The property is old, tired but clean. It is a great location for the Santa Cruz Boardwalk. The staff is friendly and a very light breakfast is available.

We stayed for a single night on our route around the coast. The room was very large for our party of 5. A pull out bed from the sofa alongside 2 queen beds. A nice walk to the fun fair and restaurants. Very comfy bedding and pillows. Nice bathroom faculties including hairdryer. The only downside was there was no lift...

Let's start from the beginning...I booked online for $289 for one night. While my children and I were at the boardwalk I got a call on my cell phone from an angry manager. It was 10pm and I apparently should have already checked in. The Boardwalk doesn't close until 1 Am but we cut our fun short so we could...

Horrible...one look and you would choose your car over this motel. The manager of the hotel across the street advised us it was scheduled for demolition next year due to complaints. The pool was filled with construction debris/trash, the hotel is a "paint peeling Carolina blue". The only good part was they agreed to allow me to cancel my reservations,...

I made a reservation online and thought I made it for another super 8. I immediately called and was told I could not switch it or get my money back. We checked in and found a hotel that was the worst we had ever seen. We did not stay he night due to feeling unsafe and horrible condition of place....

I thought staying with a chain meant they would be up to their normal standards. Boy were we wrong. They allowed us to check in early but told us to come back at 2 (the normal check in time), no problem. We came back at 2:45 and the room door wasn't closed so I asked the housekeeper if it was...

The manager was rude because I am under 21 and you have to be 21 and over to check in. I told him that reservation services didn't tell me that detail and he said "can't you read?" Otherwise, the room was clean enough (small stains on the blanket so I slept on top of the comforter) but it was a...
