Nice but overpriced.
Overpriced as far as I'm concerned but Santa Cruz is just that way. Room was large and clean. Furnishings dated but functional. A/C worked well and was quiet. Parking available but don't be last one in or you may be out of luck.

It was fine, 1 night roof over your head not terrible not the best. Right near the boardwalk. It all we needed. Parking is tight though if you have a large vehicle.

It was our first time at this hotel..nothing fancy...clean sheets...but the bathroom and air conditioner had a lot of hair on them.Close to boardwalk always a plus. Didn't know that construction on a new hotel was next door and started at 7am.The staff was friendly.
