My husband and I spent a couple of nights here for our anniversary trip through part of California. The hotel was in the perfect location (within walking distance to downtown and the boardwalk)! Service and accommodations were average, nothing special. Breakfast was a disappointment (few options that weren't only carbs). Parking was limited- but free. Overall stay was fine- uncertain...

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. Upon checking in, the lady on reception was very friendly and took the time to explain the amenities to us, including nearby attractions, etc. There were bikes to hire at reception and lots of brochures etc. Our room was clean and spacious (though, this is my first time in USA, i'm...

This was actually a nice hotel and very close to Fisherman's Wharf and maybe 4 blocks to the Boardwalk. Comfortable room, but mattress a bit on the firm side. The area was very quiet and they had a nice pool. There was continental breakfast included, but we did not go to it, so no review about that

Clean and comfortable place where you can walk to the Santa Cruz wharf and Boardwalk. Free parking and a decent free breakfast. Did not use the pool but it looked lovely. Breakfast had a waffle maker, yogurts with granola and the usual cereal etc. in a nice room by the pool.

Great hotel, a short walk to the Santa Cruz pier and Boardwalk. Although really busy in the height of summer, a must to visiting the area. Room well kept and all amenities clean and tidy. Lovely pool and hot tub. Would definitely recommend!

The one thing I hate about Santa Cruz is the cost of their hotel rooms per night relative to what you get. The prices here are so high, and at $300 a night, this is no 3 or 4 star hotel. That being said, it is visually appealing on the outside, with a quaint lobby. We had room 105 which... More

Decided to spend night in Santa Cruz close to Boardwalk because of beach soccer tournament. The hotel rate was high because of the tournament which was annoying as that was a motel experience thru and thru and what to be expected for one in Santa Cruz. We only spent one night and didn't spend much time in the room. It... More

I had doubts about this place seeing it from the outside, but everything was OK. They have new locks on the doors, the bathroom window in my room was cracked but not broken, There was a fan (no A/C, and wasn't necessary either) Plenty of body soap packages and shampoo + soap. Immaculate clean bedding and batroom towels. It is... More

This hotel was a great choice for our family. We had the king suite with two rooms with king beds and a shared bath. Our room was clean and spacious. The staff was very accommodating and definitely cared about you being 110% satisfied. William was working the front desk on the second night of our stay. He assisted us with... More

The front desk personnel were very helpful, with good recommendations for dinner. The room was clean, but very outdated. The TV was from the 70s, the bathtub was old, the bathroom could use an update, and the air conditioner was not too efficient. Beds were fine, breakfast was ok. Pretty pricey for what you get.
