The Super8 is located close to Santa Cruz boardwalk so may be a location you want but hotel is dirty--found used soap in soap tray when we arrived. Very rundown. Luckily, we only stayed one night. The Super8 across street is being torn down and replaced. This one should be next on the list.

Don't like to write bad reviews, but we stayed here for a weekend and found what looked like cocoons when we got settled but took them to the frontdesk, they said they were beef sticks, they offered us another room but my son found used plastic wear as soon as we walked in. We declined and kept our room, after...

We were able to check in early, which was helpful. However, our room was very musty smelling and the carpet was soaking wet (yuck!!). Light over the sink was malfunctioning and turned off and on at will. The breakfast bar was in the cramped office of the hotel and lacked anything healthy. Wifi signal was almost non-existent, so I was...

Rooms are a bit on the dated side, and walls not too thick, but cannot fault the affordability and cleanliness of this hotel. Staff helpful and welcoming, and a short walk to the famous boardwalk

This motel was our last resort since we waited for the last minute to book a room. What an overpriced mistake. This motel is beyond repair. I slept with one eye open. I'm not sure how they maintain a franchise w Super 8 with such low quality rooms. We will be contacting Super 8 and Reservations.com.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Super * on Riverside Ave in Santa Cruz California. ALL OF THE STAFF was friendly and helpful. Which is becoming rare in Santa Cruz these days. The room was clean and the woman who does the housekeeping is attentive and thorough. I never had to ask for towels, toilet paper, or daily service....

This motel is difficult to rate because it has some very good features as well as others that are lousy. Let me start with the good points. The guy at the front desk was extremely friendly, hospitable and helpful. The price for a room may be the cheapest in Santa Cruz. The bed was fairly comfortable. They have free WiFi....

We stayed just for one night and honestly was terrible. The room was very dirty and smelly. The bathroom was absolutely disgusting!the floor was falling apart and the bathtub was almost black. I didn't even want to take shower in there. The reception guy was nice but the structure need absolutely some serious care. Too pricey for the very low...
