Promised breakfast then they did not serve breakfast because of COVID. Do not advertise breakfast.

The property was clean and staff were friendly. This place is very close to boardwalk and take only 5 mins to walk.

Great location. Friendly staff. A bit run down. Needs some updates.

Loved the location...walking distance to boardwalk....

Rough start but the they were able to accommodate, had extra guests which added extra fees per person. Only 1 car per room limit. I like how the room was no smoking and parking meters in the front for extra cars. Surveillance cameras was a plus. Mostly walked to the Boardwalk and surrounding locations. Breakfast on time and fresh

Nice Hotel in walking distance from the boardwalk, clean. Breakfast was opened a bit late a couple of days (I cared just because I had to leave for work). One of the concierge was really nice and friendly. Very good wifi in my room (2nd floor, room 208-212).

Great location, 3 blocks from the boardwalk. But "breakfast" was a joke. Pancake machine, oatmeal, sausage, cereal, toast, crappy yogurt, questionable hard boiled eggs. Now pick half of those fine items because the other half are out of stock.

This is a nice little hotel, walking distance from Santa Cruz beach Broadwalk. They have a little pool and free breakfast. It's good for family and is a reasonable piece. Not fancy, but will do.

I went to this hotel last minute which was nice. I was skeptical of the smaller hotels this location is by far the best in the area! Great location, fully updated room, walking distance to the boardwalk!! Just fully satisfied with this location I will stay again!!!

Overall nice experience. Very close to Santa cruz beach.

Exactly as described and very friendly staff. Would definitely stay again.

The stay was okay. Started out with my husbands service dog and how they were really adamant about seeing documents, when by law he doesn't have to show them. Loved the fact the boardwalk was in walking distance. Next time a different hotel.

Excellent Location near Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Rooms are clean and well equiped for a motel. Staff is friendly, thus it is a good place to stay in Santa Cruz.

Here for short vacation. Average hotel, simple for stay over night.

Friendly, attentive staff. Location perfect for a short walk to the Boardwalk

The room was clean and it was nice to have a microwave and a refrigerator. Area was a bit seedy to say the least. Although it was only a short walk to the boardwalk, it not a nice family walk after dark. The pool was great if you have a family of lilliputians. I've seen bigger jacuzzis. The desk guy yelled at my kid for trying to score some orange juice in the afternoon. This apparently was passed the "continental breakfast" happy hour. The only reason I was in the office was because my room keys had failed for the second time. I stayed at the end of September and paid a premium for a room didn't live up my expectations.

It was an OK place to stay. We liked its proximity to the Santa Cruz beach and boardwalk, and the room had been re-done, so it wasn't run down, just on the small side. The flat screen TV had plenty of channels available, and there was a microwave, fridge, and little coffee pot. The parking was tight, but we managed. The swimming pool looked clean. Not in the best of neighborhoods, so it was a little scary walking back at night. We would stay there again, but not if we had small kids.

Read all the previous reviews and was a little worried, but took a chance and was totally satisfied. Pool is small, but your three blocks from the ocean. Swim there. They are in the middle of renovations, but you could hardly tell. no noise at all. Our room was like brand new. We walked every place we wanted to go because of the great location. Use Orbitz to get best deal. Overall I was totally satisfied, they even had jumper cables when my rental would not start. Thanks Orbitz and Comfort Inn.

The hotel was just okay - clean and provided the necessities. What tourists don't realize is that the Santa Cruz boardwalk area is NOT a nice area. It is rundown and not a great area for walking at night! After dinner we were approached several times asking for food or leftovers! Walking back to hotel we had to skirt around several drunks. If you want to stay in the Santa Cruz area look at the Capitolla area which is still Santa Cruz but MUCH nicer!
