The locaton was amazing! Right on the water with amazing views.

Having to find our way to the resturant/cafe. You have to go outside the hotel, back in, and down some stairs. Once there the menu was small but the food was good. Front desk did not have change for the valet¿costly to park.

The interior was far beyond anything I have seen before. Bright colors, modern, clean lines and yet comfortable. Very well put together. ... more

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. ... more

Location and easy to get around to downtown and the boardwalk.

You get what you pay for and less. Some shady things going on in the rooms that were occupied. The first room they gave me was not clean when we checked in and the room was just a funky smell.

Easy location to access both Downtown Santa Cruz along with the board walk. Staff on hand was alright. House keeping a minimum on our second day they did not even clean our room and we called the front desk but no help either. ... more

The location was awesome. A little seedy, but right on the water.

The front desk said they closed at 10:00 but when I got back to the hotel at 9:45 the key to my room didn't work. I went to the front desk to get a new key it was already closed and their 'emergency hotline number' was to the phone in the closed office.

I went to the front desk to get a new key it was already closed and their 'emergency hotline number' was to the phone in the closed office. My boyfriend and I ended up having to find another hotel at 10:00 at night with all our things locked up in our original room. The next day when we went back to the hotel to talk to the front desk they weren't even aware that anybody had even called the night before even though we left them three messages. For this reason I will never recommend this hotel to anybody. ... more

the hotel was great and legit. However priceline.com Booking the room online dose not include the security deposit, which is understandable, but a risk. When I got to the motel to check-in they told me that I needed to have a debit/credit card with $100 on it for the deposit. That is standard most all hotels have similar policies, the problem was that If I hadn't come up with the $100 I would not have been able to check in and I would have lost the money that I paid for the room because of priceline.com's neglectful cancellation policies. While talking with the front desk I learned that there is pretty much no benefit to booking your hotel online. Well, other than the lovely headache, maybe you save a dollar or two... So far Priceline has been an unnecessary and awful experience with no perks what so ever. ... more

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.
