Reasonably priced. Room was very quiet and quite large. New A/C unit. Bed was comfortable. Across from Safeway.

Breakfast was mediocre. Location was not ideal (busy road, kind of sketchy at night). Breakfast room was hard to find.

Street can be busy in the afternoon. Two story hotel.

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!

Location was 2 blocks from the wharf which was nice. The room was well kept and not too shabby.

Vending machine was extremely over priced and didnt have much to offer. The in room refrigerator did not keep things cold just kind of cool.

Overall 8 out of 10. Nice location, clean up to date room. Free parking.

The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Will definitely come back again.

I did not appreciate the gentleman who checked us in rolling his eyes at me but I could see he was a bit stressed. The rest of the staff was great.

The pool could use some landscaping. Great location!

The staff were amazing! I especially appreciated the manager (pr person) who roved the lobby chatting with guests and checking to see how their stay was going. Truthfully , this was an exceptional experience- the complementary breakfast bar was excellent!

The parking is limited and challenging due to all the pillars blocking spaces- just a bit annoying but seismically correct I'm sure.

The hotel offered a lite breakfast.

The parking was absolutely inadequate. They charged $10 a day for parking that was not even in the parking lot. They were double parking people at night. We chose not to drive in order to keep our car parked in the lot.

My husband and son are allergic to cats so even if you do not bring a pet the allergy are still in the air. My husband and son were miserable. The room was small for two adults and two kids even with the two queen beds.

Nothing , I left and had to get another room. No AC, room was very hot. There was garbage outside in several places from remodeling, huge piles. Several people with doors open and hanging outside in parking lot due to heat, 3 people asking for money back.

Homeless loitering, dirty, very hot at the time I was there, rude office guy. Never again.

Ease of access from freeway

Bed not made up. 'Free' WIFI didn't work. Loud guests - music and screaming at midnight. Bathroom window did not open, even after Herculean effort by staff. Good thing I was alone.

The staff were amazingly friendly and the front desk receptionist was probably the nicest I've come across (Yolanda). Our room was wonderful and we took several pictures for ideas to do some remodeling to our own home. Everything was very clean and well maintained. We highly recommend Hotel Paradox and will be likely to stay there again next time we are in Santa Cruz

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.
