Stayed here for a night with my husband. Everything with the rooms was pretty nice and having a small outdoor space was an added bonus. We were on the ground floor so we had a little patio instead of a balcony. The location really can't be beat for the price and there was plenty of parking too. The breakfast was good but really could have benefited from more protein because it was mostly muffins, bread, and fruit. I would definitely recommend it if you're looking for a place to explore the beach and boardwalk.

We stayed here for two nights on our road trip from Hollywood to Yosemite. It was perfect for us with clean comfortable room, free breakfast and free parking. It has a great location, less than a minute to the boardwalk! It is also close to the pier, beach and all attractions. Downtown area is 15-30 mins walk away depending how fast you walk (15 mins for our long legs!) where there are loads of bars, restaurants and shopping. I would definitely stay here again when I visit Santa Cruz :) Thanks for a great stay!

I did not feel at home at all!! Which is the whole point of vacation, so my family and I were pleased about this. I like that there is no carpet! This gave the room a cleaner of feeling. Great location. We will stay again.

What a great little Inn. The rooms are incredibly bright and cheerful. They feel very clean, and there are a lot of thoughtful touches added like little bags for sandy shoes, a broom to clean up the floor since there is no carpet, and good bathroom amenities in case you forgot something. The breakfast was limited but it was delicious and restocked often. The only reason we didn’t give it 5 stars is because there is no clock or coffee maker in the room. They offer coffee in the lobby all day, but I am a phene and need caffeine first thing in the morning

I’m glad you enjoyed your stay. While we don't provide coffee makers in the rooms, as you noted, fresh coffee is available in the lobby 24/7. I hope you will stay with us again soon!

Sincerely,
Lisa King
Director of Lodging Operations

This was so much better than the Wyndam we stayed at in San Jose. The room was great! It was spacious, super clean, beds were comfortable and good coffee and tea 24/7. Did I mention fresh rolls and fruit in the morning to get a quick start on your day? Also everyone was so nice, we felt very welcome. We will definitely stay here again. If you have kids, the location across the street from a HUGE amusement park and beach is perfect. Actually it was perfect for us as well. Be sure to check when the park is open if you are travelling with kids. There were some disappointed kiddos when we were there in March when it is open only on the weekends. Lovely experience!

Room tip: Third floor will give you limited views of the ocean.
