Good value. Friendly desk staff Close to the beach in Santa Cruz Nice room--bed, furniture, plumbing, air conditioner all in good condition Flat screen TV and internet
Good tv, comfy beds, nice pressure for showers
People around the area, lots of hookers
Great location, enjoyable walking distance from the boardwalk, good value, and the service is very friendly for what I expected! Fridge and microwave in the hotel room which is nice! Overall would book again on a budget trip.
There was lots of cigarette burns in our smoking room which is expected but it made the bed more uncomfortable to sleep in. My boyfriend didn't want to use the bed blankets but I used them anyway and felt itchy all three nights! I regretted it immediately. Room wasn't cleaned after the first night unfortunately but we weren't messy. The maid was cleaning our neighbors room the 3rd day, but they happened to leave their Pepsi drink in our room! I think the maid's child left it there? They were playing in the other room while it was getting cleaned.
The view out on the balcony.
This hotel was filthy. The bedding reeked of stale cigarettes and the room was dirty and the furniture was stained from previous sweaty bodies.
close proximatey to the boardwalk
tub was very dirty and did not drain, room was overall not clean, bird droppings all over outside patio area, staircases were dirty and poorly lit, elevator was out of order, female at front desk tried to rush business and i felt pushed out, hotel was once nice but obviously "let go".
The staff is very nice
The cleanliness quite scarce
We had a good nights sleep, though we were concerned about what seemed to be a busy street next to our window, the traffic died down once the board walk closed.
It is an older hotel but it had the basics & seemed clean enough. Definately nothing fancy. If you are looking for more then the absolute basics this hotel is not for you. The turn around area for parking is tight.
