“Great location and value”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Hotel was comfortable, grounds were spacious, well landscaped and clean, hotel staff very helpful and courteous, and location was great. We were going to take our kids to Santa Cruz and weren't sure if the distance would be a factor. Definitely was not. In fact, was great as it was just off the freeway, just across from the beach. Only minutes from Capitola, Santa Cruz and since we ended up going to Monterey Aquarium, was close there as well. I would recommend this hotel over the crowded, noisy and much more costly hotels near the boardwalk. This hotel is also a good place for business meetings and wedding receptions. We saw how they handled both and could see how well they conducted these functions.

This hotel is in a great location! It's close to the grocery store, fast food, beach and restaurants! The rooms are a good size and clean. The pool area is nice and offers drink service. The hot and FREE breakfast is pretty good with a huge variety of options. The bar has a great happy hour and there is even live music if you are interested. Definitely my preferred hotel when visiting this area. I'll be back....

My son and I stayed at the Best Western Sea Cliff and had a great time. We enjoyed the pool, the Jacuzzi and especially the Koi pond. We hope to come back and be there in time for feeding time, which I was told was 1:00 p.m.

We love this hotel so close to the beach yet affordable with on-site lounge bar restaurant and swimming pool. The restaurant food is always fresh and cooked properly. The seafood ceviche is a favorite appetizer alongside a dirty martini.

Free breakfast everyday made this hotel a lot better. When you are on vacation meals can get expensive so might as well get rid of one meal if you can. Breakfast consisted of scrambled eggs, potatoes, sausage, cereal, danishes, coffee, juice and oatmeal. Hotel was clean and restaurant named Severinos was pretty alright.

Great family hotel. Pool area, free and robust breakfast make it extremely kid friendly. Everyone extremely friendly and accommodating, plus really well designed. The restaurant/bar truly makes the place. We had two meals plus the two free breakfast meals because the staff and food is very good. On top of this, of course, you are 600 yards from the beach. It has a resort feel without an ounce of pretense or "stuffiness." Beds extremely comfortable. We will always come back.
