I loved the location and the beach view from room and the friendliness of the staff
I thought the decor was terribly outdated...should let people know they will be using a space heater for heat before reserving room...and have a pet friendly bathroom area since you are a pet friendly hotel across from an un pet friendly beach
This place was awesome !! Beautiful view , right by the beach!! There was a great bar on sight friendly staff ! Had a home like feeling to it ! It was jst a really nice stay and I will definitely stay there again :)
Rooms down front a little noisy but view great
We were given an upgrade to the 'presidential suite' without asking. This room is enormous!!! Could house a whole family long term. It had a fireplace nook, whirlpool bath and full kitchen. Great deck area for watching sunrise. Downside is it's a little further from the sea view than we expected. Great staff and complimentary morning refreshments. Fabulous location right across from the beach and pier.
Quite dated. This place is in such a perfect spot it deserves an upgrade and could be so much more if some money was invested in it. Restaurant and bar area slightly separate and may be under different management but didn't look at all inviting. Garden area very run down. Lots of steps which didn't bother us but may if you have a pushchair or wheelchair.
room was cold
The beach front units have a nice patio/deck for sunrise views and people watching. Good location to get around
The units do need some upgrading. Totally doable if you don't mind the 70s . Everything is older and in some patch or disrepair but still doable. The homeless folks out front may scare some people but they are harmless
It was close to the boardwalk and wharf
Coffee maker didn't work
The staff excels at customer service. Loved the views of the water. Really appreciated the late check out.
Television needs to be updated.

Poor Staff, poor facilities, very old uncomfortable room .
This hotel is really worth travelling for! The best location in Santa Cruz. Literally on the beach, with great views to the pier, ocean and - as an extra bonus: views to both sunrise and sunset from the balcony. It is a cute boutique hotel, and it feels almost like a little piece of the old French Riviera has been cut out and placed in Santa Cruz.
We had amazing views from our room of the ocean. The room was a beautiful, historic room with lots of character.
minimal shower pressure
Location is great. Looking at the ocean from your window is certainly great.
Everything was old and dated, carpet was dirty, bed sheets and towels had stains on them. But that wouldn't be a problem if the price would be adequate, but it wasn't. Way too expensive for what you get.
The location and view across to steamer lane. The glassed in verandah was a delightful spot to read, have a drink and watch the afternoon waves.
Nobody on checkout desk in morning.
What was'nt to like? The staff were pleasant and helpful. The room was amazing. The view was breathtaking, and we were within walking distance to the Boardwalk and the warf. Not to mention the pac garden mall and other great places to eat. I will be staying here again when I return.
The view and the quaint room had a really homey feeling. Only problem, we only stayed one night.
Had to fix cable to TV. Sink didn't drain well. Very minor and worth the effort.
Sea lions on the pier
- noisy air condition on the roof of the restaurant. - staff (Alex and Enrique) are lying to guests... - dirty balcony - worst honeymoon ever..
A great spot and friendly staff. Room is very nice
Perfect location, awesome view. The room was so cute and comfortable. The walk to the beach, wharf and boardwalk was easy.
The location is perfect. Between the pier and boardwalk. Over looks the beach and volleyball beach.
OMG, our room faced the ocean, but when we opened the door we stepped back in time. The whole room was done in hideous floral wall paper. Water stained, dirty beige carpet, and no A/C. Matress should have changed 10 years ago. If you are a young surfer dude, this place would be great due to location.
Located directly across from boardwalk which is wonderful with small children.....convenient lil foot cleaners so you don't track sand in your room and in their drains....beds were comfortable very home like....only small complaint breakfast isn't that great but it is free!! Overall a 9!
Its noisy in the morning but thats to be expexted
Everything was perfect.Our view from the room was beautiful we could see from the boardwalk to the pier and beyond.Just Amazing.Thank you to the staff for being so helpful and polite.We will be back.
The location is fantastic. The surf spots in easy reach. The staff are generally very helpful and friendly. The little breakfast is lovely and simple. The kitchen facilities were fab.
The difficulties getting in touch with reception staff when the desk is in manned
The location and view were great,walking distance to everything.
I know it was a busy weekend for the staff......but our room wasn't cleaned thoroughly when we arrived. Our garbage in the kitchen was full from the previous occupants and just didn't seem it was cleaned very well. Would of been nice for another staff person to check the room before checking in.
