Continental Inn Oct 10, 2013
Most of the Santa Cruz is walkable and this place is pretty close to the center of the town (where most of the activities, entertainment and interest¬ing restaurants are) and also it is fairly close to the beach. I mean, 15-20 minutes walk for me is not worth getting in the car, so it is not really US people meaning of close by.

Connection to the roads is very good and you will be in and out of the city in no time. Continental Inn sprawls on both side of the road with the main office and reception under the building that features large concrete entrance awning. The other building looks more like apartment complex, and maybe they do have long term rents in that area. Rows of rooms are connected with the balcony which doubles for in and out pathway. Main building looks like classic strip-hotel glued to the road or a highway. But, surprisingly enough this place has some class and good taste in most of the things they do.

Bed and bedding were in excellent condition, and room featured all good things such as coffee machine (Keurig, with few strong coffee cups ), nice TV with enough bad channels, microwave and small fridge. That fridge did not keep my ice cream frozen, but I did survived… The nicest thing was the bathroom that had really good soaps, shampoos and nice soft towels. It was almost like a resort hotel amenities…

Hotel is surrounded with parking lots so you will have enough space to leave your car. In the back corner of the parking lot there was a Jacuzzi covered with a roof and some kind of garden wall. I went to check it out and it looks clean and works good. It is just that I am not into hot water tubs when I don’t know who and how often they change water… I think that they also have a pool, but I did not see it.

Breakfast is included in the price (which was on lower end of hotels in the area, I think we paid around 70$) and it is a good one for “continental style” breakfast that you can get. They have waffle machine, toaster, microwave, and they supply unlimited amounts of good baggless, bread, muffins… There is also a fridge from which you can take any of the yogurts you like (selection is pretty good). Waffle machine is a good add on to the “warm breakfast” concept that obviously includes lots of preserve and honey. I wished they supply simple treats like Nutella heheh

People on the reception are young and pleasant, and they will help you to find your way around the town. Place is pretty secure over night.

Close to the inn you will find 7/11 24 hour store and downtown is just short walk across the bridge.

In general, it was very good and positive experience, warmly recommended for anyone who does not need to look at the sunrise over the water while in Santa Cruz.
