I would describe this place as cozy, and the staff very kind, knowledgeable, and accommodating. We were walking distance from an INCREDIBLE BBQ place, the beach, and a little grocery mart across the way. Also in delicious food: the Windmill Cafe!! which deserves more business, and right around the corner for delicious breakfast food. This place is styled in a soft romantic fashion, with high ceilings. It has heated bathroom tiles, a small kitchen, and feels more high end and private than a generic chain hotel. Definitely has an appealing luxurious aesthetic if that’s what’s important to you, and as someone that fits that description, I really loved waking up here. Really beautiful, especially during sunsets.

We only stayed here for one night of our Californian road trip but it was beautiful. Rooms were very clean, bed was comfortable and breakfast was ample. Not far from the beach either. So I thoroughly recommend.

Room 8 provided a respite from the busy street. Nice landscaping. Very spacious, comfortable. Excellent bedding, sheets, pillows (I'm a stickler for fresh smelling, just right pillows.) Friendly, professional staff. If I had to nitpick, the carpet looked a bit dingy but was comfortable underfoot.

It was so sweet, personable and comfortable, I felt like I was staying at my own home. And wow! The bathroom floors were even heated! So actually the experience was even better than being at my own home! Would highly recommend them to anyone!

Loved this place, ok it's a little way out from the beach/harbour areas but we enjoyed a walk through the residential areas (some gorgeous houses around!) The room was huge and spotlessly clean. Everything provided that you need. Breakfast was brilliant, more than we expected, fresh fruit available, cereal, bread for toasting, pastries, yogurts, almond milk available, loads of juices in the fridge. Both staff members we spoke to were lovely and the information provided in the room about what to do, where to eat etc was really useful. Definitely recommend and hope to return one day as Santa Cruz is just divine.
