Great location overlooking the Santa Cruz pier right on the wide sandy beach. The rooms all have an ocean view, are comfortable and nicely appointed. Loved the old 70's album covers on the wall...fun remembrances! We came back here to stay for a local wedding, my two teenage daughters loved it last year and again this fall. Staff is great, very helpful. Easy walking out on the wharf, downtown Santa Cruz, or a great walkway (run!) along the ocean. Tons of stuff to do!! In house "Aquarius" restaurant has very good food and service, nice bar. Easy walking to lots of restaurants.
