"Amazing Customer Service! "
Me and my fiance stayed over there for 2 nights, they were remodeling the roof right on top of our room so we were woken up around 9 am after coming back so late the night before, we walked over to the lady at the counter and let her know it was too noisy for us and that it was waking us up. Previously we upgraded to the beachview room so we asked if it was okay to switch back to the original room we were given and she said that as soon as they finished cleaning up the rooms and people check out we'd be able to get the first room available! So we went out onto the boardwalk which is like a 10 min walk from the hotel and she called us about 30 min later to let us know our new room was ready. We were shocked when we walked into the new room because it seemed like an upgrade compared to the other rooms, the lady at the counter is such an amazing person, she refunded us for both nights that we would'v stayed in the beachview room and couldn't have been more sweet and understanding! I will definately be coming back here for every trip to Santa Cruz!

"Great hotel location"
This hotel is in a great location about 5 min walk from the beach, wharf and Boardwalk. Also downtown is only 10 min walk away. Rooms are ok but floors not clean. Pool and hot tub are great and nice area to relax at the end of day. Continental breakfast is also on par with other hotels but has more room than others we have been to.

"Nicer than expected"
We were pleasantly surprised by our accommodations. The room looked like it had been remodeled. Everything looked new. Bed was very comfortable and it was so close to the beach that we could walk there:) Also, free continental breakfast. We were in a downstairs room and in the wee hours of the morning it sounded like a herd of elephants were jumping around upstairs, but that is the only complaint.

"Decent hotel, close to boardwalk."
Hotel was average, friendly staff. Surrounded by roads so it was noisy and hard to drive in and out during the day. Parking was terrible! They sold spots to nontenants and the parking lot was already crowded. The manager let us park in his spot because there was no parking left. Someone's bikes were stolen out of their truck. Beware! No working cameras.

    Santa Cruz is calling — find the perfect hotel

    Everyone wants to score a deal on travel, but price is just one factor to consider when booking an unforgettable hotel. Whether you’re visiting family, attending a conference or taking a well-earned vacation in Santa Cruz, having an awesome experience should be a no-brainer.

    Hotwire will hook you up! From restful nights near your flight to that prime spot in the city’s heart, we’ve done our research to bring the best options to your fingertips. Book your Santa Cruz hotel with us now and start your next adventure.

    You’re not the average traveler — and we know it

    You’ve done your homework and know exactly where you want to go. We’re here to help with some Hotwire travel geek-approved tips on how to save on your booking.

    Get away for the weekend

    Hotels in bigger cities usually charge higher rates during the week, when people are traveling for business. Weekends can be a bargain! It’s the other way around for vacation spots, so if you’re looking for a beach escape, consider a mid-week trip.

    Give yourself some wiggle room

    If your plans are flexible, play around with some different travel dates – a shift of a few days either way can help you save big. Prices usually jump the weekends before and after popular holidays, so we recommend steering clear of them. Or consider visiting during the off-season, when prices are generally lower.

    Plan around big events

    Are prices surprisingly high? There might be a huge conference or festival in town. Consider shifting your dates if you can. Of course, if that’s why you’re going, you’ll have to bite the bullet. We’ll still work to get you the best rates out there.

    Noodle over new adventures

    Set aside time to plan what you want to see, taste and discover. Nothing completes a trip, big or small, like a few new experiences! Check city apps or area websites to find out what’s new and what events are happening during your stay. Even during a family reunion, you can detour to that locals-only fish taco stand or under-the-radar music club. Your cousins will be impressed.
