Santa Cruz was a 2nd stop for my 2 week trip to California. Drove from LA area so needed a place to get some rest close to where I would be working for the 1st night. I booked this hotel because it was the least expensive of the nationwide (,in my opinion, better) brands, at the time. The day I needed to be in Santa Cruz for work, it was the lowest priced hotel so I booked it. The money that I spent on that hotel was not worth it, in my opinion, because the hotel was small, smelled funny(to me) and barely had any additional amenities. Please beware that the gym that they say they have is in a tiny room consisting of about 3 machines, they don't even look like they work but I guess that's their classification of fitness facility. The parking is limited and crammed into a small space. The lobby and breakfast area are in the same vicinity, it is also very small so when there are a few people trying to get breakfast, it is crammed and a bit uncomfortable. The room I was in, had a stained carpet that greeted me as soon as I walked in. I know hotels aren't the cleanest but that is horrible to have your guest feel like they are entering a dirty room. Is it that hard to get the carpet cleaned? Also, when I was in my room, I could hear everyone outside as my room was downstairs and near the lobby. Not good if you need a good night's rest for work. Breakfast was acceptable, it's the typical complimentary breakfast most hotels serve. There is complimentary wi-fi which is always a great thing. The best part of the hotel were the employees, most of them were super sweet and that's what made me give them a very good rating. The staff was very helpful and tried to help with my requests. It was okay for my 1 night stay.
