We needed to take our daughter to UCSC. The price for this hotel was quite high. I guess it's because it's back to school time and parents from out of town basically had no choice. The hotel is very modern designed. I like the big wood reception desk. The room was clean and comfortable. If the price is more reasonable, I'd give a 5 stars.
The attendant was very nice and accommodating. The room itself was not great but what do you expect for $85. Everything is walking distance and it is located by great surf spots. I would stay again to go surfing. My room had an ocean view. Room 212-214 have pretty good views. It also very quiet. The room itself is a little dated and could maybe be a little cleaner. The breakfast needs some serious improvement. Very few options and coffee is terrible. Overall my stay was pleasant. I would stay there again.
You are not paying for the room. When the caulking and fixtures are better in your own house then you expect a 99 dollar room not a 300 dollar room. The grounds and service are great. Food is excellent. But management is not paying to keep the rooms state of art and as clean as you would want for a hotel this price. Carpets in hallways were dirty, room carpet was near end of useful life, and bathroom caulking was old and dirty. For the price and location, this room should have had a high end laminate floor, clean white caulking, and brighter lights. You could not read with the dull lighting in the room and in lamps. And on first floor the sliding glass door has no locks. No way to leave slider open a bit for fresh air with no fear of theft.
Small room and bath. Perfect for what we needed. Room was hot perhaps the heater was stuck on, I turned the thermostat down but still hot. I didn't call the desk to ask for repairs so it falls on me. I was too tired to do anything about it so I lived with it.
We've stayed here several times, always in a different room. Some rooms are nice and updated, others are older and need to be updated. They have really good coffee in the rooms, which is a plus. And the beds are comfortable for me.
It was not a bad hotel but it was hot the weekend we were there and they have no air conditioning. They do provide a fan but it was still too hot. The grounds could use some work and the vending machine was not working. The staff was friendly and attentive. They do have a restaurant attached to the front desk which was convienient. It was also centrally located but still away from all the crowds.
Great Motel for staying in Santa Cruz to hit the Boardwalk and beaches.
Unfortunately Expedia advertised that a roll out bed was available, and it was not which caused a few issues. But that was not the Motel's fault, they were very prompt and helpful toward remedying the situation with extra sheets blankets and pillows
i wanted a hotel close to the boardwalk and close to the wharf.....this hotel has that down perfectly, walk out the front door and across the street and your at the arcade end of the boardwalk, walk across the street and turn right and you have the volleyball courts and the wharf.....couldnt ask for a better location.
When i booked this hotel i wasnt expecting alot because of the mixed reviews, but after staying here i think the people who complained were either used to higher end hotels or just had some fluke accidents.....the room i stayed in was perfect, the bed was comfortable, the pillows not too hard not too soft. I wasnt expecting a refrigerator in the room to be honest but there was a very nice one in the room.
The only things cons i could see with the room were the dated tv, it was a large tube tv and its cabinet could have been used for more storage for clothes if there was a flat screen in the room, and the shower gels they put in the room had ginseng in them and smelled really weird, we didnt want to use them so we had to buy our own, which really wasnt that big of an issue....just a couple small things really
I would recommend this to anyone who wanted to stay close to the wharf and boardwalk.....oh and for the people who complained about there being no ocean view from there room.....the hotel does have rooms with an ocean view but you have to book directly thru the hotel to get those rooms as they dont specify rooms thru expedia.....so there gonna cost more..
