There was fresh cookies in the lobby my kids loved it

I love the location of this hotel, a lot of ammentities near by , close to shopping, great restaurants and walking distance to the beach. Very friendly staff and clean rooms!

The room and staff were great. The pool was clean and refreshing, with a pleasant hot-tub.

The staff of the hotel was very friendly upon checking in and throughout our stay

We had a fantastic say- room was very clean and the bed was one of the most comfortable we have slept in. Also enjoyed the fresh cookies at the front desk.

Very nice, pleasant, very good breakfast, deliciouis cookies at the front desk. Mattress was lopsided to the downhill on the edge--indicative of too much sitting on it? I don't like to feel like I'm rolling off the mountain.... Compressors outside the room were very noisy, but they shut those off by 11 p.m. Stayed there on a Thurs night with reasonable rates, moved out on Fri to another hotel. Too bad their Fri/Sat rates are so high ($200+ MORE than Thursday).

This is a very nice hotel. However, the name suggests it is "by-the-sea," which it is not. Would stay there again, though. Very comfortable and a decent price.

Hotel was clean and convenient for family vacation around Santa Cruz, Monterey, Capitola area.

Overall clean and comfortable room, Good size as well. Property a little dated but up kept Well. When the light are out feels like a 5 star resort. I would stay Here again. Close to local restaurant flair and modern conveniences.

I liked the decor, the room was comfortable and spacious, the staff was courteous and helpful. The location is great. If you want to go shopping or to the beach you can go on foot. It is a short drive from Santa Cruz. The pool and hot tub are tiny but we managed to squeeze in.

A repeat visit. The new breakfast room is nice. The place is quite, clean and convenient. The bed is comfortable.

This hotel was not expensive and was close to beach.

This hotel is always clean and quite. We needed more towels but other than that it was nice.

Very welcoming concierge. Large, clean room with nice amenities (iron, ironing board, hair dryer, maps of area and suggestions for activities, cable, mini fridge, coffee, etc). Nice looking pool and hot tub. Lovely posters of annual begonia festival and wharf to wharf runs. Average continental breakfast. Comfy bed!!

Staff was wonderful. Room was great, bed was comfortable, plenty of pillows and blankets. Hot tub was awesome. Only improvement I could see was needed, was a fan in the bathroom, but other than that, was just perfect. No comoplaints.

Very friendly, helpful staff. Great amenities. Free WiFi and parking. Breakfast included hot items, as well as the usual continental breakfast menu.

good location, pillows too hard, friendly staff, good experience

The ice machine was extremely loud other than that experience was perfect.

Very happy with this hotel and the staff was excellent. Would definitely stay here again.

Staff was friendly and helpful, free parking, good location, 15 minute walk to the village, did not use microwave or refrigerator, but nice to have for longer visit.
