Whilst our room was adequate, and comfortable, it needed re-decorating - for example there was some... More

Unfortunately there aren't many hotels to choose from during Graduation Weekend in Santa Cruz, Ca otherwise I would have moved to another hotel RIGHT AWAY! I paid $800 bucks for 4 nights at one of the crappiest hotels I've ever stayed in. As I was checking in, another guest was there complaining about her room. (Should have been my warning... More

A decent hotel in the beach district of Santa Cruz, but with some challenges. Some of the rooms have been redone, some haven't, we got one that hasn't been redone and it was OK, roomy enough and facing the street. The heater was being worked on, though we did not need it for the weekend, if needed we would have... More

The people next door had the wall heater fall off the wall.... More

The motel was in a creepy area and the staff was very rude to us. We arrived pretty late at night to find out that the heat did not work in the room - The manager wouldnt help us and after being cold all night, we where looking forward to a nice hot shower. The only problem was that there... More

Pro's: Inexpensive place that allows pets in pretty much any room (Reason #1 for staying here) Walking distance from the boardwalk (Reason #2) Large showers New televisions Con's: Everything else. Management is sporadic and often do not communicate (kept asking me to confirm items that I had repeatedly told i.e. amount of guests, pets, vehicles, etc - and then increased... More

We were only stuck here becuase of having a pet along and not planning far enough ahead. They havent drained the pool, but that would be the only thing this family spends money on. Our bed sat on blocks of wood, dirty cigarette burned bed spread, torn carpet, holes in walls. They have poor tenants living downstairs in garage spaces... More
