“Great place to stay!”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

I am happy to say that my stay was great. This was due to a clean updated room and the nicest, most helpful motel owner I've ever encountered. It goes to show you how caring helpful people can make a difference and set a tone for your entire vacation. Stay here and you will be very happy. New windows were recently installed and our bathroom was upgraded. Also close to good food options and walking distance to the town.

We were looking for a good reasonable place to stay in Santa Cruz.
We found the proprietors to be friendly and very accommodating.
Our room was very clean and comfortable with a good internet connection.
There is a good free breakfast in the morning.
The Hotel is within walking distance of the town center and the ocean.
We will definitely stay there again.

I was looking for a reasonably priced hotel for my family. Granted, this hotel is old, and a bit run down. However, our room was very clean. All of the carpets in the hotel were being professionally cleaned when we showed up. The waffle breakfast was very good. The owner, Mr. Patel, was very nice and asked us several times how our stay was going. He seemed to want to make everyone's stay a pleasant one. I would definitely stay here again when visiting Santa Cruz.

Clean hotel with good fast internet and close enough to most of the attractions. The neighborhood it was in wasn't the nicest, but it wasn't bad either- just not at the beach or in the trendy areas. Breakfast was good and typical of a Quality Inn. For the price I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

The room was fine. However, I noticed an additional charge of about half of the total bill. Apparently, they place a one night's hold on funds. Even though I paid in full with my card. I had an additional $150.00 hold plus the regular charges for the room. I have never had a hold like this at any hotel I have ever stayed at. We checked out on Sunday, it's now Weds and the $150.00 pending transaction is still on my account! I don't think I will stay there again due to this. Very inconvenient!!

The staff sold our rooms, i can only assume to make an extra buck on the rates we had. We had confirmation numbers and were in the lobby to check in at 3:00pm and we were told they sold our rooms earlier that day. They were rude about it and reluctant to give the bosses contact info. The hotel is pretty much a dump to start, but to top that off with a lame staff makes this the top of the list of places not to stay!!!
