"Friendly staff directed us to nearby sites of interest (hiking, cycling, dinners). The setting just a few miles from the heart of Santa Cruz is ideal and stunningly beautiful. Really enjoy this family-owned motel."

Overview

Rustic charm awaits within a majestic wooded setting at the Inn at Pasatiempo, just 4 miles from the Santa Cruz beaches. Known for its worry-free attitude, the area appeals to nature lovers and urbanites alike. The boutique inn offers casual and spacious accommodations -- perfect for either a family getaway or romantic retreat. 

Unwind with a stroll through the grounds' luscious gardens and various trails. For a bit more activity, walk to the adjacent 1929 Alister MacKenzie-designed Pasatiempo Golf Club, one of the top 100 Greatest Public Courses for 2013-2014 by Golf Digest. Non-golfers can post up beside the outdoor heated pool, open year-round with views of the course. 

Newly renovated guest rooms designed by local artist Michelle Prough offer a rustic elegant vibe with wood-beamed vaulted ceilings and either a king bed or two queen beds. The recently renovated on-site restaurant Back Nine Grill and Bar serves casual, fresh grill favorites and local California wines.

Those looking to go out and about should spend the day on the coast of Santa Cruz, just a 10-minute drive from the inn. With shops and restaurants, beautiful Pacific beaches and historic wooden roller coasters at the boardwalk, there is a lot to explore in this coastal town.

The quiet. Also the convenience of being close to family for a memorial. Close enough but separate! Also, I loved the flowers and plants outside my door.
Other Comments
The pool area smelled like open sewer. There is no way I would have gotten in it with that smell around. Both myself and friend had to request rooms for different reasons. They are clearly renovating and should only offer rooms that have been fully renovated.

I thought it might be too far from downtown Santa Cruz but it was very convenient. We spend a great deal of our time in Capitola and Sunset Beach area. Everything was located very close to us! Lovely place and beautiful flowers!

The intimacy of a small hotel just outside of Santa Cruz proper
Other Comments
Room needed a few more amenities. They could use a dresser for clothes or some shelving to accommodate personal items both in the room and bathroom. Also some hooks to hang a bathrobe, wet towels, etc. Hot water was slow to heat up. Garbage pickup is right outside our door and woke us up along with workers starting early. Having a ceiling fan would help ventilation in the room.
