Fabulous 8.6 From 426 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Great hotel and worth the few extra bucks. Its so hard to find a nice clean hotel close to the water so this was perfect. A short 15 minute walk gets you everywhere.

Great for kids as well as parents
We had a great time! The vibe was cool yet family friendly. A place both parents and kids love. The food in the restaurant was amazing too! We will definitely be back!

Good 6.0
It was an Okay Stay... We showed up at 4:05p to check in which check in is at 4p was told our Room wasn't ready because it was so so busy??? She said she would text when ready.. got text at 4:45p We had a room next to the elevator which you could hear anytime in use... wasn't completely annoying but still not quiet either. The alarm clock went off at 5:55 a.m. which I didn't set so I had to figure out how to turn off and try and get back to sleep which didn't really happen. The Coffee maker was broken and leaked everywhere. I asked for a couple extra towels since my daughter used hers when she went to the pool... they never came and we made due.

Odd but lovely SC hotel
While odd looking on the outside, and oddly shaped, it is a really nice hotel! I think it's one of the best options I've tried in Santa Cruz. The rooms are nice and comfortable. The price is pretty good for a touristy area (Santa Cruz has some really nasty hotels for a similar price). It is very new and clean. The parking felt safe. The staff is very friendly. We told them we had just gotten married and they gave us some complimentary wine. Very nice!
