“Pleasantly surprised. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014 via mobile

My sister and I got in pretty late after a 16 hour drive and were looking hard for a place to stay. Our budget wasn't huge, and we were worried at the prices of some of the other hotels. Mission Inn gave us a great room at a very solid price. The pretty red-headed lady at the front desk was VERY helpful and pleasant after a long day on the road. We got a king bed and it was heavenly. There were yummy mints on the nightstand, lots of fluffy pillows, a fridge and microwave, and a nice tv. I slept like someone dead, I felt safe, and I really recommend it there for anyone.

Our family was in Santa Cruz for a sand soccer tournament and didn't want to pay $300 for an average hotel room. We were very happy with this less expensive alternate. The room and beds were fine. The only improvement I could suggest is a better breakfast. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the hotel for a week. It was nice experience overall. We were allowed to check in before 3pm (our room was ready ahead of time). Personnel was friendly and helpful. The room rate is pretty reasonable given the location. It is in waling distance from restaurants and shopping.

We recently got married and used Mission Inn as our preferred hotel for guests as it was just a 5 minute drive to our venue. We had 23 rooms booked with our wedding. This is not a very fancy place, but it is clean and staff is excellent! In addition the patio areas were a perfect gathering place for guest and the wedding party to congregate and have lunch or breakfast together. The prices were reasonable and the staff was flexible in all our many requests. It felt more like a big vacation home and I loved that we were able to spend so much time with our guests!!

PS try the breakfast buffet much more than cold cereal and fruit!

Room Tip: The Deluxe King Rooms are very spacious and have deep jacuzzi tubs!

My family was just passing through Santa Cruz, so we wanted a comfortable, clean, quiet room with a complimentary breakfast. The Mission Inn provided this with great service and convenient parking to boot. It was nice to start the day with bagels, juice and yogurt. If we are in Santa Cruz again, the Mission Inn will be at the top of our list.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are quieter if no one is using the hot tub.

I stayed at the Mission Inn for one night on a business trip in Santa Cruz. The location is perfect: right on a main road, not too noisy, and within walking distance of great places to eat.

After some long travels, the friendly service at the desk made my day. The desk attendant recommended great places to eat and even offered to call to see if they are open since it was Easter Sunday.

The room interior was clean, spacious and well equipped with coffee, fridge, and other helpful amenities for business travel. The decor is nothing worth noting, but nothing hideous.

Parking is convenient and apparently there is spa, courtyard, and breakfast, but I didn't get to enjoy these offerings. There is a natural food store and Safeway within two blocks. I highly recommend eating at Sushi Totoro and getting a pint at Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing.

We were given excellent service by Beverly at the front desk. She was very friendly and professional, and gave us great suggestions for dining. She even worked with us on a room upgrade so we could park our motorcycles outside of our room. Clean, comfortable and relaxing, you won't be disappointed !
