“Great Room Great location”
Reviewed 10 February 2009

Came to Santa Cruz to relax and get away for awhile. I was a little sketical about booking online. I was pleasantly surprised upon my arrival at the place it was nice and neat and well kept. The attendant upgraded the room to a bigger room because they did not have the two queen size bedI requested. So we were accomadated with a big room with a frontroom and our favorite jacuzzi tub which was quite soothing for me and my wife. It was good I asked if it was okay to stay another night in the same room. I was informed by the attendant he would try to accomadate us and he did. We enjoyed our stay. The breakast was good. I recommend anyone to stay here. Close to the boardwalk.

  • Disliked — the big rollaway bed in the frontroom.

Check in was fine following online reservation. We were given a queen bedded room on the second floor, which was perfectly acceptable. The elevator worked just fine. Discovered that this town is popular for surfers and the majority of the residents seemed to fit this description. The continental breakfast was excellent - cerial&milk with bread &toaster also available for us Europeans. A good tourist motel and would recommend.

some of the lights in the room were out, the shower head didn't work properly etc...
the breakfast was great, and for the price we paid, I guess you can't ask for much more than that.

Purely functional motel -- decent choice if you get a good rate. The Sea and Sand Inn is a better choice, but is more likely to be sold out. Location near the wharf is the main feature here.

Room was clean to the point of smelling of bleach sometimes. Everything is the style of a motel, which wasn't quite what I'd expected. Noisy air conditioner worked very well.

Small towels typical of beach motels. No desk in our room (two queen beds).

Wireless internet worked well, occasionally quite speedy.

Continental breakfast offered two kinds of cereal with one kind of milk, waffles, toast, yogurt, danish, coffee and juice from machines, bananas. No attendent -- if something runs out, call the front desk and they'll replenish it, a system that worked OK.

Smallish pool and two small hot tubs, better than none and good for kids.

Our room was right next to one of the gates to the pool -- noisy, but not tragically so. Rooms are reasonably quiet, but expect some noise from adjoining rooms.

  • Liked — Location, next that room was clean

We decided last minute to stay in Santa Cruz for the evening and were stoked to find availability here. Unfortunately, the only room we could get was a smoking room, so that was definitely bittersweet. We took it though... I mean, the price was decent and the location was great.

We loved the spa tub in the bathroom, the location (just a walk away to the boardwalk and pier), and the fact that we got to stay in Santa Cruz for the night (we called in sick that following day to stay there), but besides that we weren't very impressed with the hotel.

The continental breakfast wasn't anything outstanding (pretty standard). Our room was next to the pool which made it really loud and it was also on the way to the continental breakfast so we got woken up pretty early. The room, as mentioned, was a smoking room, so it smelled. And, then the free wi-fi didn't work the whole night (I called the office and they said it was down).

Overall, we

  • Liked — The spa tub & the location
  • Disliked — The noise, the smoking room, the wi-fi not working, the continental breakfast (very basic & non-impressive)

This hotel was nothing special. The front desk staff was just ok. They didn't seem real happy to help out. They were just there doing the job. The ice machine was broken on the first and second floor. Our room was located right over the pool. It was bad because you could hear the kids playing in the pool, but the pool closed at 9 so we didn't have any noise all night. The a/c worked very well. And it had good water pressure. The room could use a little TLC. The hotel had free WiFi and a good amount of parking. The hotel is only 2 blocks from the oceanl so we were able to walk to the pier. The continental breakfast was at the other end of the hotel so we did not eat there.

  • Liked — close to ocean

We made a last minute decision to stay in Santa Cruz for one Saturday night and called this hotel. They only had the suite room available and we booked. The price was fair, the rooms were clean and the service was friendly and quick. The location is excellent as you can walk to the boardwalk or downtown. Great place to stay!
