Family Getaway

This was the perfect family getaway to Santa Cruz. The motel was convenient to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk and The Wharf. The staff was most friendly and accommodating. I would most definitely stay there again and recommend this motel to others.

Summer Trip

We stayed at this hotel on a Sunday night because it was $100 cheaper than Saturday night. The room was decent, the beds were good and clean. The bathroom was also clean. There were however stains on the carpet and on the chair so it made me want to keep my shoes on. The continental breakfast was great with a lot of choices. The lobby was clean and the staff was friendly. Overall a pretty good place to stay. My one complaint was the garbage truck at 5:45 am with the loud backup beeper, other than that it was a quiet stay. But Santa Cruz in the summer is crazy and won't be coming back this time of year.

If you happen to visit Capitola, beware of the metered parking. It is not visible from all spots and I received a $36 parking ticket while there.

Perfect for a quick get-a-way

The hotel's in a great location. Close to all the freeways. Restaurants for all palates within 5 minutes by car.The beaches and Boardwalk's a short distance away. Ninese Marks National Forest was less than 15 minutes away. From the hotel, you can hit all the major attractions in either direction in less than 15 minutes.Great for people who wanted to leave the car and walk. Prices (gas/restaurants/events) were reasonably priced. Enough events to handle all ages/interests. Would defintely return to both the town and hotel. Enjoy!!!!

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Look for free/inexpensive events and make an adventure of it...i.e. spend the day at the beach where you can picnic, fish, roller skate..etc... all in the same location so that once you pay the fee, you're set for the day.....

very clean room

The room that we got at first smelled really bad. I had to ask for another room and they changed it with much better room with no smell at all. I was wondering why they didn't give that second room to us in the first place.

overpriced

I stayed here for new years eve and although the room was fine, I had requested the king size bed and instead got a queen. I didn't complain until I found out another couple we were with had paid less and gotten a king. Disappointing
