4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

We visit Santa Cruz two or three times per year to do a weekly surf trip. We have stayed at this hotel for probably the past seven years. We like it for the following reasons:
1. It is within walking distance to the downtown area
2. Free breakfast (which we enjoy)
3. Balconies off the room
4. Hot tubs
5. Friendly staff
