"Small hotel, close to the beach"
We stayed there a night to conclude our west coast road-trip. Santa Cruz itself was really disappointing but the hotel was more than decent. Conveniently placed walking distance to the pier and the boardwalk. The tenant seemed really nice, the facilities were basic, nothing fancy, but the bed was comfortable and the breakfast decent! Would recommend […] it for a cheap night, not more! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I had read that others who had stayed here had been give room keys to already occupied room. Durning our stay they gave another couple keys to our room. Very disappointed! I told the man at the front desk that he should read there hotel reviews and that they really need to take this seriously! People have all there belonging in there room and that this […] shouldn't happen! He assured me that they didn't take anything...but that's not the point. He seemed to be defensive and a little rude. I sure hope that this hotel takes a look at how they distribute keys. But it was a nice hotel otherwise. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location ,best deal"
The room is very clean and the bed is very comfortable ,the staffs is very nice and friendly .it locate in a great safe location very close to BroadwalkGenuine Expedia guest review
"Better than expected"
Room was updated and modern with a comfy bed. Price is probably because you are less than 2 blocks away from the boardwalk, but could have been cheaper (especially during off season). Still a great, clean, friendly place to stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
comfy bedsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best part is location one block from the beach"
Has a nice time, location near beach was great. Free breakfast was fine and the price was right.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location and wonderful staff"
Not sure what the going rate for this hotel is but we got a last minute deal. You can't beat the location. Walking distance to the Boardwalk and Wharf. Lots of bike trail access. The rooms were small but comfortable and in good condition (although the bed was a more firm than I prefer). The parking was tight, but doable. The front desk staff was so […] friendly and accommodating. Great experience and recommended for families or couples. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to beach and boardwalk"
The hotel was worth the price. Clean, fairly well kept, and great location. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast, bedding, and pool left something to be desired.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The rooms were very clean staff were on top of it to keep it clean. Front desk clerk was very nice. Only flaw wish there was a sitting area to have a couple beers or barbecue.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location if you are visiting the boardwalk!"
We stayed here on our drive down the California coast. This is a very convenient place to stay if you have kids are hoping to go to the boardwalk. It's only two blocks away and includes parking. Nice to have a place to walk back to take a break. Our room had the typical amenities for a motel (frig, microwave, complimentary coffee). Room was small but […] clean. A very small pool in the front which we did not use. Breakfast was included in small office / registration area. Overall, good value if you are looking for a no frills, clean place to stay near the Boardwalk. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was 1 block away from the main entrance to the Boardwalk. Breakfast could have been better but for the money spent, it was a great buy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
December, 2013 - Spent a night with my two grandkids, went to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk (which is walking distance just down the road). The Boardwalk rides and arcades were really fun. The beds were very comfortable and everything was quite acceptable. The complimentary breakfast the next morning was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Simple comfort close to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk"
We came in specifically to enjoy the boardwalk and this hotel did not disappoint. It is right down the street, practically in spitting distance, and the manager who checked us in (Prince) was extremely helpful. There aren't frills (besides an awesome breakfast) and the room isn't big but it's great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Location and cleanliness"
Hotel is just one block to boardwalk and the room was very clean with new mattress and comforterGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pleasantly surprised. Nice modern clean room."
Pleasantly surprised. Nice modern & clean room, short walk to the boardwalk. The only downside is that there is a shortage of parking spaces. The parking lot is small & cramped. We stayed in the upstairs back corner so it was very quiet.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the boardwalk"
Parking lot is awkward and small. The room was nice and updated, but was not very clean. There was other peoples hair in the corner in the bathroom and on the bathroom door. The room was pretty small. There was no dresser, just a bookshelf. It is close to the beach boardwalk.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very professional and extremely helpful. Nice room and location was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"friendly staff good location"
good and clean. decent breakfast with sausages and boiled egg included. how a motel should be but many others are not.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"2 blocks from the Broadwalk"
The room was small for four people. The rooms needs to be updated. We were told by the people that worked in the hotel not to move our car cause we will not get another parking spot. The best thing about this hotel is that it is 2 blocks from the Broadwalk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good location, small rooms, and little parkingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was good. The room was a lot better than I thought it would be, however they did not have extra toiletries, there was only one roll of toilet paper and not many towels. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Thank you.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very close to boardwalk"
My only issue with hotel was there is not enough parking slots for the guests, what city would approve a hotel without enough parking? You double parked and had to give your keys to front desk. I wonder if they don't sell parking spots and that is why there is none left. But the room was clean and quiet except for crying baby next door. The front desk […] person was "just watching" it for his uncle, didn't know anything about the boardwalk or the discount tickets they supposedly sell. Decided not to stress about it. Breakfast was decent. Overall nice and close to boardwalk. Expensive but we had no choice. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Pretty good free breakfast, walk to boardwalk, rooms were clean. Pool was extremely small just a little bigger than a spa, but was fine for us with our 2 year old.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"CLOSE TO THE BOARDWALK"
ENJOYED THE ROOM AND HOW CLOSE THE ROOM WAS TO THE BOARDWALKGenuine Expedia guest review
The staff at the hotel was amazing. The gentleman that checked us in noticed where we parked when we arrived and gave us the room right next to our car. Parking was very tight there, so we appreciated the gesture:-) Continental Breakfast was way more than we expected. Very enjoyable. When we checked out we still wanted to go sight seeing and asked if […] we may leave our vehicle in the lot. Since it was a Monday afternoon, they were not very busy and the staff was very accomodating. The location to the Boardwalk was also amazing. About 3 blocks away. We will definitely be staying here again when we return to Santa Cruz!! Thank you to all the staff for making our stay wonderful:-) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Boardwalk access but not beautiful neighborhood"
While the neighborhood is safe and clean, this hotel is located just a few blocks from the boardwalk and a nice walk to the pier, but there are some seedier looking housing units in the area, so this is not a picturesque locale. Hotel breakfast is good and plentiful, with make your own waffles, etc. Outdoor pool is midget-sized but an unexpected bonus […] for rinsing off or cooling off for kids. Parking is tight, but saves you from paying on the street or in the lot. Check out is a bit early (11 am), but you can probably leave your car for a few hours while checking out the beach on check-out day. Overall a good value if you like the boardwalk end of SC.

"good location, comfortable, good breakfast"
Worked well for us. Though was disappointed to find hair all over the bathroom wall and bathtub. The towels did not seem fresh either. Good location for the boardwalk and for participating in the Santa Cruz Triathlon. My husband and kids enjoyed the breakfast. It wasn't early enough for me with having to leave by 7 AM for the triathlon.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient and accomodating"
This hotel is conveniently close to the boardwalk. The owners/managers were excellent and accommodating. I would stay there again and highly recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not too impressed"
The room was clean and looked nice, that's all this hotel had going for it. It was loud, there was no hot water, the breakfast was a joke along with being very poorly places in an overcrowded lobby. The lady at the front desk didn't even look up from her magazine when I approached her to check out. I was very disappointed and pretty upset that I spent […] as much money on the room as I did.

"easy walking to boardwalk and peir"
our famliy had one our best times ever never a bad momentGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to boardwalk, not parking"
Room was clean, nicely decorated and looked to be somewhat recently renovated. Parking lot is too small for the number of rooms and street parking is bad because of proximity to the boardwalk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice motel for the money and convenient location...within walking distance of all entertainment required. Motel in very good condition. Nice breakfast, except the eggs did not have yolks. Friendly staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was ok but definitely overpriced for our needs. We were just staying for a couple of days and took day trips. We didn't even get to the boardwalk except for one evening. The parking lot is very small and only fits all the cars if they double park people in. They then move the cars in the morning as needed. We had to park on the street one night because […] it was all full even double parked and the office was closed. Very relaxed atmosphere, almost too relaxed and not very professional, desk person was wearing a t-shirt and jeans. It was too cold to swim but the pool is very small. It was ok but will think about staying somewhere else next time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean room, and only a few minute walk to the boardwalk. Parking was a little tight. (parking spaces were close together) But a convenient place to stay if you are going to frequent the beach and boardwalk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved the location of the hotel. We were in Santa Cruz for an event. We left early Sun. morning to attend our event and were returning before check-out to use our room to freshen up. When we returned, out room was occupied to another group. Upon questioning the clerk, he said he "thought" we checked out. We never did so. We did remove our luggage from […] the room but did not check out for a reason. I was disappointed that we did not get the full use of our room. The clerk blamed it on housekeeping.

"Great place - close to boardwalk"
It was a typical Comfort Inn - nothing fancy, but OK. Only complaint is that there is hardly any parking, so we had to park across the street in a grass lot for free. No problems with that.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel in a great location"
My granddaughter & I stayed for 2 nights. Walked easily to Boardwalk. Room was clean, beds very comfy. Parking is a bit of a pain, small parking lot, but staff helped with maneuvering around other vehicles.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect location, great little motel!"
Pleasantly surprised! Nice little motel, about a 5 minute walk to the boardwalk. Very clean. Nice little breakfast included in the morning. Book during the week for better prices.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great little hotel"
Comfortable, clean room, friendly staff, and a great location walking distance to both town and the boardwalk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay when visiting the boardwalk"
Very clean. Very helpful and courteous staff. Years ago I would not consider staying in this neighborhood, but Santa Cruz has done a great job revitalizing the area. Easy walk to beach and Boardwalk. Lots of families at hotel. I would stay there againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Boardwalk"
Enjoyed our stay, older hotel but kept up very well. It was clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"2 Blocks from the Boardwalk"
Close to the Boardwalk, but not so close you can hear the hustle and bustle. Clean rooms and friendly staff. WiFi worked fine with no issues. The Continental Breakfast included fresh waffles, you make them yourself and have a choice of plain or blueberry. The Bedspread looked a bit dated however, when we arrived, they were measuring for new linens which […] should arrive soon. I would stay there again Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was overpriced due to the location and the room smelled a bit musty. But they were nice and the breakfast was okay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"best nite away from home"
This room was the most comfortable I have ever stayed in with great location to surrounding amenitiesGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not bad for a beach hotel"
I would actually rate this better than a 2 star hotel. The front desk was nice. He originally gave us a downstairs room, that sat at the base of the stairs...and the door didn't shut completely. I went back and told him that it would never do, people coming an going and a door that lets all sounds in. He quickly changed our room to a better one on the […] second floor. It was clean and surprisingly quiet. I had low expectations as most beach hotels are overpriced sandy dumps, and therefore this exceeded my expectation. It's a lovely walk from there to anywhere.

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at this motel. Great location, clean, and well maintained. Good value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Room nice enough but..."
Our room was comfortable and clean but the management allowed what appeared to be long term guests to sit and party in front of their room. Beer cans and chairs were left out. We left the AC on to drown out the noise. I will not stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, friendly staff"
It is just a block from the boardwalk. Nice breakfast in the morning. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great value for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice, cozy place - could use some improvements"
Pros: Neat, cozy room with a microwave, fridge and lcd tv. Optimum utilization of space. 1 block away from boardwalk - eliminates the need to drive and find parking near the boardwalk. Hotel staff are well-mannered, pleasing and helpful. For the cons - neighborhood isnt great - gets lonely and silent after the boardwalk closes. exterior of the hotel […] needs a facelift. while the interiors were great, i felt the door felt old and unsafe. breakfast was just ok - needs more variety and better quality cheese and bread Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
