i stayed here at the beginning of last may with my boyfriend and his friend. we were doing a road trip to santa cruz thing so we wanted a cheap place to stay for three or four days and thats why we picked this place.
all in all it was a joke. we got there very early and the manager was so mean he wouldnt give us an early check-in. we were so tired from driving for two days that we parked the car in front of his office and slept. then we tried to make it seem like there was only two of us and they got super pissed off and said it was now going to be an extra 10 dollars a night. whatever we paid it
the pool is green...soooo disgusting
breakfast was garbage
the owner was always yelling on the phone and we always laughed at him.
the hotel is really close though to "downtown" santa cruz and thats what we loved about it
the room...hello its a 1 star motel!!! some people writing this seem like they were expecting the ritz or something. i've stayed at nice hotels and spas before and i was surprised with the conditions. our room was clean, we got wirless internet access for our laptops...whatever we booked a 1 star and a 1 star is what we got. really now, if you were expecting something a bit more grand, dont look at pictures....LOOK AT THE RATINGS!!!!
anyways, i would come back here if we were doing another road trip...fun times
