We stayed at the motel for 2 nights on the start of our California road trip. Although it's called the beach view inn, the only rooms with beach view are on the upper level further back from the main desk. That being said though, the motel was in an ideal location for the beach, wharf and seafront. Although I'm not... More

We stayed overnight on our trip between San Francisco and Los Angeles, the room was very clean and had everything we needed. Staff was friendly and helpful with restaurant recommendations. We paid an extra $10 to have a beach view on the second floor.

Patrick at the front desk was awesome. They all were. I've stayed at a lot of hotels here and I found this one to be the best. Only spot I'll stay now. Best location, just about a block to downtown or the beach/boardwalk. Stayed for the price and gonna return because of the location and employees. Also very clean and... More

Nice little motel with all the amenities you need when you are visiting Santa Cruz. Free wifi, mini fridge and microwave, clean room, comfy bed. Friendly owners. We didn't have the free breakfast the next morning but it was nice they offered it. We also appreciated that they said we could stay parked in the lot even after we checked... More

This motel is just steps from the Santa Cruz Wharf. It's a nice older motel. Our room is nice and well thought out with a big tv, fridge, microwave, and enough outlets to charge our phones and laptops at the same time. This is probably the best deal in Santa Cruz. The management is very nice and helpful. The room... More

We didn't arrive til 11. Although the reception is 24 hours I think it's best to phone ahead if you think you're going to be late. There were some people still to arrive after us but the guy who checked us in said he was going to be locking the door shortly. The room was pretty spacious and the bed... More

This inexpensive, clean motel is close to the wharf and Boardwalk plus numerous restaurants. The management were friendly and helpful in recommending places to eat and trying to make a booking for a place to stay near Yosemite Park. They provided a simple continental breakfast.

This is a great spot to spend a night or two to enjoy the front at Santa Cruz. Easy access to the beach, broadwalk and pier. A really comfy and clean room though not the biggest. Small but OK breakfast pastries and tea/coffee. One really sloppy car park.

We stayed here last minute for one night, as it was the cheapest hotel we could find right by the water. -You can't beat the location for the price. It's one block from the beach / pier, and although it doesn't actually have a view of the beach from any of the rooms, just save yourself a couple hundred dollars... More

We stayed for one night while traveling. Wasn't expecting much but rooms are clean and well equipped. Breakfast was basic but did the job. We upgraded to a 'sea view room' for 11 dollars, it was better than being on the ground floor
