Straightforward, pleasant, and helpful in picking local establishments and routes. Room was well above expectations! If I was to nitpick, the pancakes at the breakfast buffet looked a bit sad, but everything else was fantastic!

Very friendly staff. Well kept up and spacious rooms. The motel itself is on a busy road but back off the street which keeps it quieter than the other motels in the area. A nice walk to town. Great value!

Clean and big room, good quality insides, and nice service, too. And even better, free and good quality breakfast, including sassage, egg white, fresh fruit and coffee, tea, etc. Very good experience. Absolutely will come next time.

I was there for 1 night. The owner is really friendly and correct. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast was more than I hoped for. Absolutely no complains! If I would visit Santa Cruz again, no doubt I would book here again.

Very nice motel, the rooms are clean and equipped with everything you need for your stay. Also the manager is very friendly :-) ! If we come back to Santa Cruz some day, the Quality Inn will be our choice again!
