Close to boardwalk
Lack of attention to details like wiping down the counter during cleaning and we had to keep asking for more towels. 2 for 4 people doesn't work. Maybe they were short staffed. Minor problems with cable and wi-fi. The kids enjoyed the pool and it is walking distance to the boardwalk. It's a lot of money for what you get but then Santa Cruz is not exactly a budget location.

Not clean hotel
The housekeeper left her cleaning items in the room and we found old food in the fridge and drawers.

Housekeeping asleep at the wheel???
The room was nice. Updated. Nice to have a refrigerator and microwave. However, when we came back to the room for our second night, the room had not been serviced by housekeeping. Very disappointed in this.

Affordable and close to the beach
A/C didn't work very well, and manager wouldn't listen to me about it. Fortunately, it didn't get too hot while I was there, or I would have been miserable in the room. Breakfast wasn't great, but wasn't awful either. This is an affordable hotel within walking distance of the boardwalk and wharf. If nothing else was available at this price, I would stay there again.
