“Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

Only problem with this hotel is that we could only stay one night! The location is great overlooking the beach and pier. Rooms are modern, large and well appointed. Very comfy beds. Friendly and helpful reception staff. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed September 2013, traveled as a couple

This is a small inn right on the beach looking at the pier in Santa Cruz. It is an older building BUT the rooms have been redone and they are very nice. They are bright and fresh. New bathrooms, small kitchen, new linens and decor. Comfy adirondack chairs to sit in and look at the ocean. I would go again in a heart beat!

Room Tip: The 200 level rooms are above the street and offer good views and are a little quieter.

Great hotel right on the beach. You cannot miss with this hotel. We took a pool view room and had a great view of the Santa Cruz Pier and ocean right over the pool! You could spend another $100 per night for a direct ocean view but those rooms have a shared patio. Now if you don't mind some unruly, un-mannered kids running and screaming up and down your patio go for it. But the pool rooms are quieter! They have a large suite over the office, but you better rent it early, it goes quickly. Great staff, they gave us a whole list of things to do in Santa Cruz besides the beach and boardwalk. They even have bikes to rent. There were only 4 bikes so if you want them you better take them early. We will definitely stay here again!!

This was an ideally located motel in Santa Cruz. It spills down the cliff to the beach front road across from the Santa Cruz wharf. The rooms on the second and third terraces have lovely, unimpeded views over the bay and wharf. The rooms are equipped with two queen bed, TV, wi-fi, microwave, and a bathroom with a huge shower. Very helpful and friendly staff.

Room Tip: 2nd or 3rd terrace have the best views.

This Inn is an awesome place to stay. I have stayed here several times in the last 3 years. The rooms are clean and completely remodeled. The decor is adorable and everything is top notch. The beds are so comfortable and the showers are custom. The location is the best. It is right across the street from the beach, the wharf & the Boardwalk. You never have to get in your car to go anywhere. The swimming pool is really nice and so is the fire pit. They have thought of everything. It is a great place for a couple, a family, or a girls weekend. The staff is also very nice and accommodating. I highly recommend this Inn and know that you won't be sorry when you stay here.

Room Tip: The terrace rooms have a great ocean view

Stayed here for 5 nights on our honeymoon in late September. Also had 106 as the reviewer below (maybe it was my hair, sorry!) And while I agree that housekeeping wasn't great (beds made and towels replenished but nothing actually cleaned), I can't agree with any of the other problems.

The hotel/motel is well decorated and moden. The bathrooms had just enough space for 2 but the room lacked any decent clothes storage if you were there for more than a night or 2.

However, none of this actually mattered as the staff were great and the location was perfect. 5 mins walk to boardwalk, 5 mins to the wharf and 10 mins to Downtown. We ate in the Picnic Basket downstairs nearly every morning and the food is SO good. The comments about the noise is probably due to the fact that you are literally right on the beach. We liked that we were right in the thick of it and even slept with the balcony door open to listen to the sealions at night. But we never felt that noise was an issue in preventing us from sleeping or enjoying the hotel. We'd definitely stay again.

My only constructive comment would be to offer some King bed rooms. It appears that they were all 2 Queens and as it was our honeymoon it would've been a nice touch but can understand why 2 Queens makes better business sense.

stayed 2 nights and loved being able to walk to boardwalk downtown area and other areas. The room itself was okay but I thought a little pricey for it. I guess I was paying for the location. The pool area is nice and the staff was very pleasant. We didn't have an oceanview room as the cost was to prohibited but we could walk out our door and look over to the ocean which was nice. If you need a clean place to stay this is it.
