Worth every penny! My room was gorgeous, all marble counter tops, a large fridge, and wet bar. I asked for a microwave for my room and received one promptly. My room was beautifully decorated wtihout being "gaudy." Spacious and quiet! The bubblejet bath was relaxing, the heated bathroom floor even better! Getting to watch DVD movies in my room instead of forking out even more money for "pay per view" movies on the plasma TV was really a nice touch. Best night sleep I've ever had in a motel, very comfortable and the staff was helpful and friendly. Free breakfast was a lot better than other places that I have been to, which normally offer donuts and coffee. I was pleasantly surprised by several types of juices, fruit, and fresh pastry. I'd recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet getaway. I walked to the beach in about a minute and since I was at the motel already, I didn't have endlessly search for a parking place. I do not write reviews often, but this place certainly deserves one!

My wife & I had a most enjoyable stay for a couple of nights in March. The staff were very helpful, the room was spacious and spotlessy clean. We were visiting from Ireland and I must say we found it to be very homely and look forward to a return visit in the future. Denise & Sean Bodie, Dublin, Ireland.

We stayed at Bella Notte for the Santa Cruz to Capitola Wharf to Wharf race. At first we were slightly put off by the price, but there weren't many rooms to be had. When opened the door to our room, it was exactly as the photos depicted on the web site, such a pleasant surprise! Spacious. Clean, clean, clean! Not a speck of dust anyplace, and no cheap motel "feel." My wife absolutely loved the heated bathroom floor and the generous offerings of wonderful toiletries.. We both loved the bed, sheer luxury. Very high end Egyptian cotton sheets, an incredibly comfortable mattress, and wonderful treatments throughout the room, but not gaudy. One of the things we liked the best was the location. No noisy beach boardwalk with screaming children and the all-night road noise. (We made that mistake last year when we decided to stay near the Santa Cruz Wharf.) The quick, pleasant walk (less than five minutes) to Twin Lakes State Beach, with our vehicle safely parked at the hotel was a huge bonus for us! The owner was ever so helpful in recommending places for us to eat. We will certainly recommend Bella Notte to our friends, and we'll most definitely return for another stay. Five Stars!

What a wonderful time. From the heated floor in the bathroom, to the exceptional bed, the attention to detail is amazing. The beautiful room included everything you would ever want. Be sure to eat at the Italian restaraunt across the street called Star Bene. Aldo's for breakfast (ask the front desk for directions) was just great.
