We spent 24 hours in Santa Cruz with two kids under 5. The beach, boardwalk and kiddie rides were the main attraction for us, and having a hotel room within walking distance made for a great stay. The room was clean and comfortable, and staff was courteous.

This is a perfect location to stay and is very close to the Beach Boardwalk. Rooms are very clean and the management team couldn't be any friendlier. They are top notch and run the place right. You will not be disappointed staying here!

We stayed here for Wharf to Wharf with the main goal of being walking distance to both the beach and the start of the race. This location is perfect for that goal. It's only a 5 min walk to the Boardwalk and the same to the start of Wharf to Wharf. All of the hotels in the area jack up...

I booked the other Comfort inn in error and showed up at the beach boardwalk one, they graciously agreed to allow us to book a room there, which was greatly appreciated as we needed to be in that area for the Wharf to Wharf run.. There were a few maintenance issues with room which were taken care of promptly. Breakfast...

This hotel is indeed just steps from the Boardwalk, so if that is important to you it is an excellent choice. The rooms were clean and well kept. The other plus is the service. The staff accommodated us in several ways (assistance with parking, late check out, etc), and we really appreciated this! The area can be a zoo on...

We took a week end trip to Santa Cruz. We choose the Comfort Inn Beach Boardwalk for its close location to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk and the Beach Train to Roaring Camp. We had a queen bed in a very clean room. There was a fridge and microwave. The sconce lamps on each side of the bed had electrical outlets...

Weekend rates are high for the product delivered. Weekdays have better rates. Even though the location is near the Boardwalk, on the weekend, one might do better renting further out and taking a taxi. Across the street are two old closed motels. The Boardwalk is one block away. There is also a market on the corner, but you will need...

I booked this room on a trip to see some friends in Santa Cruz. Upon check-in, the manager was very friendly and helped me park. Later in the evening, we had about a dozen people in the room for a little while. The manager noticed this and assume that we had that many people staying in the room. While this...

Stayed here on spec as our original motel we planned to book into was full. Very good location within walking distance to the boardwalk. Has free parking and breakfast is included with your stay. Very nice staff and clean motel. Had a lounge around the pool in the afternoon sun bliss.

The location simply doesn't get better than this motel if you're looking to spend time at the beach/boardwalk area. We came in pretty late at night and the front desk staff helped us park in a specific spot in the jammed, tiny parking lot. But while it was tight, the parking was free and easy, which is outstanding considering the...
