We stayed here for two days when visiting friends in Santa Cruz.
Pros: Clean, with a comfortable if a bit squeaky bed. Nice TVs with HBO. Walkable to boardwalk, beaches, Santa Cruz Warf and downtown.
Breakfast is free and good. There is a coffee machine in room. The staff was very nice.
Cons: We had an absolutely erratic shower. Hot was labeled cold, though if you turned it too far it would get cold, then someone would flush a toilet and the temps would change, as would the position of the hot/cold control. It was rather confusing, then really hot, then really cold.
There is a $10 charge to park in the hotel parking lot. There is a city owned $5 lot around the corner, and the meters on the street shut off at 8pm.
Ask for a room on the top floor, word is the floors are thin and it's easy to hear people moving around upstairs. I can't personally verify this as we were on the second floor.
