Walking distance to the beach and pier

It needed more attention to cleanliness in bathrooms and overall room spaces, although kitchen was very clean. Bedding was tattered Nd floor mats were overdue for replacement.

Outside appearance was good many opportunities to spruce up potted plants, trash around premises, pick up and clean up parking lot. Noisy at night when room faces street towards south. Quint rooms but nets sprucing up to justify price. More food for breakfast when 'kids' get to breakfast bar before adults. Staff was doing everything they could do for guests . They was just too much to cover without adequate help or new management policies. I will come back but will definatly inspect room before accepting.

Good convenient location

Lot of deferred maintenance. Signs of a leaking ceiling although no apparent signs of mildew. Décor was of the least expensive possible. The place could use an update. The price is high for the quality. Paint was touched up with a different color.

Curtains blow out the door when the door is opened or closing. The unit has a great potential with a small investment to be more appealing.

Just cross the street and your at the beach.

Parking was a little cramped. But we could walk everywhere so it wasn't a problem.

Staff was friendly.

Clean room. Prime location.

Expensive. Housekeeping doesn't want to clean your room. Continental breakfast is terrible. Room is small.

I think if you are going to pay this much for a hotel you might as well fork over a little more for the Dream hotel right across the street, on the beach. At least you might get service there.

Bathroom small and the recent remodel had over spray everywhere making it look "not" clean.

The location was great about a block away from boardwalk.

There was no air conditioning unit but the balcony definitely made up for that.

I would stay here again when i return to Santa Cruz.

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 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

The hotel was ok. The rooms were nice and the pool was great. Service was good. I would recommend but also caution to others.

The price. Room and food was not cheap. Beverly Hills pricing in a noncompetitive market so to speak. This would be my caution in a recommendation. Nice but not cheap for a one night stay.

Location: close to the water, yet still quiet. Also appreciated the friendliness of the staff, and the appearance of the dining area and the room itself. We very much enjoyed our stay.

Closet access was a little awkward

This hotel is situated on a cliff overlooking the ocean. This is a perfect spot for enjoying the ocean view, watching surfers, and relaxing. The outside area is secure and clean. We met several nice couples and enjoyed the wine and cheese social hour

no

The hotel staff is excellent. They responded to our questions and informed us about the hotel amenities; such as free breakfast, afternoon snacks, and the wine and cheese social hour. The common areas and room was very clean. We had a beautiful room with a fireplace and a patio sitting area. The ocean sounds made for a peaceful night sleep.

Quaint hotel with a decor that speaks of home and not a motel. Beautiful view of Monterey Bay, Santa Cruz boardwalk and wharf and Cowells Beach. Nice to wake up to the sound of the ocean. Good security as you have to have a key to enter the area where the rooms are located. Nice breakfast with fresh cut fruit, muffins, yogurt etc. Wine and cheese in afternoon.

Jun 9 2013 Posted by Kelsey

The location is very close to the boardwalk.

The room we were first put in smelled very strongly of cigarette smoke, and had several black stains on the bathroom ceiling. We were allowed to move to another room though.

The Aqua Breeze Inn had both pros and cons: Pros: close to the board walk, comfy bed. Cons: reeked of cigarette smoke, not the cleanest, could use some updating, and doesn't have a ton of parking. It's also not in the safest area, but they do have cameras in the parking lots. If you're looking to stay here, just know that it is a motel and go into it with open eyes.

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.
