Nice room, very modern. Great pool and outdoor areas.

Great place as always

It’s location was perfect! We were in walking distance to Santa Cruz diner, my favorite breakfast place.

Paradox is really nice the staff is friendly. My family enjoyed out stay.

Boutique hotel

Rooms are very very small. No coffee maker. The bathroom is also small. I paid a lot of $$$$ but I did not see anything to justify the $$$. The pool is OK.

Very well kept and friendly staff, quiet so slept well

Extremely attentive staff. Very friendly and accommodating. Great hot tub. 5 minute walk to everything downtown

It had a “high-end motel” vibe that I had never experienced before. Trendy, but very approachable.

Pet friendly facility with a $50 surcharge. Very nice ambiance and friendly staff.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY! We will definitely go back again!

Everything is good but hotel does show its age regardless of extensive renovation the owner/company did. Would have been better if they had build it from scratch.

The clerk said he would call/text me when my room was ready—-I never heard from him. I had to find things to do to keep busy for a few hours, then finally I just called, and a different clerk said, yeah..your rooms been ready. So I missed out on a good chunk of my stay. By the time I checked in, it,was too cold for the pool. Disappointed in such a nice hotel.

Room not ready at check-in and only made available after repeated pestering by the staff who were at best indifferent. Pool area was nice.
