Pros. It was close to the beach, free parking and free internet.

Cons. Because of Ironman Santa Cruz, they raised their prices to almost $200 for one night! Being that it is a little run down, dirty and lack sound insulation, there was very little value for money. At least there wasn't any bedbugs.
