This is more like a back street motel. Carpet was dirty and torn. Bubble gum was stuck to comforter on the bed, remote control to tv filthy- glad my wife brought sanitizing wipes. Tv looses signal, don't count on the "coffee or continental breakfast" The shower and sink could have been detailed a little more better.( Dirty shower head and sink area.) I have stayed in better places in Iraq in combat conditions. I believe where you stay sets the whole attitude of your stay. This is a great place for one night stay as you travel through. Unfortunately we booked with a internet company and had to stay our 3 nights. This was the fourth of July week and rooms sold out fast all over the area. Would never stay again.

Room Tip: Find a better place.

Spent one night. Felt safe. Rooms clean. Having a fridge and microwave was great. Rooms are updated. Free wifi worked well. Lamps had charging station for phones. It was quiet at night. Once stayed at the Dream Inn in Santa Cruz, had car valeted. The parking lot was full. They put it offsite and it was vandalized-all tires slashed and car painted. They wouldn't do anything to resolve until we went to the Mayor. Back to the Ramada! I like that there are spaces close to the room and just felt safe.

We spent Memorial weekend with a stay in Santa Cruz at the Ramada Limited. Because this was a spur of the moment trip finding reservations in Santa Cruz was a challange. We, by chance got our room at the Ramada because of a cancellation. We didn't know what to expect because we had read no reviews on this place. We were pleasantly surprised at how nice the room was as well as the staff. From the time we got there we were treated like hotel guests should be treated. It made our weekend just that much better. OK Trip Advisor, I'm giving the Ramada my highest rating and that doesn't happen too often. Happy travels and I sincerely hope this recommendation helps you on your travels just as you have helped us with ours.

Room Tip: Great, great location, close to the pier and boardwalk
