I selected this hotel for its location and was not disappointed. It was no more than a ten-minute walk to both downtown Santa Cruz and the boardwalk/pier. We parked the car and did not drive it again until we left for home. The area seemed safe and we (two women) always felt comfortable walking, even after 11 p.m They were kind enough to let us leave the car in their lot several hours past check-out time. Directly across the street is Electric Sierra Cycles, where you can't rent bikes to explore West Cliff Drive and Natural Bridges State Park -- both highly recommended.
Our room was a little old and worn, but completely clean and comfortable. Decent beds with plenty of pillows, fridge and microwave. We are not the type of people to hang out in the room. We don't care how big the TV is or how many channels it gets. As a comfortable place to sleep and take a shower this hotel was perfect for us.
If you plan on spending time downtown and on the waterfront, this is a great option.
