I thought staying with a chain meant they would be up to their normal standards. Boy were we wrong. They allowed us to check in early but told us to come back at 2 (the normal check in time), no problem. We came back at 2:45 and the room door wasn't closed so I asked the housekeeper if it was...

The manager was rude because I am under 21 and you have to be 21 and over to check in. I told him that reservation services didn't tell me that detail and he said "can't you read?" Otherwise, the room was clean enough (small stains on the blanket so I slept on top of the comforter) but it was a... More

Nice location to visit the beach on Santa Cruz. Easy walk to the boardwalk and using the footpaths to down town. It was nice to be able to park and walk because the traffic in and out around the beach front was crazy.

What do you except at these prices? Clean, basic, some things just sort of work (like loose light switches), thin walls, not super gross dirty but shower heads need cleaning etc. Free basic breakfast with no place to eat. Never used pool. Over all it was functional. I spent one night, would probably not stay here for more than two... More

there are two super 8 motels across from each other, one is new , the other one is old and decrepit, and should not be allowed to carry the name of your company . we paid $ 100 dollar for a room that at best should cost $60, being in California and all. The walls are paper thin and I... More

I stayed here one night and whilst it was one of the cheapest places, it was still very expensive at over $100. The accommodation was clean and comfortable however relatively basic. Clearly what you are paying for here is the area and the closeness to the Boardwalk, which is less than a 10 minute walk away. There was a large... More

Half the lights in my room did not work, and when we told the management they did not fix them. The manager barely spoke English and did not know how to split our bill into two receipts. We were kept awake by the police in the parking lot the first night. Internet was so slow it might as well not... More

The location of this motel is superb. Great access to the boardwalk, carnival, and beach. All are within easy walking distance so there is no need to drive and wrestle with parking and additional parking fees. The motel's staff was very nice and friendly to talk to. As for the rooms, they are outdated and could use some maintenance. For... More

I called in ahead just to make sure we can check out an hour late at 12pm since we checked in very late at 1130pm Friday. I spoke with Rick (which I do not even think that is his real name also had a very heavy accent) he stated that it was ok as long as it was before 12.... More
