"Absurd pet fee !!! ABSURD !"
A four work and weekend get away with the family. Loved not staying in the middle o Santa Cruz, from all the reviews I read regarding the hotels near the boardwalk... they just seemed like a nightmare.( some reviewers had posted pictures of the other hotels, pictures like, mold, blood on the door, more mold, broken stuff, stained sheets etc ... ) This place made it feel easy and safe. However, they do not offer breakfast early, and the room coffee is below substandard... nobody wants that coffee !!! Make a pot in the lobby, make your clients happy ! And honestly my biggest thing about this place is the 30 dollar a night for pets ? Seriously ? ARE YOU SERIOUS ? I will never ever go back there unless they bring that charge to a normal rate like 10 or 15 bucks... but 30 ??? I could go on but I will give this place an OK review... however if you want to bring your pet go somewhere else... specially for multiple nights.

"No wifi and no help!"
The wifi did not work. We asked if we could simply be moved to a room where the wifi worked. The front desk attendant refused to move us and told us that we had to talk to their internet service provider. We talked to the ISP who told us that they could not fix the problem and to have the hotel move us to another room. The bottom line is the hotel took no responsibility for the problem. They should have moved us and dealt with the ISP themselves. Our frustration was not that the wifi didn't work, it was the poor attitude of the hotel. We won't be back.

Check in was simple and easy. Upon arrival to room lights were left on for easy entry. Litbfireplace and sat down to relax with family before bed. Setting up sofa couch for kids was quick cause the bed itself was already made.

We stay here often when in town visiting family. Clean rooms. Friendly staff. Nice property. It's 5 minutes from downtown Santa Cruz yet just far enough away from the bustle of the city.

"Miserable stay."
Pretty much a dump. Parking lot is super rough. I had to avoid pot holes and humps to prevent from scraping my undercarriage. The interior has T1 -11 siding in lieu of drywall. The carpet is filthy and stained. The furniture is uncomfortable and very dated. The bathroom is tiny and poorly updated. There is zero counter space to place toiletries/makup, the shower surround has been painted white and they missed a large section so the original lavender and teal show through. The room has no ac, but has heat. The heat is gas and the unit gets dangerously hot. The hot water is hard to regulate to a comfortable temp, you either get scalding or tepid water. The tv is tiny but fine. The bed is a miserable place to sleep. There seems to have been a plastic liner on the mattress or just cheap non-breathable polyester sheets that make you feel clammy while sleeping. Oh and half the shutters were broken and wouldn't stay open so the room was pretty dark. The view from the room was what I assume is the septic tank access area... so road cones and manhole covers surrounded by gravel... not pleasant. We we're one of maybe 10 people staying in the entire inn, so, I was quiet at night. The staff was nice enough. There was no continental breakfast... oh the coffee provided in room was decent... will never stay there again. We usually pay $30 more than this place and get a beautiful clean comfortable suite in Capitola that comes with a very generous continental breakfast, but we procrastinated.

"relaxing and comfortable stay"
We had a very relaxing time. We enjoyed our stay. The only issue we had was that the coffee and condoments were not refilled for the next morning after the room was cleaned. When we got back from our day we could smell the cleanliness. Our overall stay was excellent.

"Should and the should not of selling points!"
if a pool is in and can be safely used then offer it. To promise late hrs and claim 80° water. To only give run around on why the mgr can't leave front desk to open the pool is a big no no. The hrs of "sun up to sun down". Is not what The POOl posted hrs said 9-9 every day. A real letdown after. Fighting. The traffic to get to the location.

"Nice motel close to Santa Cruz"
Front desk staff were attentive and helpful. There is a restaurant adjacent to the motel's lobby, which is really convenient. If you wish to eat somewhere else though, you need to jump in the car and head down into Santa Cruz to find something. I liked it overall. The room was spacious and clean, as was the bathroom tub and shower. It is convenient in that it is right off highway 17, like within about 50 yards of it or so. While you can hear some road noise, I am a light sleeper and it didn't bother me at all.

Stayed here for 3 nights. The grounds were nice; our room faced the garden/pool area. Building was not recently remodeled but our room was clean and satisfactory. The room had a high ceiling which made it seem larger. Could have used a small table but apparently not enough room with the 2 queen beds, refridgerator, etc. The toilet water level was abnormally high and looked like it might overflow when flushed but had no problems. The restaurant/bar on site had great food and appeared popular with locals but only open in the evenings. Would stay here again.

"A 3.5 stars - good value w/minor issues!!!"
Hotel was very clean which is very important - easy access from the 17 freeway and before you get into the more congested areas of downtown Santa Cruz. Had two issues though: 1) keys stop working on the second night so they had to be reprogrammed, I don't if it was human error or equipment issues; and 2) heater broke the fourth night so I called and they sent in repair man to fix it within 20 mins and he did - perhaps they need to improve preventive maintenance. Overall I would give this hotel a 3.5 stars - I think it's if great value for the price paid.

"Mediocre motel"
The location is convenient to Santa Cruz points of interest, but the rooms are mediocre--no A/C so windows must be open, subject to noisy neighbors sitting outside their room next door, kids on skateboards, and worst of all, the neighbor smoking outside his room, smoke wafting into our room! :-( The lighting, wall outlets, and room decor were below standard. Bed had a hard plastic mattress pad, not comfortable. We will not be returning to this motel.

"Near to my heart"
My review is biased because I lived at Pasatiempo back in the 60's when my parents were the managers, so it is VERY special to me. Coming back to Pasatiempo, I was pleased to see that the place still looks great and the rooms have been updated. I forgot (after all these years) that the rooms do not have air conditioning. This was a problem for me the first night I stayed there because my room was very warm (85 degrees) and it took some effort to get it cooled down with just the ceiling fan, a box fan, and the window open.

"Good location and price"
Overall, the stay was good. The room had no air conditioning and only windows that opened to the parking lot, so it was a bit stuffy. There was a ceiling fan that helped. Everything was very clean and all but the shower were updated. It was odd that the shower had broken tiles and a drain that looked a bit scary when everything else looked so good. I would stay there again. I used the pool after dark and could find noone who knew how to turn on the lights.

Some issues in trying to send time-critical fax. Didn't work the second time and had to be sent and received back East by 4:00 p.m. EST. Gave desk the fax around 10:30 a.m. that morning. Went about my day and came back around 12:30 only to learn that the fax didn't go through. No one made any attempt to contact me and I had to RUSH to the nearest FedEx to send fax. Service in restaurant could use work to improve. Pretty slow, but very nice staff in general and food was OK.

"The only thing we did not like about this hotel"
was the bed. It had a good dip in the middle of the bed. We had a hard time sleeping because of this. So if you get room 118 check the mattress. Other wise we loved the place. They brought in a roll a way bed for our granddaughter. The pool was wonderful, we spent more time there then visiting family. Good places to explore without leaving the grounds. I was raised in Santa Cruz and always wanted to stay here, I'm glad we did. I will probably stay here next year too! I'll just check the mattress out first.

Our room and the hotel facility was clean and attractive. We found the room warm and stuffy unless the window was wide open. With the window open, it was noisy into the wee hours...2:00 am. Walls were very thin also. We could clearly hear our neighbors. We requested a room on the back side, so traffic noise was not bad.

"Old hotel, more like a motel"
Room had no A/C. It had to be over 90 degrees in the room when I first walked in. I kept having issues with the smoke detector in my room. It started beeping around 4am. I called the front desk later that morning and they supposedly had it fixed. The second night it started beeping at around 10:30. Once again I called the front desk and they said there was nobody available to fix it. I tried to sleep but couldn't. I called again at midnight and was told the guy would be there soon. He showed up about a half hour later and replaced the battery. I would have done it myself if it had been a normal ceiling height. The guy used a 20' ladder to reach it.
