on tap selection. I think I have tried almost everything on the menu and never disappointed. Koi pond is fun and the rooms are always quiet and comfy. Good internet access and yum on the breakfast.

    « Lovely grounds »

    The grounds here are definitely a high point, much nicer than I expected from a Best Western. The staff were all friendly and the bar/restaurant had good food. Rooms are spacious and clean. If you're staying in building 2 I would suggest requesting the even numbered rooms that face the pool as the odd rooms face the parking lot and highway. They traffic noise wasn't all that bad at night though and the sliders and drapes keep a fair bit of noise out. The location was close enough to lots of sights and shops. I would recommend this hotel if you're looking for something of quality that is reasonably priced.

    « Value and Service were Great! »

    Great experience with extremely nice staff in every area that we experienced. Design of the hotel was nice. Our room was quiet for sleeping and the bed was comfortable. Near freeway but noise was not an issue.

    « Newly renovated »

    Our room in the 500 building was newly renovated. The drapes, walls, bedding, flooring were all new looking. The bed was a little hard for me but OK to sleep on. The air conditioning was quiet as was the room. Our room looked out to the garden and we had 2 chairs and a table which was nice. The landscaping is great and it is nice walking around. Having Severino's restaurant on the property is nice. The included breakfast is the typical and the staff does a great job.

    « Just Right For The Price »

    Stayed here for just one night. Really like the set up of the hotel. Rooms were very clean and included a refrigerator. Pool and spa is nice. Free breakfast was excellent. For the area, the price was just right. Also the hotel offers an excellent military discount so don't forget to ask for it.

    « Beautiful surroundings »

    This hotel was very nice. Our room was clean and modern. The grounds were beautiful. They offer a free breakfast with a nice variety. The staff was awesome, so accommodating, attentive and helpful. Unfortunately the people in the room next to ours were very loud and boisterous until 1 am. Then we heard them say they were going back to the bar. Aaah quite for a while until they came back around 3 in the morning and were loud again. Reported it to the front next the next morning. They graciously offered us a discount credit for our room. Awesome customer service. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

    « Photos don't do it justice »

    This hotel is a mini-resort with a pool, waterfalls, a Koi pool, outdoor dining, small fitness room, and room buildings tastefully arranged in a circle around the pools. Completely isolated from the major roads nearby, it provides a surprising respite from the trucks and cars on US 1 and the hustle bustle of Aptos business traffic. The rooms are comfortable with patios on the first floors. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and highly recommend it.

    « Great place to stay »

    I would definitely stay again. The only thing i regret about this trip was not staying longer. The staff at the hotel was nice, property up to date, grounds were beautiful and the location was great. If you have a few hours bring your running shoes and hit the trails for a great workout.

    « Favorite Hotel in the area »

    Third time I've stayed at this hotel. Each time has been consistent excellent service from all personnel. Management is terrific, rooms are clean and relaxing, in room dining is delicious, overall the BEST place to stay. Highly recommended! I'll definitely be back. Remember your swimsuit for the hot tub and pool.

    « Stay at SeaCliff Inn »

    Hotel is well located both to the freeway (highway 1) and less than a mile to the beach. The room could have been cleaner. The bed was wonderful and restaurant staff and food are very good. Despite the location next to the highway you don't get any highway noise in the rooms.

    « Terrible »

    I have stayed in perhaps hundreds of hotels across the spectrum -- luxury, generic corporate, budget, extremely budget -- and this was by far the biggest ripoff I have ever experienced. The check-in staff gave us bad information and put us in a room that required that we drag our suitcases up rough concrete stairs. The room was very basic, wildly out of line with the exorbitant rate we were charged. The door latch was broken, the air conditioner was noisy and smelled musty, and the vanity faucet leaked all over the counter. I literally feel like I was robbed.

    « Quick trip to the California coast »

    Our stay was pleasant at the Seacliff Inn. The grounds are expansive and nicely kept. Our room was nice, modern and clean. The lobby is nice and we were greeted by a friendly employee who was very patient and helped us with questions and suggestions. It appeared they were remodeling some of the grounds, which made the parking a bit confusing but all in all we found this hotel to be quite nice. The private balcony gave us a nice view of the pool and the grounds, so enjoying a glass of wine at sunset was spectacular.

    « Great place to stay in Aptos »

    Great place to stay for a little R&R. Centrally located, beautiful pool and landscsape areas.. The hotel staff are very helpful and friendly. The beds are very comfortable and the restaurant food was delicious.

    « Safety experience »

    I would not recommend to anyone, due to the safety issue we experienced. The staff at desk did not use could judgement and I am grateful I wasn't in the bathroom and having that man enter, That would have been a scene no one would have liked.

    « Great stop, I would visit there again »

    Really nice hotel on a short trip to California. We stayed some not very nice places, this was the best by far.. Great setting and location. Room was nice, clean comfortable with a little patio. We had a drink and an appie in the bar (on the patio) and enjoyed the pond. Bed was comfortable and pillows were great. A little pricey for us but we have come to expect higher prices in vacation/resort type areas.

    « One of the better Best Westerns »

    I generally like the Best Western chain. Most of them are well kept up, and their not outrageously pricey. But some are nicer than others. This one - the Seacliff Inn in Aptos, CA - is especially nice. Pleasant, clean, very well kept up, nice gardens and walkway, a clean pool, etc. Has a few amenities I liked, such as a convenient plug-in to charge your cell at night right by your bed - using regular or USB plugs. The free breakfast is just okay - not fabulous - but it will do.

    « Beautiful Hotel »

    The grounds at this hotel were so nice. You can sit at the pool or go over the bridgr to the restaurant. The Koi pond was nice to look at while dining. The room was very nice and very nice decorated. The food was deilicious and the service was great! We enjoyed our stay very much! tWe definitely return to this hotel!

    « Close to beachs and the redwoods »

    If you are looking for a hotel in this area, it is a clean quiet place to stay. It has a great bar and restaurant with great food and the bar is a sports bar with many tv's. Niece pool area that is kept very clean. Great place for families.

    « Comfortable and pretty »

    My family and I loved this hotel. We will definitely be staying here again this year. It has everything we needed. Swimming pool for the kids, food for the family so we did not have to leave the premises and of course a bar/lounge for us adults! The continental breakfast was more than I expected!

    « Best Western, Seacliff Inn. Travel Friendly ! »

    Close to the beach, close to the freeway, close to shopping, comfortable bed, friendly staff, quick , quality breakfast and a Koi Pond to boot ! What am I missing ? You tell me ! I would recommend this stop along Highway one to all !

    « Average hotel »

    For our family this was just an average hotel. The rooms seem older and could use some freshening up. The breakfast in the morning was good and convenient. We stayed in the 300 building and did not like that the only way to get to the lobby was through the lounge/bar area. It was awkward in the evening when people were celebrating.

    5
    « Very Impressive »

    This is a very well run and friendly place to stay. The rooms are spacious and quiet. The staff are willingly helpful. There is a very good restaurant and bar attached. The included breakfast buffet has heaps of choices, all very good. It is very conveniently located near Highway 1 and the many attractions around the greater Santa Cruz area.

    « Always a Pleasure »

    First of all- I travel with what feels like a circus and sideshow - AKA; two kids under ten with epic numbers of boogie and skim boards, scooters, etc. as a single mom. I am pretty careful about not inflicting our menagerie on hotels/motels/inns unless they are really family friendly. The Seacliff Best Western- is awesome! The staff is great, the rooms are always clean, the pool area is great, the Koi pond always a hit, and wait for it... Affordable room service and a bar and restaurant on premises that has something for everyone. I ended up here a few years ago because our usual spot was booked - I had never stayed a Best Western- what a pleasant surprise. My kids love it. I love it. Friends in the area come and meet us for dinner and drinks either poolside (you can order at the pool too) or at the restaurant. Other patrons are great. Its close to the beach.... Unlike other places we frequent- I could see staying here sans kids for an adult get away... Its family friendly but not kid infested... OK, well, maybe the pool is before dinner... We have been guests in the winter and summer- and regardless of how busy it is the staff is courteous, prompt, and attentive.

    « My favorite tradition! »

    We have been going to the Seacliff Best Western for 25 years now! It started when our kids were little- close to the beach , Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk , shops, etc. The pool area was always clean and fun! The kids got older and it remains a great little get a way spot for us as a couple now. I hope to take grandchildren there as soon as I have some!

    « Much better than expectations! »

    This is perhaps one of the best Best Western hotels I have stayed in. I was expecting a small room on arrival however I was very pleasantly surprised to find a large suite. The room was very clean and comfortable and the bathroom had a good sized shower. The kitchen had a fridge and a small freezer. The grounds were well kept and very nice to walk around. The breakfast was good and there was a lot of choice on offer. The staff were friendly and helpful. We stayed here and travelled into Santa Cruz along Highway 1 which didn't take long at all. I would recommend this hotel to people visit or travelling through central California.

    « Very Comfy like a home away from home »

    They have everything...pool hot tub, great food and bar, happy hour specials or full restaurant. Perfect breakfast, the best BW breakfast of all the places I stay. Been staying here for almost 30 years...The grounds are nicely laid out and the beach is a short walk away

    « Good hotel on California Central Coast »

    Good hotel, well run, excellent location, great breakfast buffet, pleasant rooms. Not cheap, but this area is pricey so it's well within the typical price range. Close to the beach and a short drive to downtown Capitola and Aptos Village.

    « Good stay at this hotel »

    Good stay with very nice pool and jacuzzi but doubled booked into the same room so entered while another guest had already occupied room and staff asked them to leave and wanted us to then take the SAME room. We were given another room at our insistence. We asked for an upgrade to an interior room and were refused but given free cocktail coupons instead. Food is not very good for cocktail hour. sent back the calamari/fishy and cold.

    5
    « Great atmosphere! »

    This Hotel is above and beyond the typical hotel. An oasis in the desert. Our family spent sometime everyday out at the pool and on our patio. The breakfast was very good! Great place to kick back and enjoy the Hotel pool and surroundings!

    Beautiful hotel as always. Landscaping is tremendous, larger size suites, and a great staff. Spent the evening listening to a local band (Breeze Babes) play which made the night enjoyable and very relaxing.

    « Best little secret on the central coast »

    We always had our friends stay at the Seacliff Inn when they came to visit us in Aptos. Now that we have moved away, it is our first choice when we come back. Convenient location, reasonable price and enough amenities to make our short stay very comfortable. I called and booked the room directly with the hotel staff rather than on-line and was was easily accommodated with exactly what we needed - a ground floor handicapped room with 2 queen beds, ready for us when we arrived. The buffet breakfast included in the price of the room was an extra treat. I got to enjoy the early morning fog chatting with an old friend while my husband slept late. A most enjoyable trip.

    « Hotel stay with 83 year old Mother »

    Over all this is a nice property. Hotel is composed of 5 different 2 story units and there is no elevator to the 2nd floor so if you are traveling with someone that find stairs difficult or if you have heavy luggage to get to the room ask for a ground floor room. There restaurant / Bar is nice and the outdoor patio is great, but the food was not very good. The breakfast is reasonably good and there is plenty of it. Rooms have a balcony which over look a cetral court yard which is a nice feature

    « Very Nice Place to Stay »

    This is my 3rd stay at the Seacliff Inn in the past year. The hotel has a great location, the staff is great. The rooms are clean but are in need of updating. The grounds are beautiful and the pool is great.

    « This is the place to stay! »

    I love this hotel. Has great staff, very nice rooms, pool, restaurant, bar, weekend activities and is close proximity to beaches and sight seeing within Santa Cruz County. This place has been great for my family and I (3 year old and 6 year old kids), when I'm on business trips or a getaway with my significant other.

    « Good location and good venue »

    The hotel itself is lovely, the location is very good and lovely grounds. The front desk personnel were very helpful and pleasant. Our room was spacious, clean, quiet and the bed very comfortable; even the pull out bed in the living room. The complimentary breakfast was very complete and quite good. The only negative was the housekeeping staff which was quite sloppy in their daily cleaning.

    « High Hopes Dashed with this Beautiful Property »

    The Best Western Seacliff is a beautiful property and had read good reviews on TripAdvisor hence, the reason why we stayed. We had a dissatisfied stay because of wet carpets from a leak, odor in the room as well as a nasty hole in the wall with drywall on the floor.I reported to the front desk and was told maintenance had gone home. They offered another room, but moving our family at 10:30 PM was not in the cards. We also wanted to enjoy the pool with our son and found out that the pool heat was turned off by the time we went for a swim around 8:00 PM. There was also people drinking and partying it up at the hot tub, which made the pool experience even worse. The pool attendant was not too concern on what was going on. The positive is the onsite restaurant. We had dinner and breakfast and both were excellent. The common area grounds of this property is beautiful, however the room we stayed in needed some major work.

    « Great place »

    We arrived very late and in the dark. Check in was efficient and we were given drinks vouchers for the bar. The hotel is very nicely laid out in two storey blocks set around a large pool, which has plenty of sunbeds and seating. There is plenty of parking and free wifi. Our room was on first floor. Good size with two comfy queen beds, large fridge, coffee making facilities, TV, desk and chairs. The bathroom is small but perfectly adequate and the sink is in a vanity unit in a recess outside the bathroom in the main room. There was also a balcony over looking the pool with table and chairs. The gardens are pretty and there is a lovely pond and waterfall outside the restaurant. Breakfast is included and is self serve buffet and was absolutely fine with plenty of choice. The dining room did get busy but there was plenty of seating. The hotel is situated immediately off the 101 so some road noise can be heard at times when outside. We didnt hear it in our room but could from the balcony. It is also only 5 minutes from Seacliff State Beach. Overall a great stay and would recommend.

    « Odd smells & thin walls »

    Outdated property. The walls are thin and the property can be noisy. Our room was not attended to when we got back around 3pm after a long day. We called the front desk for clean towels and voiced our concerns. "Hmm" was the response . Breakfast was "free " and that's the best I can say about that. Centrally located for our needs however.

    « nice place to stay »

    We always stay here when we are in the area. The breakfast is very good and we love the koi pond/waterfall. Severino's has very good food. We had a cleanliness issue on our patio and it was quickly remedied.

    « Nobody knows what they are doing »

    This is the first time I have written a bad review. It is not critisism of the property but of the staff. We stayed last week for one night in a king suite room. We were traveling with our two grandsons who were visiting from Germany. The hotel was 90 percent families visiting Santa Cruz. We paid over 250. dollars for the one night, quite a bit for a Best Western. We got in bed at 8:00 pm and paid 18 dollars to rent a movie, my husband and grandson laughed quite a bit. The movie was over at 9:15, we turned off the lights and went to sleep. At 9:30 the phone rang it was the front desk saying somebody had complained that we were being noisy. I explained that we were sleeping and the noise had been minimal., nobody was out of bed. I suggested that before calling us they should have sent someone to the room to check the complaint instead of waking us up! The next morning my husband went to the front desk to let them know he was disappointed in the way they had handled it. The reception said they had no record of the phone call or complaint. They did not offer any apology. When we got home I realized we had left one of the boys asthma inhaler in the room Since they were visiting from Germany we had no way to replace it. The housekeeping department said they could send it fed ex for 20.00. I happily agreed to pay. The girl said it was guaranteed in two days. I called this afternoon, fourth day and they said that housekeeping was gone at 3:00pm and I could call tomorrow. I asked if someone could go to housekeeping and get the tracking info because I wanted to contact Fed Ex. She said no. I explained again, that it was asthma medicine for an 8 year old and it was very necessary. she told me to call tomorrow. What a bad taste this hotel has left in my mouth for Best Westerns!

    « Great spot to Stay »

    We had booked 2 night for a softball tournament that was going on in Watsonville. We were pleasantly surprised of how nice this Best Western was. Room was clean, Staff was very nice, nice size pool where you can order food and drinks. Breakfast in the morning was better than just the muffins and fruit. Good way to start off the morning. Close to freeway, shopping center etc. I would come stay here again for sure.

    « Hotel is a bit outdated »

    Hello! My family and I stayed at the BW Sea Cliff for a soccer tournament / birthday weekend. I will start with the NOT so enjoyable items during our stay. Upon check-in we had some cooler items to put away in the mini refrigerator but found old food spilled into refer and inside cabinet where it was located. There were other food stains as well. The bathroom is not very spacious just a simple sink w/no tissue and the bath products very basic. The shower had mold stains in the grout and the shower head was NOT pleasant shooting water out at a high hard rate and the adjustment only made the water so soft it could hardly rinse soap / sand out of your hair. There was also no microwave, the lamp on our bedside did no work and the USB charging station also did not work. I was pretty excited about the addition of the USB port/plugin until I realized it didn't work. The good was the size of the room fit myself and 3-children nicely. The decor and bed comfort was good. We had a patio that walked out directly to the pool entrance. The complimentary breakfast was very good and had great variety so you were not bored or hungry. The restaurant Severinos was delicious and great service. The patio seating at Severinos is definitely the best if you dine there with Koi ponds and a cute walkabout bridge. The pool and hot tub were also great.

    « Second year visit: Still Excellent! »

    Wow, love this place! The free breakfasts are really wonderful. Nice quiet rooms even with all the children playing in the pool. Nice quiet neighborhood, yet close to other attractions, like Santa Cruz, Carmel-by-the-Sea, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium - all within short driving distances. Staff was friendly and helpful. Got away from the inland heat. Take the short hike down to Seacliff beach; you won't be disappointed. Great views, an old pier, and a WWII era concrete ship deteriorating in in the ocean, covered with birds.

    This is a hidden gem of an inn in Aptos, CA near Santa Cruz and Monterey. The onsite restaurant is excellent and a breakfast is included. A pretty koi pond and out door seating with heaters makes every meal enjoyable even on foggy days. Good affordable, family hotel with a heated pool and hot tub. Friday night there was a band. Its very close to all the Santa Cruz attractions. We will be back.

Rooms include a hot, buffet breakfast in their restaurant and a $5 coupon towards a beverage in the lounge.

    « Pleased with 2 day stay »

    The hotel staff front desk was very accommodating and got us in the room early as we arrived at 11:00a. Room was perfect 2nd floor pool view. Room was clean and had all amenities we needed (a microwave would have been nice). There was a LARGE FAMILY REUNION going on during our stay so the pool area was noisy and crowded but we still enjoyed that time. Breakfast was very enjoyable and check out was simply a phone call to say Room ___ is leaving. Our daughter recommended this hotel and it was all she said it was.

    « Just OK »

    We booked the BW SeaCliff because of it's location and the 2 bedroom family suites. We were disappointed with both. The area is nice, but for some reason, there was a fog layer over Aptos for 3 of the 4 nights that was not in Capitola/Santa Cruz or Monterey. I can't figure that one out, but it was a depressing way to start the day. The nearby SeaCliff beach was clean and quiet, but had driftwood scattered all over the place. We booked a 2 bedroom family suite so that my 2 teenage daughters would have their own bathroom to shower and get ready. We we disappointed to find that the second bathroom only had a large soaker tub, and no shower, so that didn't help. We were originally given a room with dated and worn out furnishings that looked nothing like the pics on the website. After complaining to the front desk, they switched us to a much nicer, renovated unit. Why wasn't I given this room to start? We also had an issue with the iron. It was old, and spit out a dirty, discolored water that stained my wife's shirt. Front desk swapped it out with a new one, but again, why did I have to ask for this? Shouldn't we expect the best? You are BEST Western! Free breakfast was excellent, and saved us money every day. Well done. Beds were very comfortable, rooms were clean, and housekeeping was good. Hallways are worn and staircases could use a good cleaning. Check out was easy. Marianne's Ice Cream parlor down the street was fantastic. I probably would not return, as I feel better accommodations can be had a little farther down the road in Monterey.

    « Big suprise ! »

    First just to say, that we have stayed here before ans it is very nice. My comment has to do with what was given us to stay in. We rented a room that was a pool view, what we received was room 106 that was a view of a dirt hill no pool and next to the kitchen with it's garbage cans. When we checked in we asked if this was a pool view and was told yes. So I went back to the front deck and asked for the correct room and they gave us room 602. So make sure you get what you ask for.

    « Pleasantly Surprised »

    Spent just one night for a quick business trip to Aptos. Chose this place mainly due to price and proximity to my meeting. Although I was assigned an "accessible" room overlook parking lot, I was pleasantly surprised at the spaciousness of the room and updated furnishings and decor. A few weeks ago I stayed at the Fairmont Sonoma Inn and Spa's Jack London Suite (1,000 sq ft, 2 bathrooms etc.) and this Best Western standard room was far superior in regards to the decor and furnishings. Good job West Western (and shame on you Fairmont). Room also cam with a refrigerator, sink, coffee maker although no microwave oven. Fee included buffet breakfast in the morning. Nothing fancy, but food was hot and adequate (good pork sausage). Sign up for their FREE rewards program and you get 2 drink tickets that can be used in their bar or restaurant. Tap beer selection was surprisingly good too! I was able to use their pool, which also has a spa and was again, pleasantly surprised that they offered poolside service. Nice! I only have a few minor criticisms to share. 1) I was not told that I was being placed in an "accessible room" and 2) rooms are not well insulated from noise. I should have known when I saw the earplugs in the bathroom toiletry kit. Luckily, there was only one other guest in my wing, so noise was not really an issue. Had it been a "full house", it may have been a big issue. An added plus is their closeness to Sea Cliff State beach, about 1/2 mile away. A great place to go for a run (which I did). Lastly, this is a great place for families!

    « Nice place close to Santa Cruz »

    Good location - away from the crazy boardwalk and close to a nice state beach. Very attractive property. All the staff we interacted with were very pleasant. Just a short drive to downtown Santa Cruz, and only a short walk to shopping, coffee, and small eateries.

    « Relaxing Stay at Sea Cliff »

    While the hotel is centrally located in Aptos it feels secluded and is quite quiet. It is in walkable distance to stores and restaurants. Rio del Mar beach is best accessed by bike or car. I reserved a room with a king bed. I had a private patio which faced a parking lot that was obscured by a small bank planted with agapanthus- which were in bloom. The room was clean and spacious. I lucked out- Tuesday night Serevino's, BW restaurant has live music at 6pm and happy hour from 3-6. The staff was friendly and accommodating. I was granted a late check-out, and used the time to soak in the hot tub and swim in the pool. My new favorite place to stay in the S.C. area.

    « trip in june 2016 »

    I do not have any comments. the pool was to small the food was good the music was not good service was adequate. so work on the check in as I needed to go through best Western to book my stay at the front desk. and they want 50.00 dollars more to do it. It would have been a lot easier to book straight to the front desk to book it. do not do that as they do not want to bother to do the booking with the best western you may stayed before and would stay again.

    25 members of our family spent a long weekend in Seacliff Inn. We could all meet in the morning at the great breakfast buffet and plan our day's activities, some of them at the Inn (hanging out at the pool, for example) and some of them at nearby beaches or parks. Everyone was happy with this choice of reunion venue.

    « Good Option for the Price »

    My family and I stayed at this Best Western recently for 3 nights while exploring Monterey and Santa Cruz. We chose this hotel since it had a good AAA discount and it was between the two cities (though closer to Santa Cruz). Many motels in the same price range in the area are run down or in unsafe areas, but this Best Western was very nice and peaceful. The grounds were more beautiful than any other Best Western we've stayed in. The free breakfast also offered a good variety. There were only 2 downsides to this hotel--the carpets were not very clean (my kids' feet were filthy after running around barefoot) and the walls were somewhat thin, though they provided a pair of very good quality earplugs.

    « Clean, quiet, with a nice pool »

    Even though it was graduation weekend for so many schools in the Santa Cruz area and hotels were full of students, parents, and friends, the Best Western Seacliff Inn did a great job of moving people in and out and keeping the noise to a minimum. At 10pm, as guests were still having fun in the pool, staff obviously told swimmers that pool time was over and that it was quiet time. The hotel was clean and the bed fresh and perfect. Good shower with plenty of power, and good wifi. Breakfast was a slight step up from typical on-the-road breakfasts with hot foods. There is a terrific pool with lots of towels, and you can actually order food and drinks poolside by phone and they will be delivered to you! East to find, good parking, Safeway nearby, and close to Santa Cruz. (Avoid the freeway as much as possible around rush hour. You won't believe the traffic.)

    « Small room, high price, great breakfast »

    We stayed at this Best Western for a Fathers Day weekend getaway with our extended family. We had a room with a king bed that was somewhat small by today's standards. And the weekend price seemed very high for the quality of the room and location of the hotel, about $270 per night. This hotel can also be noisy at night, from the pool, from the bar, from the rooms upstairs and down the hall. Highlight of the stay: great breakfast with lots of hot and cold choices.

    The Best Western Seacliff Inn is popular with the locals as well as travelers. There were a couple of weddings taking place during our stay and local groups hold their meetings there. Our room was modern and very comfortable. The ground floor rooms have a small patio for sitting outside. Some patios face the pool and others face a parking lot. This is a family friendly place, so the pool can get a bit noisy at times. A very nice breakfast buffet is included. The restaurant/Bar has live music on the weekends. We highly recommend the Seacliff Inn when visiting the Santa Cruz area.

    « Good for family and near beach »

    Good motel, nicely appointed, nice pool for family. Close to Seacliff State Beach. Didn't feel as secure and safe as some motels because the rooms have corridors to the outside but neighborhood seems safe. Little noisy. Hearing the tv from the room next door late at night. Stayed on weekend with a wedding going on so was awakened by partiers after midnight who then put on the tv loudly. included Breakfast is real eggs with spinach scrambled in. Nice touch. Good coffee, and nice selection at breakfast. Staff clears your table. Nice to eat in the dining room. Overall quality is very good, which it should be a $200/night for 2 queen room. Rooms are spacious as well and beds are comfortable. Would stay there again.

    This is a beautiful place to stay, and the location is excellent. There are shops and places to eat within walking distance and a fascinating State beach is a short stroll away. Grounds are beautiful and the pool is lovely. The included breakfast is one of the best we've experienced. There is a bar with music in the evening. so if you want quiet, ask for a room in building 4 or 5 which are away from the bar. Two caveats: On summer weekends the pool is filled with children. Buildings are charming but elderly and they are not soundproof. That can be a real problem if you have noisy neighbors.

    « Older Property Near a Beach »

    Poorly disguised old hotel with very few amenities, except a pool. Breakfast was average with crowded seating. Location is adjacent to a restaurant, Severino's, which provides an outdoor patio, and lots of noise. It should be noted that there is a $50 up charge for weekend nights, starting on Friday, which significantly impacts the cost of your total stay. We booked there for four nights, and if we had known the area better, we would have moved to another property.

    « Location of room »

    If you are given a parking lot room in building 100 or 200 you face the freeway. Noise from the road starts around 4 am. When checking in we requested a room near other parties in building 500 or 600 and no comment was even given to us by the front desk staff. I feel like they just gave us the worst room possible for making a reservation over 8 months ago.

    There are motion sensors in the rooms that shut off the AC when you fall asleep. Then the room temp rises and you wake up too warm. Throwing a pillow in the air a few times restarts the AC so you can fall back asleep and repeat over and over all night long. VERY UNCOMFORTABLE NIGHT !!

Seating was in the restaurant and there was plenty of it. They have a nice courtyard you can walk to. Patios are a nice touch, but ours faced the busy highway so we didn't use it.

    « Needs some upkeep or remodel »

    I have stayed here about 10 times. The pool area is kept up and wonderful, but the rooms need help. I know it's an expensive neighborhood, but this place is a poor value now that the rooms are kinda run down. ESPECIALLY after they tack on the resort fee. The thin walls have little privacy, and nighttime noises can be a problem. I overheard too much, and heard other guests had issues too. The beds are nice, but the carpeted restroom area is gross, put tile in! The shower tile is dated, and the miniature toilet area is a pain. The energy saving light switches are annoying. I couldn't find out why the bed lamp would not turn on! Plugged in, check. Light bulb installed, check. Switch tried in multiple positions and other lamp switches hunted for... Oh! A motion sending wall switch controls the bed lamp! Lame and cumbersome.

    I had a great experience with the front desk. They were very helpful. The room was clean. Everyone was courteous when I thought our nightstand light bulb was out. The switch was on the wall and it was not turned on Every one was prompt in my service call. The lounge had a wedding party. The music was too loud for our conversation.

    « Beautiful Location »

    I would like to review the hotel as a whole and not on just the most recent trip we took, since we've stayed here a few times. They have rooms for every budget and are very clean and comfortable. The tubs are decently sized, especially the in room Jacuzzi tubs (great for couples). They do also have a large heated pool and outdoor jaccuzzi. They have a beautiful koi pond and little bridge near the lounge and restaurant, a very nice touch. Just a short walk away there is a beach and some quaint places to eat. It is also just a few miles away from the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and other fun activities. We ordered room service on a Saturday night and it took less than 20 minutes to get there, that was amazing and the food was absolutely delicious. This last trip we had some issues with them placing a 50.00 incidental fee on our card without notification, then they also charged us twice for the room. It did get refunded 2 days later. Just a heads up, make sure the front desk is paying attention when you check in or out.

Very important to have all things in place for such an important trip - Seacliff offered comfort on every level.

    This is the first time staying at Best Western Hotel and will probably be my last. First impressions count and when I as assigned room 111 it was facing highway 101. The car and roadway noise did not provide for a good nights sleep. I was very disappointed.

    « Pros and Cons »

    Pros: Great location, pretty grounds, great amenities and well appointed rooms. Cons: paper thin walls, noisy and rowdy guests indoors and outdoors, poor wifi, weak showers, no elevators. I spent one night at the Seacliff in order to attend a wedding nearby. While the rooms were well stocked and in clean and new condition, I would not stay here again. A clear warning sign is that all rooms are supplied with earplugs. The first room I was given was on the second floor and there was no elevator. That didn't bother me but I was a tad worried as it also was located right next to the restaurant and bar. At 8 o'clock loud live music started playing and I was told it would go on until midnight. I requested a room in a quieter building and was immediately switched to a building further away. A worker brought me a new key to my room right away. Kudos for that. Unfortunately the second room wasn't much better. This time I was placed near the swimming pool where young children were running, shouting and playing unsupervised. Well the ear plugs solved that problem. I had just settled into my comfy dark and quieter room to sleep at 11 o'clock and was hopeful I could sleep through the rest of the night. Unfortunately I was awakened at 12:30 my drunken guests in the hall and next door. Given that the walls are super thin, I could hear every word that was said let alone shouted. Luckily the drunk man left and the drunk lady fell asleep so I could too. The next morning I went down to have what turned out to be a decent breakfast. I checked out and spend the rest of the morning at the beach instead of at the hotel until normal checkout time. Best decision I ever made. Word to the wise: Internet Wi-Fi signal is weak. Water strength in the shower is weak as well. Hot and cold water or inconsistent. It's a shame that the hotel was not better constructed to provide for sound buffering. That is the number one reason I recommend not staying at the Seacliff Inn.

    « Beautiful grounds - room, well.... »

    I attended a meeting at this hotel. The grounds are very nice and have more of an apartment feel than a hotel. There is a restaurant and bar that are adequate. My only complaint is the room. The bed was not comfortable and the door had a large gap around it - enough you could see through. It was hard to control the temperature of the room during the night. They could use a decor refresh. It was a direct bill so I cannot speak to the room rate to value.

    « Pretty grounds but very thin walls »

    We stayed for two nights. The grounds are pretty, the rooms are small but clean. The breakfast was decent and our one meal in the restaurant was pretty good too. When we asked for extra pillows and for the sink drain to be cleared, our requests were handled right away. I liked everything about this property except that we could hear entire conversations through the front sliding window and the wall between us and the next room. The folks outside and next door were very loud until midnight, which was not pleasant at all. I would only stay there again if we could stay in a room that has no one next door.

    « Mediocre, at best. »

    The room is standard, nothing great, and no big issues. The operations of the hotel are very sub-standard. The included breakfast is so sad that I ate it only once, then stocked up on supplies in my room. The included breakfast does not include hot tea, I was informed. The eggs were a hard mess. Luckily, my room had a refrigerator, so I ate breakfast in the room for the rest of the week. I was presented with 2 drink coupons, worth 5 dollars each. The first night I ordered a glass of wine, I think it was listed at $14, so I paid nine. It was undrinkable. I did not go back to use the second coupon. Housekeeping took my bath towels without replacing them one day, which made for an interesting shower as I had not realized that I was without towels. The hotel keys became deactivated, both of them, a day prior to my checkout. When I went to get the second one replaced, after 10 p.m. at night, the attendant at the front desk was on the phone, laughing and telling jokes with someone for quite some time, while I stood in front of her, waiting, tired and very ready to gain access to my room again. Basically, the rooms are OK, and the place is poorly run, and the staff is poorly trained.

    I requested an early check in. They were unable to accommodate so we went to the boardwalk. We ended up checking in rather late at night and were starving. Decided to go to the restaurant at the hotel. Since it was getting close to closing time for them, the staff appeared bothered that we were wanting to eat and get a table. The hotel rooms are small and bathroom area tiny. No vending machines besides for a soda machine. Patio faced a dumpster so we could not use. We departed on Easter morning, they cancelled the full breakfast and put together some sort of continental breakfast which was a complete mess and unorganized. Total Chaos.

    Although this hotel is usually on top of things was disappointed with this visit. Wasn't told until check-in that the pool/hot but was not available.

    « Pretty good, for the only game in town »

    Not much to choose from in Aptos, so take it or leave it. We booked it specifically for the pool and hot tub and both were unexpectedly under maintenance and out of order our whole stay. No other property within 10 miles has one, so we reluctantly stayed. Not bad. $150 a night ain't cheap, but for walking distance (10 minute walk down hill, brutal climb back up!) to the beach/water, it's pretty good. Excellent bed and for a low-flow shower, super hot and decent.

    I have stayed here many times and it meets all my basic requirements - safe, clean and comfy. It's a large property with lots of room choices. The staff is more than helpful and very friendly. It is very close to the ocean which makes it a bit more pricey. There is a restaurant and lounge on site - convenient but sometimes it means there are loud voices outside late at night. Rooms on the first level have interior entry and patios.They have good rates for kids and the rooms have refrigerators and microwaves on request. It would be nice to have a no breakfast option as the food is just so-so. Restaurant food is just OK but there are plenty of places to eat close by.

    When I travel alone I am looking for lodging that is clean and safe - it is also nice if there is food available nearby. I have stayed at the Seacliff many times and it meets my basic qualifications. It is very close to the ocean which makes it more expensive. But it is a great place to stay. My only negative is that there is a lounge/bar as part of the property and this sometimes means loud voices late into the night.

    « Convenience with character »

    This is my go-to hotel when traveling for work in the Monterrey Bay area. It feels more like a home than a hotel. I love the breakfast buffet - much better than most hotel breakfasts. It is an easy jog or reasonable walk down to the beach, which I enjoy for morning or evening exercise, and the fitness room is adequate if all I have time for is a quick workout. The pool and landscaping are lovely, though I've never actually taken a dip!

    « Old Hotel in Dire need of Renovation = Unsafe? »

    The Seacliff is an old and tired hotel dire need of an upgrade. Like many other places in Santa Cruz county, they seem to really want to hold on to the late 70's / early 80's. I've stayed here numerous times for business, because there are not many reasonably priced hotels to choose from in this area. Where to start. It's Motel-esque in that you drive to your room and park right outside the building. The Rooms are old and slightly musty. Walls are paper thin. If you are on the ground floor than your room has a large paper thin sliding glass door that overlooks the pool. If you don't keep the drapes closed at all times passers by can just look right in. If you in the first building near the bar the noise may be bothersome on nights they have a band (Friday). The bathroom floor tile is straight out of the 70's and the carpet is worn and faded. Bathroom fixtures were old and worn. The HVAC had to be 20 years old and sounded like a freight train every time it revved up. The outdated keycard door locks do not work. Had a very hard time getting into my room every time, even tried different key cards. Locking the door was also difficult. Slight redeeming quality, I did think the bed was actually comfortable (might have been because I was really tired) To make matters worse, co-workers of mine had their room broken into and their bags stolen during the day while we were in a meeting offsite. The Hotel staff did not seem to care and acted like it happens all the time. (Inside Job?) Police had a similar response. At night (especially on a Friday) the place seemed to attract a questionable crowd which put me a little on edge and made me feel a little unsafe. Unfortunately, I Have to stay here again for business next month. I hope this time won't be as bad but I don't have high hopes.

    Family reunion was great at this hotel. The climate, restaurants, pool, bar/lounge lent itself for a wonderful time visiting all day and night long. The overall staff were great, being helpful, friendly, courteous and even joined in on our fun. Plan on coming back! !

    « Love this hotel, but the walls are thin »

    Love this hotel for the ease of the location, reasonable price, amazing complimentary breakfast , and the hotel aesthetics. The only downside is that the walls are very thin, which makes it hard to sleep.

    « Consistent and wonderful! »

    The Best Western Seacliff Inn never fails to meet our expectations. Living nearby the hotel, we still prefer to stay here rather than the surrounding areas. The pool is great and clean and the rooms are perfect for our family. We requested a pool side ground level room and the staff was willing to accomodate us. The breakfast in the morning is definitely one of the best in the Best Western family - lots of different items to choose from - hot or cold. And the beds are beyond comfy! Great nights sleep.

    « Above Par »

    Stayed here in the off-season at a relatively reasonable rate. The property is not particularly close to the beach, it really isn't that far?it's about a 20 minute walk?but it is convenient enough to get to Seacliff State Park and the shops on Soquel Rd. Highway 1 is convenient, but also makes things less pedestrian friendly and makes noise 24/7. Staff was very helpful, rooms were spacious, clean and quiet, and I was able to get work done with the wireless and space provided. Outdoor hot tub was a plus.

    « Excellent value (but need blankets!) »

    Beds comfy & clean. Room clean & very quiet (back of complex, 2nd floor). Excellent breakfast in very nice setting including outdoor tables near heaters. Food better than many "included" breakfasts. Our only complaint was beds had only paper-thin blanket. This is typical in lower end hotels & drives me crazy. We shivered until heat kicked in, but heat came w/unpleasant smell and no one wants to leave it on all night. Why do hotels always fail to provide blankets?

    What a wonderful place to stay the facility is clean and the staff are so helpful. They are the greatest hotel in the area and so close to the beach. We had a wonderful dinner with Salmon and Rack of Lamb. We went to the beach and sea glass hunted for hours and came back to a warm welcome at the front desk and a great meal for lunch. They have a happy hour after 3pm and it was fantastic, great deals on drinks and food. Veronica and Ellen sure know how to help a customer, they have the best customer service at the front desk. Kayla in the restaurant is great too, she always is nice and has a great attitude.

    « Comfortable, convenient motel »

    We enjoyed our 1-night Valentine Day getaway at this motel. While it's not on the beach, it's a few minute drive to Seacliff beach. The staff was great, room was clean and comfortable, and restaurant was great. There's a nice outdoor patio option for dining. Free breakfast was a bit better than average. Families seem to enjoy the heated pool. Only downside is it was a bit noisy. Could hear kids playing in the pool until closing time (10pm) and some traffic noise. Next time, I might ask for a room farther from the freeway. Other than that, this is a good value for that area.

    « Fantastic Economy Hotel! »

    We spent 3 night in this great place. It was clean and very spacious. Our room and living room were separated by a door - could make for very easy planning if you are a parent. We had a mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and separate sink from the bathroom. They even offered extra little amenities like a makeup remover cloth and stitch kit (was totally not expecting that)! Severino's is wonderful, however, could be a bit loud on the weekends. We were okay with it, but we could see if others could get annoyed. The location was prime as well as the price. Breakfast was pretty standard - loved the oatmeal and waffles! Overall, we were VERY happy with our stay here and would definitely come back.

    « Good Average Hotel with Some Issues »

    This is a good option if staying in the Santa Cruz, CA area. Just off the freeway in the village of Aptos, the location is quiet and the property has a nice pool area. An onsite restaurant and bar are convenient although there are other good eating options in the village, like Burger. I originally booked a non-pool view room to lower the price but the room looked out to the parking lot and directly into the cars' front grills. Not too appealing so transferred to a pool view room which was better and about $20 per night more expensive. The A/C unit in the room was very noisy and since it was a cold night I had the choice of not sleeping or freezing. I chose the latter. There were no extra blankets available in the room. A full breakfast was included and was quite good. Front desk was accommodating in finding me an appropriate room. I was expecting a bit more for $136 per night in January. However will not rule out a future stay.

    « Great location, close to state park »

    I checked in to the hotel and my room was not ready. Instead they gave me a handicapped room that was large and located on the second floor. I do not need handicapped, but thought it would be ok. Not. There was an adjoining room and I could hear the TV blaring through the door at 3 in the afternoon. I was then moved to a smaller room on the bottom floor that was dark and dank. Finally that night I was moved to a room on the top floor that was light and I felt, safer. There are no elevators, so I lugged my suitcase up and down the stairs several times. Because I am a frequent traveler at Best Western I received two free drink coupons. The location is next to the highway so it was close to work.

    « Needs Updating »

    This hotel is a combination of buildings that really need updating. We stayed in an accessible room that was quite large, but not really close to the breakfast area or main lobby. The room was very clean but shabby, with low windows that looked out into a parking lot. It was dark and dreary, somewhat depressing to stay in, but accessible rooms are limited in availability. Breakfast was okay, nothing special.

    « Older but Very Nice »

    This hotel is broken down into several separate buildings, each building has an entrance door in the middle and at each end. The buildings are two story, stairs are made from stone and the hallway carpet looks faded. We stayed in building 5, second floor in a 2 bedroom room with a balcony. The room was very clean, recently remodeled, and up to date. The grounds, lobby, and restaurant are all clean. The staff is friendly, attentive, and professional. The hotel is self is across the street from a Safeway Grocery store, there are a few restaurants in the area. Location wise, you can get to downtown Santa Cruz or the Boardwalk in about 20 minutes, Ocean front in Capitola in about 10 minutes, and there is a state beach less than 3 minutes away. I would recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in the area for a reduced rate, the value I paid for this room was very good..

    This is becoming one of my favorite places to stay while in the Santa Cruz area. It is always affordable, the location convenient, and the setting and grounds is very pleasing. You can't beat the free breakfast buffet in the nice buffet room looking out onto the koi pond and waterfall! Barring the young woman at the check-in desk who took 20 minutes to check in two rooms, the staff is very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are nothing luxurious, but they are clean and nicely appointed.

    Staff misquoted price when the reservation was made and then had attitude when questioned about the increase in cost at check in.

    What a perfect hotel to stay for a couple of nights, close to the beach and a wonderful place to dance to jazz or have a great dinner. The hotel is minutes from the beaches and we started a new hobby Sea glass hunting on the beach. We found whale bone fossils that are millions of years old and also we were able to find a lot of colorful sea glass that was softened by the churning of the ocean. Beautiful weather and a wonderful view of the beaches. You must try out New Brighton Beach. Talk to Grace or Veronica at the front desk of this Best Western hotel at Seacliff.

    I love staying at Best Westerns! Always consistent :) Friendly staff, great food, and awesome pool - not to mention the complimentary breakfast in the morning - this Best Western has one of the best spreads I've experienced, probably due to the Sanderlings restaurant they have on site. Our kids love the pool and we love it too because its a great size to accommodate a busy weekend at the hotel. you can enjoy their great room service menu, hotel restaurant or eat at the local restaurants minutes away. All the rooms are great but try to request a ground level room facing the pool - makes it that much easier to get to the pool :)

    I stayed here for 5 days for business purposes and can recommend the hotel. It's a complex of a few buildings around a pool and koi-pond. Parking is available all around the complex next to each building. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Although quiet, you could hear the nearby highway. Also the heater is rather noisy. Breakfast is included and there is a a good selection. Only negative is that you need to go outside to reach the restaurant. The restaurant itself is very popular with the locals and there is live music on weekends. The food is good and prices reasonable.

    « December Trip »

    Hotel was great other than bar closed early on Sunday and our room was located at the end of an extremely busy & noisy breezeway. Might be nice to alert people to this when they choose a non-pool view room. I would have paid extra for the pool view to avoid the noise next time. Walls were a little thin or perhaps are neighbors were just very loud? Not the hotels fault though.

    I stayed at this hotel during a business trip. The hotel is made up of several different buildings with either a view of the interior pool and landscaping or the parking lot. There is a free breakfast buffet each morning the restaurant. It was above average when compared to other hotels offering free breakfast. There was a sign that read "due to the egg shortage we can only offer hardboiled eggs". That was weird and made no sense. Every night there were lots of people in the restaurant/ bar. It offers good food with a fairly large menu. Most nights the local elderly population take over the bar and dance to the live music. It's kind of fun to watch. You kind of think they escaped from the retirement home. Besides the staff, I was the youngest person in there one night. The gym is small, but suits a minimum workout. The pool is good for swimming laps and the hot tub is nice to relax in at night. The rooms are clean and quiet. I would stay there again.

    Flew from Miami to San Jose for a wedding in Aptos, Ca. We stayed at the Seacliff Inn. We enjoyed our stay. The hotel was clean and quiet, and very close to the beach. They had a very nice breakfast buffet. After the rehearsal dinner, which was off site, we returned to the hotel and stopped in the bar for a drink and was pleasantly surprised to find a live band playing. The next day after the wedding, they also had the after party in the hotel bar as well with another live band. All in all, a nice little get away. Would definitely stay there again.

    « I'd give a 3.5 rating if possible »

    We took our granddaughter to a soccer tournament in Aptos and booked this room for a Saturday night about 3 weeks prior to our arrival. The room felt shop worn, the mattress was pretty soft, and the walls were fairly thin. In our opinion, it was overpriced at $252.00. The room had obviously been cleaned a short time before we checked in because it smelled like a doctor's office and we had to open the sliding door right away for the smell to dissipate. However, we did appreciate being able to get into our room since we were technically an hour early for check-in. On the plus side, we ate in the restaurant Saturday night and the food was excellent. The breakfast buffet the following morning was also good. The hotel is located right off of a freeway off-ramp in a very convenient location. I would rate it a 3.5 if I could.
