El View Lodge
Ranked #13 of 15 Santa Cruz B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Location: Close to shore and center. You might have neighbors living there permanently.

Room: Bathroom was not really clean, but o.k., fortunately we had two beds to choose and decided for the one with the cleaner - not the clean sheets, dirty carpet, AC and fan did not work, but o.k. for the trigger was as sticky as almost everything in the room.

Service: Only cash accepted, after quite some discussions a receipt was given. No speculations why... extremly unfriendly reactions to any questions.

Price: 130 $, all Santa Cruz was booked for the weekend one of the last rooms available.

Do not stay here, our toilet got blocked, the owner refused to give us a discount on account of us having no toilet all night, it was over flowing for hours.

The sheets were dirty, do not stay here.

The owner doesn't listen to complaints, the poorest service I've received in the US.

After driving 12 hours we were tired so we stop in Santa Cruz for the night... We paid $100 for the night at El View Lodge (1) The key wouldn't open the door.. After getting it opened (2) It smelled like it hadn't been cleaned in weeks...(3) the water from the sink was brown (4) there was a LARGE blood stain on the bed... It looked like a murder scene (5) BEDBUGS
