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 intimacy of a small hotel just outside of Santa Cruz proper

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.

It was clean.

Rooms recently, I presume, redone...very cheaply redone...beds fine...no decor...floors and shower looked like cheap linoleum...not even hooks in bathroom...makeshift soap dish in shower screwed into wall...reminded me of a cheap mobile home - Restaurant very different now, good service, good food, loud - like a local dress down spot - very loud - $33 dinners didn't match lack of ambiance. Flower boxes out front had almost dead scant flowers and the boxes are the originals - old needed paint and repair from major obvious termite infestation. Potholes in parking lot - I could go on......
