Super 8 Santa Cruz/Beach Boardwalk East
Ranked #21 of 54 Hotels in Santa Cruz
Reviewed November 18, 2013

This Super 8 is one of a kind! The Super 8 brand has a poor image; but this Super 8 'breaks that mould'.
This Super 8 is not new or 5 star, but delivers on all that matters - spacious clean rooms, well fit out, great beds, free Wi-Fi, excellent location, wonderfully attentative staff and management, and incredibly inexpensive - the best value. Then to top it off, its location is about as central to all you want to see and do.

We had a nice room and went right to the boardwalk in the morning. It was peaceful off season in Santa Cruz. The room was spacious and had a fridge and a flat screen tv. Believe it or not, on this last road trip we ran into a lot of hotel rooms with old TVs, lol. Also, the lamps had outlets available on the base to charge our phones. Other hotel rooms made us hunt down an available outlet.
The woman at the front desk was very helpful and friendly, letting us know where we could eat late at night.

having never been to Santa Cruz, we did not know the area or which hotel to choose. After looking through several reviews and considering the cost/value of each of our potential choices, we decided on this hotel. We are so glad we did. Being an exterminator, I have seen several hotel rooms usually when there is an issue. I can honestly say this was one of the cleanest rooms ever. The location was amazing, we walked to the beach and boardwalk in just a couple of minutes which saved on parking costs and the owners were awesome. the continental breakfast area was small and you had to either eat in your room or make use of their out door terrace which was fine. We actually checked some of the other hotels and what they offered for free breakfast was even less. Our particular t.v. had some sound quality issues and parking is tight but still a fantastic place to stay. We are planning another trip back and we will book with confidence Herr again

The owners are really nice and accomodating. The room itself was OK and the bed was comfortable but the bathroom would definitely need some renovation. The boardwalk is less than 5 minutes away from the hotel. Overall, the stay was okay.

When our plans changed because of the federal government shutdown, we found ourselves headed up the coast instead of inland to Yosemite.

So we decided to stop here for the night after seeing all of the great reviews on TripAdvisor. And we weren't disappointed. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful.

The rooms were clean (the carpet seemed a little sticky) and as mentioned in the headline, the bed was one of the most comfortable of our 9-day trip to California, besting out some pricey resort hotels we were in.

As previous posts mentioned, the parking looked a little tight but turned out to be ok. If we had to we could have parked on the street.

The hotel was within walking distance to the boardwalk and in the morning we ran on the river trail across the street.

Rooms are clean, bed comfy with lots of pillows. Bathrooms need to be re-painted and have a deep cleaning done, but basic enough.

Close walk to boardwalk about 5 minute walk.

The owners are really sweet.

Would stay again.
