Corona, California
Reviewed 20 July 2016

We stayed here one night. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Close to a shopping center and lots of restaurants. There is a breakfast room with good options to start your morning. Would stay here again.

Castro Valley, California
Reviewed 19 July 2016

Mission Inn is a basic motel that is both clean and well maintained. The front desk and housekeeping employees were very good, and took excellent care of us. On the plus side: Free WiFi and guest desktop in the lobby, plenty of free parking, a hot tub (no pool), and complimentary breakfast. Good restaurants and grocery shopping within walking distance....

The Mission Inn was comfy and quiet, and the staff were all really nice, friendly, and helpful. I ended up never trying the hot tub, just because the room was so cozy that I caught up on my sleep instead. Very convenient walking distance to shops, restaurants, and UC Santa Cruz.

My boyfriend and I stayed two nights here and it was great! Santa Cruz doesn't offer much in the hotel department so finding this Inn was a nice surprise. Our bed was so comfy and I wish I could've spent my stay just catching up on much needed sleep. Our bathroom had a jetted tub which was also a plus...

We stayed there because most hotels were booked and the hotel rates were very high due to an event that was happening during the weekend we visited. The staff were very friendly. The area is a short drive from a central location. Our room came with 2 queen beds and the room was large and clean. They provide free breakfast,...

My son recently moved to Santa Cruz from San Jose, so when we went to visit we booked two nights at the Mission Inn.

Dear Rodney, I am so sorry to hear your stay with us was not satisfactory. You stayed in one of our newly renovated rooms and we've had great feedback about the renovations from our guests. You are right, the new rooms do not have toilet paper holders, but have a space on our shelving right below the granite countertop. We...

I have a weekend lay over and needed a place to stay and park a truck and trailer and they don't have truck parking but made room for me! The staff is super friendly and helpful and the room is great, definitely would suggest this place to anyone.

Easy to get to, friendly staff and nicely appointed accomodations. We had a king room and it was very clean and comfortable. The grounds are beautifully kept and the breakfast, although Continental, has hard boiled eggs and a range of baked goods,cereal and fruit so it can fill you up. We would stay there again.
