Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Santa Cruz

Hotel in Westside Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz

Located off scenic California Highway 1, Fairfield Inn & Suites is less than 2 miles away from the University of California Santa Cruz. I like staying at this property as it is quiet, a nice walk to the ocean and away from the downtown Santa Cruz. Restaurants are within walking distant, 10-15 minutes.

Continental Inn

Hotel in Westside Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz

Just a 5 minute drive from the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, this hotel offers an outdoor pool and hot tub and has spacious rooms with free WiFi. It offers free on site parking. The Continental Inn was in an excellent location. It was across the street from a great Thai restaurant and a Chinese restaurant that we didn't try, just a couple of blocks from the downtown shopping area and within walking distance of the boardwalk, wharf, and the ocean. The rooms were sparkling clean, nicely decorated, had a comfortable bed, didn't have any strange smell to the room, great coffee and coffee maker, at least 5 HBO premium stations on the TV plus every other channel you could ask for, the room was quiet, had plenty of safe parking, and the staff were friendly and very helpful. We will definitely be coming back!
