Not as scary as it looks...

If you want to be close to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, this is a great hotel. It is well within walking distance. Beyond that, it's an average property with very tight parking and tiny "breakfast" area. Very nice manager and staff, and they were very attentive to our needs, but it's no more than an average property, at best.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

The cheapest tourist stores are on the boardwalk and wharf, but the best shopping is in Capitola or Monterey.

Excellent place to stay

Went to Santa Cruz take my girlfriend on a little birthday trip. Started looking at places and they were all really over priced in my opinion. So I went with super 8 east which was a great choice. Getting there was really easy from the freeway. Upon arriving I noticed the location couldn't of got any better. It's right next to the boardwalk the staff was awesome didn't even have to drive really cause everything you need is right there. The rooms were very clean smelled good and beds were comfortable. Overall I think its worth the money for where your at and I will be staying there again

Clean and affordable place to stay

The Super 8 was a very clean and affordable place to stay with my family. The continental breakfast included waffles, yogurt, toast, cereal, fruit and hot/cold beverages. The rooms were colorful and tastefully decorated and the cleaning staff did an excellent job. The Boardwalk and Wharf were within walking distance, and Downtown was but a short drive. The managers were very kind and friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

Last minute trip

We booked this hotel the night before our reservation for the weekend before the 4th of July. For that reason it makes sense that we paid $200 after taxes and fees for the night. However, it is within an easy walk from the boardwalk, parking was difficult but the friendly staff made a spot for me. The room was clean and the bed comfy. It's a super 8- it would be a $70 room elsewhere. I'd stay here again.

Good location, excellent value

Hotel is typical older property but with larger rooms and updates to make it very comfortable and livable. Very clean, excellent helpful staff, good location two blocks from Santa Cruz Boardwalk. Room was spacious for this class of hotel. Free breakfast was basic but OK; no breakfast space but trays to take food back to room. Excellent value, clean, comfortable.

Great location - Very Clean - Helpful Staff

Overall this place was very good. The check-in process was quick and efficient. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and we found they will go out of their way to help guests. The room was very clean, and we were impressed with several things in the room. For example: an easy-clean remote/phone, a quality make-up remover, the usual amenities, etc. The decor/furniture in the room was also modern and appealing. Also, the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was good - cereal/toast/english muffins/pastries/fruit/OJ/AJ/Coffee. Basically, a continental breakfast. There are 2 Super 8's on this street, pretty much across from each other. Make sure you book the correct one (Super 8 East). It's on the left side of the street (the street is one-way). Location is great, a few minutes to the beach, a few minutes to downtown.

A Winning Location

We were able to walk to dinner and breakfast, if you want to go to a quiet beach without a ton of people, I suggest you drive north on Highway 1 to Davenport.

good experience

we stayed at this hotel based on its location and proximity to the santa cruz beach boardwalk and the beach. it is just a short walk from the hotel. the rooms are small, but clean and they appear as though they have been recently painted and updated with new bedding and curtains. although the room was close to the street, it wasn't overly noisy and our children (ages 2, 4 and 6) were able to sleep fine. we could hear the ppl in the room next door, but again, it didn't seem as though the walls were paper thin. the staff was friendly and helpful. the continental breakfast was good with a nice choice of food items and beverages. we did have to make a couple of trips back and forth between the lobby (where the food is set up) and our room as there isn't a dining room or tables set up. (the lobby is too small to accomodate diners) overall, for the price, this hotel was very good. if you want more amenities or larger rooms, you will pay for the luxury. we have stayed in more expensive hotel/motels and have not had as good an experience.
