          • Family with children

            Close to Santa Cruz Boardwalk and the rate was good

            Room is newly painted, but it stinks and the furnitures and carpet were so old. I did not feel the room was clean at all.

              5.0
          • Older travelers

            The room was comfortable and spacious on the top floor. The bed was good and the bathroom adequate. There was balcony which was a plus

            Our room was a 'view' room - not of the ocean but a river than runs into the ocean. Unfortunately it also overlooked a busy road, so except for the late night it was noisy

          • Older travelers

            Room was noisy on a very busy road - not a very nice part of town.

          • Single

            Spacious room was good for value, complete with refrigerator and microwave (would be good for extended stay).

            Loud neighbors, Cable didn't work, no view.

          • Couple

            Judging by the other reviews I think I significantly over paid for this place. It was an acceptable motel but I paid a decent hotel price so I left feeling a bit ripped-off

            • Average rating
              4.6
          • Group of friends

            Service was great and the room was clean.

            Puffy Pillows because the one they had were flat.

            I did not like the hotel. It did not have adequate lighting in the room. I had to ask to be moved to a different room, and it was not any different. The hotel is older and in need of renovation. The website did not do the hotel justice with the pictures. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

            The balcony door and screen were older and did not open or lock as they should. The balcony door window was scratched or dirty. There was little to no lighting in the room. It was a drab olive color. Not all rooms had a fan (as there was no air conditioning) or a luggage rack. Since I changed rooms, I brought the fan and luggage rack to the other room. There was no light to work at the desk, when I asked for one, they were unable to provide a lamp for me. I am a student and I worked at the desk. There was no work out room or a pool either.
