Definitely no frills here but it was clean and close to the beach. If you are a light sleeper you'll have trouble here - you can hear everything in adjoining rooms and hallways. Staff is nice and helpful. Didn't use the pool but there were a lot of people that did. Santa Cruz has really declined - the neighborhoods are... More

Just disgusting. A VERY run down hotel in a VERY seedy location. I knew this was not going to be pretty as we passed a dried up pool/water feature closed in with a collapsing fence. But when we opened the door to our room I was horrified. The smell - urine; the carpet - stained and gray with dirt; the... More

Area is not very safe. We were told multiple times to keep an eye on our stuff because of the "crackheads" in the area. Thankful for the heads up though. Room not very clean.

I didn't ask for our room to be cleaned the second day. The third day I did though. They changed our beds but didn't leave any towels or toilet paper! The desk staff was more than helpful in getting my things. They are friendly. It is close enough walking distance to the beach/boardwalk and that's really nice.

A nice hotel that is inexpensive and close to the boardwalk (5-10 min walk). The pool was heated and great for my 3.5 year old and within eye/shouting distance were 2 spas. The rooms are sufficient and to be expected with the price. It slept 4 (2 adults and 2 children) well. The free breakfast was great and consisted of... More

We stayed 1 night at the Days Inn last weekend, for my son's Baseball Tournament. The room was not ready @ check in, per staff, because one of their Dryers broke, and there were no towels available. They stated that rules dictate we could not check in until the Room had towels. They were very nice, but I was not... More

I very much enjoyed my stay at Days Inn, Santa Cruz. I booked through the Days Inn reservations line and encountered extreme difficulties so I had a bad taste coming in, but the friendly staff quickly changed this around. They were able to accommodate my request for a pool/boardwalk view and were able to assign my room right next to... More

A decent property close to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk. Only problem - we arrived about 15 minutes before the official 3 p.m. check-in so room wasn't ready; no big deal, we just headed to the Boardwalk. When we got back at around 10 p.m., there were no towels in the room and one of the bedspreads had a dime sized... More
