The Mission Inn was very comfortable. The rooms were nice, clean, stocked with expected amenities. We appreciated having a refrigerator and mircrowave to use. The staff were exceptionally courteous and helpful. The location was convenient and our room near the back of the inn was very quiet. My husband is disabled and the room we had roomy walkways and an...

The beds were comfortable and the room was spacious. The hotel was only a 10 minute walk from West Cliff Drive, which has a beautiful path to walk along the waterfront. The showers were hot and powerful. The wifi was fast. The breakfast was good. Everything felt very clean. The sauna was an unexpected perk. The hot tub was nice...

Closest lodging to UC Santa Cruz. Really nice rooms and people. Short walks to restaurants and Safeway along Mission Ave. We walked to downtown Santa Cruz from the hotel and the boardwalk, very pleasant trip.

We have been on a two week road trip around California and this is the best place we've found in terms of value for money so far. Rooms were large, clean and had decent coffee facilities! Breakfast was more varied than other places with bagels, fruit, oatmeal and muffins. The chap on reception was really accommodating and friendly. Hot tub...

This hotel is a pretty standard hotel. It's an older hotel that was updated at some point. The interior isn't bad and it seems pretty clean. It is nicely located close to UCSC and many shops and restaurants on the west side of Santa Cruz. Staff is very dedicated and helpful. There is a sauna and hot tub that many...

This is a wonderful motel. I was pleasantly surprised by the experience. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel room was immaculate. I mean, they are very clean, right down to the light switches not to mention well appointed. If you travel for business like I do, you notice or appreciate certain things, a clean room and comfortable...

After an enjoyable and busy day in the Santa Cruz area, we enjoyed our stay here, for one night only. It was a very well maintained property. It would have to be, because I was a former maintenance specialist. In rating a hotel property, the two deciding factors for a room are the bed/mattress, and the overall bathroom, shower and...

Very well maintained property - convenient parking- nice continental breakfast. My only problem with the rooms is that the light comes in from the top and bottom of curtains. I will just need to bring something with me next time to cover my eyes.

The service was fantastic, and the location very convenient - it was only a 10 minute walk to the bus stop, and a 20 minute walk to the beach promenade. The room was very comfortable and there was breakfast available every morning. The wifi in the room was very good.

The unthinkable happened -- my girlfriend and I both thought the bed was very comfortable. That has never happened before. In addition, the room appears to have been refurbished recently with new carpet, paint, shower curtain, etc. The included breakfast was good, including 4 kinds of cold cereal, biscuits and gravy, yogurt, fresh fruit (cut and whole), juice, and coffee....

Thank you so much for taking the time to review Mission Inn. Your feedback is always welcome in improving our service and property. I feel like we hit a home run with our beds - high end Simmons mattresses replaced less than a year ago. I am so glad to hear you had a comfortable night, and invite you to...
