This place was gross even for a budget motel. There were sacs of laundry everywhere, a plunger on the stairs to our room, the fountain was not running and was full of brown sludge and there were things floating in it. Many of the outlets in the room didn't work and one was missing the cover and there were exposed... More

This place is ridiculous! Some of the staff were very rude and jerks! We had two friends come visit during the DAY, and got charged 3 additional people! They didn't even sleep over, I wasn't even aware I got charged because I didn't even get a receipt. I can't even talk to the manager about this because he doesn't want... More

For a 1 star hotel it was clean and in a great area very close to the Boardwalk. Small parking lot with free parking, lots of free street parking also. Belongs to wyndam rewards program. Enjoyable one night stay.

I was expecting a beautiful room by the name of the hotel. We walked in and I could already tell how cheap it was. No counter space, but loved the large shower though the water pressure was very rough. Holes in the wall weren't impressing and its very noisy especially at night. Great location, so close to the board walk.... More

was a great value for the money, had a great spot. the room was located around the side of the building, short walk to the boardwalk, would stay there again, however would not book through the internet, I ended up paying about 50.00 more, instead of calling then directly. should have known better, but the inn was fine.

Had a free day and wanted to spend it at the beach. This place is easy walking distance to the beach and the price was right. This is a really old place. My wife told me that her family used to come here every summer for two weeks in the 1960's. I stayed here 5 or so years ago and... More

We were excited when we checked in because of the words "here are the keys to your suite" We get to our room there was no dead bolt on the door to get into the room, there was no soap or shampoo and the TV did not work, went to the front desk they said they do not provide shampoo.... More

We came across this place via our satnav and as it was nearly 6pm, and as there was a vacancy decided to check in. There was a parking area for cars but the place was a bit dated and in need of some refurbishment. 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
