I don't think you can beat this location & quality. Our room was beautiful, our bathroom was huge (room 514). Our son loved the pool. The beach and boardwalk are literally down the stairs. The staff and especially Morgan was very helpful. A few things that could be improved - we had to go out by the reception area to... More

Great location, parked the car and was able to walk to wharf, Boardwalk, and beach. Clean room, great decor! Will definitely be staying here again. The view was amazing! could hear the sea lions and wave crashing throughout the night, so relaxing.

Great place, friendly attentive employees made me feel welcome. Excellent location, the fire pit is fantastic on a cool coastal evening. Easily walkable to both the boardwalk and the wharf. Clean and comfortable. Will recommend to friends.

My family of 4 stayed in one of the street level rooms with beach view in August for 4 nights. The location was great- right on the beach but still walkable to downtown. We were there Tuesday to Saturday and it definitely got busier as the week went on. So consider a different room if you want more quiet -... More

My second visit a year after first having stayed here was just as enjoyable. Perfect location. View of ocean. Quiet and friendly. Home away from home. Parking was good and the sea bridge with its restaurant (some very good) is in walking distance. Fine beach with Volley Ball courts.

Been staying here for many years. Most of the time we ask for the very front rooms that you can sit out on the deck and people watch. The only downfall for that is late at night you still have a little traffic,the train that comes right in front and the garbage trucks doing there thing. My suggestion is the... More

Booked this after reading its reviews op tripadvisor. Few weeks ago we checked it on google street view and that made us worry a bit, since it didnt look very nice. But when we arrived we were pleasantly surprised. I guess the street view pictures were from the old motel. It was absolutely amazing. Staff was very helpful, recommended some... More

The location of Beach Street can't be beat. Just across from the beach/boardwalk. We had a pool/patio room which was perfect as we have a 9 year old who loves water. Everything was very clean in the room and surrounding facilities. Many nice touches throughout. We will make this our "go to" place to stay in Santa Cruz. Worth every... More

We booked a 2 rooms cabana suite (room 505) on the top floor of the Hotel near the pool. - We new that there was not going to be any view but our windows were facing the parking lot behind the hotel. So there was noise until late at night from people talking on the parking lot. - there was... More

We are sorry to hear that your stay was disappointing. It is our sincere hope that every guest gets what they're looking for in their Santa Cruz vacation. Our prices do tend to the higher side of local accommodations, but we strive to match that with value. We do only have the one suite with 2 completely separate bedroom spaces.... More

This little gem is right across the street from the Santa Cruz boardwalk. Just to the right of your view (if you have an ocean facing room) is the Santa Cruz pier, with it's several really good restaurants and some shops, all with the same merchandise as every other shop in this region which made us laugh! Straight ahead is... More
