“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

We stayd in room 115 it was very clean and the staff was awesome. They were really welcoming and very lgbt friendly. The room was so cute and welcoming it had a huge jacuzzi tube and was very clean the pool needs some updating but the water was clear and they have a really nice bbq picnic area. Our room was quite as well with a heater. Which we didnt need the one and only problem was there is no air conditioning. But they did provide nice fans. There is also a nice flat screen in all rooms im sure. as well as very comfortable beds. There memory foam. I would definitely stay here again in the off season becuase D. The front desk lady said that its alot less expensive. I am going to be here in oct!. Oh and this is literally200ft from the boradwalk which was awesome it is on the end of the boardwalk by the volley ball courts. I would recommened to anyone who is looking for something different. I would describe this inn as the madonna inn but smaller! ♥

The motel is only a few steps away from the beach with its popular pier and the famous historic Beachwalk. The suits are comfortable and best equipped -and the reception desk people bend all over backwards to meet their guests requests. Have a try and find out for yourselves!

Very quaint and clean, with much of the charm one expects in Santa Cruz, and within easy walking distance of the Boardwalk and the Wharf. The rooms appear to have been updated and are comfortable with all the amenities one could want. Can't live without my Wifi!

When we were greeted by the most lovely and accommodating lady at the front desk, she made us feel completely right at home. She was so lovely in accepting our family -- husband, wife, dog & cat. We were so impressed by the suites she offered, it was hard to pick one. When we met her wonderful husband, we knew this was that rare couple in hospitality that really cares and catered to our every need. Our cat loved all the extra warm fuzzy blankets and my wife loved having coffee overlooking the ocean. Our dog simply loved the beach and walking all around the boardwalk and lovely local scenes. So much to tell about why this motel is impressive. First of all, we got a fabulous multi-night package. The suite was huge. We didn't want to leave. The bed was so comfy. I have literally never slept in such a fancy and huge and comfortable bed. Our pets simply loved the trundle beds. We were given tons of towels and pet sheets and pet treats as this couple knew how to make us happy. We were so happy staying there, I just have to tell everyone what a great team. We stayed thru the xmas holidays and all the decorations and the huge tree and all the blinking lights were awesome. The grounds were impressive. We often asked Hector what all the name of the pretty flowers were. The pet grounds were super clean and inviting. There were so many hummingbirds. The kitchen was huge. There were even cookie baking sheets. We made our xmas turkey in the oven. We had a lovely full size kitchen with all the works. The water pressure and shower was again huge and breath-taking. We had not one, but two televisions. Dee and Barry are Santa Cruz's finest. This is true hospitality at its best. They were so friendly and sweet to our furry babies. I can't wait for our next romantic event so we can fire up these huge bbq's we saw. I couldn't believe we could walk to the beach and then come back and enjoy that fabulous view and the relaxing sound of the ocean.

After the stress of work, we found a great place to relax and enjoy nature. The fireplace came in handy against the cool ocean breeze. It was great hearing the crash of the ocean waves and the bark of the sea lions. The beds are super comfortable. We walked out on the wharf and had a wonderful breakfast. Saw the Monarch Butterflies in Natural Bridges State Park. Staff was efficient, professional and friendly. We will be back.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have fireplaces. Each room is totally different.

Visited Santa Cruz with my wife for a weekend romantic getaway! We love Edgewater for the variety of rooms and they are all different! We stayed in a wonderful room with a full kitchen and jacuzzi tub. Beds were very comfortable. Loved that I could make my own coffee in the morning! It was an easy walk to the Boardwalk and Wharf for great restaurants. Also good location to visit Carmel and Monterey. Private parking (free!) is a plus! Dee and Barry were friendly and accommodating...giving it a Bed and Breakfast atmosphere. They showed us a room that would accommodate our kids and grand-kids so our next visit will definitely be with the entire family...and the grand-kids will love the pool too!

Room Tip: Ask about the rooms because they are all different!
