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.

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 room was perfect! Clean and spacious, great bathroom. Great layout, the beds had separate rooms. The pier was in walkable distance. The pool area looked clean and nice. Excellent hotel for the right price!

Breakfast was ok, not great in food choices, no fruit except bananas. The eating space was clean though, and waffles were good.

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.

Location, a very short walk to the warf and board walk.

I am not a big fan of motel type place, strange cars parked just outside my door and window. The free breakfast was very limited and had waffle makers but no syrup.

The room was standard and comfortable. We did not use any of the other amenities but spent our time out on the warf and boardwalk.
Okay 5.0
Mar 25 2014 Posted by Verified Hotel Guest

This hotel is at a great proximity to the boardwalk and to downtown.

It could be cleaned better.

The place is a bit run down and dirty but it's decent enough. The free breakfast is nothing special and very little room to get what you want if people are already there. They are pet friendly which is cool. The staff is friendly and cool. Poor water pressure. You have to pay for parking if you book through third party. Overall, I knew this was no ritz Carlton before I booked so I knew not to expect much. One night was fine but any more than that would be too much for me. I chose this place for location and it was good for that reason, and that's why I figure they are expensive.

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

The location was perfect for what I was in Santa Cruz for; the half marathon.

Nope. It suited my purpose.

Our room was great for our purpose. We were there to do things such as go to the beach, and run the half marathon. If you plan on just hanging out in the room this may not suit your needs, but it works as a great home base for your Santa Cruz adventures.

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.
