"Great time!!"
Great experience! Room was bigger than expected and I wish I would have known about it earlier. We would have spent a couple extra nights there. The indoor pool and jacuzzi was awesome... Especially since it was raining!!

"Nice hotel close to boardwalk"
Overall I was pleased with our stay here. We enjoyed the easy access to the pool and hot tubs in the courtyard, and they had a nice complimentary breakfast. The beach and boardwalk are only 2 minutes away!

"Nice hotel close to the beach and restaurants "
It was a decent hotel for the price and location. It was a two minute drive from the board walk, and a 5 minute drive to downtown.

"quick overnight stay"
Hotel is located in a central area which is convenient. The hotel rooms could be cleaner. There were stains on the blackout curtains, and spilled nail polish in a few areas. Doors did not have an additional security deadbolt, they should add immediately.

"Amazing & strategically located establishment!"
Misses and I stayed over memorial day weekend, we had 0 complaints other than the coffee was bad in their breakfast.( Considering all things not a big deal). We stayed in the side house, very clean, spacious, & easily accessible. On site parking was amazing. Didn't move the car for 3 days. 10 min walk to downtown, 5 min walk to the boardwalk. We will definitely be staying here from now on whenever we visit Santa Cruz. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing, 0 worry weekend. I can't say enough nice things about all the staff who were very polite, friendly and accommodating whenever possible. Worth the money for parking, location, privacy, & comfort. 10 out of 10 👍.

Staff not around much so plan on lugging your suitcases up and down some long stairways. Breakfast on a par with lower end hotels.

"Great Spot for reasonable price"
This spot surprised me. First off the front desk attendant was so nice and accommodating, I wish I got his name but he was fantastic. We were just travelling around and he gave us recommendations on places to see with maps and everything. Great person to have at your desk. We got up to our room and the size of the room shocked us, probably one of the most spacious rooms we've ever had. The room was clean, smelled clean, the bed was very comfortable, the TV had lots of channels and Wi-Fi worked great. In the morning you can make your own waffles and they were great! The hotel is within comfortable walking distance to the boardwalk which was a big plus. Being by the stairs and where the cleaning staff keep their carts can be a little noisy but not very long. Great place to stay, I would go back.
