We booked in here for 1 night but we loved the location & the cleanliness so much that we stayed another night. The staff are lovely, breakfast adequate & the pool is great. The only downside of this hotel is the WiFi, which is very sporadic so if you don't need it I would definitely recommend it.

My husband and I had stayed here several years ago, and it was a good experience, so we headed back here when we found ourselves on a return trip to Santa Cruz. We preferred the second floor level, but our friends who came with us have mobility issues, and they were very happy with a first floor room near their... More

It was a good stay, nice staff and service. My wife, baby and I stayed in the suite room 310, the room had a musty smell upon entry. It wasn't until the next morning that I noticed the mold on the walls of the walk in shower. I was in a hurry to get out so I did not mention... More

Clean, spacious, pool on site, free wifi, fridge in room. Didn't have time for breakfast, but there looked more than your usual motel had to offer. Toiletries in bathroom, lots of clean towels, places to eat near by. Comfy bed. Had a great nights sleep.

Great location near beach, wharf, downtown, and public transportation. Rooms are fairly quiet. Rooms have fridge microwave and plenty of electrical outlets. Management has not adequately maintained the place. It needs some TLC. The room is large with comfortable beds. Breakfast is available in a large room by the pool and is adequate. Parking spaces are sparce and small; difficult... More

I forgot my Fitbit on the bed after our stay. I called 2 hours after we checked out when I realized I left my Fitbit. The office staff told me to call back at three o'clock because our room had not been cleaned. When I called back at three o'clock they told me to call back the next day so... More

High price for what you get. Good location but that's it. Normal motel room. Nothing extra. Too many kids but of course spring break. Hot tub didn't work at 8:30 pm. They close at 9:00 pm. Too much chlorine. The water was gray. Breakfast terrible. No one from staff in breakfast room. No milk until I checked the fridge, which... More

Location was good for walking to the Boardwalk. Breakfast was adequate. As others have mentioned, noise travels, but not a deal breaker. The hotel could use a little more TLC by replacing rusty door hinges and faucet fixtures.

I've stayed at this hotel at least 4 times now, most recently just last week. It's been a great experience each time. Rooms are very nice, staff is friendly and helpful, there isn't a lot of noise and the location close to the pier can't be beat. As I have family living in the area, I've stayed at numerous hotels...

On entering, the room smelled strongly of chemical cleaners. I later found that the tub was covered in a slimy solution. I think the cleaners sprayed a think, clear cleaning solution on the tub, and forgot to wash it off. The door security lock didn't work. The hair dryer was broken ( yes, I could have called the front desk... More
