Recent guest reviews

Comfortable place, Rob at the front desk was great! Called me to confirm our late arrival, very pleasant man. Easy check in. Right across the street from the Boardwalk & warf, less than a block from a great little cafe, beach St cafe.

the only thing good is its close to the board walk the bad things are its ols parking is very very very limited the tubs are not fill up its broken water pressure is very low old tv old everything

Easy access to beach. Looking forward for the remodel. Staff was nice

Old and run down. Remote didn't work, had to get someone to help.Lumpy pillows. Drain stopper on bathtub broken so kids couldn't take a bath. NO POOL. Just a dirt lot. All pictures I saw online showed a beautiful pool prominently displayed. Our whole family was very disappointed. I spent way to much on this place, and I would have never booked if I'd known there wouldn't be a pool. Breakfast was cheap and terrible. The staff was very nice and let us leave our car in the lot for a couple hours after check out. Location was great, except very loud at night.

Best part of this hotel is the location to the beach and the boardwalk. Not too expensive. It's clean and nothing big to complain about, but they don't have fitted sheets on the bed, which is strange and the comforter was so worn out I almost thought they didn't clean the room before we came since the bed looked like it wasn't made by staff. I'm not sure I would stay here again, but again nothing huge to complain about. It served its purpose for the night.

Great location but terrible parking. Would have liked eggs and other hot food for breakfast. Ronald at the front desk was great.

We were across the street from The beach, which was perfect. The beds were comfortable.

For the price I was really happy with this hotel. My only complaint would be that there isn't much room in their parking garage so it might be full at a busier time of year. Walking distance to the pier, boardwalk, and beach.

Great rates. Close to everything. Welcoming place.

Dirty hotel rooms. Stunk very bad. Way under staffed. Late on check in because rooms weren't ready.

This place was very nice location to spend time close to the beach and boardwalk, within walking distance. The only thing was the parking. wish they had closer parking.

Being right across the road from the beach was really nice waking up to. We didn't really have to use our car all weekend. The staff was very nice and helpful.

Don't expect a five star experience but the location is great and the staff is helpful/friendly. The room is just fine, didn't spend time there. A great location to walk to everything else and didn't have to pay for extras such as internet, parking, etc.

Had a great time - wonderful beach view and access to fun! The kids had a blast!

You can't get any closer to the beach. Ample parking. Easy to walk to restaurants and the boardwalk. Room was priced excellant. There is a bowling alley next door which can be noisy at times. Bring your own pillows from home if you can. Fridge and microwave nice touch.

Great location and value for the money. Very enthusiastic manager (Will) at check in with great recommendations for local dining within an easy walk of the hotel. Parking in the deck is a little bit of a pain in that you have to balance your bags on the stairway to swipe your card to unlock the gate when leaving, but that was only a bother when checking out, the other times we didn't have the bags in hand... The TV is the old square type with a satellite box, so lots and lots of choices, but the picture for everything is clipped on the left and right side. All in all, a great value for the money and I'd return anytime.

This is definitely a place where you can sleep. It is across the street from the Boardwalk and wicked affordable in the off season. Stay here, it's alright.

With this hotel, you are paying for location. It is right next to the boardwalk and across from the beach, so if you're looking for that, it's great. However, the hotel itself is old and run down looking, although many in the area are. I will say that the beds were comfortable, and it wasn't necessarily dirty, but it gives a dirty feel just because the comforters are outdated, the grout is stained from years of use, the pool area has chipping paint, old cement, and downright ugly. It was pretty costly for what you get, but again, the location is very convenient. But, if you don't need to see the ocean, there are cheaper, equivalent hotels just a block or so back.

My family of 4 stayed here in May 2015. I booked the Coastview based on amazing reviews that I read. Sure, it's far from luxury but it's location makes it a jackpot!! Minutes from Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and the wharf. Great restaurants close by and right across the street from the beach!!! Free breakfast(pastries, cereal, bagels, juice, coffee), very friendly, helpful staff, clean rooms with mini fridge/microwave. Pool too. Only concern was the parking lot and garage was TIGHT!!! No biggie, we parked and walked everywhere over the weekend. I highly recommend this hotel! We'd stay here again!

Room was very clean and the location was great. Staff was friendly and helpful. The tv remote didn't work, but that was a small drawback. Overall we had a wonderful time
