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 As for the rooms, they are outdated and could use some maintenance.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

Spent the weekend in this hotel while in Santa Cruz. It was pretty much what I expected for what I paid. Someplace to sleep while in Santa Cruz. Nothing Special. They did not offer Breakfast until 7:30 a.m. and then the selection was not much. Would I stay again? Probably, like I said it was a place to sleep and... More
