Over priced for a worn out hotel. Grounds are nice in the center of property. Staff is very polite-but I would only stay again if nothing else available. It would take a lot to remodel but would be worth it.

The grounds here are definitely a high point, much nicer than I expected from a Best Western. The staff were all friendly and the bar/restaurant had good food. Rooms are spacious and clean. If you're staying in building 2 I would suggest requesting the even numbered rooms that face the pool as the odd rooms face the parking lot and...

Great experience with extremely nice staff in every area that we experienced. Design of the hotel was nice. Our room was quiet for sleeping and the bed was comfortable. Near freeway but noise was not an issue.

Our room in the 500 building was newly renovated. The drapes, walls, bedding, flooring were all new looking. The bed was a little hard for me but OK to sleep on. The air conditioning was quiet as was the room. Our room looked out to the garden and we had 2 chairs and a table which was nice. The landscaping...

Stayed here for just one night. Really like the set up of the hotel. Rooms were very clean and included a refrigerator. Pool and spa is nice. Free breakfast was excellent. For the area, the price was just right. Also the hotel offers an excellent military discount so don't forget to ask for it.

This hotel was very nice. Our room was clean and modern. The grounds were beautiful. They offer a free breakfast with a nice variety. The staff was awesome, so accommodating, attentive and helpful.

This hotel is a mini-resort with a pool, waterfalls, a Koi pool, outdoor dining, small fitness room, and room buildings tastefully arranged in a circle around the pools. Completely isolated from the major roads nearby, it provides a surprising respite from the trucks and cars on US 1 and the hustle bustle of Aptos business traffic. The rooms are comfortable...

I would definitely stay again. The only thing i regret about this trip was not staying longer. The staff at the hotel was nice, property up to date, grounds were beautiful and the location was great. If you have a few hours bring your running shoes and hit the trails for a great workout.
