Great place to stay. Large very clean rooms, closest to UCSC, minutes from beautiful West Cliff Dr. the Boardwalk, Natural Bridges State Park and the Monarch Butterfly's. A 3 minute walk to Swift St. Court with food, shopping, a great bakery, and MJA Vineyards for wine tasting. The staff, front desk to housekeeping were super friendly. The Mission Inn is the best place to stay in Santa Cruz!
