Small room - cheap free breakfast - old loud AC with no digital temperature control. More like a motel than hotel. Poor internet. My 3G is even better. However, great friendly service front desk guy - if I decided to come back only because of their management hired a great employee that makes me feel welcome.

I got a really great deal through book.com for a room at this place. King Room for $100 a night. That price never showed up on TripAdvisor by the way; not even on TA comparisons, don't know why? Anyway the room was only okay. The bed was hard and lumpy. The mattress visibly sagged in the middle. Past time for... More

Check in was no problem. The guy at the front desk was very courteous. The room that we were given reeked of cigarette smoke. The walls were dirty. The bathroom sink was dirty. The toilet seat cover fell off. The whole room overall was not clean! The neighbor we had was questionable too! For the price of $269 I better... More

I don't have any complaints, other than for things the hotel can't help, like smokers hanging out in the courtyard so that their stinky smoke comes in my room, upstairs, if I wanted to leave my door open for Santa Cruz's fresh air. They'd have to ban smoking everywhere on the premises to get rid of that problem, and I... More

We recently staid overnight at this establishment and were pleased with our stay. The over all impression of this motel is one of cleanliness. The rooms have modern decore, nice linen and towels. The rooms are good size and there was minimal outside noise. The front desk staff were very helpful and answered all our questions about the area and... More

Unfortunately, we ran out of time to pre-book a hotel before we got to Santa Cruz. Bring summer all the hotel near the ocean were booked. After calling several places this hotel had a room with two beds just what we needed. The pictures of the property online appeared to be of fair quality (** two star). The gentleman at... More
