Stayed two nights, mid-week off-season. Check-in was easy, but check-in hours restrictive. Older property, room clean, bright and tidy, but bed comfort only so-so for us. Nice to have microwave, small fridge and coffee maker, but missed not having any breakfast. Good cafe down the street, but breakfast for two will run you something like $35. Walls pretty thin and building creaky, but fortunately the neighbors were quiet and considerate when we were there. Quite a bit of road noise in the morning -- if you are a light sleeper bring ear plugs. Even though the daytime high temperature was only in the 60's, the room was pretty warm and there is no a/c. We did use the fan, which helped. 45 minute walk to the part of downtown where we had dinner (and we are not slow walkers), many small hotels quite a bit closer. Nice that this is not a national chain, and price (about $100/night on our visit) was not unreasonable, but we'll likely look elsewhere next time.

Found on hotel.com and chosen for good reviews. Clean and quiet inn. Big room with huge king size bed. Very near to harbor and 5 minutes away from downtown. Parking available no cost. Average price and a good stay for 3-4 days.

A nice small motel close to the beach of Santa Cruz. close to supermarket and small places where you can have breakfast (no option for breakfast at the hotel). The room was comfortable and clean. Free parking. We had a problem with the WiFi connection but the woman at the reception just checked us in and went away so we had nobody to ask to solve the problem. We stayed 2 nights but the reception open up only on 10:00, (we left before) and by the time we came back it was already closed.

Stayed just two nights, but I would definitely stay here again. The room was clean, quaint, and the bed was comfortable. I was able to arrange a late check in. This is what a seaside hotel should be. It felt like home. Plenty of hot water and good shower pressure. I enjoyed my stay here.

Good price, good quality. More like a b&b. Mid-century funky. Comfortable. Nice caretakers and staff. I shared a toilet/shower, total non-issue. A comfy chair in my room (206) would have been nice and a box of tissues.
