Walking distance to Boardwalk, downtown and Pier

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

clean, new carpet, nice toiletries

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.

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!

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?)

As soon as we checked in, the cleaning lady thinks it's on to barge into our room while I was changing and doesn't even leave to close the door! Had to yell at her to close it. Very unprofessional.

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

Nothing , I left and had to get another room. No AC, room was very hot. There was garbage outside in several places from remodeling, huge piles. Several people with doors open and hanging outside in parking lot due to heat, 3 people asking for money back.

Homeless loitering, dirty, very hot at the time I was there, rude office guy. Never again.

Ease of access from freeway

Bed not made up. 'Free' WIFI didn't work. Loud guests - music and screaming at midnight. Bathroom window did not open, even after Herculean effort by staff. Good thing I was alone.

Located in a convenient place.

Continental breakfast was very skimpy.

The people at the desk were very nice, the place was clean, there was no conditioner for showers, the traffic was very loud but our overall experience was good. Thank you!

The motel had some covered parking available. The complimentary breakfast was very nice.

The furnishings were old and the room was in bad need of updating.

We stayed only 1 night and then left, we will not stay there again.

The motel is a 5 minute drive to the Boardwalk, the staff were very nice and helpful and the price was right. It is an older motel but well maintained and nicer than many hotels with higher ratings.

It is a great place to stay with children and when on a tight budget. It was quiet and clean and the rooms are spacious. The staff was helpful and friendly. It is also nicely decorated and comfortable.

The room was clean. The linens were washed in bleach, which in turns tells me that they are sanitized! :) Large refrigerator!

The shower can use some updating. No ice machine. Parking spaces are for compact cars... No continental breakfast and area where they had the coffee, had not been cleaned in a couple of days.

For the---- (after tax) paid, I would have expected a little more.

The location is great. Right across from the boardwalk.

It is way overpriced! The towels were disgusting. Thread bare and did not seem clean. The bedding needed some updating as well. Charging almost--- a night for this place is a joke! Definitely not worth the price I paid. I would not go back.

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.
