Spacious and clean room, friendly staff. Small pool no hot tub

Not bad, it’s not that good what I usually see in holiday inn

It is a good, easy access and safe area. Best affordable hotel in the area worth every penny

Large room and well-equipped. Staff needs to smile more

Clean and good location the staff was friendly and helpful

Very nice stay...i was expecting a room with two queen beds but was given a king with pull out coach..did not say anything to staff and made it work for us. We enjoyed the pool.

This hotel is nowhere near the boardwalk/ pier like it advertised. Well, it is in Santa Cruz. Staff definitely didn’t make me want to stay again.

We had an excellent overnight stay with no issues

Hotel was nice enough, but was not expecting to pay $7.00/night for parking. This is Santa Cruz not San Francisco.

Staff was responsive, room was clean and presentable but cookie-cutter, breakfast was decently efficient

The hotel was conveniently located right off the freeway. The room was clean and beds were comfortable. Only surprise was the parking fee but $7 is nothing in comparison to what you would find up farther in San Francisco. Breakfast could have been better with a little more variety, but you get what you pay for. The staff at the desk when we checked in could use a little more personality, but we weren't there for him. We were there for the room.

Very friendly staff and clean comfortable rooms. Breakfast was also good

The room was very comfortable and the only negative about it is the parking lot. When driving out of the parking lot, which is below the hotel one has to be careful when driving a midsize car or smaller, for the car are kind of low when the incline ends and levels out. The bottom of your car is going to hit, especially if your carrying passengers in the back seat or other heavy stuff in the trunk. Aside from that, place is nice!
