“Very very likely to return”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

We arrived a little late at night (9'ish) but were received quickly, efficiently and friendly in the cold. Check in was a breeze and we were soon in a warm room with an extremely comfortable bed.
Breakfast was basic but waffles for breakfast is always a treat!!
Questions were always answered in detail and assistance provided to the finest detail. The staff are very helpful and well informed about the area and what is most advisable to tourists, depending on the available time/ interests.

Two comfortable Queen Size beds. The remote for the tv was clean and desinfected. Waffle, toasted bread, yoghurt and juice for breakfast. Stayed one night on our way to San Francisco. There was a pool to swim in if it had been warmer.

If you want to be near the Santa Cruz beach and boardwalk, you can't beat this motel for the price. Owners were exceptionally nice and helpful! Room and breakfast were basic, but fine. In the off season, the neighboring area was rather deserted and I didn't feel comfortable outside alone at night due to some sketchy-appearing characters wandering the streets in groups between the hotel and the beach.

I have to admit I was hesitant about staying at Super 8, I think it triggered memories about a disastrous stay at Motel 6 many years ago. My guy encouraged me to give it a try and I'm glad we did. The owner was very nice, sharing suggestions about things to do, restaurants and directions around town. She upgraded us to a room with Jacuzzi tub and it was all good from there. Make your own waffles for breakfast are always good in my opinion. The room was as good as others describe. Excellent centrally located Santa Cruz choice!

Most smaller hotels in beach towns leave a lot to be desired but this hotel is better than most. The room we stayed in (106) was clean, had a comfortable bed, and all of the extras you would expect in a decent hotel. The front desk clerks were friendly and helpful. We were there off season so it was very quite but I could see it being noisy during the summer, but all places will be at that time. The biggest negative was that the towels are very thin and scratchy. A little attention to this one area would make this hotel's star shine a little brighter. I would stay here again and recommend it to travelers.

Room Tip: If you want to avoid street noise you may ask for a room in back.

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
