The stay was pretty great. The gentleman at check in was great and helpful and just had great customer service at check in! We also got checked in 3 hours before check in and that was very nice for me and my girlfriend. The hotel room was so nice and the bed was really comfy and the room was very...

Perfect place to stay when you have an evening event in the Sun Room Coconut Grove, Boardwalk, Santa Cruz. You can walk door to door. Mike Patel was the very pleasant manager when we checked in. This was a very nice and clean Comfort Inn with nice shower and comfortable bed. Breakfast was more than I expected. Most of the...

I stayed in Santa Cruz again for business and stayed on first floor. I never sleep better as the bed is just fantastic and noise level low. For convenience this location is perfectly located for walks on the beach or eating out without need to drive and deal with parking. Best managed property you will find in this area without...

Very friendly staff. They provided excellent service. They let us check in earlier than the usual check in time. The room and also outside was very clean. If I ever go to Santa Cruz again, I will definitely stay at this location. I would rate them 10+.

Spent two nights in Santa Cruz on our California road trip. Been to SC numerous times before but this place is by far the best considering the price ($100/night). Super nice staff and located within walking-distance from boardwalk, downtown and west cliff.

The manager allowed us a later check out time so that some of us could rest while others toured the UC Santa Cruz campus. He was also very helpful. The room was clean and quiet and it is a short walk to the boardwalk. The pool looks much bigger in this picture though- in case that it is important to...

We reserved 3 rooms, 2 queen & 1 king. We had to wait 30 mins for 2 of the rooms to be cleaned. Parking was very tight for our 12 passenger van. The rooms were clean & nicely decorated. We walked to boardwalk 3 blocks away. Neighborhood was not noisy. The beds felt comfortable. Breakfast selection was comparable to other...

My first time back to Santa Cruz in over 45 years! It had changed just a bit! So we were looking for a reasonably priced motel close to the Boardwalk and this for the bill perfectly! This motel is located on the street that dead ends at the Boardwalk, only a few blocks away. We walked to the Boardwalk and...

Typical Santa Cruz hotel I guess. Great location right by the boardwalk. Within walking distance of downtown. Those where the good parts!!! The pool is the tiniest pool ever seen. But who cares when you are right by the beach? Parking is super tight. However, one can't complain because it is free!!! What drove me crazy was the zip ties...

On our way back from southern California we stayed on night in Santa Cruz before flying out from SF the day after. The inn is run by an Indian family, whom I must say is doing a fantastic job! Firstly, they are very welcoming and helpful. They are truly interested to get to know their guests, even if you are...
