The breakfast was the best complimentary breakfast I have ever seen. Front desk staff were always delightful and rooms were clean and updated!!! Very fair prices, nice pool, and close enough to the boardwalk and downtown that the drive to each place was no problem!

Our family of six was road tripping across California with one night in Santa Cruz. We were looking for someplace that was inexpensive, clean, and close enough to walk to and from The Boardwalk. This place checked all of our wants and needs nicely. The hotel was a Days Inn at one point and still had some of the logos...

We had a room with two double beds. The room was just cleaned so the smell of cleaner was fresh when we opened the door. Bedding was average, beds firm, nice pillows, walls and decor was modern, clean. The wall outlet next to the bed included USB jacks. The television was a nice size with a wide variety of cable...

Good clean rooms. Friendly staff. Okay breakfast. Overall this was exactly what we were expecting for the price and would recommend to others wanting a good value and clean accommodation . Didn't use the pool or any of the facilities.

We checked in on Saturday afternoon. The room was smelly, unclean and in disrepair. I was shocked that a hotel was able to charge so much for the condition on their room. The area was questionable and walls and floors were paper thing. Since we were only staying for one night, we thought it would be okay. We went out...

We found it on hotels tonight for a bargain. And we didn't know what to expect. But as soon as we walked in, we felt that it was clean. The service was also great, a little thing were that they didn't showed where our room where so we figured it out ourselves. First, the refrigerator where gone, and soon after...

Made reservation through Priceline and check-in was easy. Realized I had stayed here before when it was a Days Inn. It's not a fancy hotel but they've updated their rooms to be more stylish and there's plenty of room. It's also nice that they have a free parking lot. The location is a 10 minute walk to the beach.

I would completely advise against this place. Terrible neighborhood! I understand non smoking rooms, but was warned at check in that I had to go off property to smoke. Mind you, there were cigarette butt's everywhere and if they caught you, there was a $350 fine. I went to smoke on sidewalk off premises and there was some sort of...
