Hotel was very clean with comfortable king bed. Within walking distance to restaurants and beach. Had upgraded toiletries. Very nice full breakfast, eggs,bacon, sausages, cereal, etc. located in a quiet area. Manager very helpful in helping us find places of interest. Will stay here again.

We only stayed for one night at the start of our holiday. Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The bed was really comfy. The accommodation is well maintained and the staff were all lovely. We didn't see much of the area as we arrived quite late in the evening. A walk down to the beach is a must though.

We were on a business trip and the usual places I am booked were sold out, and we happened upon the Bella Notte. This small property was 2 blocks from the beach and close to dining and shopping. But the best part was the property itself, with great landscaping and flower boxes, large, quiet and up to date rooms, even...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for our anniversary we really liked the place, it was nice and clean. It was a little too pricey but I think it's reasonable. I liked the hot tub. And the breakfast was ok and free. Overall I would stay here again if they lower the price. We only stayed for a night. It...

Don't forget to take your key with you because if you leave it in your room you might be sleeping in your car (the hotel office closes around 9:00pm). This is a very cute Inn, slightly south of the downtown area of Santa Cruz. Its very quiet and small, not too much around it, so your going to have a...

We liked it it, liked it a lot. Not a 5 star hotel, but I could definitely stay there again. We received a warm, friendly greeting, making us feel genuinely welcome. Stayed in room 10, which was very large, comfy and clean. The room has a king size bed, wet bar, large couch, a gas insert fireplace and bathrobes. Bathroom...

My husband and I just left the Bella Notte this morning. Everything was as described....a clean and comfortable inn. The owners are very attentive and the rooms are stocked with all needs, including bottled water. The fridge was larger than expected and we were able to pick up some items at a Whole Foods close by. A warm breakfast was...

Santa Cruz has lots of dumpy looking motels. Bella Notte isn't one of them but I also wouldn't describe it as "luxury" as other reviews had. It's a nice enough motel that serves a good breakfast and has comfortable beds and high end toiletries. Staff was pleasant and gave us some good dining tips. I'd stay there again because it's...

What a joy it was to stay at The Bella Notte! I looked at many properties before booking here and I was not disappointed. We stayed in a King Superior (Room 7) which was quite large for a hotel room. My wife thought it was as big as a studio apartment. Big furniture, big bed, walk-in closet, large bathroom, fireplace,...
