As noted in other reviews, for some reason, Santa Cruz lodging properties command premium rates while generally being pretty tired. This property is no exception. It has a location within walking distance of both downtown S.C. and the beach, which is really nice. The rooms are large and there is good parking at the property. The staff is friendly and helpful. The property is tired, however. The rooms look dated because they have elderly carpet and decor; the bathroom in our unit looked especially worn and there were holes in the wall behind the door into the room. There was an argumentative family on the other side of the door in the 'adjoining' room. There are no comfortable chairs in the room and no table. You're clearly supposed to be spending your time at the beach and just sleeping in the room. If that's your style - no worries; this is the place for you. Don't plan on hanging around reading at the pool, though - the pool, furniture is in pretty poor repair.
On the whole, this is an OK property for young families on a budget who want to be close to the beach and want to stay at a property where the kids can pretty much roam freely. Older folks need not bother, nor should anyone on a 'romantic' getaway - this place will dampen your romantic flame pretty quickly.More
