believe it or not, my boyfriend and I love this place so much, we have been back twice,
the rooms are old and outdated, but the sunset is incredibly nice from the rooms of this place, -dont get me wrong, we normally dont stay at cheap motels like this one, but hey, who would've thought we would fall in love with it?

you can see the skate park from the room, and also the beach.

This place is pretty basic, just a roof and bed, but its worth it.

Great Location - easy to find off the Interstate.

Clean room, nice comfy beds, room's could do with a bit of updating but everything there works fine and the main thing everything is clean.

our room had a balcony and you could see the sea from there, would have seen more of it if we had a room on the first floor.

Breakfast was basic - Pastries, coffee and orange juice but it did the job.

Amazingly close to the Santa Cruz Wharf literally around the corner 5 minute walk if that. Definatly recommend walking down to the end of the wharf to see the Sea Lions.

Lanai Lodge is clean, safe, and adequate for people who aren't spending a lot of time in the room. Bring your own alarm clock. Manager was helpful with directions around town. Location near the beach and boardwalk is excellent. Room 210 is next to the exterior stairwell, so it's a bit noisy with people using the stairs at night.

I am part of a large group of people that goes to Santa Cruz yearly (my second year in a row) for a cheer competition. We booked with Econo Lodge last year (same place, different name & owners), and our stay was fine. It was an older place, but it was kept up, was clean, and the price was right so there were no complaints from any of us staying there, which is why we booked again this year. WELL... First of all, when they say your room rate is $115, DONT BE FOOLED! That does not include kids! When you get there, you are charged per child. Under 10 is $10 per kid, and 10 and over are $25 per kid!!! It was late when we got there (around 8 p.m.) and everyone else was booked so we had no choice but to pay and stay there. Unfortunately, that's not all. Once we got to our rooms they smelled bad (we confirmed it was nonsmoking but we had ashtrays in both of our rooms). In my room the bathroom door didn't have a door knob but did have a square cut out of it in it's place, the toilet did not flush without us having to open the top and fix it, the sliding glass door opened fine but when we went to shut it it would barely shut and wouldn't lock, and there was some disgusting spot on the couch which looked fresh so obviously they don't clean the rooms well. One more thing, last year when we stayed they let us keep our cars parked in the parking lot all day for free while we were at the boardwalk. This time, however, even though the lot was almost empty by 11 a.m., if you want to keep your car there you have to pay $10. To me, these people are not accommodating at all, are greedy, and could not care less about their customers. Needless to say, we will not be staying there in the future, and I advise all that read this to make the same decision before you're stuck dealing with this kind of customer service, which was HORRIBLE.

Room Tip: sommige kamers hebben 2 slaapkamers. Dus eerst vragen en dan boeken.
