I stayed at the Mission Inn some 20 years ago and decided to try it again when I couldn't get into another hotel. I'm glad I did. It's much improved from my first stay. The room is modern and spacious, with all the amenities you'd hope to find in a good hotel: refrigerator, coffee maker, iron and ironing board, writing...

Though I initially regretted paying this much for a place to stay one night away from home, in the end I thought it was well worth it. Not a chain motel! Staffed by friendly helpful people! The room was clean, well-appointed, and quiet. The grounds were nicely landscaped; parking was convenient. We walked to dinner at nearby At Thai Recipe....

The Mission Inn was very comfortable. The rooms were nice, clean, stocked with expected amenities. We appreciated having a refrigerator and mircrowave to use. The staff were exceptionally courteous and helpful. The location was convenient and our room near the back of the inn was very quiet. My husband is disabled and the room we had roomy walkways and an...

The beds were comfortable and the room was spacious. The hotel was only a 10 minute walk from West Cliff Drive, which has a beautiful path to walk along the waterfront. The showers were hot and powerful. The wifi was fast. The breakfast was good. Everything felt very clean. The sauna was an unexpected perk. The hot tub was nice...

Closest lodging to UC Santa Cruz. Really nice rooms and people. Short walks to restaurants and Safeway along Mission Ave. We walked to downtown Santa Cruz from the hotel and the boardwalk, very pleasant trip.

We have been on a two week road trip around California and this is the best place we've found in terms of value for money so far. Rooms were large, clean and had decent coffee facilities!

This hotel is a pretty standard hotel. It's an older hotel that was updated at some point. The interior isn't bad and it seems pretty clean. It is nicely located close to UCSC and many shops and restaurants on the west side of Santa Cruz. Staff is very dedicated and helpful. There is a sauna and hot tub that many...

After an enjoyable and busy day in the Santa Cruz area, we enjoyed our stay here, for one night only. It was a very well maintained property. It would have to be, because I was a former maintenance specialist. In rating a hotel property, the two deciding factors for a room are the bed/mattress, and the overall bathroom, shower and...
