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... More

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... More

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... More

Hotel staff are really friendly and helpful. The beds are good here. Clean and nice breakfast. Fridge and microwave. However, it is noisy and there is building work going on opposite and you get woken up with this.

We went there for a weekend getaway so only stayed for one night. We stayed in a suite king bedroom room #405. Room was spacious (maybe cos is a suite), very clean. There was a hole in the bathtub (not the drain) that didn't get fix but instead the management put a anti-slipping mat to cover it. Not a worry... More

Our group of 7 stayed at the comfort Inn for a couple nights, and had a wonderful time. You can see the Santa Cruz boardwalk from the parking lot of the hotel, and there's a nice low key place to grab some drinks near by (Coasters). Our one problem was that parking is pretty limited, so if you are coming... More

This hotel suited our needs. The room was clean & comfortable. Loved having both a workable microwave & refrigerator in the room.! It's within walking distance to the boardwalk & downtown which was great! Some reviews mentioned it being in a "seedy" area of Santa Cruz-- we didn't have an issue as Santa Cruz does have its share of homeless... More

We stay in a lot of comfort inn's as they are usually clean and have a decent breakfast and this inn was no exception. Nice breakfast. Clean, comfortable room, and walking distance to the beach boardwalk! There is construction across the street that might bother you if you're a late sleeper, but they didn't start until after 8am. I would... More

I'm just back from a cross-country driving trip which included stays at several hotels and we stayed at this Comfort Inn for four nights. It is a great location, only 1 1/2 blocks from the Santa Cruz boardwalk and also an easy walk into the main commercial part of town, which is centered on Pacific Avenue. You can walk to... More

Although the hotel is close to the boardwalk, the whole area is in need of much improvement, in fact, a little scary. The hotel was OK, parking was difficult, the breakfast very poor. Breakfast was from 7AM to 10AM. We got there at 8 and there were 2 link sausages and no other hot food, the waffle batter was out,... More
