For two years in a row now my kids and I have come here for Mother's Day weekend. There's nothing glitzy or glamorous about the place it's just a nice, clean place to stay with a friendly staff. I like that it's right across the street from the pier and Boardwalk. We come, we enjoy, we relax. There is a...

Santa Cruz is a cool town, definitely unique. It seems that things are on a different schedule here and not everything is perfect. But, that's ok, because it's Santa Cruz. I had the opportunity to stay at this hotel on a short trip to the Bay Area. The rooms did the job, I stayed in a non-ocean view for two...

My boyfriend and I come to Santa Cruz a lot. It's one of our favorite places to visit. We discovered this little gem last year and have since stayed a few times. However, this last time we stayed was by far the best!!! We were upgraded to a bigger room and on our first night, we were greeted with a...

I found the staff to be very friendly and knowledgeable about all the local attractions. The view was fantastic. It was just a short distance to the Boardwalk. The room was very clean. Parking was ample. I look forward to staying here the next time we return to Santa Cruz.

We booked the 3 bedroom 2bathroom for 3 adults 4 kids through booking.com but when we got there we got a room and a "bed" in the living with 1 bathroom and showed the staff what we've reserved but was told that the room we booked is occupied. The bathroom is small. The pool is disgusting! It shows that it...

Staff was great and accomodated our extra vehicle. Rooms are very nice with a fireplace and full kitchen. We had a room that had no view and didn't have it's own courtyard/patio as some do so if you want either of those things, you need to inquire ahead of time. The whirlpool bathtub is great but use caution if you...

I found a deal on booking.com. Room number was not specific so I called hotel directly. Marian spent about 10 friendly minutes answering all my questions including what room number I was getting so I could check it out online.

This is a great place for a family looking to do a few days in Santa Cruz and minimize the driving. Easy access to both the beach and the boardwalk is a huge plus. The rooms were everything we needed for a family of 4 and provided plenty of living space. Don't count on the breakfast in the morning being...

“larger rooms with kitchenettes, would have liked to have the extra room for the two of us. We stayed in a single with a king bed.”
  • This was a small single room with a King bed. Nice decor! Clean!
  • Kind of hard to take a shower in this tub. Fun to have the fireplace in the bathroom.
