Very nice hotel. Service in bar okay. Asked twice to have patio heater turned on but it wasn't. Hot tub taken over by soccer moms and their kids so there was no way of getting in there. Dangerous for kids under 16 but seemingly irrelevant. Loved the room. Hotel staff excellent

We booked here for one night as a stopover. It was a fabulous experience! Clean rooms, comfy beds, superb breakfast, great jacuzzi and pool. I was pleasantly surprised and was sad we couldn't stay longer! I would love to come back again someday!

Very good value for the price we pay. Very close to the beach and grocery store although its a tired Safeway store. On site restaurant is decent although the free breakfast in the morning could use some improvement . Make sure you read the signs , several dispensers are hot water, not hot coffee- the coffee is in the corner!!

I liked this place a lot, except for the price - August rates are ridiculous in California Santa Cruz area. But I like the place, especially the restaurant. World class dining! Great staff (loved the Hostess Lady-spunky).

We paid a lot for the 2 rooms. But I have to say the property is well maintained and clean. We bought food and ate outside by the pool. The weather was really great. They offer a breakfast buffet and it was very good. There were noisy people that came in to our area in the middle of the night.... More

Nice big room, good wi-fi, lots of TV choices, very nice on-site bar and restaurant. Very pretty bar patio area. The bed was noisy, could turn over without waking up partner. Thin walls but room next door was conference room and they shut down early. Some road noise from neighboring highway.

Positives: The property and rooms are nice, clean. Good balconies or patios, also. But, beware. I am currently in a room with a connecting door. I can hear EVERYTHING next door. Really loud talking and tv echo very substantially.I'm about ready to see if they have a quieter room and it's already 10:15pm. It's like I'm staying in their room.... More

We stayed here one night on our way from San Francisco to LA. Great please to start the Highway 1. The room was clean and nice. And the kids had a great time in the pool. We also had dinner in the restaurant. The food was great and the service perfect. A plus is free parking and wifi.

The staff is just wonderful. I accidentally booked the wrong day. The hotel manager and staff changed my day and gave the just the lovely room. Every room had a balcony that over looked the beautiful pool area. The pool looked like a tropical oasis. The breakfast was so very good. So much to offer, the coffee was the best.... More
