For my needs, I like the location. Everything that a traveler needs was walking distance or very close by. Food, markets, subway, 7/11 etc

A little noisy since it is located on Mission and the continental breakfast was a little weak.

A very good hotel for the price. Friendly staff and the rooms are clean and spacious for a 2 star hotel. A bit noisy since it is located on a busy street and the continental breakfast could use a little more selection. Otherwise, recommend this hotel to all

The location is what brings us back. Close to grand kids.

There was broken glass around our sink which was still there the next day after the room being cleaned. This was worrisome. I could not see anything that was broken so it must have been from another occupant. Therefore we left no tip for the cleaning staf

This hotel is a bit on the expensive side. Spent less for a Jr. Suite in Las Vegas per night.

The location is wonderful. It is within walking distance to downtown restaurants and shops as well as the boardwalk and the pier. The rooms are immaculate and very quaint. The staff, especially Sam, is spectacular. He is extremely accomodating.

Our stay at the Babbling Brook was wonderful and we will definitely make it our number one choice when staying in the Santa Cruz area. The food offered at the evening reception as well as breakfast was deliciuous and far surpassed any included breakfast we have experienced at most other hotels. The environment is serene and relaxing, a great get-away! I would highly recommend this hotel!

The dance school next door had class early in the morning that was sleep interrupting and woke both me and my partner far too early for vacation or even our regular life schedule.

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.

Check in was quick and easy. The hotel's location was fantastic - near the attractions we wanted to see, within walking distance of places to eat, and nice and quiet.

I think the bathroom could have been a little cleaner. While not filthy, it still looked like it could use a little more attention to detail.

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.
Okay 5.0
Mar 25 2014 Posted by Verified Hotel Guest

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.

**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...

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.

The staff were amazingly friendly and the front desk receptionist was probably the nicest I've come across (Yolanda). Our room was wonderful and we took several pictures for ideas to do some remodeling to our own home. Everything was very clean and well maintained. We highly recommend Hotel Paradox and will be likely to stay there again next time we are in Santa Cruz

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.
