Nice little spot in Santa Cruz. Price is good. My room was nice and clean. The rainfall shower head sucked. Water came from maybe half of the little holes and they spryed in what ever direction they wanted. Mattress not so great either. Fire alarm at 430 am was a nice touch as well. Over all, very nice place. I'm sure my experience isn't the norm. 3.75 ☆

We stayed her for one night to visit a family member in the area. The Rio Vista Inn was very close to the beach; we just parked and started walking. We were at the Boardwalk in 5 minutes, so it is super convenient. We had Room 8 on the second floor and it was very cozy (which means very small). It fit our needs perfectly, but if you plan to stay more than one night, I would suggest a bigger room. Also, park in the main lot as the overflow lot was very hard to get out of. Loved the free drinks (water, soda, coffee). There was a gas fireplace in the room, which was a nice touch. Also had robes in the closet and a mini refrigerator in the room. WiFi was strong. The Victorian home is very charming and I would definitely stay here again for another quick trip to Santa Cruz.
