Great location. Odd "tenants? ". Room was tiny, clean though and we managed but some of the other guests were quite obnoxious. Getting drunk on the sun deck and yelling for quite a while. Another kept setting his car alarm off and at some point he was naked waving adult toys and drugs around. Thankfully the manager called the police...

Really close to the beach and the famous boardwalk. Property is dated and the rooms show that. Our window had a broken lock, which took two requests to get fixed. Really good size though and all of the usual facilities.

I was able to book a room the same day. The Inn is extremely convenient and not over priced. Right across the street from the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. My boyfriend and I were able to walk to downtown from the Inn in 12 minutes or you can take a 6 minute drive/uber downtown for less than $6-7. The rooms...

The motel has a brilliant location across the road from the boardwalk and reasonable rooms. The breakfast was however sub-standard and no information provided about the breakfast hours. Well, they claimed there was a note on the reception door after they closed. Weird...

We only needed a one night stay on a Friday night and it rare for a SC hotel to allow this. Our room at Aqua Breeze was clean, safe and very basic. Quick and friendly check-in. Good bed and bathroom. Free parking and Wi-Fi. We missed in-room coffee, but grabbed cups to go from the lobby. The perfect location for...

Seriously it seems like every hotel/motel around the boardwalk costs a million dollars and has horrid ratings. I was skeptical about booking this room but took a chance and thankfully it was better than expected. The room looked like they tried to update it, as did the restroom. The room was clean and had what we needed. The beds left...
