Overall this was a very average motel The bathroom was fine but the shower wasn't very strong Our room stunk of smoke and this didn't go away even with the window open. If we were there for longer we would have asked to move rooms (which we now wish we had as the clothes I slept in now smell smokey)... More

This hotel practices ethnic discrimination. Due to auto trouble my son was in need of a hotel room. I researched and found Aqua Breeze Inn in Santa Cruz. I called and spoke with a young man and he said they had available rooms. I told him my son would be there in five minutes and would pay cash. My son... More

I would like to make it clear that we do not discriminate against any guest based on race, color, religion, national origin, height, or any other basis the reviewer has accused us of. If anyone were to take a look at the diverse make up of our guests on any given day, and you will find this to be undeniably... More

Positives: - good value for money - clean rooms - friendly staff - great location (about 5 mins walk to the pier and beach) Negatives: - rooms a bit tired looking but you get what you pay for I would recommend if you are just passing through (like we were) but probably worth paying extra for a hotel if you...

Never going to be amazing for the price you pay, but staff were friendly and everything was clean. Liked the fact that the place had its own character due to not being affiliated to a particular chain. The patio area was a nice touch.

Dear Guest, I was terribly sorry to hear about your family member losing some of their possessions while staying at our property, and that the police did not respond properly to the situation. I don't know if you wrote this review the moment the incident occurred, but we did in fact review the security video as soon as we heard... More

Great location, friendly staff, good prices. We also brought our dog, for an extra $20 charge, which was well worth it since it can be difficult finding dog-friendly hotels. There are nicer hotels, but you will pay more!

Paid (way too much) for two nights, only stayed one. Walls are paper thin, too much noise, couldn't call the office to complain because the phone didn't work. The two room "suite" is a second room that's a cramped space with a double bed and just barely enough room to walk around. Badly in need of upgrades. Wifi didn't work.... More

I am disappointed that I was misled by tripadvisor reviews and decided to book here, the place is disgusting, there is no excuse for the filthy rooms, brown stains all over the bathroom walls, don't make my mistake, spend an extra 40 bucks and get somewhere clean
