My parents visited me approximately 7 months ago. I reserved a room at the Rio Sands for them. What a great place. The room was clean, comfortable and had a kitchenette. The guest services staff were the best my folks ever encountered (and they are travelers). So, my three daughters and I decided to spend spring break at the Rio Sands we live locally just outside of Santa Cruz. We wanted to stay somewhere within walking distance to the beach.So we decide to stay at this motel. Rochelle placed us in a kitchen suite by the pool and bb area. Rochelle told me she knew we would really enjoy our stay. Was she ever right. From start to finish Rochelle and the other guest servises staff were incredible. This place rates as two star motel. I dont know why. All I can say is I give it five plus stars for the service, location and cleanliness. This place really is the hidden gem of Monterey Bay.
