Probably not the nicest hotel in the world, but it offers a great value, the staff is super friendly and helpful and it is located in walking distance to the boardwalk and shopping street. Stayed there a couple of times by now and never regretted it!

I see my husband already wrote a review for the time we spent there :) For our first time to Santa Cruz, I immediately fell in love. We wanted to spend most of our money on the fun and not the room.
THE GOOD:
1. Down the street from Boardwalk!
2. Very Clean Room & clean Bathroom (very important).
3. Very nice Management/Owners. In fact on that alone I would come back and stay there :)
4. Quick Responsive Maintenance. When we had an issue with the sound on TV (distorted or blown on some channels was weird) the Maintenance came quickly to check it out, although there was nothing he could do for it.
5. Plenty enough choice for continental breakfast.
6. Maids were really nice to when we asked for an extra blanket or 2 and some extra coffee.

THE NOT SO GOOD: Cosmetically its very basic.
1. Our room had Cracked Lamp shade. i reported right away just so we didn't get stuck w/ a bill.
2. Very old microwave from the 70's I assume (old yellowish tint) But it working condition.
3. Fridge door was crooked & had to shimmy to get shut all the way to seal.
4. On a very busy street corner! very noisy out doors at night. I even had to turn the tv up to drown out the noise. But after about midnight to 1ish it started to quiet down.
5. Very small area in lobby for continental breakfast & no where to eat breakfast except outside terrace or in room (not a problem for us).
6. TV sound was distorted. And as mentioned above, slight problem with tv sound on some channels. Good thing we didn't go there to watch TV...LOL! that's it!
PARKING is adequate but awkward....Especially for a large pick-up. but after seeing some of the other parking lots at the other hotels...this was fine :)
oh unfortunate that we stayed next to some pot smokers who decided they would toke out on the terrace that morning :( I didn't enjoy walking through that a couple of times to get to office. But that's not hotels fault.
So for the money, for the Location, and friendliness of staff, I would recommend based on that. If you are looking for a fancy luxurious quiet retreat getaway that cost a lot more...this isn't it.
But, If you are looking to save money on a room & still have a nice, clean, friendly place to sleep at night...than this is it!
some of the pictures of the lobby that you see on the site are not true of the Lobby.

I thought this was a great value. The property is well kept, very clean and a great staff. There is a decent size continental breakfast that was very satisfying. The rooms are pretty big. I would highly recommend the hotel and I'd stay here again as well.
