The nice couple at the front put my mind at ease. This area isn't the best, but it's location to the Boardwalk is perfect. However, things turned after we got back to our room when we returned from a day at the Boardwalk. The people next door had a full on party, smoking, drinking, yelling and inviting all kinds of...

We searched for a hotel that was within walking distance to the Boardwalk and wasn't going to cost us a fortune so we decided on Aqua Breeze. Location was perfect! My daughter and myself walked to and from the Boardwalk easily and it was safe to do so. You can see the rides from the hotel which added to her... More

while you can see the hotel from the boardwalk, finding a way to access 2nd street isn't easy. once there, they have ample parking. we got there 15 min before checkin and they allowed us to check in and get keys to our room but the cleaner was still in there with her very young son. awkward! so we came...

Ok so I had read some bad reviews about this hotel but could not get out of it and decided to go for it and just experience it. We had no problems at all, check in was good on a busy Sunday and we were glad to get a car park out of the terrible traffic. Everything was fine and... More

We wanted a place convenient and close for our family first visit to Santa Cruz beach boardwalk. It was perfect....right across the street to boardwalk. Most importantly, Kamal and Josephine were very accommodating due to my situation. For that I'm truly grateful. Will definitely be back again.

The location is what drew me to the Aqua Breeze. It really is like a run down motel 6 with very noisy electronic hummmms that really kept me awake. At 3 am after I unplugged the loud fridge, I heard another loud hummmm from outside my room. So, I went out and opened the door to the laundry closet where... More

To begin, check out the dates of the other reviews....they are old reviews. This place has been updated and is very nice for a beachside hotel. We booked a room with two double beds for the two of us for one night, but then decided to go a day earlier and so booked a second night on hotels.com. Turns out... More
