Comfortable and friendly and close!
Stayed with a bunch of friends for a few days, the rooms were clean and comfortable. It was a nice surprise that the beds were in separate bedrooms so I could put my son to sleep and he wasn’t bothered! Parking in the annex building is a little tight and spots are very limited. The proximity of our hotel to everything we wanted to do was fabulous. Check in was very easy and the man was very friendly and helpful. We had a great stay! I think out of all the cheaper hotels in the area, this is the nicest and best choice!

UC Santa Cruz tour
My family was visiting UC Santa Cruz. We needed a hotel conveniently located near the campus and downtown area. The lobby staff was friendly and welcoming. The room looked updated and was a nice size for three adults. The parking was a bit tight but we were able to get a spot during our stay. The hotel was basic because we were tyring to keep our cost low. Unfortunately, college towns can get away with increased prices.
