I was not expecting much of a Super 8. I was pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness of the hotel. We had a screaming child in the room next door and the manager promptly solved the problem after I complained.

Very good value, clean and very convenient to the boardwalk and beach. If you're looking for luxury, this isn't it, but I've seen worse Super 8's. "Breakfast" is a misnomer, but there is coffee and watery, sweetened orange juice. Cereal and hard cinnamon rolls that need to be micro-waved. But value is key.

This place was relatively quiet and the bed was comfortable but, the night clerk was rude and there was a dirty washcloth and lots of hair left in the shower from the previous guest - ewwww! Also a very low entry made it dicey with our boat on top. Fortunately another way out but parking is TIGHT!

Krish at the desk said our rooms would be clean and comfortable. Krish was correct. Room was clean and comfy with a microwave and refrigerator....

Our last hotel during our trip around the us. One of the cheapest we've had but certainly not the worst. The rooms are quite big, clean and the bed is very comfy. Also the vicinity of the boardwalk is nice. Would recommend this for a short stay when in Santa Cruz.

Very dated. I used the internet at night, but it wouldn't work in the morning. I told the man at the desk and he told me it must be my computer. I tried to get breakfast at 8 am and the office was locked up tight. About 8:15 the man showed up to start making the coffee. The breakfast food...
