"Very nice for a low price"
I have stayed here twice. Rooms are clean and seem to be recently remodeled. Location not close to the beach but that was not the reason for my visit. Not particularly close to restaurants or other services. I would stay again. Keurig coffee maker was a nice touch.

"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.

"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.

we asked upon arrival about a ground floor room, normally you need to request this in advance. They got us a room on ground level with a king and a double bed and with our party of 3 we were tickled with this accommodation. (Had reserved a room with two queens) It was clean and comfortable.

"Spring Break"
I picked this spot so my daughter and I could have some quality time during her spring break. The rooms are recently renovated and very nice. The location is peaceful, you feel like you're up in the mountains but actually just minutes away from the beach and boardwalk. The main building/lobby/restaurant is very nice and has some beautiful views. The spa is clean and relaxing. Our first night was pretty bad with some noisy people out in the hallway, in the morning I asked to be moved to another room, the issue was addressed immediately and I got a new room. I was disappointed when my email requesting more info on spa treatments, specifically a package special was never answered. I ended up booking only a couple of facials.

    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.
