"Nice hotelclose to beach and shops"
Enjoyable staff and pleasent room. Close to restaurants, the Pier and shops.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Waaaaay over priced"
I paid way too much for this room. It was close to the wharf and that was pretty much all it had going for it. The manager was very nice and helpful. The room was clean and the bed was comfy. Our TV's sound was distorted and HBO come in and out. The microwave was a relic from the 70's. We could hear everything that was going on around us, doors slamming, […] cars breaking and people talking throughout the night. Also the Continental breakfast was nothing to brag about. Waffles, two cereals, toast, yogurt, juice and coffee. Overall I was pretty bummed that I paid so much. I guess I should have known it is a Super 8 after all. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Motel near Boardwalk"
Staff was very prompt in exchanging a bath towel and making change for $20.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Top notch staff!!"
While the hotel and its staff were WONDERFUL I was VERY DISAPPOINTED with EXPEDIA BOOKING!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Customer Service Oriented"
I chose to book here based on other's reviews and it didn't disappoint. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The owners are super friendly, accommodating and customer oriented. My kids, Mom and I really enjoyed the deck with tables and chairs, we ate breakfast and enjoyed the view. The Boardwalk was a short walk away. I wish the outdoor pool […] was heated but probably not common in that area. All in all a great trip. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"One Night Stand"
We stayed in Santa Cruz saturday night so we didn't have to ride back to Oakland after a show at The Catalyst. The place is a little out dated, but comfortable and the lady at the front desk (owner maybe) was really sweet. The rooms are a little over priced for what they are, but its Santa Cruz. No biggie. I will stay here again next time we come to […] see a show. Conveniently located as well. Overall... it was fine. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location and Great Price."
The owners are awesome and offered to upgrade our room. I would stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very friendly staff, generous rooms"
The staff (owner & wife?) were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely choose this hotel again for our next trip.Genuine Expedia guest review
We arrived after having been in a traffic accident and the couple in the reception were SO nice and helpful - and we had a fine room, good beds, and in a very short distance to The boardwalk and the Beach - we can warmly recommend Super 8:)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stop into Santa Cruz"
Stayed a night in Santa Cruz and stay here for the evening. Room was clean and great for the price. Minute walk to the beach and the boardwalk (which was overrated). Our only complaint was the tv speakers in our room was blown and the pillows were not great. But I would still stay againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location to Boardwalk. Staff was very friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Checked in was supposed to be at 2, but I was able to check in at 12. Better than average facility! Very nice staff, even pointed out direction to wharf where there are many seafood restaurants. Walking distance to beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great stay with kids"
We aren't too picky about fancy hotels since we like to take a lot of trips but when I travel with my 2 and 4 year old my biggest concerns and safety and cleanliness, this hotel satisfied both those concerns and was so close to the boardwalk we walked back and forth several times in a day. The room was nice, the beds were great, customer service was […] awesome, all in all it was a great stay and a great price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

It was great! staff was full of info and very friendly. Hotel is walking distance to beach, so you don't have to pay for parking. Great Free bkfast !! you can make your own waffles. we will be booking our next stay soon.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient and a great value!"
I like this hotel because it meets all of my needs, is convenient and a great value for what you get. My standard is clean duvet covers in a hotel room. and they provide this. The owners are lovely and I will continue to stay there when I go to Santa Cruz for business.Genuine Expedia guest review
The staff went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and welcome. The rooms were very well kept and clean. I was worried about staying at a 2 star motel but thi place was great! Absolutely loved their pillows! My boyfriend and I even bought some from them before we left! We didn't eat breakfast at the motel but the breakfast bar looked well […] stocked and they even had waffles. We would definitely go back! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Didn't realize how close the motel was to the Boardwalk...Now I know......Genuine Expedia guest review
I was pleasantly surprised with Super 8 .It was close to the location and event I was attending . Only thing was the pool was not heated nor did it have a hot tub other wise I would say this is a great place to stay when in the Santa Cruz ca. area ,close to the Board walk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I honestly really wanted to steal a pillow..."
The beds and pillows were just so comfortable! And the lovely lady at the front desk was so helpful and nice! This place is super close to both downtown and the Boardwalk. Definitely staying here again next time I need a few nights in Santa Cruz.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean comfortable room close to boardwalk."
Excellent staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quick run to Santa Cruz CA"
We were greeted very pleasantly, upon arrival and we were allowed to,check in two hours early. This hotel is about a 4 minute walk to the Beach Boardwalk & a nice 20-30 minute stroll to the Pier. We enjoyed our stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
My family has been visiting this hotel for 30+ years, starting with my parents when they started dating. Now my brother takes his family there, and I go there too for stays! We all love it, it has a great location. Easy to get to the boardwalk, beach, pier, downtown, and freeway. The parking lot is a little tight but it's great to be able to leave your […] car and walk to so many awesome places! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel with excellent staff."
It was a pretty typical Super 8. When you book a Super 8, you know what you're getting. It's not a Hilton or a Sheraton, but it gets the job done. The exact location was a little sketchy in my opinion, but overall, it was close to both downtown and the Boardwalk, so in that sense, it was good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Boardwalk"
When we pulled up my kids did a double-take & said it doesn't look very safe but rooms were clean and overall average stay hotel for the price. Beds soft and hotel right b offramp to freeway so kind of noisy. Breakfast was skimpy but kids got a honeybun. Owners seemed nice. We might stay there again if weGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The woman who runs the place is very friendly and helpful. The bed was very comfortable. We slept great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the beach."
Pretty impressed with this stay. Really friendly/polite staff willing to answer my questions. Clean room,pretty spacious. Only a short walk to the boardwalk/beach. I would stay again with this great rate. Thank you.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Mattress and bedding were a pleasant surprise one of the most comfortable beds and pillows I experienced in a while, much more than I expected.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed in a large hot tub room, which I always worry about when booking due to past experiences where places did not up-keep/maintain. This room was GREAT. Extremely clean, cute, tub worked, cozy bed, perfect location, extremely friendly and helpful staff. Thanks, we will likely be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Santa Cruz Week End in the Fall"
My Husband and I stayed at the Super 8 last week end and I would have to say the motel was small but the beds were very comfortable. I'm so glad we only paid $96 for this room, It is not worth the $200 price tag I have seen on other reviews. It is located about 2 blocks from the Boardwalk but right on a busy street. I definitely did not feel as if I […] was staying near the beach. After driving around I found many other motels that would have given us more of a Ocean and Boardwalk feel to the week end. If you just want a place to crash it is fine. Also, the other Super 8 that is cheaper is right across the street, by the write ups I thought it was further away. All in all this is a motel with a hotel price. I will say the staff was friendly and the room was clean, although there were exposed pipes in the bathroom giving the room that overall cheap feel. The breakfast was fine, what you would expect from a continental breakfast. Next time I will find a motel near the wharf area, definitely more of the Beach and Boardwalk feel with a little better atmosphere, probably worth the few extra bucks.

"more than just convenient."
after stressing over where to book a room and careful studying several reviews of just about every hotel in Santa Cruz we felt comfortable with our choice took stay at this super eight. We were not disappointed. Being an exterminator I am trained till find any kind of bug infestations and this room was SUPER CLEAN. the out door terrace for breakfast […] was great. not sure about child weather though. the bed was very comfortable, the pillows not so much. the owners were awesome, so friendly and helpful with all our questions. we walked to the beach and boardwalk from out room so location was fantastic. parking was free but I have a BIG truck so it was a little tight but as good as other hotel parking lots. he's we checked out everything lol. we are definitely going back next year and fully plan on staying here again. can't beat the price and location and service we received.

This hotel suited my needs perfectly. Walking distance to the boardwalk and the Kaiser pavilion. The owners are super nice. Room was clean and quiet. My only complaint is the smell in the room. It must be the cleaner. If they switched to some green cleaning products this hotel would get 6 stars.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice decor, good breakfast, difficult parking"
Pleasant friendly service. Small awkward parking lot on 1 way street. Breakfast had many choices!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I use the spa inside the room which was very relaxing, it was a very short walk to the Broadwalk which was great and other night time entertainment. it was a great weekend getaway.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
No frills, just a good, cheap place to stay around the Boardwalk. One complaint - the pool looked pretty dirty, not sure how often they clean it but there was definitely debris in it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean hotel 2 blocks from boardwalk"
very easy place to stay. Great to walk to the beach or boardwalk. Front desk clerk was very nice. In room microwave and frig a plus. Basic complimentary continental breakfast was good to have. Fresh waffles to make yourself a nice surprise. Kind of pricey, but it's a tourist area, so not much to do about it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Worn out hotel, but close to the boardwalk"
Rooms were worn down, TV was useless but comfortable and clean enough for a night or twoGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ok for the price"
The air conditionning made noise but it was ok because we did not heard the trucks coming up the street. Our room was in the intersection of 2 streets.Genuine Expedia guest review
Not exactly cheap at $100. Room was clean, but smelled nauseating with cheap cleaner. Location felt ghetto.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean Room / Nice Staff"
The Hotel was very clean and the staff was friendly. Room rate was a little pricey but in Santa Cruz..... all the room rates are pricey. Cost wise, it was on the lower side in comparison to other hotels. Location was perfect. Only a 5-10 walk from the Hotel to Downtown shops and the Boardwalk/Pier. Would definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Access to the private parking was an immediate problem because of the 7 foot entrance (my van was 7'6") and there was no street parking available. The room was situated next to a patio with tables on the 2nd floor which compromised the rooms privacy any time you opened the door. The complimentary breakfast was OK but limited because of the space could […] handle 5-6 people at a time. Oh, yes the room was comfortable and the necessary AC. This is a great motel if you are planning to visit the downtown area of Santa Cruz. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel room was very nice. The parking lot is small and tight. We have a truck and parking was challenging. It is close to the boardwalk and a very busy area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Basic motel, friendly owner"
I was able to check in an hour early. The owner was very friendly. Once I was in my room, she called and asked if the room was to my liking. I thought that was nice. Bed sheets, bathroom, and furniture were clean. The carpet, not so much. I liked the bathroom amenities. There just wasn't any conditioner. We checked out the pool. It was really cold. […] There was sand at the bottom, so that kind of turned me off to swimming in it. Location was great. Only 2 blocks from boardwalk. I felt safe when I walked with my daughter at night from the boardwalk to the motel. Breakfast consisted of 2 different cereals, yogurt, make-your-own waffle, pastries. It was in the small lobby that you checked in at. You can have it on the patio above the lobby if the furniture isn't so wet from the fog. We had it in our room.

"close to everything that we love in Santa Cruz!"
For the most part it was very good. The only problem was the size of the room it could have been a little bit bigger. Other than that we enjoyed our stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Place to Stay"
The hotel was convenient to the boardwalk. It was very clean and the rooms were a good size. We had our two grandsons with us and there was plenty of room. The breakfast was good but you had to take the food to your room to eat, but with two young boys it worked out well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Management was terriffic! They were friendly and really went out of their way to take care of their patrons. Much appreciated!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nicest owners ever! The place was spotless and they really keep an eye out. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great stay in Santa Cruz"
Very close to The Boardwalk so the kids could walk back and forth. Great facility with a nice upper deck area to relax and play card/dice games or just hang out and enjoy the day/evening. Overall, great experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great value for money. I was made to feel really welcome and that nothing was too much trouble.Genuine Expedia guest review
