“Bargain stay by the beach!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

The location of this hotel is ideal - 3 minutes walk to the boardwalk & beach! Free parking was a bonus. Staff were very helpful & friendly. Breakfast was basic but fine with cereal, juice & toast, tea & coffee. Room was nice - large & we had one on the first floor which opened out onto a terrace with tables & chairs. Nice to sit out with a glass of wine in the evening. Pool was clean - cold but refreshing!

Room Tip: Room on first floor has a terrace with tables & chairs

The rooms are clean and comfortable and just right for the reasonable price. The best thing about this motel is that it is only 2 short blocks to the boardwalk and beach. It is a 15 minute walk to the downtown area of shops, restaurants and bars. Staff is friendly and there's a nice breakfast of coffee/juice, waffles, toast, muffins, yoghurt and fruit. Some rooms back on to a busy road so maybe ask for a room other than those. I would definitely stay here again if I was going back to Santa Cruz especially to be so near the beach!

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...
