This was perfect for us. The room was clean and comfortable with a large refrigerator and huge bathroom. It was so nice to have coffee and breakfast available. Walking to the beach was our goal so this was great. We would definitely stay there again.

Wow, what a total gem. The staff were fantastic; Ankhur really looked after us - thank you! Your hotel is a credit to you and your family, and if we're ever back in Santa Cruz (sadly, not likely for a few years), we'll return. The room was clean, very well appointed - we ended up in a mini- suite, and... More

For the location this is a great hotel. Your about a 5 min walk from the boardwalk and 10 min walk to downtown. The rooms were small but very nice inside! The staff was very friendly!!!! I can't remember the guys name but he was constantly offering us assistance which was nice. The continental breakfast wasn't very appealing to me... More

We enjoyed our stay and were very pleased with the friendly welcome, comfortable bed and clean room and breakfast options. The hotel is very conveniently located, a very short walk from the Boardwalk. We were warmly greeted by Arkun (sincere apologies to him if I'm getting his name wrong because he deserves recognition) and made to feel at home. We... More

We stayed for 2 nights in August in a room with 2 queen sized beds. Room was clean, plenty of towels. Coffee machine, microwave and fridge provided, though we didn't need to use them. Staff were welcoming and friendly. The breakfast was much better than we were expecting for a motel: sausages, a waffle maker to make your own waffles,... More

I made a reservation by mistake on line. Called the hotel to ask them to cancel it. He refused because it was less than 48 hours with-in the cancellation period. I was trying to make it for a month out. I was going to reserve two rooms for the next month. The manager told me he would reserve the next... More

The location of this hotel is perfect if you plan to visit Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and the beach. It's only a couple of short blocks from the Boardwalk and only a block closer than the overpriced parking lots. As is typical with beach motels like this, parking is at a premium, so spaces are tiny and the hotel has... More

Stayed here for 1 night in early August and found it to be quite nice and relatively decent value, considering the area, high season,and extreme close proximity to Boardwalk. The clerk called me about 4pm to ask when I would be arriving. Upon my arrival, he was very friendly and had actually reserved a parking spot for me, something that... More
