Only location is good, other than that, everything else in the hotel (should called motel ) is terrible.

The room smells really bad, carpet is soiled, bathroom, closet are all terrible, the shower handle almost falling down, the toilet running water all night.

Front desk clerk doesn't speak English well and very rude, bad customer service

Located near the Boardwalk and pier.

Room had no closet or place to hand clothes. TV was barely in old closet could not be seen from bed . No bathtub. Tiny shower. No screen on window. Staff was totally uncooperative. Made excuses. Picture on website was not accurate. Pool was closed.

owners were told about room problems. Very aware but had done nothing to fix problems. World's tiniest coffee maker. No ice. Manager said I could get ice at the Super 8 motel next door or use their pool. Manager cheated previous customer to me on checkout. Made him pay for Big 6 price but put him in Super 8. Customer said he would never be back. Other customer found cockroaches in his room.

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.

Less than a 5 minute walk from our hotel to the Boardwalk. We could stand on the street in front hotel and look straight at the entrance to the boardwalk.

My only real complaints are one the parking lot area in front is horrendously difficult to get into with all the traffic that's coming especially since all streets near by are one way. And second is difficult residents in near by hotels banging on doors.

The location for where we were trying to go (Santa Cruz Boardwalk) was perfect. There was a little conveinence store a throw away from the where we stayed. Down the road was a Walgreens, Taco Bell Subway, a theater that put on shows both nights, bars and a couple cafes. All of this was within walking distance from our hotel. The staff was Ok, small structure less than 20 rooms, but the cleaning service took over 2 hours to get us a few extra towels. All in all, we will definitely be staying there again for the price and where it's located, you ju...

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.

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

Aug 3 2014 Posted by george

the only thing good about this place was the short walk to the boardwalk.

the bed was falling apart , the toilet seat was falling off , no shampoo or conditioner for my wife , one tiny bar of soap and no coffee maker in the room. the furniture in the room was all mismatched , old and worn out , the knobs on the dresser fell off when we closed the room door . this place is a dump. when you book your room with kayak you expect that you would get some value for your money . i paid a little under 200.00 dollars for this room witch was not even worth 29.00 dollars. woke up at 7 am to the sound of construction work outside the window , tiny parking lot or park on the street , me and my wife left as soon as we got up.

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.

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.
