Family Vacation
Second time in Santa Cruz and was very pleased with my stay. Came with family and 2 little ones so cleanliness was a big thing but the rooms were super clean and the service was great. Staff was very nice and friendly. Would definitely recommend.

Hard Pass for Further visits to SC
when we first arrived, the office building seemed clean and the rooms looked approachable. across the street was a separate building where our room stay would be. our view of a dumpster from the restaurant across the street was the least of my worries until i realized our occupants in the room above us made for a long night. for hours we could hear what sounded like running and pounding. anytime they washed their hands, flushed the toilet or opened their closet it sounded like small rumbles well into 2am. once the sun rose.. it began all over again. the room was ok. floors are hard wood but felt like they don’t get the proper TLC they deserve. for $250/night, we won’t be back

Great location, updated rooms, loud bed frame.
Quick and efficient check-in process. Room was updated and clean. I reserved a king room and was given two queens instead. Not a huge deal, but not ideal. The only real complaint was that the bed frames were REALLY squeaky so any minor movement would cause a 'ssccreeaaaccckk' sound that woke me up. Really good location as both beach and downtown were walkable. Would stay again.
