When you stay halfway between Santa Cruz and Monterey, you get the finest of both worlds. Delight in everything these two cities have to offer, but away from the hustle and bustle. Guests can slip away to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk and the Monterey Aquarium, or linger only 5 miles away at Sunset Beach, where golden sands and fabulous outdoor recreation are on hand.
