We stayed here last minute while on a road trip this past weekend. The room we stayed at was just painted and it smelled of paint. Which isn't that big of a deal... The room was clean but nothing special about them. We went to the continental breakfast which wasn't bad at all. The staff was friendly as well.

Rooms that are comfortable but getting a bit tired and run down. Prices are on the high side for the inclusions. Quiet where we were. Toilet blocked up. Room service forgot to clear our room for us. A couple of rooms spewed out a consistent pot cloud every day we were there; despite the no smoking rule. Breakfast is a...

Depending on where you need to stay while visiting Santa Cruz, rage Mission Inn is a good spot to consider. It is close to UCSC and restaurants and shops and decently close to 'downtown Santa Cruz'. The staff if courteous and helpful. The price isn't cheap but not too bad either. There is a free small breakfast - but there...

Good location as the hotel is near restaurants and shops. It is right on PCH which is very busy. The large room was very clean and comfortable. It was a little dark but we were only there for one night. The front desk staff were all very friendly and helpful with any questions or requests.

We found this place last minute and loved it! The location is spectacular...very close to the ocean and many area parks. The bed/bedding was so comfortable! The breakfast was great--had some microwaveable sandwiches, waffles and some cereal and breads and such. The staff was so friendly as well. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone!

Mission Inn was clean, comfortable and entirely acceptable. The room where we stayed was a little dark for my taste. With only 1 small window facing the courtyard. The front desk staff were very nice and helpful. Kids get a free sand bucket and tools with a few snacks :) They certainly make an effort.

The Inn is centrally located between the ocean and the quaint downtown. It is also across the street from a great donut shop. The room was large enough, clean and quite. The desk staff was very helpful with dinner suggestions and directions

We stayed here because it was close to our daughter house, nice find. Very clean, good location, it's on the main drag [Highway One], but we got a room towards the back and it was surprisingly quiet. The a/c was quiet as well. Shopping center right across the street. Nice young man at the front desk, this will be our...
