Very good value for money ! Great service

Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Santa Cruz
All you want...
The hotel was extremely clean and the staff and manager very helpful. Hotel is a little way out of town but there are one or two places to eat within easy walking distance. I would definately stay here again.

Stay in Santa Cruz
Just stayed a night here whilst visiting our son. Good sized room with two queen beds. Particularly enjoyed the complimentary breakfast with lots of choice.

Parking rip off
Whilst we advised the hotel at the time of booking in and prior to departure that the confirmed booking included parking they made an unauthorised deduction from our credit card. AVOID THIS HOTEL
David, gb1 night romance trip
Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Santa Cruz
Would consider a return visit
Convenient location to UCSC & Hwy's but a little far to walk to beach. Meets or exceeds standards expected of HI-Ex, quiet room, underground parking (although a charge), above average included breakfast selection, pleasant & helpful staff for check-in/out. 4.2/5
