San Jose, California
Reviewed 26 July 2016

Comfortable room and affordable price for the location. Close to the beach. Parking was limited. They only allowed one car per room and you need to pay extra $10 for the second car. Breakfast was simple. Some guests smoked weed and we could smell it near the pool area.

I have been taking my family here for at least 5 years in the month of July. Nice rooms for two or eight people. Great location & price with discount for returning trips. You can not beat the service. There is between 18 and 28 of us and we always have a great time. You need to check it out.

The Aqua Breeze is an older, kitschy motel like so many in the Santa Cruz boardwalk area but it is clean and well kept. As long as you are on board with that kind of experience, it is truly excellent! It is directly across the street from the famed boardwalk and the owner/operators are amazing people. They are so helpful...

Good location right across from the boardwalk, cheap and you get what you pay for. Room 206 is very noisy though, some sort of banging going on all night. avoid it if possible. Breakfast is very very basic. Staff are very friendly at reception

The room was decent and clean. Good location; across the street from the boardwalk. The staff was friendly and helpful and offered free parking. I would stay here again. They apparently offer a free breakfast but I left before it was served.

Our stay was absolutely fabulous. Clean room. Beautiful bathroom. Comfy beds. Wonderful staff. We stayed during that February storm that hit the area and it was a beautiful view watching the lights of Neptune's kingdom shine through the rain and reflect off the wet lot. Location is the best. I've been wanting to stay at this place for years and...

We stayed here overnight on our way to LA from San Francisco. Its a 2 min walk to the boardwalk (the kids had heaps of fun!) The rooms & bathroom were clean & spacious. The owners of this establishment were fantastic & went above & beyond to help our family out. Our son has a intellectual learning disability & he...

Aqua Breeze is a couple of minutes from the board walk and beach and 15 minute walk to the centre of down town. Everyone was super helpful. It is very clean and comfortable. There is no coffee in room but you can get from reception from 8 till 10am. The wifi was very good. A good choice budget hotel in...

If I was rating the staff it would be 5 stars all the way. They were all nice, friendly, and helpful. This place is a total dump! I can't believe we paid $70! The room was small, clean but small. The air conditioner was technically working, but it was not cooling the room down one bit, and there was no...

Stopped at this motel for an overnight stay and got a room at a pretty decent price. The location is great if you are visiting the boardwalk or the wharf; I loved that I could leave my vehicle parked and walk there. The room was nice and clean and the WiFi was good. My only complaint would be that it...
