A bit cool at night. Parking is an issue. Good location. Though pets are allowed, there are no designated grassy areas. Access to the building was not explained. There is a Keurig machine for coffee. Nothing to heat water for tea, for the non-coffee drinkers. A small refrigerator is nice for those staying longer. The room was very clean. The cable and TV remote is for the more advanced in technology.

"Nice hotel close to Boardwalk"
We had a top floor two king bed room. There was a smell of body odor upon entering the room. We were happy that the hotel was relatively quiet.

Amazing views. Directly across the street from the beach. Boardwalk and pier. We stayed for two days and didn't use our car once. You can hear the waves crashing all night. Beautiful stay. Friendly staff.

"location make it still worth it"
Stayed many times at this hotel. Recent remodel but nothing really upgraded. Pool decking and new pool bar nice additions. The new hot tub was also an improvement. Rooms appeared exactly the same with new wall paper. I rated the hotel marginal as it seemed very dirty. A strong vomit smell permeated the corridors outside of the pool rooms. Bird droppings on the tile decking needs to be attended to. I would recommend to a friend simply because of the location. There is not another hotel in Santa Cruz directly on the beach.

"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.

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!

"Wonderfully comfortable, and close to everything!"
We were thrilled with our room and with the very helpful staff. The room was clean, the amenities were good and the location was perfect...close to everything we wanted to get to! We would have appreciated a coffeemaker in the room, but the hotel does provide free coffee and continental breakfast in the lobby, so that was helpful. We are definitely going to book here again, and recommend to all of our friends for their trips to the area!

    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.
