Fireside Inn Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz
Only good for its location
Room is extremely small. when showing, had to wait more than 10min to have hot water. In boom heater not working at all, cold at night. Bedroom night light can't be turned off, can't sleep with a night light on! Curtains too tHin as well, think curtains only for decorations, not able to pull to cover the full width of window! It's only good for its location.

We just needed the hotel for a night and so were not expecting too much. The bed is surprisingly comfortable and at night the area is pretty quiet. The man at the desk was friendly and checking in and out wasn't a problem. The building and rooms definitely need a face lift. The only complaint we had was the motion sensor light in the bathroom that kept turning on and off all night whenever we made a movement in the bed, literally lifting an elbow would cause the light to come on. Anywho, wasn't terrible for a night, great location.
