With its sublime climate and long stretches of beaches, Aptos has long been a draw for out-of-towners. When it comes to local accommodation, the Best Western Seacliff Inn is the largest hotel in the Aptos area. It offers free breakfasts for guests, as well as free WiFi. It also has a nicely landscaped center courtyard with a Koi pond, and features a heated swimming pool. Guests often complain about “paper thin” walls in the rooms, which can be a problem given the location next to the freeway and sometimes other guests can of course get rowdy – so man of them are, after all, on vacation.
Aside from the fact it’s right on the freeway, the Seacliff Inn has a prime location – less than a mile from Seacliff State Beach and the Forest of Nisene Marks State Park. It’s also practically across the street from the Rancho Del Mar Shopping Center, and it is literally right across the street from the Aptos History Museum.
The hotel is one of the few places in town with decent meeting space, and for this reason The Aptos Chamber of Commerce holds its monthly meetings at the Seacliff Inn.
The Seacliff Inn is also home to Severino’s Bar and Grill, which is a favorite for many locals.
