Smaller Hotel had comfortable beds and furniture while also being very clean. Even though we came to visit the ocean and the Hotel was not on the ocean it was a very short drive to the ocean and also a very short drive to downtown Santa Cruz which is also very nice.

Santa Cruz was a 2nd stop for my 2 week trip to California. Drove from LA area so needed a place to get some rest close to where I would be working for the 1st night. I booked this hotel because it was the least expensive of the nationwide (,in my opinion, better) brands, at the time. The day I... More

Santa Cruz was our first stop in a two week trip to California. After a long day traveling this hotel gave us what we needed, a place to rest our head to a pillow. The mattresses were too soft for my liking, felt a bit like a giant marshmallow but my traveling companions had no complaints. The room was clean.... More

We stayed at this hotel for a few days in July and it is a good option as it is quite inexpensive (vs. other hotels in Santa Cruz), well located (3 minutes from downtown with the car - plenty of parking in downtown) and in good condition. Also, the free breakfast was very good. The only watchout is the hotel... More

In general it was decent, and I used AAA discount so it was one of the better deals at less than $200 a night. Hotel was clean, complementary wi-fi, continental breakfast. The thing I didn't like was that the room was ok at first glance, but I tried not to look too hard at anything. The comforter had stains, and... More

Our goal was to bike in Santa Cruz and we succeeded. The hotel is located a few miles from the boardwalk but VERY close to a great bike path which goes directly to the Boardwalk. There are many bike lanes throughout Santa Cruz and Capitola which make it easy to travel. The hotel is very clean and their breakfast has... More

This hotel was a great value for the money for that area. It's an expensive area. We all slept well with no noises in the night. The room had a mini refrigerator/microwave/coffee maker. The sink was outside of the bathroom so the other person could be getting ready while 1 person was showering, etc. We really enjoyed the hot breakfast... More

The hotel is nice and I like staying there sometimes but when i book Friday or Saturday it is usually $100 more per night. whoa! The breakfast is pretty good. My daughter liked the sausage and potatoes. The eggs smell like farts though and the bananas were green. But other than that pretty good. There was no high chair for... More

We were on a little road trip, and Santa Cruz was on our radar. This motel was easy to find, clean, a little dated, but secure and we felt at ease. The boardwalk was further than what we had wished for, but not too bad. Staff was very pleasant and professional.

For the price, it doesn't get much better, or cleaner, than this in santa cruz. Location to boardwalk is not grand, but who cares. Secure place too, didn't feel like I had to prop a chair against the door.
