“Good place, close to beach”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

This place was walking distance to beach and boardwalk. Rooms are small, but clean. Place is older, but well kept. Pool is small, but clean. Good value for this place. Breakfast was coffee and Danish. Staff was all very friendly, evening when we arrived and morning to check out. I would stay again here.

I took my two boys on a surprise trip to Santa Cruz. I am a avid researcher when it comes to where to stay. The reviews plus price/location added up for me (and Excel) for this Comfort Inn.

When we arrived I could not figure out where to park. There was simply no place. The owner came out and showed me where I could (illegally) park. Um. OK.

The room was reserved and the lobby was very clean. The staff was helpful and kind. We got to the room and it was standard, newly remodeled. Granite counter tops, tiled bathroom, flat screen TV. Very comfortable beds. Both firm and soft pillows. Very clean. No dresser though, just a laminate bookcase. Good closet space.

The boardwalk is 2 blocks away. There are two convience stores along the way that sell everything.

We slept very well that night, the curtains were not quite dark enough, there are blackout shades, but they let in light. So I used one of the pants hangers to clip the half thick drapes shut. It was very dark after that. We all slept so well.

Breakfast was mediocre. Good fresh fruit. Good typical waffles (also blueberry offered), toast, coffee (only half and half offered). The eggs were á la Egg McMuffin. Circular with yolk intact inside. Ugh. The sausage was slimy and inedible. Juice was OK, cereal was not stale and good yogurt selection.

Water pressure was phenomenonal, shallow tub, unusable for an adult soak. Their shampoo was like water. Bring your own. Towels were huge, fluffy and adequate.

Checking out was a snap. Staff was very friendly throughout and asked me to review here. Would stay here again for sure. I actually drove around and checked out the other motels that were similarly priced and ugh, I would be weary of them. Stay here, you won't be disappointed.

We stayed at the Comfort Inn for 2 days in May in a Twin Bedroom. The rooms have been refurbished recently, the beds were supercomfy with a choice of 2 different pillows and proper duvets. Everything was really clean and nicely decorated. The room could have been bigger but in the end the actual size was perfectly sufficient.
The distance to the beach is just perfect, just a couple of minutes walk and you're at the boardwalk.
There is a light breakfast in the morning with toast, eggs, sausage, cereal, pancakes, fruit, yoghurt and coffee which was a good start into the day.
Staff was very helpful and friendly. The pool is located directly in the parking lot which is a bit strange but seems to be quite common. The pool is tiny and wasn't as clean as it should be. Anyway it was too windy and cold to take a swim.
All in all very good value for money and a top location.

Room Tip: As for rooms on the first floor but only if you don't mind walking a couple of stairs.

Stayed here forgone night on a road trip. It was what we expected for the price. It was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was included and was a nice touch.
Location is brilliant. You pay for what you get and we thought it was on the money.

We stayed here on a road trip home and while the beds are nice n comfy and location to beach n boardwalk is great the cleanliness was not so great. There was hair in the bed on the pillows stains on our sheets and that was the second room the first smelt like cigarette smoke. Staff was ok not the above and beyond type of customer service i would expect. Very bad parking . Breakfast was ok. The ac in a room didnt work...had to set it to 60 just to get it on and we all sweat all night long. When u pay for the room u are paying for location ...room is a 60-70 dollar room and very small size wise.

The staff was extra friendly. The room was clean and bed comfortable. Nothing fancy, but I wasn't looking for that. There were noisy neighbors below us but we weren't able to hear them once it got later. The rooms were well insulated from noise.

Stayed for one night after summer season in November. The city was preatty much dead ( with the exception of the Warf walk).
Comfort Inn met my expectation, and comparing to other mostel I ve stayed in US it was above average standard.
Pros:
-Great location right in the middle of the main beach in Santa Cruz (some rooms have even see view) and easily accessible to H1.
-Clean room, although a bit small in comaprison to otehr mostels
-Good, basic buffet breakfast included
-Professional staff at the reception
Cons
-Small room
-Swimming pool was located next to Parking and water was cold ( outside summer season)

Room Tip: Sea view rooms have better view, but are louder and more expensive)
