After a 9 hour drive from Oregon, it was very refreshing to see friendly front desk and a comfortable room. The boardwalk was walking distance from the motel and I was able to have a nice dinner there with my wife. Felt safe walking there during the evening. Had a nice jog at the beach the morning we checked too.... More

Friendly, Friendly, Friendly! Great location, easy stroll to the Boardwalk. We arrived early because I read the reviews about parking not being very easy. We were greeted by one of the staff who ran out of the office and pointed us right where to go and it was a breeze. There was a very nice variety of breakfast options, including... More

...to the welcome we received upon arrival, this was one of the best experiences I have had at a "chain" type of hotel. I felt like I was home, or at a special 5-star hotel. The service, the warmth, the quality of the rooms, the family atmosphere the management created and maintained all were far more than I expected. Professional,... More

Walking to the boardwalk was a breeze and although the rides are now only open on the weekends we had a blast at the arcades and the beach and views are lovely. The wharf is a few blocks more walking but doable , though we decided to drive....my husband is partially disabled and can't walk very far. The hotel was... More

We just stayed one night on our way through town early September. Good location close to beach boardwalk and pier. Unfortunately most of the amusements on the boardwalk were closed for the season as was the pool at the hotel, which we were looking forward to given it was very hot weather (very small pool right in front of hotel...

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
