We were on a road trip and decided to stay in Santa Cruz at 11:30pm. We used Expedia Mobile App to make reservation and paid in full. By the time we arrived, which is 20min later, the hotel did not receive any reservation from Expedia. Expedia said it was a system malfunction and suggested a refund. The hotel manager -... More

I was a little leery when booking this room as it is an older motel and some of the older places in Santa Cruz can seem a little shady. I checked in and the guy at the counter was incredibly nice. That was a good start. I was so happy when I opened the door to my room. The room... More

I have been staying in this hotel for the past five years. The manager is easy to deal with and the rooms are clean. The hotel is not beautiful but for the price it's a good deal. Cleanliness is very important for me so you won't feel like you're slumming it hear. I always stay at this hotel on my... More

Booked three nights. The king room was spacious and clean. The staff were pleasant and wanting to help. The nights were quiet. Felt so good about the stay and decided to add three more days. Santa Cruz is quite a town. Make sure you get the local map at the front desk and visit the Charlie Hong Kong, a unique... More

My gf and I stayed at this hotel two nights at Christmas time. We had a lovely stay and had zero complaints. The manager (Upen), found and held my IPad for a week until I was able to get it. Any other place could have lied and sold out or used it themselves. Upen hooked us up with some extra... More

We stayed two nights in a king room on the second floor. Our room was spacious, clean, and dark at night. The room had a quiet refrigerator, and a coffee maker. The room also smelled nice. The breakfast is standard, cereal, yogurt, waffles, sausage. I don't recommend the eggs. The hotel manager was very polite and kind. I would stay... More

The wife and I stay here every time we come to Santa Cruz...about twice a year. The property has gotten progressively better each time. Stayed 6 nights last week for our anniversary trip. First off is location which I believe is the best in town. When traveling it is one of the first hotels off the highway and after a... More

We were surprised to have found this hotel at a reasonable price on New Year's Eve. Our room was spacious, very clean, & quiet. The modern bedroom furniture, Wi-fi, TV, frig., & microwave served us well. The beds were comfy w/good pillows and bedding. The bathroom was nicely remodeled. This hotel is a good option when staying in Santa Cruz.... More
