4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

we stayed at this hotel in October, when we arrived we were too early for check in but the lady in charge made a big effort to get a room ready so we could check in early .the room was very clean and comfortable.the hotel did not have a laundry but there is one within walking distance.the free breakfast was substantial but because of the building logistics you were required to take your breakfast to your room this was not an issue for us. the management were friendly and very helpful we found this hotel to be quite good and would stay there again

Room Tip: stay in rooms behind hotel lobby

After much deliberation we finally chose Super 8 for our overnight stay in Santa Cruz, and it didn't disappoint.

A warm welcome, with a large, clean room, and very comfortable bed. Breakfast was helps yourself, with a selection of cereals, yoghurt, toast, waffles and cinnamon rolls. Along with juices, and tea and coffee. We ate breakfast outside our room at a table on the terrace. Lovely!

If you are looking for somewhere reasonably priced, clean and comfortable, and don't need the frills of a hotel, this is the place.

Recommended.

The motel is nothing fancy, but the rooms are quite nice and clean. Excellent location, only two blocks walk to Santa Cruz Boardwalk. Postage stamp size pool not useful except for dunking. Continental breakfast is minimalist and there's no where to sit down inside. Kind of pricey in high season, but most hotels in Santa Cruz are. There is another Super 8 Boardwalk West located across the street from this motel and they are separately owned. The one across the street is not as nice.

If you are looking for a budgetfrienly place to sleep in the beach/boardwalk area, this is a safe bet.

The room is soacious, clean and with new carpet and curtains recently updated. Bathroom is old, but clean and with a good hot shower.

Breakfast has to be made at the reception and then taken to the room or to the nice sunny breakfast area on the roofterrace. Eating outside is a plus!

Owner and his wife are very nice and welcoming and the rate via hotels.com was great.

Overall a very nice stay, would highly recommend.
