As we were driving down the PCH, my son found out that Santa Cruz was one of the next stops, so they quickly pulled out the AAA book and started searching for hotels. They called this one and got a room. When we pulled in, it looked like a nice hotel. We checked in with no problems, and proceeded to our room. The room was nice and clean and loved the layout. The kids quickly got changed into their swimsuits and dove in. The only thing that upset them was the fact that some one dripped red stain on the pool deck from the fence, so they sat and thought it was blood. Pool was actually nice, but we are starting to think that hotels in the west use salt water not chlorine. They quickly got dressed and we walked to Bill's Wheels to purchase a skateboard for my son. After that, we walked to the boardwalk, my daughter and I walked alone and were uncomfortable, but then the boys walked back to the hotel with us. Other than that, we had no problems, enjoyed our stay. The WIFI code did not work, so for the night we stayed, the kids were unable to get online. The front desk told us that it was our computer that didn't work so that is why the code didn't work. We did grab breakfast from the hotel, which the breakfast area is quite small. We took our food back to our room. We will stay here again and like the fact it was centrally located.
