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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

**horribly overpriced for the quality of 1 star!! no closet accept for rod and hangers above the microwave and refrigerator and no drawers for clothing storage

No a/c and the room was stuffy with a strange odor. A floor fan moved the hot air around. The refrigerator was not plugged in. I had to move it to plug it into wall. The rug was filthy under the frig. The headboard fell off of the wall onto the bed. I was able to get the tv to work on Friday night, but not Saturday night. I tried calling the front desk and the telephone in the room didn't work. Every line and extension had a busy signal. When I walked to the front desk to ask for help the door was locked. Good thing the bed was comfortable. After a while the room grew on me, I had no choice because anything better would've been more than what I paid.---- per night was extreme! The person managing the motel was pleasant in working with us and said that they were sold out. I found tha...

not much

No fresh air without great security risk...no screen on the window even, which was directly adjacent to the walkway. Shabby structure, poor upkeep, creepy.

I would never recommend anyone to stay there.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

It doesn't look like a typical Super 8, that was easily overlooked with wonderful employees.

It was close to the wedding we were attending.

I left a pair of designer pants and top in the hotel room and called a couple of hours after I checked out all to be told it wasn't in the room and the house cleaner denied seeing it there.

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.
