We were in Santa Cruz for just one night to visit family. We chose this hotel because it was close to downtown and within walking distance to many good dining choices. We were surprised how clean it was and the rotating massaging shower head was a surprise. It was quiet and the breakfast amenities were surprisingly enough for a real...

- Rooms were OK but there was a lot of visible wear. - I was mot impressed when I was told I had to pay my 2 week stay up front. I wax able to argue myself out of it but I travel a lot and know this is not an industry practice

Door was broken: locking mechanism was missing three of four screws. In the bathroom, the bath tub spout was falling off wall. The bed had been neatly made with dirty linen; the bedspread was so greasy I took it off the bed completely. The tile floor was gritty through out.

The only reason I need to book a hotel room is so that I can sleep. Sleep is required for humans. I don't need the room to be a palace; working lights, running water and a decent mattress. The mattress in our room was caved-in. It was not very comfortable. My wife and I couldn't even make love on it....
