Testimonals of Mission Inn, Santa Cruz

We would like to share some of the great experiences our guests have had at the Mission Inn.  Please take a moment to read what they have to say.

Thank you for your wonderful hospitality while visiting our relatives during Thanksgiving. The rooms were large and clean.  My wife commented she had never stayed in a hotel room so clean.  We enjoyed the spa, refrigerator and microwave during our multi-day stay.  BTW: The front desk and house cleaning staff were such nice people.  We will be back!

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our recent visit to the Mission Inn.  The front desk person made us feel so welcome after a long drive.  Our room was large and spacious, and so clean.  We relaxed and enjoyed the Swift Street organic brewery, and some shopping.  Later we walked to Natural Bridges, at the recommendation of the desk person, to see the most fantastic sunset. We thought we were on a Pacific Island.

A gentleman, I soon found out was the General Manager, Kenn Clark, showed us with pride the remodeled Lobby, and talked about other upgrades to the hotel. He, also, recommended a great dinner spot, which was exactly what my wife and I wanted.

We will make the Mission Inn our home while in Santa Cruz!

This is a great hotel!  Nothing very fancy, but very clean and friendly.  This is our 3rd stay and we always go back.  It is walking distance to restaurants and a grocery store (large Safeway), and a quick drive to downtown, the beach, or UCSC.  The hot tub is small, but very clean.  Great value for the money!

My wife and I stayed 2 days at the Mission Inn.  The rooms were clean, and had a microwave, flatscreen TV and large fridge.  The morning breakfast was more than we expected.  Didn't get to use the sauna and the hot tub, as we are beach bums, and spent most of our time at the many beautiful beaches in Santa Cruz. The price was great.  We got to meet and speak with the G.M., Mr. Kenn Clark, who was very friendly and professional.  He gave us some tips on nearby events and fun things to do...great Guy!!!......Stay at the Mission Inn !!! won't be sorry...THE ROGGES

My family and I stayed at this hotel over Thanksgiving, and we loved it!  We were looking for a place to stay that was in a nice location, and reasonably priced.   We found the Mission Inn hotel online and decided to try it out.  It ended up being great!  The rooms were very nice (and clean).  Checking into the hotel was very easy, and the management is very nice and accommodating.  I got to meet the Manager of the hotel and he was really great.

What I also liked about this hotel was their continental breakfast.  They have a variety of foods to choose from and it is very delicious.  Overall, this hotel is a great place to stay, and I would definitely recommend it to someone coming into town!

Nice hotel on the Highway 1, near the edge of town.  A good location for UCSC, and less than a mile from the Natural Bridges beach.  In the Spanish style with clean rooms, and a courtyard setting that's quite attractive......they take a lot of care with the landscaping.  Staff are very pleasant.  I always book my in-laws and friends there.  It keeps them happy and out of my house!

If you're in Santa Cruz for a night or two, this is a nice and convenient place to stay.  Rooms are spacious and clean, and there is easy parking.  It's not right in downtown, but you can walk or even take a cab.  It's about a 5 minute drive. They have a jacuzzi too.

We were there for a wedding.  It's a nice place to plan and have a bunch of people stay.

We booked a three day stay at the Mission Inn, two days before our trip.  We arrived after 3:00 A.M., and the staff was able to accomodate our late check-in without issues.  Our room was always super clean and we were able to park right in front of our room.  The housekeeping staff were very polite and greeted us every time we passed by.  They were very respectful about not making too much noise in the early hours.  Overall, noise was not a concern.  We used the jacuzzi at night and it was very relaxing.  Our room had a fridge and microwave, which came in handy.  Overall, we loved it and are going back to the Mission Inn>  We will make sure to book ahead of time, to ensure a double bed room.

We stayed for one night on our drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco. Staff were helpful at check-in, and the room was big and spotlessly clean.  Excellent value for a comfortable bed.  The fridge and microwave in the room were a bonus.

This was a very nice place to stay, and the management was very friendly and helpful.  The rooms were clean and nice.  It was a very convenient location, close to a lot of things.  We really enjoyed our stay there.

Really, Oh My Gosh... What a diamond in the rough this place is!  I booked two rooms over Memorial weekend, for my daughter's wedding.  Didn't think this place was going to be as nice as it was.  Very clean.  Helpful staff.  Bed was so comfy!  My wife and I are already planning our next Santa Cruz weekend trip. Seriously, if you are looking for a nice, clean place, for a good deal, look no further than Mission Inn!

We loved this place - it was so nice and clean!!!!  It was located very near a most beautiful view of the ocean.  People were jogging, walking their dogs, or just sitting on the many benches, located along the walking path, enjoying the ocean breeze and view.  An excellent spot to take some photos.  One block away was a big Safeway shopping center and many little restaurants. This hotel is not far from main street Santa Cruz and the Beach Boardwalk.  We will surely stay there again and recommend it highly - AAA approved also !!!
