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 pet-friendly 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 or settle in for a relaxing lunch at one of the inn's three picnic areas. 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 GolfDigest. The non-golfers can post up beside the outdoor heated pool, open year-round with views of the course. 

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 coasters at the boardwalk, there is lot to explore in this coastal town.

Enjoyed Most: Continental breakfast was decent. The pastries were especially good. Convenient location between Santa Cruz and Scotts Valley, though next time I will book the Hilton for a few dollars more.
Other Comments: Overall condition of rooms could use some updates. Mattresses are very hard and pillows too thick. We stayed three nights last weekend in room 117 and our backs are a wreck. Gonna cost me extra just to get adjusted. Furnishings and carpets are fairly out dated and the shower would not drain very well and the basin would fill with water while we showered. Not worth the $200+ I paid per night! There is construction going on during the day which we were not told prior to staying and tractors were kicking up dust into the pool area. We opted not to use the pool because I could visually see the accumulation of dirt at the bottom of it probably kicked up from the tractors.
