Great location, beautiful rooms, very clean and very close to the beach. There are restaurants and a cafe within walking distance and it's less than 15 minutes from the boardwalk and downtown. Although it's on a major thoroughfare, the rooms were very quiet. We did have an issue with the room, but the management took care of it. They were professional and courteous throughout. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in Santa Cruz. I know I plan on going back there.
