Continental Inn

414 Ocean Street, Santa Cruz - Map
"Convenient location."
Had to move out of my room after the first night -- no power. Staff was helpful but I had to move across the street to the "annex". Not as convenient. Parking a hassle and too many homeless people roaming around.

Ocean Pacific Lodge

"Excellent location for affordable rooms"
It was within just about 10 minutes in walking distance from the boardwalk. It had a good view especially in the morning. The staff were friendly and clean. Could have had more breakfast such as bagels and such. The king size bedroom was spacious but there linens could have been replaced again.

"Casablanca On The Beach "
Hotel Facilities, Condition would have had a higher rating, but due to some off season construction to make it a nicer stay in the future, is the reason for my rating of 3. But the Hotel Facilities, Condition has not stopped me for making a one night return visit in 2 weeks. Really enjoyed our stay.

Babbling Brook Inn - Santa Cruz Hotels
Rating: 3.0 Stars

Babbling Brook Inn

1025 Laurel St, Santa Cruz - Map
"Cozy, charming boutique hotel w/ pretty landscape"
Lovely, cozy rooms with views of beautifully landscaped grounds, and yes, the sights & sounds of a pretty babbling brook! As I've said, the accommodations are cozy, not spacious, so depending on your needs/preference for space this may or may not be your "cup of tea". For us, it was a wonderful experience!!! The charm of the Babbling Brook Inn, as well as the attentive, friendly staff, delicious breakfasts & generous happy hour hors d'oeuvres & wine was just perfect for a surprise birthday get-away!!! I recommend the Monet, Degas, Van Gogh rooms. The Renoir & Sisley are very nice, as well if you don't mind hearing footsteps above you. Convenient location in Santa Cruz, w/in minutes of good restaurants & easy 15 min walking distance to beach! Truly a delightful, hidden treasure!

Torch Lite Inn

500 Riverside Ave, Santa Cruz - Map
"Close to Boardwalk "
Needs to have some touch ups done in the room's and a good cleaning. We stayed on the first floor but the people above us were up all night and had a child that ran and dropped stuff till around 1am. Our room phone started ringing at 10pm and kept rining on and off till midnight. The front desk told me it was someone in another room goofing around, well I was not amused, we had 2 kids with us trying to sleep aswell. We stayed 2 nights, 2nd night no problem they left and we slept good. 2nd problem we had was housekeeping "cleaned" our room yet we got no towels and no extra toilet paper (there were 4 of us) and when we asked for towel we got 2 and was told there is no more left. Only good thing is it was a 5 minute walk to the boardwalk.

    Santa Cruz is calling — find the perfect hotel

    Everyone wants to score a deal on travel, but price is just one factor to consider when booking an unforgettable hotel. Whether you’re visiting family, attending a conference or taking a well-earned vacation in Santa Cruz, having an awesome experience should be a no-brainer.

    Hotwire will hook you up! From restful nights near your flight to that prime spot in the city’s heart, we’ve done our research to bring the best options to your fingertips. Book your Santa Cruz hotel with us now and start your next adventure.

    You’re not the average traveler — and we know it

    You’ve done your homework and know exactly where you want to go. We’re here to help with some Hotwire travel geek-approved tips on how to save on your booking.

    Get away for the weekend

    Hotels in bigger cities usually charge higher rates during the week, when people are traveling for business. Weekends can be a bargain! It’s the other way around for vacation spots, so if you’re looking for a beach escape, consider a mid-week trip.

    Give yourself some wiggle room

    If your plans are flexible, play around with some different travel dates – a shift of a few days either way can help you save big. Prices usually jump the weekends before and after popular holidays, so we recommend steering clear of them. Or consider visiting during the off-season, when prices are generally lower.

    Plan around big events

    Are prices surprisingly high? There might be a huge conference or festival in town. Consider shifting your dates if you can. Of course, if that’s why you’re going, you’ll have to bite the bullet. We’ll still work to get you the best rates out there.

    Noodle over new adventures

    Set aside time to plan what you want to see, taste and discover. Nothing completes a trip, big or small, like a few new experiences! Check city apps or area websites to find out what’s new and what events are happening during your stay. Even during a family reunion, you can detour to that locals-only fish taco stand or under-the-radar music club. Your cousins will be impressed.
