“Great night stay”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

We have just stayed at the Casablanca 21/05/14.the location as stated in all reviews was outstanding . The views from our rooms (16&17) were amazing looking across to the pier.
The rooms were very comfortable,the only downfall was the carpets were in need of a good clean .
There was ample free parking
Would I stay there again Absolutely.

We stayed only one night at the Casablanca hotel the location was great right across from the boardwalk and Warf, the view from the room was spectacular we even got to see a whale spouting right next to the peir at the end of the Warf from our balcony of our room which made our day. The room was old spacious but could really use an update but for the price it was worth the stay. It was also nice that they only required 1 nights stay where all the other hotels wanted a minimum of 2 nights so that was a pluse. Overall the hotel is nice there looked to be other options of rooms at different price points so I would recommend this hotel

Perfect location. Nice room - plenty of space. Shared balcony - beautiful. Reasonable rate. Great views. Great air movement through room.

But...reservation system not working when we checked in. Took about 15 minutes to get it back. In the morning requested another night but reservation system down again. Also, window facing ocean opens wide but with no screen. Cold water faucet in sink doesn't turn.

Undergoing lots of upgrades so should be great in the future, especially if they keep the rates reasonable.

You can't beat the location....right across from beach, beach volleyball, Santa Cruz pier. We used a wonderful Groupon offer for this place which made it all very affordable and worthwhile. I love Santa Cruz but usually stay elsewhere because the hotels/inns at or near beach are typically very expensive dumps. This place is old but has great potential. We learned that new owners had just taken over this property days prior. The previous owners had owned it only 3 years or so and obviously did nothing to improve or renovate property except paint the rooms. I can only speak about our room - Room 21 which had great ocean view.

I provided this information when we checked out: one of the curtain rods was hanging down and was quite obvious, bathroom window would not stay up and there was no screen (we used paper towel roll that was mistakenly left in our room to prop window up), sink drain would not close, shower water still came out of tub faucet, wood & wicker furniture in room needed replacing or at very least.....painting/fixing.

If you get great deal, then stay here. Otherwise, I would never pay the typical high summer rates which could also apply to other times of year until this proper is renovated.

Continental breakfast was included which was very good for continental breakfast....cut-up fruit, good breads.

My daughters and granddaughters and I came to Santa Cruz for a quality time getaway to celebrate Mother's Day. We stayed at the Casablanca Inn in the Family Suite. It was awesome!! The suite gave us everything we needed in sleeping and visiting space. We were within walking distance for the boardwalk, the wharf and of course the beach. The employees were all very friendly and helpful!! The privacy of our own little garden area was an added benefit. The kids played and the adults talked with no worries of little ones running into the street because it has a large fence. It gave us a real feeling of seclusion. We will be coming back for sure over the summer. I will highly recommend Casablanca Inn to everyone I know. Thank you for making our Mother's Day weekend so special!!

Room Tip: The Family Suite is awesome, accommodating and spacious.

My wife is very picky about cleanliness of rooms. She was impressed...wow. This says a lot!! It was a nice clean room. We had "middles terrace" rooms, my daughter and son in law, too! Big deck in front of the middle terrace rooms, third level up. Great view of the beach and pier. Greatly enjoyed the deck, view, rooms! Had a great time!! there are a lot of different type rooms; we enjoyed ours.

Room Tip: there are four middle terrace rooms...two have kitchenettes, two don't ... room 23 no kitchen, k...

We had the best time and stay in santa cruz last week to start our vacation the room was great but the view was better we can't wait to go back. We have stayed elsewhere near the beach but the price was higher and no view.
