"Nice place to stay for a quick overnight trip"
I stayed at this hotel the night before a major running event in Santa Cruz. Overall, the room was nice and the hotel itself was clean and quiet. I was disappointed that there were no coffeemakers in the room (they did have a fridge and microwave, though) and that there wasn't any coffee available before their "continental breakfast" which started after […] my race began. I use coffeemakers not only for coffee, but to get hot water for oatmeal. I wasn't able to eat my oatmeal before the race, which thankfully didn't end up being a big deal because I had brought other options. However, for $150/night, a coffeemaker might be a nice perk in the room if you already have the microwave and refrigerator. I was very appreciative of them giving me a late check-out, which I needed. I'd stay here again, only I'll bring my own coffee. ;) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location, Location, Location"
No frills, basic room (small), clean, excellent location...walking distance to wharf/boardwalk. We only stayed 2 nights so it was perfect for the 2 of us for a quick weekend trip. If you need lots of amenities etc. Then you may want to choose another hotel - this is VERY basic (bring you're own hairdryer) - the room did have a microwave and small f […] ridge.

"Great Location. Not so great hotel"
We loved the location which is why we chose this hotel. Beds not very comfortable. Rooms stuffy and musky. It had the basic necessities but not hair dryer. Breakfast was dry cereal and danishes. Unfortunately we chose a night along with 20 kids going to prom. They were loud. They were up til two or three in the morning. We could hear them talking drinking […] and arguing. It was one of the worst nights of sleep. We were looking for a romantic night away and this was far from it. Being on second floor, you could hear every time someone walked by our room. Couldn't keep window open due to the noise. Will not stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"First time in Santa Cruz"
Great location. I asked for a rollaway bed and there was one waiting for us in the room. For the price this place was great!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small room and wheelchair friendly it wasn't"
This room was small, hard to get around in a wheel chair as specified, and with no wheelchair necessary bathroom amenities. I go the staff guy to lend me a plastic case that had drills and bits in it in order to have something fit into the bathtub to make it workable for a broken leg. It was probably the smallest motel room I have ever stayed in. There […] was no closet, fridge, microwave, or suitcase rack. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Check in after 4 PM, the owner welcomes you to choose from any available rooms. The room was adequate, most of our time was spent enjoying the areas immediately surrounding the motel. Even though most rooms don't have the "beach view" as advertised, for the price, a very pleasant ambiance was achieved. A must go for couples looking for an economical […] escape to Santa Cruz.

"friendly management, helped me with a problem"
I would returnGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Rooms need a bit of updating but they are very clean and the location is fantastic. We were just around the corner from the pier. Although we had to check out Saturday morning, we were told that we could leave our car parked in the hotel parking for the rest of the day. Very convenient for a busy weekend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fine simple motel in great location"
Stayed one night on a quick surf trip. It's a basic motel, smallish rooms, but comfortable and cheap (at least it was on this stay). No fuss no muss. Will try it again when the occasion arises.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the beach"
Ok this hotel is not fancy or luxurious accomodation and is located next door to a tattoo parlor. That said, the room was freshly painted, had brand new carpet, and it was clean. In addition, it was very close to the beach and very well priced. So, I would recommend it if you're on a budget and don't plan to spend a lot of time im your room. Personally, […] I will probably try to find something a bit more comfortable and hopefully with a view of the bay next time I visit Santa Cruz. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the wharf"
nice location, walk to the wharf !Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bargain by the Beach"
Old and a little dated, but comfortable. Friendly staff. Really a bargain when you consider how close to the beach it is. Great location. Parking lot is definitely a challenge, but it is free parking.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice inexpensive stay"
All good - for the price, I'd rate it higher, but it's as expected, low-cost ok room right near the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The wharf was right there."
Clean room,bed was fine. Wharf,Boardwalk within walking distance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
was good, but we both woke up with aching backs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Really close to the beach and the boardwalk and the wharf. I would definitely stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice place to stay for the price."
The room was very clean, bed was comfortable, and there wasn't any outside noise.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is older but was very clean. Property also kept up nicely. About a block from the boardwalk entrance. We couldn't see the ocean from our room but some of the upstairs rooms do have a view. Excellent taco stand(tasted very homemade) and little pizza place right there by the hotel. Great stay, great value. Will go backGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location, but needs a little work"
The hotel is in a pretty good spot and the staff is nice. However, there were a few things that made my stay mediocre. The wifi does not reach the second floor rooms. The sink drained ver slowly, so it was full of water while washing up. The breakfast is really just some cereal and donuts in plastic packages.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent hotel right next to the beach"
Clean cheap good parking . Happy as a clamGenuine Expedia guest review
"nice hotel by boardwalk and wharf"
Just a nice place to shower and sleep after being out on the town and beach all day. Great price for location. Parking is on a slant but there were only a few cars the night we stayed there so it wasn't too difficult to park or get out. Pretty sure the people in the next room were smoking even though it's a non-smoking room, but that's not the staff's […] fault. The room we were in had a noisy fan in the bathroom. room 103?

"near everything, convenient"
nice location, close to the wharf, surfing, kayaking, etc. The Hotel was ok for just overnight staying for the price. Staff was also ok.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
nice place, i will stay again, price was good,i dont know what else to sayGenuine Expedia guest review
The room was clean, older construction, walls were thin. The bed was comfortable. Liked that it was so close to the warf and boardwalk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a standard hotel room clean bed, running water etc. The microwave and mini fridge were incredibly useful! the bathroom counter had a small stain but it was all clean. There were signs of structural renovations in the bathroom, it's definitely an economy hotel. The service was outstanding!! The caretaker was very hospitable and thoughtful. I should […] note that I stayed in the off season and was probably one of the three other tenants that night. The location was perfect! 2 blocks from the Boardwalk, the pier and less that 100ft from an amazing little taqueria. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"HOTEL NEAR PIER"
GOOD LOCATION dumpy motel old ymca type towels, holes in sheets, tiny rooms with stained carpet and furnitureGenuine Expedia guest review
Was a decent hotel, staff was nice, rooms were a bit small but clean. Walking distance to the beach. Would definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Helpful manager, near the boardwalk & beach"
The place was fine, exactly what one expects in this price range and location. It was quiet, tidy, simple, clean. The manager was very helpful about local information. The place is located a half block from the beach and the boardwalk. Great location. The "breakfast" is pretty meager, but there is a cafe at the corner with an ocean view that offers […] an inexpensive breakfast special (eggs, bacon, potatoes, toast ...) Good little economy place if you're all about the beach and the rides. Very easy going about parking both before check-in and after check-out. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is right across the street from the wharf and just a hop skip and jump from Boardwalk. The parking is off the street, so it is a safe place to park your car. The room is okay, clean. Has micro wave and refridge that are both clean and working. I was taking a mini vacay with my grandson. The continential breakfast is a little weak. Cereal, […] juice, coffee and Danish, which is pretty good also, except the coffee was like water. Next time I would walk around to corner to Peets and get coffee. It was good for me and my grandson. We had a good time, no complaints. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Inn needs some TLC"
I've stayed here a few times now and each year the condition of the rooms seems to get worse. Carpet is so dirty now I refused to let my child walk barefoot, shower was filthy and stopped up, comforter was tattered. Prices keep going up but it doesn't appear any funds are being allocated to the basic upkeep of the property. I've been a repeat customer […] for years but I've never seen the Inn in this bad of a shape. It was repulsive. Don't think I'll be coming back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Roller coaster a must do!!!!"
The Manager was wonderful!!! He stayed up it we got there. Meter showers had us running late.... Plus we were hungry so we asked where to eat at 1:00 am he directed us very nicely. Bed and room a typical beach area motel. We heard seals and smelled the ocean. Its a great price for peak season for a stop over along the hwy. 1Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quiet and Great Location"
The room was surprisingly quiet, despite the hotel being very full. And you can't beat the location...one block walk to the beach and boardwalk.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to all locations."
It is an older small hotel but the rooms are clean and the staff was friendly. Great location for a week long stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worst hotel I've stayed at."
Dirty. Never in my life thought I would pay $180 a night for a hotel where I couldn't even sit on the toilet cause it looked so dirty. So not worth the price. The air conditioner worked when it wanted to resulting in me not getting much sleep.Genuine Expedia guest review
not the best area to stay with a family to begin with. The room was damp smelling and signs of mold in the bathroom. Plus the bed still had hair on the sheets, uuckGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Boardwalk and Wharf"
Great location for walking along West Cliff drive & only 15 walk from downtown. Good ocean & Wharf view from room - get 14 or 15 if you can.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Careful with Room Rate"
They charged extra $20 during checking even after me paying full amount during online booking, they said its due to tax change but it sounded fishy. Room was ok and the beach was no where in the view and breakfast was nothing worth mentioning. but its a short walk to the beach, and good spot to stay in the Santa Cruz.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not worth the price"
Small rooms are dated. Furniture in room is dirty. There is no "beach view." The only thing this hotel has is good location. 5-10 minute walk to beach & boardwalkGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location, not much else"
Bad carpet, toilet rocked when you sat on it, 70's linens. The only thing about the hotel that was acceptable was the close location to the wharf/boardwalk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Next to Beach"
It was ok I liked it was close to things an had free wifiGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic for the price!"
Cheap, close to the pier & boardwalk.... not a fancy place by any means - but serves the purpose. Breakfast was a joke... but we didn't pick it for the breakfast. It did come with a fridge which was awesome. No shampoo/conditioner... again, I brought my own - I didn't expect much. Staff was incredibly accommodating.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to beach"
It is very close to beach. You can walk to beach in 5 to 10 minutes. The staff there is nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"First and Only Time Here"
While the workers here are nice, and the location can't be beat, this place is just not worth it. I really wish I had spent and extra $50 for a nice hotel. Dirty dirty carpets, stained floors and chairs, the lighting above the bed was loose and hanging over some, there were two options for lighting in the room and so it was relatively dark, and the […] room smelled soooooo funky. The bed didn't even have a fitted sheet, and the comforter was stained with holes in it. The only pros in the room were the T.V. and the shower since it was spacious. They have a continental breakfast- this is bad tasting coffee, tampico instead of OJ, cereal, and pre-packaged store-bought pastries. I'm not a picky, finicky, or high-maintenance person, but this hotel made me feel very uncomfortable when staying in it- I was scared to touch anything really.

"Hop skiip jump from the bardwalk"
The rate was surprising low for July and we got a very nice room. The room was very clean including the shower. Now for the downfall, bed was hard as a rock, pillows flat as a pancake. Soap the size of a chicklet and NO shampoo nor a blowdryer (bring your own). The towels are small pieces of cheese cloth but clean for you can smell the bleach. The hotel […] wasn't easy to find but once we did it had secure parking and we couldn't check into our room for it was only 1 pm and check in was at 4 but they let us park our car and walk to the boardwalk until our room was ready. The pier and boardwalk were only a block away so we never had to drive anywhere and pay for parking, big plus. I would highly recommend this hotel for I have been to several others in the area and this was cleaner, closer and priced much better at $97 for a Thursday night ( that included tax).

Typical beach motel but room was clean although 90's decor. Mattress really firm (hard), thin blanket. Most basic "continental breakfast" I've ever experienced. Resident manager was great but it was her last week with no replacement hired yet so hopefully they'll find someone as good. Located close to boardwalk and wharf. No elevator so us 2 girls had […] to schlep our bags up the stairs. Free wifi in room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Two blocks from the pier"
Room was tiny and smelled like cats, but somehow we managed to sleep well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok for the price"
Hotel staff very friendly and pleasant. Small motel with doors opening to parking lot. Parking right outside room was convienent. Room smelled a bit musty like it had been closed up for awhile. Bed was ok (not a Hilton heavenly bed by any means but not terriblly hard either). Carpet old. Linoleum in bathroom old and stained. Fixtures were old. Shower […] ok. Close to beach. Overall ok for what we wanted-an inexpensive overnight getaway. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
