“Great Hotel, Great Price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2012

We go to Santa Cruz several times a year to visit my son. We have stayed at several hotels. Now that we discovered Days Inn, we won't go anywhere else. The service and price can't be beat! We were upgraded to a suite with no additional charge. The free breakfast is great...waffles!! :-) There are two jacuzzis. Who can ask for more? The front desk people are very friendly and helpful, especially Ash. Good location, free Wi-Fi, cable TV, etc. Highly recommend.

It never ceases to amaze me when people write nit picky reviews of budget hotels. It's budget for a reason people! If you want the Four Seasons, go pay $400 a night. Yes, this place is slightly rough around the edges (stained carpet, chipped paint in doorways etc) but for $63 (AAA discount) what do you expect? The rooms definitely look better in the photos, but that's usually the case with budget hotels. Our room was clean, the lobby was spotless, the desk staff was friendly and attentive, there was a water purifier in our room (I have never seen this before) and we got a fantastic free breakfast (fresh cooked waffles, pastries etc). I have no complaints.

Room Tip: We had dogs with us and were given room 119 which is right near the lobby. They seem to put all gues...

We visit Santa Cruz two or three times per year to do a weekly surf trip. We have stayed at this hotel for probably the past seven years. We like it for the following reasons:
1. It is within walking distance to the downtown area
2. Free breakfast (which we enjoy)
3. Balconies off the room
4. Hot tubs
5. Friendly staff
