This is a average hotel, but the rooms, in general, are clean and the breakfast is good to very good in comparison to other similar hotels. I was dissatisfied with the quality of the bed and couch in the room for the price I paid (roughly $140 a night). The bed/furniture quality and cleanliness seemed comparable to a motel 6....

We were looking for a place to stay during a visit to the Bay Area. As it was Super Bowl week (!) the prices in and around the Bay area were jacked up! $250 to $350 a night was seen when we searched for a room online. Best Western Scotts Valley was 20 miles or so over Hwy 17and felt...

Great hotel with friendly staff. Reasonable prices and a great location. I don't bother looking elsewhere. They are slowing upgrading the hotel to make it better. That means some of the rooms don't have the newest amenities yet. The parking is a little tight, but that is common for the area. Just make sure to book at least a couple...

Whenever I am in Santa Cruz I always stay at the Scotts Valley Best Western. This is a nice, quiet hotel with all the amenities you need. I appreciate their attention to detail in making my stay comfortable.

Was happy to find this clean, well-appointed hotel at such a reasonable price. Just a very few minutes' drive and you're out of the congestion and noise of Santa Cruz. Amenities were fine, and the location is lovely. The parking lot, however, is TINY. Definitely not enough spaces for the capacity of the hotel, and the spaces are so narrow...

The room was large and comfortable. Very nice. Parking is a problem. The spaces are narrow and short so when there are a lot of full size trucks in the lot it gets kind of crazy. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

The parking lot is very small and tight. Definitely AVOID it if you have a wide or large or longish vehicle of any kind; definitely DO NOT attempt a UHaul, boat or RV. Hotel is very convenient to HWY 17/880 and not too far to Santa Cruz and the beach, but you have to drive over a curvy hill road...

Asked for a quiet upper floor room & was given one directly over the pool/spa after being told in the cold weather no one would be swimming. But a family was in the spa splashing, yelling, laughing until after 9:30PM; all the noise was clearly & loudly audible in my quarters. The frig was on a low level in the...

Room was comfortable and good sized TV. While shower/toilet room had towel bars, I thought it odd that the large sink area had none. In fact, there were no hooks or anything to hang towels or anything else. Room had large closet with shelves along with frig.
