A friend and I were traveling down the coast on a budget so we went to an area of Santa Cruz that has lots of inexpensive motels. At every office we walked into we were greeted rudely and suspiciously UNTIL we got to the Capri where the owner (I presume) welcomed us politely and warmly. So we decided to stay...

The room was very roomy. Actually two rooms. One with a king and one with a regular bed. Lots of bad things. Floor was fake wood and so dirty our socks were black after just settling into our room. The distance to the boardwalk was longer then advertised. It is across the river. The security lock on the door was...

Stayed one night, hotel says no pets which is just as well as you could not swing a cat in our so called deluxe queen room. Ants were crawling on the table when we arrived, and room had an odour we could not quiet recognise. Location to major attractions is Ok but right next to a major intersection and busy...

So we booked this last minute and got it quite cheap. It was very basic, no hair dryer, no fridge, no tea /coffee facilities. Yes the bed had a weird crinkly sheet underneath it and the pillows were so flat but it was OK. The motel isn't far from the town only a walk away so there's plenty to do...

A crappy, dirty motel, a proper dive!! A plastic sheet covers the mattress which is wrinkled and crackly, a sheet over that that doesn't fit, pillows are so small and flat you'd be better off without one and if you ask for more they don't have any. Whole room is layered in dust and dirt. Very noisy location. Towels were...

We arrived at the hotel late on a Sunday night. The guy at the desk seeing we had a lot of luggage gave us a large room. The room was fine yet basic and did us just fine after a long journey. He even gave us directions to the beach area. We had no complaints with our stay.

Weird little hotel running minimum everything. No coffee maker, no blow dryer not even Kleenex! Smelled like smoke and if anything comes up too bad managers "out of town". Worth about $50. Night but not more. From other reviews it ranges from $50 to $200 a night I paid $108 Friday night and $188 Saturday night. Wayyyyyy over priced. Bed,...

Good value for money as this area is quite expensive. We only stayed here for a night. Bathroom was dirty. Floors were sticky. I had to put towel down on the floor to feel comfortable walking in there. Bed was comfortable and staff was accommating. It was fine for the one night’s stay.
