It is always difficult to determine what rating to assign to a hotel. Is the hotel being rated on value, amenities, location? This rating is based primarily on value. There is nothing special here with regard to amenities or location. But the price was reasonable, the room was extremely clean, there was no noticeable street noise even though the front...

A really nice stay. Good breakfast, including eggs and sausage if you wanted it. Big rooms that have been renovated. No chemical smells or odors of any kind in the room. Easy to find channels on TV. No elevator for the second floor so be sure and get ground floor if you need it. Quiet, must be well insulated as...

Booked a room through the government travel system at the last minute. My credit card didn't go through (no fault of the hotel), there was no contact information on my reservation, I didn't get in until 11:00 and even though my room was the last one available the owner didn't give my room away. Owner is extremely kind and helpful,...

This was a really great choice for a weekend trip to Santa Cruz. The room was very clean and spacious. The walk to the boardwalk about about 30 minutes, but was a little unpleasant due to how loud and busy the road was. I would suggested driving or taking an Uber. Overall, a great value!

I stayed here w/ my crew for a music video shoot. The place couldn't have been better. The hotel management accommodated us last minute, and made our stay very pleasant. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. It's clean, in a nice location, and is very affordable. Thanks again!

Room was extremely clean and more spacious than most hotels in this price range. Reception was helpful and prompt. No complaints and great deal. Location is along a major strip of chain hotels/motels of which this is probably the best reviewed.

Good hotel for Santa Cruz, handy for down town, rooms were good and clean, friendly reception people, would recommend if you are looking to stay in Santa Cruz. Parking outside the room so it's handy for your vehicle.

My wife and I stayed here in October of 2016 and were happy to come back in March of 2017, I have family in San Jose and Watsonville so this was a great location for us. Very clean, my wife was pleased how clean the room and grounds were.

Our room was in the back on the third floor. The room was spacious with all the usual amenities. Our host was very friendly. The continental breakfast included eggs and sausage. The street was very busy but we weren't at all close to it. There were restaurants nearby.
