“Great Value, Clean Room, Would Stay Again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

This place is right off California 1. The rooms are entry from the parking lot. It reminds me of a Holiday Inn, but it is like new and has been redecorated recently. The bed was comfortable. The room was immaculate. It's probably the best value hotel I've stayed in this year.

This motel is a nice one, I always loved staying here. The staff is super kind and friendly, and keeps to themselves, there not all noisy. lol and the rooms are always large and very clean. Never ever had a bad experience here; and I have stayed here many times, in many different rooms they have available. It's a great location too. Plus, they have all different kinds of rooms, ones with two whole rooms in one, like with a door separator and one bed, and regular two beds, they have mini fridge in some rooms, with ice buckets. they have jacuzzi tubs in the bathrooms in a couple of the rooms, they all have tv, a couple have microwave too. they all have working heater and a/c and fan. very peaceful stay here everytime I've ever stayed here. I mean it kinda nice, have peace and quiet and no people just running around the halls and outside running amuck everywhere like at some motels in the county. I would definitely recommend this motel to anyone and everyone coming to stay for a visit, or even locals too. And they have a pool and hot tub too. =)

We stayed 2 nights on Friday and Saturday. Staff was very nice. Rooms and bathroom were clean. It was quiet and we liked it because it was close to the hot tub. It was quiet and good deal because it includes continental breakfast. We had 4 families and they enjoyed the stay. It is family friendly. It is close to restaurants and short distance from the boardwalk.

Room Tip: Choose towards the back of the motel. Rooms 150 and 151

My wife & I escaped the kaos of SoCal for a couple days & had a wonderful time including a nice room at a great value that was conveniently located. It was nice being close to a wonderful Safeway market that seemed like it had anything you could need if you are so inclined. We will definitely return at some point hopefully in the near future.

I stayed at this hotel at the recommendation of a colleague and enjoyed it. It is a very basic motel (doors open to the outside) but the property was very clean and comfortable, and touches like breakfast and free wifi were great. It was far cheaper than the other hotels in Santa Cruz and I would stay here again. The property received a certificate of excellence from Tripadvisor in 2012.

We stayed 3 nights in February 2013. Our room (113) was very pleasant, the queen bed was comfortable, and everything was quite clean. WiFi worked well and the TV coverage was fine. Breakfast is basic but complete. There must be 25 restaurants within a short walk, we ate at two of them and they were good. Front office staff was helpful and friendly. The location is close to most everything in "metro" Santa Cruz. Close to the University, Boardwalk, Beach, and all necessary shopping.
Anyone who rates this place "average" must be incredibly picky.
