Super 8 Santa Cruz/Beach Boardwalk East
Ranked #21 of 54 Hotels in Santa Cruz
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Wow, we felt so utterly welcomed and valued as guests by the manager Sunni and her husband Praf when we checked in! Yes, the room was just fine--clean, great shower and comfortable bed--for a very reasonable price, compared to other places. We even stayed a day longer than we had planned. Sunni and Praf were like tourist guides, suggesting places to visit, giving us complimentary maps of all kinds, giving us driving directions to the surfing championship, the art galleries, boardwalk attractions like the glassworks, etc, etc. The morning breakfasts were great--yogurt, do-it-yourself-waffles, pastries, coffee of course, etc. When we were leaving, other guests were leaving too. Their behavior was the same--they hugged Sunni and Praf as if they were relatives/old friends sorry to leave. Yep, we will return in a heartbeat when we visit again visit my son at UCSC--maybe just to visit Sunni and Praf ...

Room Tip: Upstairs might have a bit more privacy, since the swimming pool is next to many of the downstairs ro...

We stayed here for one night on our trip down the coast. The reviews on here are not wrong. This place is excellent. The staff and service were exceptional, our room was huge, spotless, smart and comfortable - even had an iPod dock. We were in the room above reception, stepping right out onto the veranda area, which was a lovely spot to eat our good, basic continental breakfast. The location is ideal for the Boardwalk. Overall, super value for money and can't recommend highly enough.

We chose this Super 8 based on reviews and decided to take a chance.It was within walking distance to the Boardwalk and wharf. We checked in on October 15th (w/o reservation) and to check out on October 18th. At first we were not impressed with the overall area, but hey, it's old and dated. History, you know....? Wow, we were impressed with our room. Nice furniture, nice and clean bedding, immaculate kept bathroom and lots of personal products for the bathroom each day. Both Praf and Suni were very gracious,accomodating & caring. Continental breakfast is just what it is and with lots of choices. We enjoyed sitting out on top of the terrance and eating our breakfast. The only negative I would say is the parking lot. Tight spaces and away from your rooms. But that is out of Suni & Praf's control. Due to changes in our trip, we came back on October 18th that evening and checked in for another night's stay. Would stay here again without hestitation.
