Very nice hotel, but the staff really makes it special! Very friendly staff! It's in a very good location to walk just about anywhere. Parking is underground and very safe. Hard to beat this place! Would go back again!

This is a nice newer property that is centrally located. It is about 10 mins from Santa Cruz and 10 mins from harbor and 10 mins from beach. Nice little pool and hot tub. Solid rooms with extra space and always nice for Breakfast to come with the room. Great place to stay with kids.

Our family stayed here one night during a family vacation. It is everything you would expect from a good, newer Fairfield location: modern design, clean, helpful staff, decent breakfast buffet. It was a little bit from Santa Cruz, but not really a far drive.
