As with everything in life, it is a matter of priorities. The Sunny Cove Motel Apartments are older, connected apartments with a small kitchen. They are not fancy but are clean and well maintained. The bathroom was very small. I had to ask Jane for some silverware and bowls needed, which she provided. She is very helpful except when she has back pain, perfectly understandable, though at times inconvenient. I truly feel bad for her in that respect. I never met Bobby. We had mosquitoes, which my wife had to kill nightly. Not so many after the first night. None of the windows have screens on them except the bathroom. Jane could not help us as she is not the owner. That was really the only problem we encountered though. The beach is indeed a few minutes walk from the motel and is glorious. We watched kids surf and birds fly overhead, very nice. The pool is nice as well, goes to seven feet deep. The location is great, not far from any place in Santa Cruz you want to go. My wife and daughter were disappointed it was not more modern. It is indeed old and funky. For me, I don't care about that sort of thing. I want a clean place to sleep where everything works. We saved money by staying there. We also planned this vacation two weeks in advance so I feel lucky to have gotten in. Every apartment is different so I can't speak for most of the others. This one was nicer than the only other one available. It also had two tvs, which was convenient. We saw some of the Olympics. If you want a fancier, "nicer" place to stay, this is probably not the place for you. If you want a convenient, safe, reasonable place to stay, I would recommend the Sunny Cove. Again, it comes down to what is important to you.
I would also recommend the Henry Cowell State Park and The Mystery Spot, lots of fun!
