The staff was friendly and check in went smoothly ( I was using points). Our room (pet room-1st floor) was awful. Blinds were destroyed and shattered, sliding glass door had been reworked several times (possible breakins?), no towels....finally asked for towels but they did not have any washcloths. Made coffee early the next morning but coffee pot was broken. Carpet... More

I could write a laundry list of things wrong with this place, suffice it to say that it was a lot of money for very basic, dated and run down accommodations. Pro: The location is an easy walk to the Boardwalk Con: The location is in a sketchy neighborhood, with bums and dope deals. Nice exterior look hides a dated,... More

I took my daughter & niece to Santa Cruz for the weekend and the biggest disappointment, was our hotel. We had a Deluxe 2 qn room, but there was nothing deluxe about it and had I known the neighborhood, I would not have stayed there. - Our room was not ready when we checked in, so we had to wait,...

Our room was clean, and we slept well. Of course, quality of sleep depends on the courtesy of who is staying next to and across from you, but we lucked out. The rooms did seem solid to help keep out sound, which is important and I am sure helped. Our AC and fan worked well. The Manager, Ash, is very... More

My family and I stayed there for a day either after fourth of July. The location is great.it was maybe a 8 minute walk or so from the boardwalk. The staff was friendly and they have a waffle maker for breakfast that's pretty good. Only thing takes a while to do, there only two. I recommend it it's pretty clean.... More

For the money it's not the worst hotel. We stayed in room 209. The AC never worked and the bathroom was disgusting! Bathroom had that orangish slime on the walls mixed with some black hair. None of us have black hair so obviously not ours. Bathrooms don't have ANY circulation at all, probably the reason for that orangish greasy slime... More

When we arrived at the hotel we were greeted with smiles and told we had been upgraded for free; sounded great. However, we entered our room to find stained carpet, broken door/window locks, and the smell of what I assume was urine(this is a pet friendly hotel; something our booking site failed to mention). The mirror in the restroom was... More

This hotel greeted me like I was family. I had had a terrible experience with another hotel and the friendly staff at this hotel changed my view of the chain. This hotel exceeded my expectations. I will definitely stay here again.
