Clean, comfortable room, great location, very friendly, hospitable management and employees, nice guest parking.
The shower head is very short. The temperature and pressure changed multiple times through out the shower. The water faucet in the bathroom leaked onto the counter top. I told the staff and nothing was done about it. The toilet paper was soaked from it.
The location and view from the room
The room kinda sucks. I had to tighten the shower head. The bed is like sleeping on the floor. The in room fridge stays on all night. The walls are very thin, unless you like listening to the room next door having sex or throwing up. The plumbing backs up. The door lock wouldn't work so the owner came to fix it. He did not fix it. He just pulled on the door handle till it worked. His pants were worth more than our door handle. No love in the maintenance of the room.
The view of the pier was great. The proximity to the Boardwalk and the ocean was great.
Just nit picking, but to give a bit of feedback There were two places in the bathroom where a rack had been ripped off the wall. Fixing that and painting it would improve the room / value feel. During breakfast being a bit more attentive, there was a fella that came through with a plate and too the entire bunch of bananas, rolls and oatmeal packages. That left the choices decidedly thin for awhile ( 10 minute wait ).
The location was tops. Not messing about with parking meters to get to the boardwalk was it's own slice of heaven. The noise level was non existent in our stay. We very much appreciated that. The cleanliness was outstanding.
The price jumps up on the weekends.
The view! Breakfast. Helpful staff. Comfortable bed. Fridge a plus.
We had reserved two separate bedrooms, however when we arrived they had only one bedroom in their system for us. Luckily after much convincing and showing our receipt for two separate rooms, they gave us another one they had left... but it showed the front desk lady wasn't happy which put a damper on the mood. Other than that staff was helpful.
The hot tub was AMAZING, and the location was awesome! Beach is a lot closer than it will appear.
Nice location, decent rooms.
Breakfast items that were out were replaced slowly, if at all. Not much choice for breakfast.
Door didn't close all the way and toilet overflowed.
The location and cleanliness of the facility.
They need softer beds. Shower in the room next door made too much noise!
Walking distance to everything, beach, restaurants & downtown. Housekeeping did a fantastic job of cleaning.
Property looks and feels old and run down Windows in the 1st floor are bolted so even at low floors no possibility to open windows. Must be a security issue as normal hotels allow this on low floors.
Locatiin is excellent, close to the pier and beach without all noise related to that
The staff was very, very rude. They yelled at me. I will never stay here nor recommend this hotel again.
Near the beach
Can be a bit run down
Simple room, value, clean, nice basic breakfast, staff willing to help
The garbage and recycling pickup happened, first one and then the other, right underneath our window around 6am, creating quite a slumber-shattering din. The walls are quite thin.
Friendly staff, adequate and comfortable accommodations, free parking, excellent location near the shore within walking distance of the wharf and downtown, reasonably priced.
Location location location
Small double beds,small room, very poor breakfast ,really,large tub of butter shared with all ,knife sticking out of it, also large jar of peanut butter to share, stale little and I do mean little buns , don't bother with the breakfast go else are.
When the temp drops at night and the heater kicks in it is like a jet starting next to your bed.
I had a room with a view and I had a very nice stay.
We come to watch the lighted boat parade.We enjoy this every year and we always stay there.We really like the continental breakfast.
What didn't I like, we were a honey mooning couple excited for Santa Cruz saw beach front motel rooms perfect. Not at all, shoved into a corner room with a great view of the parking lot. Extremely over priced for less than motel 8 quality, no comfort in the bed and the room was less than special. And the breakfast where I thought all the expenses I spent were (since they were obviously not spent on making a nice room) was cheap frosted flakes and cinnamon rolls. I will never stay here again and I don't believe you should. And being my first time on this site and saw that a place like this had a good review I doubt I will use this site either booking.No
Location was nice and large private parking lot.
In breakfast they need to add more stuff
Everything is good they have little kitchen inside the room that is really good with kids very comfortable
I liked all of the stay, the staff was friendly and the breakfast was awesome.
staff were awful, breakfast was disgusting. lock on room stopped working at 730 am desk wanted me to wait until 10 am for someone to fix, girl at front desk would not voluntarily move us she had to call the manager. toilet kept running screen door didn't work. hated this place never again!!!
The breakfast wasn't stocked often enough / had to wait / ask for food. The staff were slow and didn't seem happy to be there, the mini fridge was loud when we were trying to sleep.
Just a quick walk to the beach / boardwalk. When the breakfast was stocked it was with a variety of food.
