“Great location, nice, comfortable room, comfortable bedding”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

We liked our room for our family of five - two queen beds, one pullout couch, fireplace, lots of natural light (corner room), modern decor. It was clean and comfortable. The pool is more like a large jacuzzi - very small, but it wasn't pool weather anyway. The location is unbeatable - very close to the boardwalk!
They could do better with breakfast. We went toward the end of breakfast hour.The hot items (eggs and sausage) were cold. There was a microwave to reheat though. The waffle maker didn't work right . Apart from that, we were very satisfied with our stay. We would stay there again. Good value for Santa Cruz!

The newly renovated propery is hidden away and very quiet. It's walking distance to the amusements, the casino and wharf restaurants. We not on saved expensive parking fees, which allowed us to afford an extra glass of wine without the worry of driving afterwards. We enjoyed the romantic queen room with a spa on Valentines Day.. Free hot breakfast, USA Today, and a friendly courteous staff added to the value.

This was a great Value for Santa Cruz. We went down as a Soccer team to a beach tournament and it was perfect. It is a short distance to the beach and so the parking issue is eliminated. Close enough to walk back in between games or if something was forgotten etc. The staff was so accommodating, helpful and friendly. The rooms were just as described and pictured. They had just finished painting the exterior and everything was clean. The breakfast was very simple, nothing gourmet, but plentiful. Overall a very nice experience. Would definitely stay here again.

This was the most comfortable of the motels we visited on our road-trip. The room appeared newly renovated and the motel was quiet so our stay was pleasant. The breakfast area in the lobby is cozy and since we were not the earliest, we had a choice of seating, although unfortunately the hot breakfast items were gone. The surrounding area is not particularly exciting, but I suspect that better situated accommodations are more expensive. This was fine for an overnight stay and we would definitely come here again.

I stayed there for a night in the 2nd week of December, 2012. The stay was comfortable and pleasant. The room seems to be recently renovated and maintained very neatly. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very good and ready in the morning at 7:00 am. It was a very satsfactory pleasant stay. Next time I would prefer to stay 2-3 days with the family. Real value for the money.

This Comfort Inn had a spacious room, a continental breakfast, and is steps from the boardwalk. I would say my stay here was tainted because there wasn't much hot water. After a couple of barely-luke-warm-turned-cold showers, I was ready to be out of there. The area, though close to the beach and boardwalk, is a little bit "urban" and definitely is not in the nice part of town. It's next to a lot of run down homes and convenient stores. The downtown area is still pretty close to the beach and is much cleaner and nicer--I would stay there if I did it again. I would still say there was great value in this hotel for the price, however.

Room Tip: Stay on the top floor, if you can.
