Huge mistake, but we were tired.The door to our room didn't lock properly, the bed creaked, the over-head fan looked like it had never been cleaned and it made a ton of noise. The shower leaked and left the whole bathroom floor wet. We could hear every word spoken in the lobby. Didn't serve breakfast, only lukewarm coffee and cookies... More

Way too much for what you get. No heat in our room. Carpet is filthy. Room was not ready for our arrival, even though after check in time. Noisy , walls seemed thin, and we could hear everyone clomping up to their room.

I booked and paid for a King bed with a suite. Got there and was told they sold out. Carpet was filthy in my room shared the terrace with other so there was no privacy. Heat did not work in room. Not a Happy Camper.

I stayed here for one night in January on business. I have traveled to Santa Cruz a lot and was excited that the rate was so low for the location, but figured it was due to being off season. When I arrived, I found out that I had made a reservation for the wrong day, they were expecting me the... More

We are traveling with 8 kids under 17. We usually stay at the Comfort Inn with the kids but they were booked so we found this place (which was more $$) We booked 3 rooms at this hotel based solely off of some reviews and the hotel website itself. The site shows nice rooms with double beds and beautiful grounds.... More

Well, it's across from the beach and near the pier but very much a younger person's area. Thin walls, small rooms, dirty, disorganized reception, trashy grounds--clearly the owners have either lost interest or just milking it for all it's worth. On the plus side, the room was clean, the bed and pillows good, the shower clean and water hot. And... More

This was our first stay and it will definitely not be our last. Our room, which faced the ocean and the Boardwalk and Pier, was big and nicely furnished. Super clean and lots of amenities. Staff is super friendly and helpful. Our friends who came to visit for the day said they'd stay there next time they come. They typically... More
