The owners were helpful and pleasant. My wife left her purse in the room and they called her cellphone within 10 minutes. About 200 yards from the Boardwalk. If you have small kids, consider a one night trip. If you are 60 as are my wife and I then I would say keep going to Monterey.

This was a great room, close to the boardwalk. It's a neat vintage motel, with rooms that have been completely updated. What really made this motel special are the owners. They really went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable and easy. Would definitely recommend to anyone staying in Santa Cruz.

Walking distance to Boardwalk, downtown and Pier

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

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.

It was close to the Boardwalk and the Downtown area. The parking and wifi were free.

I did not like the overall quality of this place. It was run down and overpriced. The "breakfast" was some sugar-filled, pre-packaged pastries and unnatural juice. The rooms were very small with tacky interior and run down aspects: carpet, AC/heat unit, dilapidated furniture. The sheets on the bed were clean, although the bed itself was small and uncomfortable. I didn't like the lack of privacy that the rooms offered - we had to keep curtains shut always because the window looked out to the parking lot. Anyone could just come up and look into our room. We had to pay for ice from a machine. Overall, I was very disappointed with what we got for our money. It was not an enjoyable, relaxing or comfortable experience. In fact, it was one of the worst places I have stayed in. It was an upset to a nice weekend away.

Location was good, less then 10 minute walk to Boardwalk.

The walls were thin, both nights we heard banging from upstairs constantly. Extremely loud. The bathroom looks recently remodeled, but very poorly. There was not lip to shower, which allowed bathroom to flood easily. The staff seemed to barely speak English which made complaining futile. There was a lack of wall plugs, and only one small garbage can next to toilet. No garbage cans in room. Pillows were small and cheap. I would not stay there again. This atmosphere may just be the nature of Santa Cruz, as everywhere we went in Santa Cruz was run down and older with things broken everywhere.

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 reviews weren't kidding when they said it was across the street from the boardwalk! less than five minute walk. Beautiful sunny day made the motel's ocean mural so pretty. I was only there for a day and it was a 15 minute walk to the Pacific Ave where there were stores, restaurants and Catalyst (where we saw my boyfriends favorite band D.R.I). overall great experience. If you're not picky and just want a place to crash, this is for you!

nothing really

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.
