Stayed here for 1 night. Clean standard motel room. The Wi-Fi didn't work. No worries, since we were only there for the one night and I had smartphone data access. The woman behind the desk was really friendly and helpful. They offer a simple, but appreciated complimentary breakfast in the morning. Very good location in relation to the beach, boardwalk and wharf.

Finding a hotel in Santa Cruz is a challenge, especially one with free and AMPLE parking. The value in the Super 8 is absolutely the location (1 1/2 blocks from the Boardwalk) and being able to leave your car the minute you check-in until the day you leave. We stayed here for a weekend in the middle of peak season. The streets were a parking lot! It was great to be able to drop off our car before check-in and go enjoy the sights. Meanwhile the roads were congested with cars looking for parking. I agree the price seems at first to be oh wow, really, for a Super 8? Then you realize you're trying to book in Santa Cruz next to a huge local attraction. You aren't paying for a hotel experience, you are paying for parking next to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk. For that reason alone the prices are all high. This place is a good choice. The hotel is clean, has breakfast (waffles, yoghurt, juice, tea, coffee, fruit) and the rate is in the ball park of the other motels, only this one is actually clean. I can't speak for the pool or anything as we didn't use it, but the room was clean and the staff were all very friendly and helpful.

This hotel is overpriced, I do not recommend staying here for the $388/night (with taxes), that I paid.
Location - 3 stars. Rooms - 2 stars. Swimming pool - 2 stars. Pricing - 1 star. Overall - 2 stars at most.

You know there must be a really bad selection of hotels in Santa Cruz, when the Super 8 comes up as one of the top 10 rated hotels. I am having a hard time understanding the excellent reviews. Hey, I know we weren't staying at the Hilton but for a going rate of $305 a weekend night, ones expectations naturally rise a bit. I don't think you can charge this rate unless the room is very clean. There was algae growing on the bathroom faucet. On top of the shower, there was someone's left-over bar of soap and a bit of mold on the shower ceiling and wall. "Good" thing the a/c is super loud (and rattily) so you can't hear the car noise of the street in front of the hotel and along it's side. I will say, however, the beds were soft and comfortable. We were only staying a night due to being in the area for a soccer tournament. Why anyone wants to stay in a hotel in Santa Cruz by their own choice is beyond me. My recommendation is for everyone to save their $ and for the same price stay an extra night in an ocean-view hotel room in Hawaii or something!

We stayed here for a weekend during a business trip to San Jose. The couple at the reception are so warm and hospitable, it almost didn't feel like a hotel. The location was superb, a mere 5 minute walk. The breakfast was good. I'd recommend this place any day.

Stayed here with 3 other adults, were impressed. Not fancy but clean and had very friendly and very helpful front desk, the woman helped us with directions and made us feel welcome. There is a great patio area on the top, several tables and chairs and a nice spot to relax. 5 minute walk to the boardwalk. I would stay here again.
