The room I had was one of the single storey units directly on the car park. The room was huge with lovely personal touches and some great local art! The bed was comfortable with good quality bedding and a beautiful quilt. The separate bathroom was very clean and practical. There was a microwave, fridge, coffee maker and hair dryer in... More

We had a lovely surprise when we arrived here. The rooms are all set within white weather boarded chalets which are prettily decorated with large comfortable beds. Our room had its own bathroom with an excellent shower; some rooms have shared bathrooms. It was worthwhile getting our own complete with great toiletries including make up removing wipes. We were greeted... More

Our contact with Juanita the manager was great from the initial call to her call back to us a few days before our arrival to verify all the details. The room she suggested is great. The location is nice for not being in the hustle and bustle but a nice walk to both beach and Harbor. It is older but... More

We couldn't even stay here after speaking with the owner. She was extremely rude and argumentative while we were booking a room for our honeymoon. We passed on this disgusting hotel and would never consider saying here after our initial experience.

We were in Santa Cruz for our daughter's wedding and needed a place that would accommodate several family members. We were referred to Harbor Inn by our friends because it's affordable and delightful. Our needs were simple so this hotel fit just right. The property is not new but it is kept up very nicely.

Only place I will stay @ in Santa Cruz. Cannot beat the location, away from all the crazy Ocean St. chaos. Only thing that could make it perfect would be if they had some memory foam toppers for the mattress :)

We rounded off our five week US driving trip with five nights at the Harbor Inn. Our room was spacious and very comfortable with a very well-appointed bathroom. It was great to park the car here and be able to walk to most places. The beach is a short stroll away, the Boardwalk is an enjoyable twenty minute walk, Downtown... More

The Harbor Inn is conveniently located just a few blocks from the beach, a short walk to restuarants, and a short drive to everything else Santa Cruz has to offer. The rooms are large, bright, and comfortable. The units include a micro-wave and a small fridge. The rates are far better than most local hotels. The unit we stayed in... More

This clean and quiet inn has Victorian architecture in a garden setting, antique furniture, family friendly cable TV stations, plus fridge, microwave, and coffee makers in every room. They offer separate buildings to fit large families with children, singles, or couples -- including some 2-story suites and RV's at the back. I gave it 5 stars despite there being no... More
