Basic room, showing wear, especially in the bathroom where the drywall could really use some attention. Comfortable beds, lots of pillows. Good TV, usual microwave and fridge. Surprisingly quiet, given its proximity to the wharf and beach. Free parking, and we were allowed to stay parked there after checkout for several hours, which was very convenient. Not going to win...

As a motel this is perfect. Free breakfast, free parking, free wifi. Clean room, may recently have had a lick of paint too. We phoned around 7pm to see if they had rooms, they had one left and the guy promised to save it for me. When we arrived 2hrs later sure enough it was there for us. Quick easy...

After my previous night's stay up the coast I wasn't holding out much hope since this hotel was nearly a third of the price. How wrong can you be!?! The motel is within 2 minutes walk of the beach and pier. Rooms are spotless and well appointed (no tea/coffee facilities in room but for this price I wasn't complaining, especially...

This Hotel was clean but if your looking for the Hilton it is not your place. Typical room with air conditioner on the wall that runs off and on all night. Very close to the Beach and if you need a room for a night it is ok.....

Lovely little motor inn 30 seconds walk from the beach, and five minutes walk from the Santa Cruz board walk amusement park. Our queen room was tastefully decorated in a modern style, and had a fridge and microwave as well as TV and large bathroom/sink area. The bed was comfortable, the parking was free - perfect spot for a quick...

We were not expecting much of this motel, but what a nice surprise! starting on arrival with a very friendly and helpful staff. The motel is located 5 minutes walk from the beach and the pier. Room was comfortable, clean. Continental breakfast is a bit limited, but otherwise it is a very good place to stay.

Yes, our expectations weren't too high, but this place scores "very good" on the 'value chart'! Great location... no doubt! Dated? Absolutely! However, besides a very dirty carpet and noisy refrigerator, the place did good! All the plumbing and electrical worked great! Good shower! Comfortable bed... decent TV... enough room, and the husband/wife owners were quite friendly and helpful. I...

Your standard motel with all the basics you will need (microware, fridge, aircon and etc). It was clean and close to the sea. Recommend if you need to stay somewhere on the budget. The only downside- some people actually live in the motel and they were quite loud at night. (People were drinking outside on the stairwell)

We paid a really low price for our room and chose the hotel for location, not luxury, and we got exactly what we expected. The room was large, clean and everything worked (TV, wifi, shower etc), even the air conditioning although it was pretty noisy. The only member of staff we met was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very...

The rooms are cozy with all basic amenities except they don't have refrigerators and microwave. But they do provide complimentary breakfast and free wifi. The room is conveniently located near boardwalk. One can easily walk to Main beach, covell beach, west cliff drive, explanatorium, Wharf and many restaurants and cafe nearby. We had an awesome time in Santa Cruz and...
