We stayed here midweek where it was excellent value ($89). Our room was newly renovated and was beautiful. The shower was huge and had two heads which was the highlight!! The breakfast was very extensive with everything from oatmeal and granola to waffles and pastries!! It's only 5 mins walk to the wharf or downtown. But we were there for...

We have had wildly divergent experiences staying in the Santa Cruz area and have generally found that for a mid-range hotel, the farther you are from the Boardwalk, the better the experience. However, since we were only going to spend one night on a quick jaunt to Santa Cruz to go to the Boardwalk, I decided to try a hotel...

I did not have the experience that the other two prior reviewers did. We stayed in room 105 and it was very clean. Actually the hotel has done renovations since our last stay (we've gone to this hotel now 4 times in 6 years) - new paint, new bedding etc and it does make a difference. Yes, it is loud...

Just remember if you get a room on the second floor the rooms above have spas in them and there is no insulation We stayed for 2 nights and both nights I had to ring reception because the upstairs people were having a spa after the cut off time of 10.00pm which I might add is way too late for...

After reading all these great reviews we decided to give it a shot this past weekend when we had an opportunity to spend a Friday night down there. Well, you know you're in for trouble when you find earplugs on the bedside table. I only wish I had found them the night we checked in and not the next morning...

The location is great! Walking distance to everything, downtown shops and restaurants as well as the boardwalk. The walls seemed a little thin but it's worth the location. Staff was friendly , and we love the city of Santa Cruz.

We stayed here in July 2012 and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is very close to the beach and the boardwalk and is a clean, nice place to sleep. The breakfast was decent too. We were somewhat disappointed with Santa Cruz, as after doing the boardwalk, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot to do. Everything shuts down after...

Hotel was very clean, though parking spots were tight and at a premium. Buffet breakfast was OK. walking distance to Santa Cruz Pier was much appreciated. Hotel staff were very eager to please apologizing since someone was in line in front of us - totally unnecessary, but appreciated none the less. Website pictures were somewhat deceiving - this is a...
