Great hotel experience in Santa Cruz

Posted 25-Feb-2015
Beautiful wooded campus. Rooms are modern spacious and clean. Very comfortable beds with outstanding linen. Was only a short stay so we did not get to enjoy everything the hotel has to offer. Will be going back again.

Very nice hotel, good restaurant with ocean view

Pros: Very comfortable, good location for experiencing Santa Cruz
A little expensive for a room that opened onto the parking area, but other than that, great experience.

Stay was nice! Pet friendly was a plus!

We stayed for a night and it was a nice lil getaway. We have a lil pup and he was able to go everywhere with is. There's also a dog menu at the restaurant. Trails were nice, bed was comfy. They gave us a free upgrade which was great!

Pet friendly yet very classy.

Posted 17-Feb-2015
Pros: Pet friendly, clean, beautiful location, family friendly.
Cons: Better/more signs on the hike. It was very easy to get lost or turned around.
Location: We went to the beach for the day in Santa Cruz.
We stayed here for a quick evening trip to SC and it was perfect! We brought along our dog for the first ever pet related trip and I couldn't have asked for better accommodations. The grounds were clean and spacious, the hospitality was very nice, and it was very pet friendly, family friendly and yet very classy. We took a beautiful hike on the trails and were very pleased. A better map and better signage would have been helpful as we got misguided on the hike. But it was beautiful for kids, adults and dogs alike. Expedia did not tell them we had a pet so communication went awry someplace but they took us in. Registration took a while but it was worth it. Thank you!!

I enjoyed my stay here. They offer a lot of activities. Very impressive grounds. The rooms are pretty basic and have a weird chemical odor. Everything is really great but the rooms arent very nice. But at the same time with the grounds that they have its obvious your not supposed to go there to stay in the room.

Enjoyed the stay overall.

Posted 16-Feb-2015
Pros: Brunch food! Views! Location!
Cons: It needs some upgrades for sure to justify its reputation. Hallways, mattresses!
Location: Great location and views! 15 minutes from most of Santa Cruz, but not right downtown in the busy sections of town.
Staff were wonderful - very nice and helpful. The room was fine but the bed comfort was very average for the price considering this is a resort. Hallways appeared to need some upgrades to be commiserate with the price (looked cheap). Seating for the weekend brunch on Valentine's weekend were frustrating. We had reservations for when the opened, arrived on time, and had to wait for 30 minutes for our table when it was obvious then did not know what they were doing at the front desk. The buffet was excellent though and the view spectacular!

Beautiful Valentine's Weekend

Posted 16-Feb-2015
Found this place on Expedia when was looking for a weekend getaway. This place was extremely beautiful and there is so much to do there. Along with being so close to the beach.
