The location was great, close to Twin Lake beaches. Walked in about 7 min. It was an older establishment, cleaned very well. For a better cost in Santa Cruz, good location, I would recommend. I would stay here again.

The room was very nice and me and my friends had a blast. The only complaint was that the upstairs got really warm and night and in the day. The cooler downstairs only did so much.

The Harbor Inn is the perfect place from which to launch adventures in and around the Santa Cruz area without being in the middle of the boardwalk crowd. It is quiet, clean, comfortable and had all of the amenities anyone would require for a comfortable stay. I walked, hiked and biked all over. It is a lovely place. I will be back!
