Very Good 8.4 From 870 reviews

Very Good 8.0
The staff was helpful and location is great for being close to the beach and boardwalk. There’s some construction noise because of remodeling but overall a good place to stay in. We will definitely come back here.

Nice place and location but pool was not heated.
Nice place to stay, great location. I would have rated it higher if the pool was heated as we were told it would be but it was not.
Mauro, us2 night family trip
Very Good 8.0
Room an odd mix, but good overall
My room was an odd blend of new and old, convenient and not so convenient. On the plus side, the location was fairly quiet, the bed was great with good pillows and there was a nice bathroom vanity area and shower. I appreciated the glasses, mugs, tea and the good-size mini fridge. On the not so great side, the microwave was a very old model (but functional), I had a hard time finding accessible electrical outlets, and because of how the desk and bed were arranged, there wasn't much room to pull out the chair, since it ran into the bed. Still, definitely one of the better budget-friendly places I've stayed (with the deal) in Santa Cruz. I would return.

This is my go-to spot in Santa Cruz
This place is great. The location is perfect, the pool is surprisingly nice and the rooms are clean.

Good 6.0
Does the trick.
Have been staying at this hotel on and off for about 4 yrs while my son attends UCSC. Great location for beach and easy/quick trip to campus. While the security seems improved since my last stay, the amenities and overall 'feel' seems to have declined. No more breakfast, have to pay for decent wifi connection, etc. I will definitely stay again but with a little less enthusiasm for the property.
