Very clean, not a lot of space for parking. But other than that it was great. Will go back!

Clean little motel in Santa Cruz
Although $200 per night seems like a lot, it's pretty normal for this area. Our room was very clean and nice...many of the other hotels in this area can be dumpy. The breakfast was toast, two types of cold cereal, coffee, milk and juice, so don't expect a full breakfast. It was fine for a couple of nights--close to the boardwalk and about 6 miles from Roaring Camp Railroad.

Good rest
I was very pleased with the cleanliness of the motel. It was very convenient to everything I had to get to. It was comfortable, and quiet even though on a busy street. Staff was friendly. I only wish the continental breakfast had lasted longer. It was only between 6:30 and 7:30 which was too early for me.

Convenient and clean.
Great location, comfortable room, breakfast was toast, OJ and coffee, the wifi was worthless, but I'd stay again. Unfortunately, my car was broken into at Natural Bridges.
