“Good location for beach”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

A few short blocks from beach and pier, an easy walk. Fast, free, Wi-Fi.
The motel shows signs of wear: latch on door was almost falling off, carpets stained, sheets threadbare.
Breakfast was not so good: Frozen egg white circles that had been warmed up. They only have Activa yogurt, which many people would not want to eat because it can be a laxative. A small breakfast area with only 4 tables that might all be occupied during the busy season.
The rooms have a refrigerator and microwave.
This would be a good place to stay for a family going to the beach.

We had no complaints with this Motel, close to the Boardwalk and a short walk to the shops, the room was a good size, clean and tidy, the breakfast was standard, pastries, waffles, cereals etc, no complaints for our 2 night stay.

Stopped here for 1 night while touring California.
Fairly cheap typical 2 storey motel with the big advantage that it is located close to the boardwalk including the famous wooden rollercoaster (sadly this was closed the night we stayed) beaches and the wharf.
Nothing to complain about - clean (although the carpet was a bit grimy), good bathroom, fridge, microwave, air con, flat screen TV with HBO.
Free breakfast which was usual US fare - muffins, cereals, bread, etc. in a small dining room.
Limited but free parking.
Nothing particularly praiseworthy or special to commend it but, for this price, I'd stay again for a stopover.

Decent place for the money, we stayed in the room after a long day on the boardwalk. Rooms are small and the beds moderately comfortable. I stay in a lot of hotels for business, this was pretty good, and the location is excellent.

Stayed for 3 nights the week of Sep. 9th.....check in and out was easy - Artie was very helpful and allowed us to use her computer for a quick change to my car rental. (Thank you) Room on top floor - back corner - two queen beds was very quiet as requested and clean. Would definitely recommend staying here to everyone. THANK YOU again Artie - my wife and I enjoyed our stay in Santa Cruz.....

Room Tip: Top floor - back corner two queen room was very quiet & clean.

2blocks away from beach and a price you can't beat. Easy Walk to Board walk and to the Wharf. The room is very well maintained and exceptionally clean. Small pool with chairs to relax at end of day.definitely recommend.

If you are looking for somewhere close to the boardwalk and beach but in a quiet location this place is ideal. We were upgraded when we arrived so I'm not sure what we were supposed to get but we ended up with two queen size beds, a large bathroom, fridge, microwave, coffee maker and tv. We checked in early and left late but the receptionists were fine with that and were very friendly. Breakfast too was pretty decent and we loved the waffle maker. It was everything we would expect from a chain hotel like this so we were very happy. The only downside was 6000 miles is a long way to travel to find there's no surf! (But I'll forgive comfort inn for this).
