Love the Staff/Location/Service/Food and Everything about this Amazing Hotel
Reviewed 8 hours ago

I can't say enough wonderful things about the Staff/Service/Food at the Hilton Santa Cruz/Scotts Valley. This was our 7th stay at your Beautiful Hotel and the main reason we return is because of the Staff/Location and Beautiful Accommodations. We will be back!

A bit dated Hilton
Reviewed 2 days ago

We stayed in a suite at 6th floor, quiet and comfortable, facing the woods. The room is spacious with thank you gifts. The carpet everywhere is dated and doesn’t look clean, which needs a bit vacuum work and fragrance. Breakfast is simple; scrambled eggs is a no; petite pastries is a yes. Overall, it’s an ok stay.

Dog Friendly
Reviewed 5 days ago

We have stayed at this Hilton property before and always liked it. It has a nice feel about it and has a very nice breakfast option which provides for a nice buffet and ordering eggs of your choice and pancakes/French toast. HiltonHonors offers two free breakfasts per stay to members. We had our dog with us on this visit and they allowed us to eat breakfast with our dog in the lounge area, a nice touch. The waitstaff were very friendly and enjoyed meeting our dog and sharing their dog photos. We stayed on the fourth floor which is where the pool and gym are located, and has the best access for walking your dog. We will be back.

Redwood Beauty
Reviewed 5 days ago

The Hotel Front Desk personnel are warm & friendly. A special shout-out to Blair, who couldn't make us feel more comfortable & special, when the airlines couldn't locate our luggage.

The Hotel itself is nestled in the Redwoods, just minutes from Downtown Santa Cruz. The grounds are well maintained. The Hotel Lobby is open & bright. The rooms and bathrooms are clean & fresh. Would love to stay here again!

Beautiful Property!

Great Hotel located in a quiet area but still fairly close to everything. The rooms seemed to be recently renovated; I loved the lighting in the bathroom! The pool area is nice and located in the back which is great!
