Score from 300 reviews Excellent
Great location, Good free parking with larger parking bays at rear of motel (we had a Chevy Taho).Good sundeck to get some nice photo's of the boardwalk. I would recommend it and stay here again
A/C was faulty and basically useless.But to be fair we didn't say any thing until we left and the staff seemed to be genuinely concerned about it and said it would be fixed before the next person used the room.
It's a cute little motel across the street from the beach & board walk. The outside seems to have recently been airbrushed with various ocean creatures. Sheets are very soft and the towels are big and soft.
It's $20 per night, per pet and there is no place to potty your dog.
Good location close to the Boardwalk/beach Friendly staff
I loved the location right beside the boardwalk. You can walk or cycle easily all around Santa Cruz from here. The staff were very helpful and friendly.
I would have liked a slightly healthier choice for breakfast, maybe some fruit.
The location was great. Amazing views in the morning and night time.
I didn't like the parking situation, there is limited parking and it is very hard to get in and out of the parking lots. There was no coffee maker, no iron, no hair dryer, no ironing board. All those things were available upon request instead of being in the room like they normally are. The continental break fast was just milk or coffee, some cereal, white bread with butter or jelly and some muffins from costco that were cut up in small portions.
The staff is very, very friendly and accommodating. Very nice people.
Pot dealing and smoking in the open on the balcony outside my room while we were inside.
This was one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in. While I do not expect much for 2 stars, I do expect it to be at least neat and clean and if they offer a continental breakfast, then provide a decent one. This place needs to be completing rehabbed.
The location is very close to the boardwalk but far enough not to hear the noise so was excellent. The bed was comfortable & staff was very helpful & polite. The other guests were quiet enough too.
The cleaning gals left bags of trash out in front of the units all day till they were thru witth all their cleaning the first day. I had asked if they could move the trash but they acted like they couldn't understand english. The next day they didn't leave the trash. The continental breakfast was weak & could use a bit more muffins & pastries at least for a bare minimum continental breakfast. The bathroom had hairs on the sticky walls but everything else looked pretty clean.
friendly, accommodating staff.
breakfast was really lame. I was there at 9:45 am and there was no hot water for tea, no poppyseed loaf remaining, no milk, and no orange juice. Staff got whatever I needed, but on both days I had to wait until things were replenished.
Room was clean and beds were comfortable. Great view of Boardwalk and 5 min walk. Good hosts.
Location Front desk staff, both check in and check out very helpful and courteous. Mattress was ok. I would stay here again because of location and reasonable rate.
The pillows were very flat ( too thin ) The complimentary breakfast could have offered just a little bit more. I do appreciate that they did offer one tho'. We did walk to the little store on the next block for a little extra.
Location if the boardwalk fair is your destination...
Small parking spots, poor breakfast, outdated rooms...
Staff friendly and location right across from boardwalk. Outside of hotel had cute paint job going.
Cost was misleading. Website said $140 but ended up paying $640 for two nights. Small rooms and paint job inside is messy. Grounds were very dirty, trash and cigarette butts.
Facilities were very clean and staff was extremely friendly. Close enough to everything to walk.
Ac didn't work and the screen in our room was cut so we couldn't leave the window open.
Dirty, broken down sofa bed with blankets that felt like they had never been washed. Couldn't sleep on it because one corner of mattress was broken and touching floor. We were only there 1 night and the cost was high.
the staff very nice and helpful. everything close by that we needed.
better locks on doors.
The location right across to street from the Boardwalk!
The carpet was filthy and turned my sons socks black! The refrigerator wasn't working when we arrived so we had to wait on someone to come check it out! The walls were stained and just not a presentable room at all!!
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was very close to the boardwalk. The room was ready before check-in time.
The breakfast didn't have much to choose from.
The room was clean, mattresses were clean and comfortable. Location was great for the Boardwalk.
Room smells like cigarettes smoke, even though room state no smoking. Requested first floor but did not get it. Parking spot was way too small.
Location was good, very accessible and easy to find. Initial cost was appropriate until the pet fee of $40 was added on, I did not see any information regarding a pet fee when booking. Nice patio area to sit and relax at.
Parking lot was difficult to use as spaces were too small for larger vehicles. The first room we were given was very run down. There were stains and cigarette burns in the bedspread, the carpet and walls was filthy and there was a very strong scent of an air freshener, not sure what odor it was covering up but it was way too strong. We were given a different room that was better. Had a new laminate floor so no carpet odors were detectable. Walls are very thin, you can hear everything your neighbors are doing. The breakfast amounted to slices of Costco coffee cake and mini boxes of cereal but at least it was free. Would not stay here again.
I loved everything about this hotel. The staff was very helpful and nice. The location was perfect and the room was great for the night we stayed.
The only thing I didn't like was the parking lot. It was very small. Glad I brought our smaller vehicle. My husband also said he wished they had bigger pillows.
the bed , very uncomfortable and old noisy, (you could heard the springs when moving).
First let me say if you are looking for a 4 star hotel in Santa Cruz good luck. The location is second to none, the staff was more than accomodating and very friendly, this is exactly what I have been looking for for a beach motel!! The beds were comfortable the room was clean I love the hardwood flooring!
