Their separate 2 bedrooms with Queen beds, perfect for us and our two grandsons
rooms are clean, location is good, staff are nice, breakfast included.
wifi not very good
Location, Rooms layout
Everything was good.
I love that the room is actually two rooms. Every time we visit Santa Cruz we stay there. It's quiet, friendly staff, and accommodating to all our needs. I think the value is fantastic for the room you get and the location.
I honestly have stayed there a handful of times and I can say that I don't have anything bad to say about the place.
The parking no space
The bathroom was large and spacious and newly refurbished.
I need to use the whole internet which means port 22 for my business. Since port 22 was not open I couldn't do the work I needed to do.
Walking distance to boardwalk
1. First impression was not inviting..smell of spicy curry food when I opened the office door. 2. Charged $10 for addtl person. When booking the reservation, the number of guests defaults on 2 which is the maximum as the only option. I reserved a room with 2 queen beds for family of 3. Keep in mind, each bed is for one person or you'll be charged. So two beds is for two people. They also charge for kids. None of these info where displayed on booking.com website. 3. Breakfast is a joke! madeliene cookies, mini cinnamon rolls and individual packed pastries. coffee and orange juice didn't taste fresh. 4. bedroom door couldn't close - top hinge screws were missing. 5. refridgerator not working 6. u pay for ice
Price, bathroom, and location to Boardwalk
Hard to find initially, small room, cramped parking
Location and cost
Light bulbs -lamps didn't work, minimal coffee supplies, minimal breakfast, having to pay for ice
I liked the location because it was close to downtown and the Boardwalk. It was quiet and clean. The breakfast was very good.
The traffic noise.
Friendly staff and decent parking. Bedding and towels were clean.
Standing water in the kitchen, coming from an unknown leak. Very noisy street. Beds were standard, pillows hard Remote was broken and did not have working batteries. Carpet in closet was unfinished. Heating was not controlled with thermostat. Only one coffee pod for a two night stay. Breakfast was not served until 8:30am??
The location was great, short drive or walk to the beach. Breakfast was nothing speacial but nice start to the day.
The staff was a bit unfriendly and nochalant. Everything needed to be asked separately (e.g. breakfast time and place, wifi password, map of the area).
We're a young couple living in San Francisco looking to get out for the weekend at the very last minute and for a reasonable price. Everything was just fine for what we needed, especially for the price. The staff was friendly, our room was comfortable, and we felt safe. It is a motel, after all, so we didn't expect anything over the top - just something normal and reasonable for us to stay for a night. It was perfect for just that.
that the room had a blow dryer, iron, ironing board, mini coffee pot and the bathroom extras such as shampoo, conditioner and plenty of towels.
That 150 was taken off my card for reservation and had to be refunded a week later, which took away from our vacation money cut it a bit short.
Locations is what I love most about this place. Very clean and organize.
Nice bathroom. Bed was comfortable. Staff was nice. Juice etc for breakfast were welcome. Early check-in for $10.00.
Window out to parking lot - lights on all night. Room smelled very musty. One review said microwave and refrigerator worked. We didn't have either. Room was tiny...cdn't get past corner of bed because table/chair were there. No light over table. No way to see sunrise or sunset.
the lady at the counter wouldn't print one single page (voucher) for us! we found this very unflexible
Clean and tidy, everything worked, such as the fridge, microwave & hair dryer
Older peeling furniture, no flat screen TV
Loved the bathroom!!!!!!!!
The ridiculous complication of trying to pay with travellers cheques (or any form of payment) The pitiful excuse for a breakfast The shear pointlessness of only having wifi reception in the middle of the car park. My friend struggled to park the car (may not be hotel's fault) No hot tub
Location was great. Lady desk agent was agreeable. Bathroom was nicely upgraded.Could have paid less to stay elsewhere but we booked here because they said our stay included "breakfast." Our plan was to get up early, eat breakfast, and walk down to the boardwalk. We'd spend a couple of morning hours walking the beach and then walk back to the hotel and check out. We would recommend, but bring your own breakfast if sugary snacks, cold cereal and really sub-par coffee aren't the way you start your normal day.
Unfortunately when morning came, we discovered there was no protein (excepting the milk in your coffee or cereal) offered - an important part of any breakfast which meant that rather than leaving our car in the lot until noon as planned, we had to drive anyway to find breakfast elsewhere. So we ended up not taking advantage of the motel's costlier proximity to the beach. The bedspread was unusually unattractive. Room was clean but small and very awkward to navigate. TV was small and old school, but didn't care because naturally we weren't there to watch TV. Ice machine cost 25 cents. Weird, right? But I get it - the water shortage and all..
Was an easy 5 minute walk to boardwalk. The double room we had was great
Our room had a full size kitchen but no dishes or pans so if you are renting a room with a kitchen shouldnt it have all needed. Not convient if you have to lug from home
