The staff was extra friendly. The room was clean and bed comfortable. Nothing fancy, but I wasn't looking for that. There were noisy neighbors below us but we weren't able to hear them once it got later. The rooms were well insulated from noise.

Pros: -Great location right in the middle of the main beach in Santa Cruz (some rooms have... More

I have found a veritable gem of a place in Santa Cruz. I stay here frequently and couldn't be more pleased. I am temporarily in a wheelchair and the handicapped accessible room is quite large. The staff is extremely accommodating and helpful. It is very close to all the tourist attractions that Santa Cruz has to offer i.e. The Wharf,... More

My family of 5 always needs 2 Queens and Sofa Sleeper. I always stay at Comfort Inn & Suites in Oceanside, CA so we saw this location on our trip to Northern California. When we arrived there was a worker guiding vehicles to parking spots because parking is pretty cramped. We were excited to be so close to the boardwalk.... More

This is a modest hotel, but everything I would ask for. Pleasant, quiet rooms, especially considering you are right in the heart of the tourist area. Easy walking distance to the beach, boardwalk, restaurants, etc. Very pleasant staff, very clean room. The parking lot is a bit cramped, so finding a spot early helps, but you won't need to drive...

My wife an I were on a 2 week motorcycle trip from Arizona. We went up through Nevada and then over to the California / Oregon boarder and worked our way down the coast to San Diego. We stopped at the Comfort Inn and were greeted by a young man who was very friendly. Check in was quick and easy.... More
