My stay was great from the time I checked in till I check out. The staff was very friend and helpful when we check in and answered all the questions I had about the hotel. The room I had booked was much larger than expected and really felt like a spa room. I really like the location of the hotel walking distance to the beach and down town Santa Cruz. I felt the hotel was a little out dated but other than that I was very please with my stay and will continue to book my future trip with this hotel.

"Our room lacked simple things, a desk for instance"
It was overall okay, but did not live up to our expectations. Our room did not have a desk for example, which is needed when one is on a business trip. The bathroom was very small and crowded. The hotel room was spacious, but lacked things of comfort overall. I needed to do a "late check-out." The fee for that would have been $100! NOT that the hotel was completely booked on a Wednesday afternoon! Parts of the experience was good, but generally speaking, the experience was disappointing.

"Pleasantly surprised"
The last time I stayed here with friends, we were in a room toward the back that had not been renovated. It was very outdated. However, this time, we got a room by the pool that had seemed like it had just been remodeled. It was very comfortable. I also was impressed with the breakfast. I've been to some with very limited choices, but they had a variety of breakfast foods and it was kept clean and replenished.

    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.
