no intangible hotel
nice view and that's it. this is a no intangible hotel. no water for coffee in the room and a broken vending machine if you wanted water but couldn't get it. no late checkout. no free coffee in the morning. nice people working there who say sorry a lot. not at all worth the money. go to a two star hotel with a view instead at a much cheaper price. this is a rip-off.

Great view
Hotel was right on the beach, very nice view and you can listen to the ocean waves all night. Easy access to the beach, five minute walk to pier, 2 minute walk to wharf and free bike rentals for adults (I did not see little kids bikes). It's an older hotel but still in really good shape, wear and tear in some areas and a bit dusty around the curtains. Our room was near the restaurant and it was quiet load at night because they had a function.

The room was very relaxing with sounds from the surf, loved the weather, the pool and cocktails. Bed was very squeeky.

Weekend getaway to Santa Cruz
We needed a last-minute getaway from San Francisco and this was the winning spot. The price was astronomical, of course, since it was Labor Day weekend. The beach was crowded, and so was the pool, but the view made up for most of the inconvenience. If you're a childless couple, it's not the best hotel for a chic experience. If you're a family, it seems like a great spot for everyone. Mostly loved the bikes you can borrow for the day, though they should really provide more, as they go fast.

Outstanding5.0 / 5
Had a wonderful time. The pool is as nice as any resort I have ever been to with great sights of the Bay right off the balcony. The room was very comfy and had a great view as well. Right next to the wharf and the Boardwalk, there is plenty to do.
