"Expected Stay for Motel 8 for a night"
The Hotel was sufficient for one night stay for our family of 4. This is an old motel - do not expect more. Parking is very tight and you will receive a call in the morning while you are sleeping, to get up and move your car. There is a musky odor and the bathrooms are very old. The bed was okay for one night. If you have a room down stairs you will hear cars and the people above you. The good thing is that it is walking distance to the boardwalk. Breakfast was fine for the kids - waffles, juice, coffee etc. Staff was nice. Suggest not to stay if you are planning a romantic weekend. My wife suggest, to bring Febreeze and slippers and do not rely on the toiletries - possibly ear plugs

"Good value, close enough to the boardwalk "
This place is pretty nice. The rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. Some water damage in the bathroom ceiling. A little tight for a family of 4 and the bathroom is really really small.....like you can't open the door if you're on the toilet small. Pool is in a separate building across the street. Staff if awesome and super friendly.

    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.
