When it comes to California’s most famous cities, Aptos doesn’t exactly top the list. In fact, the majority of travelers likely haven’t even heard of this Golden State stop. Well, it’s about time they listened up. Located in the perpetually sunny Santa Cruz County, Aptos overlooks Monterey Bay beaches, lush national park forests, and many more exciting oceanside attractions. 

Come discover your Aptos oasis at Best Western Seacliff Inn. The beauty of Santa Cruz County and Monterey Bay combine at this family-friendly hotel.

The California coast is on full display here. 

With sun-kissed shores just outside your doors, the beach is always within reach. If you’d prefer to stay on dry land, the idyllic forests of Nisene Marks State Park (one of Santa Cruz County’s 14 state parks) is just a stone’s throw away. For additional attractions, travel just 30 miles to the famous Monterey Bay Aquarium and 15 minutes to the century-old Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. The boardwalk park’s wooden roller coaster and 1911 carousel are historic landmarks and sugar seekers can stop by Marini’s candy shop and pick up some famous fudge.

You’ll find even more entertainment onsite. Set on six beautifully landscaped acres, guests can make a splash in the heated pool and Jacuzzi or enjoy a scrumptious meal with room service.The little ones will love the Japanese Koi pond and cascading waterfall with arch bridge while the local hot spot is at the hotel’s lounge, where live entertainment entertains Thursday through Saturday.

“Our goal at the Seacliff Inn has always been to create a comfortable and inviting vacation destination,” Marketing Director Jason Iwatsuru said. “I would love to have your family enjoy our hospitality and make us their home away from home.”

Adding to the at-home experience is the daily complimentary hot breakfast buffet, which includes waffles, eggs, sausage, cereals, whole fruit, oatmeal, yogurt, muffins, fresh coffee, and juices. Delight in dining at Severino’s Bar & Grill, delicious California Continental Cuisine that has won the “Best Professional Manhattan” at the Annual Santa Cruz Clam Chowder Cook-Off & Festival ten years in a row.

“Our home in Aptos is truly a gem and we have a lot to offer,” General Manager Debbie Parson said. “What we do, we do it right, and with passion. Those who have yet to visit, we hope you come see for yourself why our guests continue to stay loyal and stay with us.”

Wander just off-site and find even more fun. PGA-rated golf courses, surfing spots, and wineries are never far away. In fact, Santa Cruz Mountains is one of the oldest wine regions in the United States, is home to more than 70 wineries, and is known for award-winning pinot noir and other wines. The resort is also within walking distance of the historic Cement Ship at Seacliff Beach and joined to the Seacliff Beach pier, a two-mile beach set at the foot of sandstone cliffs. The sandy shores are perfect for swimming, fishing, bicycling, camp fires, and rollerblading. 

With so much to do onsite and off, Best Western Seacliff Inn showcases all the California coast has to offer, from beach to boardwalk.
