Close to my favorite beaches, and central to shopping.
By hobermonster
stayed at the holiday inn express for a weekend trip with my fiance. we stayed one night in the Jacuzzi suite. i will go back! aside of being very close to the beaches (10 min drive to each sunset [More] and manresa) its just a nice place. the room was great, the views were better than i thought. its quiet, and central to grocery shopping and a pharma. i will be going back and i would suggest to a friend.

great gal at the front desk
By loneoak6946
I was so frazzled by the time I arrived. The rental car charger didn't work and my ability to find my way there from San Jose was compromised. I would be on the road for the next 5 days and I [More] desperately needed a working car charger. She called the rental company on my behalf. All I had to do was drive to Monterey, about 30 minutes, and swap the car. The car keys were waiting for me at the desk. It was awesome. Room was quiet, slept well to the sounds of nature outside.

My experience at this hotel was one for the books. My boyfriend and I drove down from Tahoe after 5 o'clock. By the time we arrived, it was 10:30. Most hotels stop running credit cards at 11. We were [More] in a panic, wondering why we left so late and where we would stay. I spoke with a girl on the phone who told me the rates. It was a little pricer than we wanted to pay but since she was so sweet we kept it in mind. I called to other hotels and found somewhere cheaper. My boyfriend made a reservation at a different hotel since I was driving and I didn't like the customer service this other hotel had. She was rude when my boyfriend asked her to repeat herself since we couldn't hear very well on the phone. We called back to the Holiday Inn Express, and reserved the room immediately that time, aside from the cost. I pulled up to the building, and went inside to check in, there was a man and a woman working and they were so hospitable for being almost 11pm at night. I was hungry and cranky and they were beyond sweet and understanding that I was so tired from working all day then driving for 6 hours. They really perked me up. We put our stuff in the room which was so clean and tidy and then went back downstairs. There was another guy working since the shifts switched and he recommended the cutest little diner just right down the road. Not being used to one-way roads, I thought he was talking about Denny's.... my GPS soon told me to turn the other way and we pulled up to the notably adorable. We ate, went to bed, got up, and I had to fight my boyfriend from 7 am-10am to get up out of bed. He was so comfortable he didn't want to move. Both of us would recommend this hotel to anyone, especially in Santa Cruz specifically for the customer service and cleanliness. We can't wait to stay here again. [Less]
Comfortable bed and clean, spacious facilities.

Great breakfast, fast, friendly service. Get a room that does not look out toward the freeways and you will have a very pleasant time here. Well-located since you can walk to the Pacific Mall. [Less]
Birthday Stay
By kk808
I went to Santa Cruz for my birthday and ended up at a hotel that had dirty, smelly rooms and horrible customer service. I was able to find availability and a price which matched my budget at the [More] Holiday Inn and immediately went there. The staff was welcoming and friendly. They went above and beyond to accommodate my requests throughout my stay. The hotel rooms were clean and comfortable. There was a steam room which was very relaxing. The hotel itself was is a nicer neighborhood which made me feel safe. [Less]
