Reasonable rates, and has an excellent restaurant/bar, with a far better than average breakfast included with the room. 5 minute drive, 15 - 20 minute walk to a State Park with beaches - great for walking and wave watching (surfing with a wet suit - kinda chilly water). We have family in the area and have stayed numerous times over...

Best Western Seacliff Inn in Aptos, CA has been an annual December trip for my wrestling team for the last 6 years and we never consider staying anywhere else!! The staff is extremely accommodating and super friendly. As you can imagine, breakfast for a team of wrestlers is very important and The Seacliff Inn never disappoints!!

It is a nice hotel , could use a remodel, food is excellent, the hot water is inconsistent and water pressure low . Heater control doesn't make sense, if you lower the thermostat from a higher temperature it blows cold air

Needs improvement on quality of food re breakfast. Last stay bacon was served and Eggs Benedict. Surroundings are magnificent with the pond and Coi fish. Pool and hot tub were very enjoyable and was not over populated.
