Best Hotel in Santa Cruz for the money. Great location. Close to beach and stores. Good food and cocktails. Better than average breakfast buffet to get your day started. Very cool outside patio and 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... More

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... More

We were 10 people for dinner and everyone had a good time with plenty of room. Everyone enjoyed their dinner choice - pork, hamburgers, fish,etc. The service was excellent. The wide variety of food may be ordinary but it is all good, nicely prepared and expertly served.

I have stayed in three other BW in Northern CA over the past 3 months and I have to say the BW in Aptos is head and sholders above the others I stayed in. The grounds look and feel more like an upscale hotel. The court yard, pool and kio pond is beautiful. The room was clean and comfortable.
