Breakfast was decent.
- close to the City, the beach and a lot of bars and restaurantes - Clean an comfortable room - nice staff
The breakfast (waffles and cakes) was not our favourite, we prefer more european style like bread and such stuff;-)
If anything it would be the location
It was at a great location. The front desk was helpful and quick with the service. The value provided for the money paid was probably beyond expectation
We had no complaints obviously due to the fact that we needed a place to stay over night, however having made reservation before arriving prior too I was a little disappointed with the stay. Arrived early so we couldn't check in until 4 which was fine. We returned at 4 to check-in only to find out our room wasn't ready so we settle with another room. We had reservation for a queen size bed, unfortunately the queen size is a standard size bed. According to staff that's was a queen size. Very disappointed with the price We paid for only to find out that queen size bed here are standard size elsewhere. Room size was a little crowded as well.
Location and breakfast
Friendly, helpful staff
They allow pets!- The dog next door was left alone, and of course, yipyipyip- constantly to my displeasure.
Loved the distance to the beach and boardwalk, the private location we had with a little patio with table and chairs. The clean laminate floors, the decor was nice. The fridge was a good size for storing our cold drinks and snacks. I will come back with my dogs when I want a Santa Cruz getaway with my fur family.
WiFi didn't work, said they were working on it. Bathroom sink was clogged and very slow.
No, WiFi in room. Bike is free only 1 hour. Additional is $10/hr.
Black mold behind the mirror and no wifi...Need I say more !
me and my fiance went to santa cruz for new years and the hotel was walking distance from downtown and not very far from the boardwalk. great price and overall great room. also liked that it had good tv and a flat screen instead of those 80s bulky tvs places usually have.
nothing really, except the bed couldve been a bit more comfy but other than that everything was great.
Wifi not working in room
This motel is a good value, it's affordable, clean and shows signs of interior upgrades and care. It's not luxury but it's completely acceptable.
The first room I was given was unkept, in disarray and not clean. I was quickly give another acceptable room. I presume the first was mistakenly not cleaned following the previous user. Never been here before so don't know if my experience was a first or if it's common. I do know the alternative room I was given was fine.
Nice & Clean.
Chage me additional $10.00 more. I ask why? Parking..... This is bad way to doing business.
Clean and good location
The staff needs to pay more attention when checking people out. I had a schedule late check out and they were trying to push out even though we had already checkout and turned keys into front desk. Received a call not even at 11:00 saying they need to clean the room and we need to checkout when we had already done so.
Have stayed lots of places including more luxurious, but for location, value, friendliness, amenities, breakfast - wow! The icing on the cake was free bike rental!
Location, people, quiet
Automatically charging for parking when the lot was seriously empty, wifi down almost the entire visit, nice Keurig coffee makers in room, but we couldn't get the first or the replacement one to work, the free breakfast in lobby ended at varying times--they shut down well before 10:30 a.m. one day.
Staff was not helpful
NO WORKING INTERNET
Short walk to the boardwalk and beach.
Cost of $25 per night for a small quiet dog is expensive.
Wifi was dead the whole time were were there, room wasn't the cleanest, staff was nice but inefficient. Breakfast was so so.
Flat screen tv and satellite. Keurig coffee in room, as well as in lobby with continental breakfast. Room was clean and quiet. The price was more than fair for the room and very close to the beach
Very cramped parking lot which they charged 10 dollars,ice maker was broken
Clean and good location, between beach and downtown.
Bathroom was super small, continental breakfast was not worth the time. Parking lot super small
