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

Ok motel with good location to Boardwalk, good parking and a pool area as well. Good stay in Santa Cruz and ok value for money. We would stay here again. Staff was good and breakfast was provided. Good coffee.

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

I agree with most of the other reviewers. This place is just ok to stay one night and leave. Santa Cruz itself is a city that can't get anything quite right and is known for it's hippy trashyness and this motel fits it well. The good is that the price is relatively low, only compared to some others around it;... More

Service was very good, room clean with 3 beds, my granddaughter was very happy to have her own bed.. All of us were surprise about the location, service, and room size. Parking is a little bit small.. the people upstairs were walking too loud .. But we are definitely going back to Santa Cruz and this hotel is our hotel... More

The Knights Inn is relatively inexpensive and very close to the Boardwalk. It was the best tradeoff between price, quality, and distance from the Boardwalk. We stayed in the just remodelled "White House" building and the accomodations were superb. The staff was very attentive. Unfortunately, our car was broken into overnight and a lot of stuff was stolen. The hapless... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Reasonable location, apparently safe, our room was clean (although some might find the bathroom a bit awkward). We had room 200B, which made this a better stay, because we basically had our own balcony (it could also be accessed by 200C [?], I think). I'm not sure we would have been as pleased... More

I wasn't expecting much because of other reviews but we loved it. The location was great, room size was perfect, it was quiet at night. The staff was extremely nice. I think it is family owned so I liked that part. Cannot wait to go back. Thanks, Knight Inn!

Thank you for staying with us at our family friendly motel and are really happy to hear that our staff was there to assist. We thrive to deliver a good experience and do succeed most of the time and fail at some point as the reviews show weaker points and areas. We look forward to serving you and your family... More
