I have stayed here one other time years ago. Both times I enjoyed the stay. I chose this hotel primarily because they allow pets, the good price, and the easily accessible location. It is close (walkable) to downtown, the beaches, and only a short drive away to the college campus. Very centralized in the city of Santa Cruz.
I love the updates and modern-feel in the rooms and the lobby that have been added since my last stay. TVs are quality, with cable, and there is wifi (though very shaky from my room- the one downside). Patio and lobby area are super cute now. Decent continental breakfast with waffle makers. Free bike rentals for an hour.
I brought my two large dogs with me for the extra charge, which is not bad. They offer free doggy water bowls (and threw two large milkbones in!), filtered doggy water, dogs rags, and dog beds upon request! amazing!
There is no where on the hotel property to take dogs to bathroom (which is also nice- keeps things clean), so we just walked them a very short ways away to a tan bark patch between the Bay Front hotel and a hotel next door. Also, if you cross the street right in front of that hotel, there is a huge grassy park and area to take your dogs. Very convenient.
Decently quiet even though its usually filled up with guests, family friendly, pet friendly, good location, great price. Definitely worth a simple and short trip.
