no I have no felling about this hotel.

This hotel is very old, and the parking space is out of the hotel. It is so expensive for this hotel's environment.

very poor parking as i came in after 1am, a car window was smashed outside hotel at 5am, alarms went off, police, etc.

I called to verify late check in, was not very cooperative. As I had all ready paid in full was not happy with that attitude. When i checked in however, she was very nice.

The room was very nice, spacious and comfortable. Free parking, small amount of spaces close to rooms, nice grounds overall. Definitely recommend

$25 resort tax fee, long walks from parking lot, no mini fridge, house keeping knocking at 9:45, landscapers weed wacking and leaf blowing at 9:30.

Good experience overall, I would stay again.

We loved it. Dan the bartender on Sat. Night made our experience very nice. Great guy, very personable! Gave us all the local in and outs to come back and explore the area!

A little noisy. We were up at 6:30 am with the upstairs guests banging and pacing.

Location was 2 blocks from the wharf which was nice. The room was well kept and not too shabby.

Vending machine was extremely over priced and didnt have much to offer. The in room refrigerator did not keep things cold just kind of cool.

Overall 8 out of 10. Nice location, clean up to date room. Free parking.

The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Will definitely come back again.

I did not appreciate the gentleman who checked us in rolling his eyes at me but I could see he was a bit stressed. The rest of the staff was great.

The pool could use some landscaping. Great location!

The staff were amazing! I especially appreciated the manager (pr person) who roved the lobby chatting with guests and checking to see how their stay was going. Truthfully , this was an exceptional experience- the complementary breakfast bar was excellent!

The parking is limited and challenging due to all the pillars blocking spaces- just a bit annoying but seismically correct I'm sure.

The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and everything you would need was in the room.

Later in the evening I wanted to go and ask about check out in the morning, there was a sign stating they would be back soon. I waited a long while, but nothing. The same in the morning when I checked out, just a sign. It is family run though.

THE AREA WAS CLOSE TO WHERE WE WANTED TO BE AROUND AND GO TO DO THINGS WITHOUT DRIVING.

THE POOL LIGHT WAS OUT. BATHROOM LIGHT WAS A LAMP ON THE VENT FAN, MADE IT REALLY DIM.

HOTEL WAS GOOD FOR THE STAR BUT COULD OF BEEN MORE WORTHY IF THING HAD A MAKE OVER.

Its a great basic hotel close to the Boardwalk and pier. Hotel staff was great. They allowed me to keep my car in the hotel lot beyond the normal checkout time which was very nice.

There were some shady looking characters at the hotel, but it seems like that is the norm in Santa Cruz. We had no problems, but there were people you wouldn't want to run into in a dark alley.

The hotel offered a lite breakfast.

The parking was absolutely inadequate. They charged $10 a day for parking that was not even in the parking lot. They were double parking people at night. We chose not to drive in order to keep our car parked in the lot.

My husband and son are allergic to cats so even if you do not bring a pet the allergy are still in the air. My husband and son were miserable. The room was small for two adults and two kids even with the two queen beds.

We liked that this hotel was close to the boardwalk

We felt that although the rooms were updated and very clean looking, our faux wood floor was actually quite dirty leaving our feet gross after walking around in bare feet all morning after showers. Made me question the rest of the cleanliness (linens?)

Reasonably priced. Room was very quiet and quite large. New A/C unit. Bed was comfortable. Across from Safeway.

Breakfast was mediocre. Location was not ideal (busy road, kind of sketchy at night). Breakfast room was hard to find.

Street can be busy in the afternoon. Two story hotel.

The room we stayed in was very quiet. We were in a small strip of just 5 rooms. We had a small patio and a kitchen with a view of the ocean

I didn't like the fact that they wanted us to pay a 100.00 for a deposit. That would take 5 business days to return because I wanted to pay cash for the room. Continental breakfast was horrible.

Overall it was a very nice stay. Room was clean and roomy. Plenty of towels and toiletries. Staff was pleasant. Would stay here again.

nothing really I have stayed in better hotels in Santa Cruz for the same price.

Room was extremely small. Bathroom door stuck and was hard to open as it needs to be cut off on the bottom.

We were there for one night only and I would not recommend it if you were planning staying for more that one night. They mentioned a view of the ocean and it is one of those that you have to go out side and you can get a peek at the ocean

Loved the room. Two queen beds located at opposite ends of the L-shaped room made it seem almost like separate rooms. The place was clean and the staff was friendly.

Located on a main street, it is within reasonable walking distance to most places.

The staff were amazingly friendly and the front desk receptionist was probably the nicest I've come across (Yolanda). Our room was wonderful and we took several pictures for ideas to do some remodeling to our own home. Everything was very clean and well maintained. We highly recommend Hotel Paradox and will be likely to stay there again next time we are in Santa Cruz

Prices are either the average per night price per room or first night of stay. You can select to display the prices with or without our estimate of taxes & fees (which may not appear on provider's booking page but will be charged at hotel checkout). Before you complete your reservation, verify the total cost on the provider's site. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
