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 staff made us feel right at home, very friendly. The rooms were clean and the beds were nice and soft. We will be going back someday, that is a given. Within walking distance from the beach and the wharf / boardwalk. We didn't move the car from the parking lot till we left. The gardens are awesome. Highly recommended. I don't believe I have stayed someplace else that was as pleasurable an experience.

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.

DO NOT EAT THE BREAKFAST! I went to the breakfast room after the meal hours (bfast ended at 10am - it was 3pm). ALL the food was left out, nothing had been cleaned, trash was over-flowing, cereal and waffel mix was everywhere. So unsanitary!

Price was good for a room close to downtown Santa Cruz

Wished it was closer to downtown Santa Cruz and that it was not pet friendly.

Parking was kind of limited at the end of the night, but that wasn't too big of an issue

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.

Room was a little disappointing. They had about 10 paint swatches painted on different parts of the walls.

I did like the make-yourself waffle station for breakfast. The pool was small but nice.

Considering the overall quality of the hotel, the room could have been worse. Didn't see any bed bugs. Cheapest rate in Santa Cruz. Counter woman liked my dog and only charged my one night pet fee (although the pet fee is laughable considering quality.

Possibly the biggest dive in Santa Cruz. Dour owner not into customer service, young woman at counter faired better. 2 ancient soda machines, both out of service. Sketchy people hanging out in parking lot. Carpet damp near bathroom. Room not cleaned.

Desperation booking when you need a cheap hotel and everything else is booked.

The location was excellent -- convenient access to the highway and to town.

The television sets are very old. We were not able to connect our computer to watch programs that we had recorded. We had a second floor room, which required climbing stairs (no elevator). Not all rooms are air conditioned.

This hotel is an excellent value for money. What makes it special is the helpfulness of the staff. Its location is ideal for people wanting to use it as a base for day trips to Carmel or San Francisco. The rooms, though not as large as some, are well laid out.

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.
