2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Expected much more for the price and the location not so close to the beach

No air conditioning. Poor continental breakfast would not go back

Good price overall (better for quality). Pretty setting on golf course, nice room décore, friendly efficient, accomodating staff. Good location. Right off freeway but set back and quiet. 5 min to Santa Cruz. Nice bar and lobby with fire place. Wonderful. Just what we were looking for.

Nice room and in a great location! Staff was great!

Located about a mile from the edge ofbtown, right next to a gol course, this motel offered a good, clean romm for a resonable price..

Next to a golf course. Breakfast included. Clean and quiet. About 5 min to Santa Cruz.

This hotel was probably great few years ago. Now, the facilities sit unused (nice looking bar and restaurant, closed), rooms are shabby and feel old. Matresses in room were worn and broken down. no microwave, no table or anywhere to sit. Big beautiful pool and deck; no way to get to it! Nice grounds and great location, too bad rooms don't measure up.

The rooms are small but kind of cute. The furnace takes forever to heat up the room, & as someone else mentioned the beds are in fact covered in plastic.

It was a little difficult finding this place but when we did, it was a nice surprise. Very close to the freeway and nice, comfy beds!

The beds were comfortable and sheets were amazing. Egyptian cotton quality! Rooms did not have microwave nor did the continental breakfast. They must be cutting down on electricity? Very disappointed in the breakfast,ridiculous for such a comfy ambiance. I will stay again, if they update carpets and add to their breakfast.

Medicore room. Door was very light and lots of outside noise and drafts. Could hear the ice machine, soda machine, and maid's closet outside throughout the day and evening. Room was bland and boring with outdated artwork and very loud fans and heating.

Beautiful site and grounds ... simple continental breakfast. Only complaint is that our mattress had a crinkley plastic pad cover. After it warmed up it was quite but that reminded me of being a kid. Not accustomed to such in a nice hotel.

We had a great time here and even opted to stay an extra night

have stayed here twice in the past 3 months and enjoyed both visits. rooms are charming and its very peaceful. staff is freindly and helpful. good place for either romantic getaway or family

My family reserved three different rooms at this hotel. We all found the rooms to be nice and the beds very comfortable. It was a great value for the price. I would definitely stay here again. Everything was great!

This is one of the best places we love to stay. It's quiet and beautiful and the price isn't bad.

The location is great, there were plenty of pillows and that is about it. Access to the city was great, but so close to the freeway meant noise. The room was older and lacking a desk. Free Internet but no place to setup your laptop. It was an over-priced motel six with more pillows.

Pretty lousy room , placed at the very back of the hotel right next to the maintenance area. trash and debris next to the room, they stated only two available rooms the motel was virtually empty , They must have meant the two rooms they had held for [...]customers, [...], Room and amenities literally sucked, Even the restaurant was not open for breakfast, and dinner barely pallatable.

This hotel was a great value. The room was nicely done, more so than you would have expected for the price. It had a nice lounge and a really big pool. Location was good and there were no other hotels around it. The grounds had a gardenesque appearance. Our room was very clean and the shower was very big, easily would have fit three people in there! Romantic!

We were visiting colleges, and this was an overnight stop. It was good for that. Although if the weather was warmer, their back gardens and pool I would have for sure enjoyed. The room was clean and quite, the only problem we had was the sliding bathroom door would not stay hinged and we could not get it to close.
