The rooms here were well presented and had a recently updated feel to them. Breakfast was good although they could do with a lot more space / seating as people had to stand / sit in random places just to eat their food. Reception staff could most definitely work on their friendliness, there were some excellent reception staff but some... More

Location was good, central to Boardwalk. Neighborhood wasn't great. Hotel was very basic , considered much below Sheraton, or Double tree type hotel. Bedding was poor and likely dirty. No bugs which was good. Expensive hotel for quality. Also had a line out the door at 3:00 pm because staff would not begin check in until 3:00 exactly . Bad... More

Confirmation never given. When told they sent six emails. We reserved two rooms for different days. They were confused. Room for three had chaise lounge but no bedding for third person. No pillows, blankets, sheets, nothing. Building is old and needs update.

Impossible to sleep with the creaky upstairs floors and people walking around at all hours. Stay away from this place if you want to sleep! Also in a kind of sketchy neighborhood with smell of urine on sidewalk, litter, etc. There is a dog park close by. Room was reasonably clean and has a T.V., fridge, and microwave.

Everything we were looking for - friendly service, lots of room and refurbished bathroom. Would absolutely recommend it. We came late at night with no reservation with a group of seven and were given a better price than what we've asked for.

We were very happy we tried this Days Inn. Santa Cruz can be a hit or miss, this was a HIT!!!! Thank you, close to the boardwalk and easy to get to the wharf and other areas in Santa Cruz, like downtown.

I chose this hotel for it's location, walking distance to the Santa Cruz beach boardwalk. The hotel was efficient, heavily used. The management made our stay nice with their friendliness and assistance. Family and Pet friendly. Although we listened to two dogs barking into the night and one child screaming. We had our pup with us, but kept her quiet.... More
