Power was out when I arrived due to the blackout. When the power did come on, only 1 out of the 2 TVs worked and was not able to access any WiFi or internet on any of our smart phones. Staff and cleanliness was great but also wished they had more food to offer then a small section of “snacks”

This is a very nice property. I will definitely stay there again. The room was clean , the entire property was clean and the staff was very accommodating.

When I arrived I was greeted by two young men very friendly. Implementing social distance, sanitizer, mask. It made me feel a safe clean environment. rooms were sanitized and the door was taped.

This was a great alternative to the expensive and cramped hotels in Santa Cruz. It's just 10 minutes outside of town on highway 17 and is spacious, clean and has a pool. They were managing the Covid crisis safely as well.

The staff was super friendly and accommodating. I live in Santa Cruz and needed a little staycation. I would most definitely stay again! Room was spacious and Hilton beds are always the best.

Loud construction right outside of our window the entire time we stayed. Pool- first time we went to use, another guest’s large dog was swimming in it, tv/cable box not working and had to be switched out.

The whole property smelled of cigarettes and it’s supposed to be non smoking property. Our first room the smell was awful and the whole hallway reeked. The second room was better but honestly we could still smell it. The hot tub and pool were nice. Bed was comfortable. Can’t remember wver staying in a hotel where smoking was such an issue. Disappointed.

Room service, the friendly and attentive staff and how clean the hotel was.

The pool area was incredible, fun and well taken care of. Everything else was simply ok. Nothing special. Check in take a long time, with no especial interest to us or our needs. The view of the parking lot from our room did not add to the overall experience. Dining was mediocre at best and a bit expensive for the quality. Good bar staff. Overall this one of the most average of any hotel I have spent time at. Would I return? No.

Very nice property close to parks and beach. We enjoyed our stay.

I had to pay for breakfast when other hotels offer free breakfast

I was charged an extra 100$ for idk what. Will be asking for a refund.

Quaint hotel with great amenties. Nice lobby! Katie the new waitress was very accomodating.

Enjoyed to room, very cozy, comfortable beds. TV and wifi worked great. Wish breakfast was included though. Paying as much as I did for 1 night breakfast in the morning should have been included
