Stayed here for 1 night. Clean standard motel room. The Wi-Fi didn't work. No worries, since we were only there for the one night and I had smartphone data access. The woman behind the desk was really friendly and helpful. They offer a simple, but appreciated complimentary breakfast in the morning. Very good location in relation to the beach, boardwalk... More

Finding a hotel in Santa Cruz is a challenge, especially one with free and AMPLE parking. The value in the Super 8 is absolutely the location (1 1/2 blocks from the Boardwalk) and being able to leave your car the minute you check-in until the day you leave. We stayed here for a weekend in the middle of peak season.... More

This hotel is overpriced, I do not recommend staying here for the $388/night (with taxes), that I paid. Location - 3 stars. Rooms - 2 stars. Swimming pool - 2 stars. Pricing - 1 star. Overall - 2 stars at most.

You know there must be a really bad selection of hotels in Santa Cruz, when the Super 8 comes up as one of the top 10 rated hotels. I am having a hard time understanding the excellent reviews. Hey, I know we weren't staying at the Hilton but for a going rate of $305 a weekend night, ones expectations naturally... More

We stayed here for a weekend during a business trip to San Jose. The couple at the reception are so warm and hospitable, it almost didn't feel like a hotel. The location was superb, a mere 5 minute walk. The breakfast was good. I'd recommend this place any day.

Stayed here with 3 other adults, were impressed. Not fancy but clean and had very friendly and very helpful front desk, the woman helped us with directions and made us feel welcome. There is a great patio area on the top, several tables and chairs and a nice spot to relax. 5 minute walk to the boardwalk. I would stay... More

Stayed in Santa Cruz for a few days for the first time and we picked Super 8. It was near the boardwalk so no need to drive. Staff was VERY friendly and rooms where clean. Plan on coming next summer and we well definitely be staying here again!

First off, do not confuse this hotel with the west Boardwalk Super 8 that's right across the street. We stayed at the east Boardwalk Super 8 three nights ago. It is your average Super 8. But what sets it apart is the owners and staff and the great location. Everyone there was extremely nice and helpful. Although the hotel is... More

This place is in a great location and within walking distance to the boardwalk and downtown. The bed was comfortable and overall the room was very clean. However it is a little out dated and bathrooms could use a makeover. I would stay here again, it was a good value and great location.
