Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Weekend Getaway
Quick girls weekend away in Santa Cruz. Very happy with our stay at this hotel. Katrina at the front desk is a gem and made us feel so welcome. Hotel is bright and clean. There was plenty of parking and we were happy to have complimentary breakfast. Also, coffee/tea always available in the lobby which is a nice touch. I recommend this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gloughie Wonderful welcome.
I would like to commend the front desk staff for their friendliness and for the wonderful welcome we got, not only on our arrival but as we returned from our various outings. Reception staff are responsible for the first impression of any hotel and at this Holiday Inn Express they excel.
We were pleased with the breakfast choices and were able to enjoy a nutritious breakfast each day. As for other meals, there are plenty of places to eat in Santa Cruz, but we found that a very convenient Denny's across the road worked well for us on occasion.
We found the local bus service was convenient and the 35A, heading away from town, actually travels for miles through a Redwood forest.
So overall, this hotel is conveniently located, is clean, has a good breakfast and makes the visitor feel welcome.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Partychick Great hotel, great staff
We stayed for two nights at Holiday Inn Express Santa Cruz. Excellent hotel and amenities. Very comfortable. Convenient location.
Staff could not do enough for you -- early check-in, late check out, searched for information on local events, printed maps and directions from "Google". A smile and hello from every single person.
Our next visit to the area will be in two years time, but we will make an extra effort to stay at this hotel.
