Location Location Location. Plus you got a fridge and a microwave oven.

There was a garbage can in the room that still had garbage in it from the previous guests. Tacky at best.

The rooms are small but well equipped. Kind of shabby inside the rooms. A remodel might be nice. The bathroom was too dark.

The staff was pleasant and helpful calling me a cab.

It was a good motor inn. We had a nice overnight stay.

For my needs, I like the location. Everything that a traveler needs was walking distance or very close by. Food, markets, subway, 7/11 etc

A little noisy since it is located on Mission and the continental breakfast was a little weak.

A very good hotel for the price. Friendly staff and the rooms are clean and spacious for a 2 star hotel. A bit noisy since it is located on a busy street and the continental breakfast could use a little more selection. Otherwise, recommend this hotel to all

The location is what brings us back. Close to grand kids.

There was broken glass around our sink which was still there the next day after the room being cleaned. This was worrisome. I could not see anything that was broken so it must have been from another occupant. Therefore we left no tip for the cleaning staf

This hotel is a bit on the expensive side. Spent less for a Jr. Suite in Las Vegas per night.

The location is wonderful. It is within walking distance to downtown restaurants and shops as well as the boardwalk and the pier. The rooms are immaculate and very quaint. The staff, especially Sam, is spectacular. He is extremely accomodating.

Our stay at the Babbling Brook was wonderful and we will definitely make it our number one choice when staying in the Santa Cruz area. The food offered at the evening reception as well as breakfast was deliciuous and far surpassed any included breakfast we have experienced at most other hotels. The environment is serene and relaxing, a great get-away! I would highly recommend this hotel!

First, you need to realize that in Santa Cruz all of the rooms are going to be over priced and not comparable to the standards you are used to. If you want a updated room you better be prepared to pay $250-$300 + a night and there will still be things to gripe about. For $100 a night this is a great room, it is very clean, the people who run the place are very nice. Its in a good location to downtown and the freeway but surprisingly quiet. Your here for the town not the room go out and enjoy everything Santa Cruz has to offer. This is just a place to sleep and get ready for the next adventure.

The water pressure sucks and on a busy night the parking can get tight. They should # the parking spots so each room as at least one assigned space.

Very nice rooms and extremely friendly and helpful staff. Everything in the room seemed very clean and loved the creative decorating. Made it an enjoyable stay.

A surprising amount of kids.. My boyfriend and I expected a few of course but there were quite a bit! We could hear them running around at night and in the morning which got quite old

Prices are either the average per night price per room or first night of stay. You can select to display the prices with or without our estimate of taxes & fees (which may not appear on provider's booking page but will be charged at hotel checkout). Before you complete your reservation, verify the total cost on the provider's site. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
