Very Good 8.2 From 782 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Hotel is very comfortable. The beds were nice and I was able to sleep peacefully. This hotel is close to beach and Santa Cruz boardwalk. The office staff was exceptional. I had come down to move my daughter and was having a hard time parking the extra car on her street. The hotel let me leave our car in their parking lot hours before we even checked in. Great customer service!!

Very nice place to stay. Close to everything. Very comfortable and clean room. Super nice staff. Very friendly and helpful. The only thing i would recomend is changing the shower head. Could use a wider newer massage type with more pressure. Other than that it is worth the price .I would stay here again and again. 👍😉

Very Happy
Good sized room, bathroom clean, hot tub hot. Staff very helpful. I had to leave a day early and they refunded the day even though I had a non-refundable rate. Greatly appreciated.

Clean room
I prepaid so check in was easy and quick. The guys at the front desk were nice, and recommended the restaurant across the street. The room was clean. The hotel has 2 buildings, the other is across the street. So the only downfall was the main one where the office is had the jacuzzi, but the pool is across the street. But other than that we enjoyed our stay and were at the beach anyway. So the pool being across the wasn't an issue for us.
