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
Hidden fees! You have to pay $20 for parking. Breakfast not served until 9:00!
Upon checking in, the management notified me that there was some sort of a $5 per person fee , and $20 for parking in their parking lot (since I booked the room through a 3rd party) ?! In addition, when coming into the breakfast area at 8am looking for coffee, we were told breakfast isn't until 9:00am ?! , and then we were asked what our room number was and to show him our room key, implying that he diddnt believe we were guests.
1. Friendly staff
1. WiFi was broken "due to bad weather," even though the storm was 2 weeks ago. 2. LOTS OF FOOT NOISE above our room (105), beginning at 7:30am on a Saturday morning (this room is next to the office, so we think it might have been below the hotel manager's residence) 3. We arrived at 3pm, took 30 minutes to check in (couldn't find an available room), then room wasn't ready for us to go into at (at 3:30pm) and we had to wait ANOTHER 30 minutes to get in there 4. I was billed $115 when booking.com quoted $105
The location was convenient and the room was comfortable though older. Employee who checked me in was friendly and efficient.
I had to pay $10 to park because I booked with a 3rd party (Booking.com). Wifi didn't work from 5AM in the morning and there was no response to repeated calls to the office or even knocking on the door. Breakfast was not available at 8:00 as advertised (which is late to begin anyway). An employee finally showed up to start breakfast at 8:10, which was too late for me due to plans for the day.
The staff were very kind and genuinely cared about our pets. There was a storm when we were there and a two feet from our door threat of flooding. The all female staff were willing to accommodate our move to the second floor, but instead, figured out how to drain all the water from walk ways and divert any such threat. With a smile. We stayed downstairs with ease of mind.
Very clean, great style
Wifi wasn't working And cable was iffy with rain
not enough towels; phone broken; had to pay $ fee for parking
I was given a final price on line.... When I Arrived I was given another price ,clerk refused to make any adjustments even though they only had about 8 to 10 rooms occupied.
I have no complaint about the location and room. It was fair to the price. Just I was not happy about the "hidden" fees, which was not shown. The Parking fee $15, the Pet fee $25. Total of $40 was charged after I stayed. If I knew this, I would have picked other motel.
very close to the beach and to downtown; very confortable beds.
You have to pay extra 10 dollars for the car park.
- location, close to Broadwalk - breakfasts - price was good for the quality
