    Large room

    The room was perfect for my big family. There was a kitchen, although there was no utensils, now that I know I will bring some. I would stay there again

    Good family hotel near the boardwalk

    This hotel is in a great location relative to the boardwalk. We walked everywhere and never had to move the car. Parking is very limited and there are clearly not enough spots for all the occupants of the hotel. The room was nice, but there were a few hiccups. The room could definitely use some updating. The man who checked us in let us know they just fixed a plumbing issue with the bathroom, so the wall wasn’t painted ( not a big deal). The second room with the double bed was very small and the window had no screen and no curtains (only broken blinds). The main window in the hall didn’t have normal blackout curtains, so there was a little light shining through, and they barely fit. You could hear everything outside. The people upstairs from our room seem to be up and about around 2am every morning. Overall a good place to stay for family. Next time, I will look at the kitchen suite for my family. Felt safe, despite reviews saying it seemed sketchy due to the area.

    Depends on what you need

    Decent place for the price and location, especially for a family of 5. The concerning part was that the walls and floors were so thin that we could hear the TV in the room beside us late at night and kids running around in the room above us early in the morning. My kids liked their beds, but mine felt like springs were broken. Overall, it worked for what we needed (1 night near the Boardwalk for 5 people), but definitely not a 5-star place.

    Good deal

    Easy check in. Front desk very friendly. Parking was always available. The room was a bit old and damp but we figured because we were right across from the ocean. Beds were clean but pilllows were flat make sure to bring your own. Good cable, lotsa movies. Neighbors seemed to wake up really early and start bustling around at 5am. For the weekday $99 deal, we cant complain. I would rent again just for the $99 deal.

    Travelers beware.

    Location next to Boardwalk is excellent however very sketchy area. Parking is very tight is you have a full size truck and very limited. Room does not look anything like the pictures. Wow your in for a very unpleasant surprise. Most of the area looks very rundown so the motel not hotel fits right in. This part of Santa Cruz seems like drugs and gangs. Kids smoking weed and disrespectful towards law enforcement. Never going to this part of town again.

    Close to the boardwalk

    I did not appreciate the surprise deposit fee. We got it back because we are good people but it took $100 dollars out of our budget for our trip while we were there. Other than that everything was Great!
