Score from 230 reviews Very good
The room was large, and bathroom over sized. Location was great and parking secure. Electronic locks.
There is no sound barrier for upper floors. I had an elephant in the floor above and a party on the floor diagonal that lasted until early in the morning. Prices so low lots of young kids partying. TV did not work, no cable
OK location, but no bugs sighted as mentioned in other reviews.
Area outside room where ice machine located was extremely mucky. Room not cleaned or tidied during stay. Bins not emptied. Overall a bit dowdy!
location was good but that was it
toliet clogged up each and everytime you flushed. Room Smelled like cat urine. Bedspread was disgusting. Changed rooms and the next one was even worse . rooms so small like a cracker box. not even a closet to hang clothes. Got refund and went across the street to the Comfort Inn, it was wonderful over there.
the location was fantastic!
very expensive, for what you got. the parking lot filled up very fast, so don't move your car.
refrigerator microwave walking distance to the boardwalk/beach
We stayed one night Labor Day weekend. This place is no Venetian or Bellagio with luxurious amenities, but it was clean (no bugs, no stains, no rust in bathroom), comfortable (bed sheets clean, and pillows surprisingly comfy), and VERY close to the boardwalk. I'd say some parking spaces for the boardwalk are further from the beach than this motel. It was great simply because we can come from the beach, wash off, and go back out again for the evening. Staff was nice, not mean or rude like other reviews have stated.
nothing. it was great for the price especially on labor day weekend and being very close to the beach.
Not even a five minute walk to the boardwalk, fair price considering a 3 day weekend
They put the breakfast away too early, and it's in a really cramped office
The short walk to the Boardwalk was great. The room was very clean.
The price was very high because of the close proximity to the Boardwalk. Nothing on this property has been updated in many many years. This was very apparent in the bathroom. I would probably look for something with a little better upkeep for this price.
Convenience, efficient, helpful staff
Tired decor, carpets old and had an odour, whilst staff were helpful they were fussy and intrusive. Sub-standard for the price which was expensive.
Excellent location, staff & wifi!
Location. Wi-fi. Pool
Was not allowed to check into our room until 3:30pm.
Close to boardwalk. Staff friendly and try to please.
Breakfast area way too small. Almost impossible to move if more that two people in area. Bath tubs slippery, no bath mats. Bathroom floor sticky. Supplied shampoo, no conditioner. No iron. Room adequate but dusty.
The room was clean and comfortable. The bed was comfortable and the staff were kind and friendly. There is a well maintained pool and the breakfast was fine--make your own waffle press was a nice touch. The location is good as it is about a block to the Boradwalk. It is an older motel (refurbished) and not the Ritz, but compared to other prices (I used a discount travel site), it was fine.
I liked being able to walk to the beach and Board. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The beds were very comfortable.
I didn't like the breakfast choice. I think they could have added a couple more items that had protein in them. The bathroom tub/shower was terrible. The shower head pipe was coming off the wall. The baseboard was not finished.. They needed grab bars in the shower because it was slippery. I had to re-connect to the wifi often.
Staff was amazing. CLEAN place. Staff let me park my car in lot early in morning before check-in time and walk with my niece down to the beach so I didn't have to pay for parking. Decent sized fridge & microwave in the room. Excellent value for the normally dingy 'Super 8' name.
Definitely Booking.com assisting with the last minute details of booking this location!! The Super 8 hotel was soooo close to the boardwalk and ocean- a definite plus! I appreciated having the refrigerator and microwave in the room.
The continential breakfast was not in a clean or sanitary location- food area was crowded at the doorway of the tiny front desk location. The commode was sluggish in the room where we were staying, but when asked for assistance- I was told by staff to retrieve the plunger from behind the ice machine, and would I mind using it to unstop the commode. I know how to use a plunger, but I have never stayed at a hotel where the staff did not assist with the facilities on their property!
Closeness to the pier and downtown area
Typical Super 8. But you could not fault the location, Just a block and a half from the boardwalk.
The walls were extremely thin and we could hear the occupants arguing and getting progressively drunk all night long. During this time, young children were crying, almost non-stop as the adults argued and partied. We didn't call the manager because we thought it would end up being detrimental to the children. I wish I had called Santa Cruz Police Dept (hind sight is 20/20). When I discussed this with the manager he reluctantly agreed to reduce the bill by $50 buy AmEx indicated that the entire amount was processed by the hotel this morning. Plus, the auto switch for the overhead light in bathroom didn't work and there was black mold on floor near tub. Booking.com Judy & Tony were courteous in helping us initially.
Not a thing staff was just rude as hell and its not a place kid friendly. Managers wanted total.silence from the children and they were not loud. Over priced delapidated motel.
Everything nothing was good about it from.time of check in until.check out was disappointed that i chose such place.
The management staff was awesome people. They were an indian couple at the desk. They were helpful and even went out of ways when we went for breakfast as they offered the tea (chai ) which they have made for themself..
I think the rates were a bit high for the season, I went in winter and paid around 45% more than their regular rates..
Staff was polite, room was clean and comfortable.
Odd smell inside the room
