Don't waste your time in santa cruz, lots of homeless people... Not safe on the streets
Breakfast bar was not in a suitable place aka office that was pretty much a dislike for me and my family.Price was high for a two night stay but over all my family had a good visit.
It would be better to advertise breakfast so people would not factor that into their choice. White bread and a sugar cereal neither of which makes start to a kids day. The people were having a rager in the room next to us and nobody did anything. They charged extra for a 3 & 4 year old.
Bed Loud traffic noise
What a disappointment! We paid 226 for a room that was worth maybe $50- we could have done better at Motel 6. The upstairs room was leaking water into our room, the dresser was missing a knob, the bedside lamp almost came off the wall when I turned it on, there was chipped paint, stained floorboards, cracked tile, a half empty shampoo offered..the list goes on. I had already paid in advance, other waise we would have bolted. What a complete dump.
We had a room next to the laundry room. It was noisy. room was nice, though. no carpet on the floor??
Very comfortable bed
Shower floor looked dirty
The location made it easy to get to the boardwalk and pier.
The pool was not heated. The disabled room was not well maintained. There were holes in the wall and it was not cleaned very well. They were stingy with the towels. For the price, I expected more.
Hair dryer didn't work
they charged a hidden (quote read 'the fine print'): 1) service charge $7.30 2) city tax $2/person In Addition to booking.com total cost
One of the quietest places I've ever stayed. There is a trolley you can catch a short distance from there, and it's only .25 to ride down to the wharf and boardwalk.
The breakfast was toast and cereal, no place to sit and eat. It's at least a mike to the boardwalk.
Rooms were run down, needs renovation. Blankets was very old and had what looked like cigarette burns on it. Breakfast was a joke in my opinion.
The room was very wide and comfortable
The room was very dark with only 2 side lamps It was very noisy because of the near by main road
We felt the facilities and our room were run down & for that kind of money I don't think we received enough for the price of the room.
Met our needs Pool
Continual breakfast was toast or cereal. Cigarette butts on ground.
When I walked into the door going into the stairway the first thing I noticed was the clean smell I was impressed and the room with the king size bed was spacious The little frig and microwave fit our needs just right.
I would definitely stay again.
What I don't like is this was the 2nd property you advertised as having breakfast when they do not offer breakfast. I appreciated that I was able to leave 1 day earlier than planned and they did not charge me for it.
air condition not good, safe didn't work sink plug didn,t work
Workers where nice
Everything was old needs upgrading towels had stains and where old
I am fine with old hotels but the sink faucets need to be replaced.
Pool; staff; location, and close enough to walk to Boardwalk and downtown area. Beds were older but comfortable enough. Rooms clean, and ours had a nice balcony to sit on.
Located in a semi-rougher area of town. "Continental" breakfast offered only consisted of cereal, bread to toast. No other choices. The hotel is well kept on the outside, but really needs to be remodeled (e.g. Baseboards, draperies, old stained tile showers).
facilities worn and need repair old TV sets
Place was clean restaurants in walking distance nice pool decent breakfast we would stay here again
Whole place needs to be upgraded. Have too much competition out there. Coke machine didn't work - did not get refund until the next morning. Are you serious? WIll NEVER STAY at your motel again. Thanks
