"Near downtown Santa Cruz"
Stayed 3 nights. Good value for mid-level motel. Large TV, mini-refrigerator, microwave in room. Comfortable sitting chairs. Most staff friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Average room at best"
Guest service was good, the lady at the front desk was welcoming and pleasant. Overall experience was ok. A few things to point out are that the sheets were dirty (showed stains that obviously did not wash off) and the parking lot being too small. Also, we had a non-smoking room but once we walked in, I could smell strong fumes of marijuana. If you're […] looking for a cheap in & out place to stay, Ramada Limited might be for you. If you're looking for a clean elegant place, don't be fooled by the advertised pictures, you may be disappointed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean room and comfy bed!"
The clerk was VERY nice. Room was clean and the bed was comfy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place at nice price"
Clean and well maintained but nothing special. Enclosed pool area is nice in coastal Monterey. Very nice breakfast area but usual offerings for breakfast. Not close enough to walk to most attractions but good restaurants nearby.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to downtown & the boardwalk"
Read other reviews, found out they were just from picky people because I thought the room was great. Dude up front was real nice, room was clean and comfortable. Parking was a little cramped probably because we stayed on new years eve. 10-15 mins walking distance from downtown, 20-25 mins walking distance from the boardwalk. For casual eats check out […] santa cruz diner around the corner, and for a nice place for two check out chocolate. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We used The Ramada for an overflow of family for the holiday. Clean, nice staff, great location and a nice breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to downtown"
I enjoyed this hotel. The front desk guy was friendly when I arrived. The room was clean and had a very comfortable bed. Had an updated TV, coffee maker, and bath necessities. Also, being from out of the area, the hotel was close to downtown, where I went to check out a local Hawaiian restaurant. Excellent! I would definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"the staff (eric) and the patel's are wonderful!"
i needed a place for a few days and this was convenient and clean and a good price. the rooms were clean and the registration staff was very friendly and informative. i really liked being able to book online so quickly and to be greeted so nicely.Genuine Expedia guest review
These other reviews are really harsh! I loved my stay here. Comfy bed, clean room, great TV, friendly staff! I absolutely loved it! I didn't wanna leave and go home. The check in and check out was very fast. There are little brochures in the main lobby that actually told me about a Star Wars event that was happening. Pretty close to everything. We walked […] everywhere. Had breakfast in the morning, which was awesome! There's a waffle maker so you can actually make your own waffles! I wish I could go back. I would definitely stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"2 star expected"
Sink light didnt turn on, bathroom is super small.. There was a family above me that decided to stomp around consistently for an hour straight starting at 7am. Breakfast there is not recommended unless you like cigarette waffles...the only good thing about the hotel was the nice guy at the desk. Not worth the price...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location, friendly staff but needs updating!"
Just stayed one night. Was expecting the hotel room to be in a better shape being a Ramada franchise. Hotel staff were very helpful & friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to beach and fun."
Good place to stay,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not worth the price..."
Upon entering the room I was excited that it had a refrigerator. However, it did not work. The walls in the room were dirty and the bathroom tub/shower looked like it had not been cleaned in a while. Due it being dirty I was afraid to touch much of anything. Upon checking out I waited for someone to come to the counter and even after ringing the bell […] and waiting 10 minutes, no one ever came and I left. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A disappointment of the Ramada Chain"
Lets start with the positives...The man who checked me in was friendly and the bed seemed clean and comfortable. The furniture was newer styled and seemed to be in good shape. The negatives: the door locks were broken and the door wouldn't stay closed all the way even when "locked"...this is probably the biggest negative of them all....the metal plate […] on the door fame wasn't fastened in at all and just flopped around. The "hinge" type lock / latch on the inside of the door was missing the "ball" part on the door and was useless. The only thing that kept us feeling somewhat safe was the chain link on the door and the chair we wedged against the handle. The door looked like it had been broken into in the past and just not fixed. The neighborhood was sketchy and we heard people shouting up and down the street all night...this is not the hotel's fault but still a negative. The room had satellite tv though the box wasn't even plugged in and we had to move the heavy tv stand to plug it back in. The carpet was tattered and worn and the bathroom area looked like your basic $50 a night hotel. I am not usually this picky but when you pay as much as I did for the Ramada name I expected better. Stay at the Continental Inn as we did the week prior. Much better! Would not stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice Santa Cruz motel"
Many of the motels in the area are dated. This was a refreshing changeGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Stay in Santa Cruz"
This hotel was within close proximity to so many attractions, boardwalk, UCSC Botanical Gardens, Big Basin Redwood State Park, beaches of course, shopping, dining options, etc. Staff was very nice and accommodating. The only negatives are the noise (walls not soundproofed, so hear neighbors & TVs) and pool could be a little cleaner, but the net was […] there to get the bugs out ourselves. It was pleasant to enough to swim. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Layout of building amplifies sound (voices & cars). The first night there was a wedding party that lasted until 3am. Following nights were better but not quiet. Probably OK if you like to sleep with the A/C running all night (to drowned out other sounds...Genuine Expedia guest review
"Santa Cruz diner right down the road"
The location was good, the hotel was reasonably priced and convenient. I would (probably will) go back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Not happy about the fact that the a severe water leak had not been detected by staff prior to our arrival. Carpet in front of bathroom sink was soaked and apparently had been for some time given the musty smell. We eventually were switched out to another room, but had to deal with the smell and wet carpet during our first night at the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old, smelly and bug friendly"
I booked this on a whim for $72, for one night as we were just passing through to go to Monterey and my husband wanted me to see the Santa Cruz boardwalk- I should have passed and made him take me straight to Monterey. I don't think I slept at all the one night we stayed here- first off when we got to our room it was very muggy and smelled so I turned […] on the ac thinking that the air just needed to be circulated and it would get better. So we changed quickly and went to the boardwalk and had dinner on the wharf, which I loved. But my mood quickly changed as I returned to a big silver bug crawling up the side of our bed when we walked in our room. I can handle noise the humidity, etc but bugs I will not do. The mugginess had worsened with the ac on and while we were gone our toilet broke- the bathrooms are filthy and the towels smelled- I waited to shower until we got to our room in Monterey the next day. Bottom line I should have known that you get what you pay for and sprung another hundred to stay at a nicer place. Only upside was the reception staff- extremely friendly and nice!

Seemed like the place is poorly maintained for a ramada. Price was high and safety/security was questionable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Was ok for the price"
I'm giving this hotel an average rating. I've stayed in better but paid more. This place is great I you want the basic bed to stay in. Hot coffee in lobby and a safer than most downtown locations to park your car... Oh and bonus- they do have a pool. It's small but deep and refreshing on hot days.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Breakfast area is to small, will be nice to have any fresh fruit available for breakfast. I have to comment that the coffee tasted very good. Overall very quit, very convenient location. Will consider this hotel next time to stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The pictures are misleading"
We were looking for a deal and that we got but it definitely reflected in the hotel and the cheap breakfast that came with it. The pictures showed redone rooms but once we got there it was clear to see that it was just a false promise. The carpets were so stained that we walked around with shoes at all times. We felt we had to wear sandals in the shower […] cause it wasn't very clean and the top bedspread was a stained mess with what i will leave it to you to wonder and the blanket under that was stained as well who knows when they cleaned them last if ever. The breakfast was very disappointing. Just a few things watered down juice a muffin cut into a bunch of pieces, cold hard boiled eggs. best part was the waffle maker and even that was just ok. Over all it was a disappointment and no we would not stay there or recommend it to anyone we know. And we had our 3 month old baby girl with us boy was that a challenge to keep her clean and safe.

"Limited is right."
Ok motel but rooms are very musty smell and the a/c knobs didn't work the mini refg. was very noisy when on and vibrated the floor. We had an upstairs room.The so called breakfast was limited to waffles and mini rolls which they ran out 1 hour before cut off time. had to finish making the coffee for them which that didn't have time. The TV also did […] not work. Parking is very tight if you have a SUV. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is in a good location for looking after someone at the hospital. The room was comfortable. The check in manager was nice and was open when we arrived late. He also asked how my family member was doing when we checked out early. He apologized for the suggestion I gave him to have the room cleaned up a little more for the next guest. The bathroom […] side of the bathroom door was dirty. Except for that, the room was adequate and comfortable. The AC worked fine. The room was quiet even though it was pool side. The continental breakfast was acceptable and standard for a level 3 hotel. I had forgotten conditioner and there was no conditioner in the room - just a tiny body wash and two tiny body lotions. I did not think to ask the desk if they had any conditioner. The second day when we returned to the room the bed had been made up, but it had huge wrinkles in it like someone had just thrown the spread over the bed and did not check to see it was smoothed out across the bed. The location was okay. There is a Dennys nearby. Our favorite 24 hour restaurant Jeffreys in Soquel was not very far away. Highly recommend Jeffrey's in Soquel. Overall, this hotel worked for the quick trip to watch over a family member with an emergency medical situation in that area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"An average hotel"
It was OK but just that. The staff were very friendly but the hotel was a bit run down, though clean. We didn't like that the pool was surrounded by the parking lot. Probably won't stay there again, but it was not a disaster.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not worth the money"
Over priced hotel ... Blood on bathroom sink ... Not happy with the hotel at allGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok hotel for a last minute reservation"
Our joke for the weekend we stayed was that apparently the "No Smoking" room means there is not currently a smoker in the room when you check in. Cigarette burns on the bath tub and the smell (although very faint) of cigarette smoke in the room indicate it really was a smoking room, at least at one time. The fact that the person(s) in the numberless […] room close to ours had an ashtray on the railing didn't help either. Aside from that, everything was OK. The staff were great and super friendly and the breakfast room was very nice for a hotel that size. We were very happy with that. The room was just a standard hotel room and it served our needs. We only used the room for sleeping and spent the rest of the time on the boardwalk. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Over all experience was very good - Star Rating is LowGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The mattress was too firm (very uncomfortable) and the pillows flat. Made for some restless/sleepless nights. Breakfast consisted of waffles, cold cereal, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, very watery juice and coffee. Not bad, but not great. It would have been nice to see some fruit. The pool was absolutely filthy and had a visible ring on dirt above the water […] line. Very disappointed in this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We stayed one night and the walk to the boardwalk was a good 20-25min walk and the bed sheets were strained and ripped, gross!Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel staff is very slow when a request is made. My room needed a plunger and after waiting for 15 minutes, I went down and got it myself. While in the breakfast area, almost 30 minutes later, I heard the hotel clerk tell the housekeeper to take a plunger to my room. Too slow! The breakfast bar was being monopolized by a customer, and there were the […] ones of us in line waiting for our turn. At the stroke of 9:30 when breakfast is technically over, the housekeeper came in and cleared the area, even while we were standing in line for our turn. (We had arrived in plenty of time to get our food and eat before closing time.) The woman who was fixing a waffle had to ask for the butter and syrup to be brought back out. They could have waited when they saw the situation. However, on the positive side, the beds were comfortable and the room was quiet. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel to stay at"
The hotel was pretty good, and the staff was friendly & helpful. It was a bit pricey, but that is just how it is everywhere in Santa Cruz if you stay on the weekend. The pool was nice, however there was only 1 shade umbrella! The one complaint I have is if you book with Hotels.com, you are required to pay up front before you even stay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Small Quiet Hotel With Comfortable Accomodations"

Hotel is in good location. And close to the boardwalk. Staff available and willing to help. Making own waffles for breakfast was fun for the kids.Genuine Expedia guest review
This was booked by our company for two Employees. They called once they were checked in, said the room was disgusting. They found dirty glasses, half drank Gatorade bottle in the refrigerator, marijuana seeds in the drawer (next to the Bible) and a marijuana cigarette. Unacceptable for the amount of money paid.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent, quite hotel"
Our stay was average. Room was fine, hotel grounds were quiet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was conviently located for us, but not too close to the boardwalk which was good . The pool is small but good for my two boys. The rooms are slightly updated with newer bedding, it was clean except the carpet was a bit musty & dirty. But overall I felt for the money , the location etc. It worked for our I overnight stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Big Name, Small Town Feel"
My son and I stayed in several hotels throughout our road trip and this was my favorite. The personalized customer service helped us feel at home away from home. It was close enough to the Boardwalk to get there easily but far enough away to not deal with the tourist traffic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
