  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

We loved Babbling Brook Inn! A very rustic setting among nature in the middle of town with the sounds of the babbling brook to lull us to sleep. We loved the classic architecture and the decor. Excellent service and delicious full breakfast! A classic bed & breakfast experience! Highly recommended and we will return!

Perfect location for visiting UCSC as well as getting around Santa Cruz. Charming and cozy rooms, great staff, love the complimentary cookies and wine, the breakfast... there are so few hotels these days that you actually look forward to staying in, but this one makes travel feel like a vacation.
