Great for a night...

Would recommend Mon, Dec 7, 2015
The staff was extremely friendly, helpful and on call 24/7. My only complaint is that the sheet on the king sized bed wasn't fitted, but flat.

good value, no wifi

Would recommend Thu, Dec 3, 2015
overall good value for the money. Staff could not get the Wifi to work at all, very disappointing. My devices work everywhere else, so there must have been some setting that they couldn't figure out on their router.

Spontaneous surf trip

Would not recommend Tue, Nov 3, 2015
I checked the surf report after work and it looked really good for the next morning so we spontaneously booked a night so we could catch the early waves. Staying in Santa Cruz can be expensive and for what this place was, it was very expensive. It was very old and didn't seem like it was maintained very well. The room was dirty but it was just old with rust in the sink and bathtub. It was a last minute decision for us so we just packed our boards and came here. We weren't expecting much at all and didn't really care as we knew we would only be here for a few hours to sleep before we checked out and hit the water at 7am. There was a wandering guy in the parking lot that may have lived around the dumpsters but he seemed harmless. It served the intended purpose but we would probably not stay here again.

New paint on old hotel

Would not recommend Tue, Oct 20, 2015
Old hotel needs some deep cleaning and up grades. The tv was so old you could hardly read the tv menu. Beds were hard carpets were dirty. My sons feet were black by the end of the night.

Over night get away

Would recommend Tue, Oct 20, 2015
The hotel is in a great location. The staff is excellent. The only bad thing is the towels needs to be replaced, and the TV updated.

Good stay

Would not recommend Mon, Sep 28, 2015
The facility is old, but well maintained. Near liquor store. Staffs response to urgent issues in a timely manner. Can't complain with the money I paid. If you try to save money, this is a good place to stay.

Very nice staff

Would recommend Sat, Sep 26, 2015
The value for the hotel is very good, but I also think that because of that it attracts riffraff. A bit of a rough crowd always lingering out front. The staff however is awesome, and very helpful. Owners are really hospitable

Leaves something to be desired

Would not recommend Thu, Sep 24, 2015
We stopped through Santa Cruz for one night and were looking for a relatively inexpensive, clean space to crash for one evening. The hotel was almost at capacity yet they had a room for us. There was a buzzing noise of the refrigerator, simple stale smelling room, and an unappealing swimming pool in the front parking lot. We had hoped for a little more, and next time we will pay a little more because I wouldn't feel comfortable recommending this place to others.

Terriable

Would not recommend Thu, Jun 11, 2015
Room was not clean(dirty wall and furniture-stained) desk chair was ripped and torn. Bed spread had holes in it shower pan was stained looked dirty. Soap and lotions small and cheap. The staff was rude and talked to me as if I was a child. Instead of a greeting I got a lecture of do's and don't. Will never stay there again.
