This hotel is indeed just steps from the Boardwalk, so if that is important to you it is an excellent choice. The rooms were clean and well kept. The other plus is the service. The staff accommodated us in several ways (assistance with parking, late check out, etc), and we really appreciated this! The area can be a zoo on...

We took a week end trip to Santa Cruz. We choose the Comfort Inn Beach Boardwalk for its close location to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk and the Beach Train to Roaring Camp. We had a queen bed in a very clean room. There was a fridge and microwave. The sconce lamps on each side of the bed had electrical outlets...

Weekend rates are high for the product delivered. Weekdays have better rates. Even though the location is near the Boardwalk, on the weekend, one might do better renting further out and taking a taxi. Across the street are two old closed motels. The Boardwalk is one block away. There is also a market on the corner, but you will need...

I booked this room on a trip to see some friends in Santa Cruz. Upon check-in, the manager was very friendly and helped me park. Later in the evening, we had about a dozen people in the room for a little while. The manager noticed this and assume that we had that many people staying in the room. While this...

Stayed here on spec as our original motel we planned to book into was full. Very good location within walking distance to the boardwalk. Has free parking and breakfast is included with your stay. Very nice staff and clean motel. Had a lounge around the pool in the afternoon sun bliss.

The location simply doesn't get better than this motel if you're looking to spend time at the beach/boardwalk area. We came in pretty late at night and the front desk staff helped us park in a specific spot in the jammed, tiny parking lot. But while it was tight, the parking was free and easy, which is outstanding considering the...

We stayed here 1 night driving from San Francisco to LA. It is walking distance from the boardwalk amusement park so its a great location. The hotel its-self is just OK, in my opinion its overpriced. We stayed in a suite because we had 4 children with us and it was very small. The front desk was very helpful, they...

Comfort inn in Santa Cruz was decent. It's not in the nicest part of town, but with free parking, free breakfast (my teenage daughter liked the sausage), and a very friendly desk staff, it was worth the stay for the price.

Stayed for one night with my wife and child. Room was fine, it's what you would expect from a comfort inn. It was a little loud when people were using the pool. The breakfast was ok, not a huge selection but the waffles were good. The proximity to the boardwalk was awesome. I can see how parking could be a...

This hotel is ok, the pictures make it look better than it actually is the lobby is modern but very small. The service is awful, the rooms are somewhat clean. The location is great in terms of its proximity to the beach but that is the only real upside. The place is just really poorly run, trash in the parkinglot,...
