I had to have my house Fogged for termites and had to find a suitable place for myself and my 3 dogs, sunny cove came through with flying colors, very quiet place with everything I needed to not feel like I was in a hotel but more like the apartments they advertise, it had full kitchen and even a little...

My family reunion! Where were they going to stay? Jane, the Manager of Sunny Cove, was SO helpful and I am SO grateful.

I love the Sunny Cove Motel Apartments. What an awesome experience. Jane the manager went out of her way to make us feel welcome. She took care of all the little worries that go with traveling to a place you've never been. The rooms are updated and clean. Bring your own plates and cups, cause the little kitchenettes will drive...

Stayed here 3 nights in room 9, a room for 4 with Kitchenette. The kitchenette provided 1 (one yes!) coffee cup, some plastic plates, some glasses no pots or pans. We had to ask for anything. It was hot in Santa Cruz and had no air-conditioning, the fan was giving to another room so we went to target to buy...

We stayed four nights at the Sunny Cove Motel. The title of my review encapsulates our experience there. The main wing of the motel has about five units in a row leading from the highway (E. Cliff Dr.) to the pool. We stayed in unit 10 adjacent to the pool. Pros: * Sparkling clean rooms and linens. Recently painted inside...

We stayed at this place on a whim because we didn't want to drive home after having dinner and drinks. It was the cheapest place we could find that didn't look trashy and was pet friendly as we had our two dogs with us. The room was very clean and well kept. Everything is old and the sheets were thin...

This is our favorite little cove to visit. We spend the whole trip on the beach that is literally footsteps away from your room. The rooms are standard but cute. They are all very different and we have stayed in almost all of them to accommodate however many people we were traveling with. It's typical for what you would expect...

Me and my bf left our motel room, because it was disgusting when we got there. But Jane at Sunny Cove Lodge gave us a nice and cozy room for very less cost!! We will definitely come back here. P.S the beach is walking distance!

I recently stayed here for a couple of nights. I found it very comfortable, clean, and in a great location. Within walking distance to the beach, shopping and restaurants. Jane the manager was very sweet and helpful! I will definitely be back.

I thought I was going to Ocean Echo and not Sunny Cove. I'm from Santa Cruz and I thought that I was going to the motel behind Sunny Cove. I'm glad I made the mistake. Sunny Cove has redone there rooms and with a flat screen TV, a kitchen you can sit in and nice vanity (I want the mirror)...

Walnut Grove, California


    I read all the great reviews , and I suppose this would be miss jane that is reading this. So I would like to give you a real short idea of what I am looking for. If I may.

    My name is tracy, and I am looking for a [real] comfortable , clean and forgiving {lets not forget affordable} apt. like place to take my family on a small get away vaca too. My daughter , her husband and their 2 small boys {grandsons} and myself have just made it thru a 2 year traumatic experience and can now breath and live life free and out of the big eye. So to speak.

    I think we forgot how life really is. That its ok to not be perfect parents or people. We forgot how to relax and just breath. ya know.? So I thought a good 3 or 4 days at the coast were all is cast to the sea and renewal is inevitable might help.

    I don't have a 9 to 5 if you will. I sell marbles, old ones.. and other treasures of others that need to be renewed as well by another soul. Or you could call me a "junk dealer" . I like to do my part in keeping our landfills free of useful debris. anyways, Besides affordable, I need to please consider my 2 lovely little grandsons, darlings they are so full of spirit. LOTS OF SPIRIT! if you know what I mean. Some of your guests my not enjoy their spirit as much as I do. {they are very , boisterous and have a lot of energy. so if you might have a place for us in your quaint 13 room apt/hotel for a few days, I would love to hear from you . I do not always have my phone on as it is a prepaid and non contract so right now > not on. tomorrow maybe.

I would like to be able to cook in the room {boys eat a lot} and it would be 3 adults 2 small boys 2 & 3 yrs old. so maybe away from the road , or something.

  I was told to ask for jane , that you would take care of us. I thank you for taking time to read my mumbling on story.

    And no theirs no grandpa coming, were on our own. its all good . God is good !

“stay somewhere else if you expect to get something for a high rate...”
  • the shelf in the kitchen with pretty much all the utilities...
  • kitchen + bathroom
  • right side of the room with tv for two...
