Nice rooms. Not sure why there is a parking fee if you're paying to stay. One thing that I didn't care like was that you can rent areas for private parties and party guest took over the fire pit and hot tub area.
Can't believe that the only air conditioning available was only turning the fan higher or lower. Thank God it was only 80 degrees when we were there unlike 100 degrees just a few days ago. The overall resort is very nice with a great place to go have a glass of wine and watch the sunset. Our room had a nice little deck but it had an ash tray out there waiting for us. It was a non-smoking room but I guess you could smoke on the deck. If our neighbors had been outside smoking on their deck (5 feet away) it would have been miserable. My advice? Call the hotel directly and ask about their smoking policy, the availability of an air conditioned room and also what actual type of room you are getting. They gave us a "fully accessible" room without us asking for it. I would have preferred a real shower rather than one with a seat unit and a shower head that was loose that you had to hold in your hand. In other words...I'll give it a 3.
Does not look like pictures. Very good location, I felt safe walking down to the boardwalk with my two daughters even at night. Young man at front desk was very nice and helpful. Breakfast is served in the front office and there is no where to sit so you have to take it back to your room, kind of a pain if you forget syrup or need something you have to go back to office to get it. Older room but bed is comfortable. Don't forget an iron.
The mighty Pacific serves as center stage and backdrop for all things leisure in Santa Cruz. Its boardwalk offers rollercoaster thrills with bay views. Down Beach Street, the city wharf is a prime fishing and whale-watching spot. Nearby, surfers near and far head to Steamer Lane to catch monster waves. Downtown’s charming Pacific Avenue plays hosts to land lovers with its local shops and cafes.
