We really enjoyed our stay. Sharon at the front desk is awsome. Very close to beach, just a walk down the driveway, the boardwalk is 5 minutes from motel. All around had a great experience, will be back in September to stay at Edgewater.

My family includes a 2-year old and a 5-year-old and this year will be our third staying at the Edgewater.

Now, when I travel for business I stay in the best hotels in the world (Ex. Biltmore, AZ, Westin, Los Cabos) so I know what a nice hotel is like. This is a beach motel, don't come here expecting more than that.

If you want a place that has kitchens, a pool, picnic tables, and where you can walk to the boardwalk, the pier or just the beach, a little liquor/grocery store and within 1.5 miles of downtown Santa Cruz this is your place.

We will return annually until our children have outgrown our beach vacations - hopefully never.

If you travel with pets and are not planning on staying for more than a couple of days, its a great place to stay, but if your looking for a clean and kept-up room you better go somewhere else.
The service was bad and the room was dirty. We actually had to call them into the room to reclean. The bathtub was not cleaned the whole time we were there even after they were called back in to reclean and the floor in the kitchen and bath were not touched.
In the mornings you didn't need an alarm clock, you were awaken by the sound of loud showers and hissing pipes. All-in-all an OK place but not our first choice.

We had a lovely stay at this small motel. It's not luxurious, but they're just across the street from the Santa Cruz wharf, easy walking distance to the beach and Beach Boardwalk. I LOVED the fact that I didn't have to find and pay for parking along the beach (if you've ever tried to find parking in this area, you'd understand).

We had a suite with two queen beds and a sofa sleeper in the living room. The kitchen and the accommodations were fine and clean. There's a swimming pool, too. All in all, it was reasonably priced and the location can't be beat. (The nearby Coast Hotel would be nearly triple the price). We'd stay there again.

It was a comfortable, reasonably priced hotel in a nice part of town. The staff was great and we had a wonderful time. We had no problem with our reservations.

Don't even waste your time trying to make a reservation at the Edgewater Beach Motel!! A confirmed room booking can be cancelled on you without notice at any time; this is what happened to me this October. My reservation was made directly by the motel personnel (!) only a week before the scheduled arrival. I received a proper confirmation number but when I arrived at the motel, I was informed that there was no room available for me and my husband. Showing my valid confirmation number made the motel staff slightly surprised but did not help much. All in all, we found a room at another hotel with some help from the Edgewater Beach Motel staff, but frankly, the frustration and anger we had to go through on the first day of our vacation was unforgivable. Don't risk that the same happens to you; find a different place to stay.
