Everything about this location was horrendous!!!👎👎 The property was filthy, smelled like smoke all over especially the non smoking room! Why would a they put smoking rooms next to a non smoking room? The entire facility smelled of smgoke from the outside to the inside. Even before you walked in it the room. Called management and they were useless and rude!. The whole area was Filthy dirty. The room looked horrible and nothing like the pictures they posted in the website. Way over charges for a crappy room that was more like a motel 6. The towels even stunk like it was filled with mildew! We were so displease with this place and we give it an F- and way below it for safety, customer service, price, cleanliness and experience. The most disgusting place we’ve ever stayed at. This place deserves double negative star (double negative unhappy face), two thumbs down!👎👎 the pictures they posted in the website.

Innkeeper Jay is tremendously friendly and accommodating. This is a no frills, budget hotel. I was pleasantly surprised at how clean & quiet it was, considering our room was right off E. Cliff Drive during the Wharf-to-Wharf race. It would have been nice to have a sheer curtain underneath the blackout curtain to be able to enjoy more of the view (and added light). As it was, the room was very dark (not very good lighting) when the blackout curtain was closed. We'd stay here again.

I stayed here one night after visiting my son at UCSC. The bed was comfortable, the balcony was a nice addition, the view was pleasant of the boardwalk.. the lady at the counter was nice. That’s about it. Very thin walls! Next door had a loud party until about 3am. Then I could hear someone snoring loudly. The tv volume didn’t work from the remote and the guide on the tv was in Spanish. The bathtubs paint is chipping and peeling off. I literally had to pull chips off the tub before getting in. This was bothersome for me as I enjoy taking baths before bed. No idea if there was a ice machine anywhere.

Stayed one night November 3rd, and would not recommend this hotel. Room was dirty, stains on the bedspread, tv did not work, I had to plug in the cable box and program the TV to receive on the HDMI port. Extremely noisy room right on a very busy street, plus since it was a weekend, we had traffic noise until very early in the morning. No checkout instructions, and no one in the office when we left, office door was locked.

The owner is a LAIR and has TERRIBlE customer service! You're better off sleeping ANYWHERE else, and I do mean anywhere, other than here! I've never encountered a person who worked in the customer service industry who was such a disrespectful liar. AVOID AVOID AVOID!! Plus the facility isn't well maintained. It smells like an old persons house and mold! I ended up staying at the Best Western and it was amazing!
