Your standard motel with all the basics you will need (microware, fridge, aircon and etc). It was clean and close to the sea. Recommend if you need to stay somewhere on the budget. The only downside- some people actually live in the motel and they were quite loud at night. (People were drinking outside on the stairwell)

We paid a really low price for our room and chose the hotel for location, not luxury, and we got exactly what we expected. The room was large, clean and everything worked (TV, wifi, shower etc), even the air conditioning although it was pretty noisy. The only member of staff we met was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very...

The rooms are cozy with all basic amenities except they don't have refrigerators and microwave. But they do provide complimentary breakfast and free wifi. The room is conveniently located near boardwalk. One can easily walk to Main beach, covell beach, west cliff drive, explanatorium, Wharf and many restaurants and cafe nearby. We had an awesome time in Santa Cruz and...

Fantastic location, friendly staff, room in great condition and tasty breakfast - I highly recommend staying at this stylish Motel. Don't forget to ask for Joe's "Lost Boys Tour" which is truly epic. Grandpa's house is a must see if your a fan of the movie. :)

Don't be fooled by the appealing photos on the website, the list of amenities or the prime location. This property is in dire need of a major overhaul: Burn marks on the bedding, crusty white stains and oil marks on the chair, the ceiling smoke detector broken, torn window screens, moth holes in the curtains. The grime is thick in...

Friendly lively chap on reception when we arrived, room was clean with a comfy bed, good shower. Basic facilities, no hairdryer or coffee maker. Breakfast was bad. Don't bother, we visited lots of motels in California with basic breakfast and this one was by far the worst, even the coffee tasted bad.

We had a good stay here where the management made us feel welcomed. We stayed for one night and the manager informed us we should have stayed for at least a couple of days, which having stayed there now we totally agree with him. The rooms were a decent size and breakfast was included. The manager was very helpful informing...

Stayed here when we moved our daughter to school. Awesome innkeepers and great location. Close to beach and Boardwalk, also a pretty good taco shop across the street. We will definitely stay again when we come visit. Thanks!!

Travelling solo so watching the budget. This motel looks rather daunting initially and is basic (with VERY basic breakfast provided - and no plates / cups / kettle in the room) but it's clean and very well situated near beach, wharf & boardwalk, with plenty of reasonably priced eating places nearby. Main town area and transport links (local buses and...

A group of friends spent a long weekend here specifically because of the location - within walking distance of the boardwalk and pier. The managers were very nice and accommodated us by putting our ocean view rooms (worth the small additional charge) together at the end of the hall. The light breakfast and coffee in the morning was perfect. There...
