This motel is really good value - good sized clean rooms and a great location. The boardwalk is literally 5 mins walk away and downtown 10-15 mins walk max. The breakfast was tastey and free wifi was really handy. Be aware, from September and throughout the winter months the boardwalk is only open at weekends despite what the guidebook might... More

Well, not average in price, fairly high for an 8, but is in a tourist zone. Rooms ok - Motel 8 style - but of two rooms, one had a pronounced bleachy smell - likely after some mildew that shows in bathroom. Clean otherwise, and nice reception people. Breakfast limited, but ok, and has a little outside eating area (the... More

The room looks good, it is very close to the boardwalk and the breakfast is delicious fresh waffles. This being said, there was food left in our fridge when we checked-in, and we saw two coakroaches during our one-night stay. When we reported those issues with the owner, he said that he doesn't understand because ''they already have a company... More

On the last night of our family vacation we decide to stay at the Super 8, Wyndham property in Santa Criz. BIG MISTAKE. The room smelled foul urine. As my family and I started to settle in and watch some TV, my 3 year old screamed because of what he thought was a spider. He showed me where it was... More

1. I walked into the lobby to check in, and got some water from the dispenser, and I was harassed like what are you doing? 2. The room towels are as old as Moses, gray tone, old, rough like sandpaper. 3. Breakfast area was 3x5', not enough room to eat in their lobby, or no trays to take anything up... More

Stayed here for one night in mid june 2014. Pros: Centrally located close to the boardwalk. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Room was clean and spacious. Cons: Beds are something that nobody and everybody can agree & disagree on. But I found the beds pretty hard, so I didn't sleep very well the single night we stayed there. But again,... More

We only chose this motel as the sign said that the rooms had jacuzzis. This is incorrect!!! But by the time we parked the car and got the bags into the room, and noticed there was no jacuzzi bath, the reception guy had gone and put a note on reception. As it was only 1 night we didn't bother. Our... More
