I read the reviews and booked a night at the Santa Cruz Inn only to find a completely different experience than I expected. The manager (who was nice) came to the desk wearing a sleeveless white T-shirt behind bullet-proof plastic. I had to shout through little holes drilled

Response from santacruzinn, MANAGER at Santa Cruz Inn
Responded 10 Aug 2009
Dear Carol. Thank you for staying at the Sant Cruz Inn. I do apoligize for the bad experience you had at the Inn. Unfortunately, I disagree with your remarks on the review. Some of the issues that you had encountered with like for one; - the structural features of the property, this is a historical building built in 1927 and the historical features of the property have not been removed during remodelling, one being the entrance to doorways(bathroom & entrance doors). - due to the weather conditions in the summer periods, the heat can be extremely unbearable. Unfortunately, we cannot do anything about this. Our records indicate that upon your arrival, you were not satisfied with the 1st suite allocated to you due to extreme heat, the desk clerk had arranged for another suite to accommodate your needs. - on making your initial reservation, you should have been told or noticed from your booking that we do provide a 'complimentary" breakfast and not a continental breakfast. Once again, we do apoligize for any problems that you had experienced during your stay with us, and we hope to see you again in the near future.

I booked this hotel on Alaska Air's hotel website, (the same as Expedias). I was a bit worried about the low price but my options were limited as I was running out of time. The hotel is an older mission style building in downtown Riverside. Two stories with a newer wing. An

"location is near the riverside convention center, that's the only good thing about this place"
"Run. Don't stop."
"Lower floor would likely be quieter."
"Avoid staying here."
