      Location was close to the bay. Price was low.

      Location was noisy. It was very close to a major road. We heard what sounded like gun shots, or at a minimum, explosions. Sheets didn't stay on the mattress... These at least could be fitted or larger. It took about 10 minutes for the hot water to become hot.

    • Couple

      I liked that it was centrally located from mostly everything ... it was right down the street from the boardwalk

      It was dirty, it was a tweaker motel, a hotel party was going on ne3xt door and it was quite uncomfortable, and to make matters worse there was a police investigation for bloody footprints leading to the back of the motel

    • Group of friends

      The location was convenient for us. Staff seemed pleasant. If we weren't in such a rush, I would have been comfortable bringing some of my complaints to their attention.

      The bed sheets had definitely not been changed. Not cool. I don't mind dingy and old as long as my bedding is clean. Parking was quite tight and took patience to shuffle cars around to get in and out.

    • Group of friends

      Great location & view of the river. Next to river walk. Close to boardwalk and wharf. Firm mattress. Friendly staff. Outside is classic mid-century modern.

      Tiny rooms. Thin pillows. No coffeemakers or blow driers. Rooms could use some bright cheerful 50's colors.

    • Older travelers

      It is really close to the boardwalk and was much quieter than I would have expected.

      The beds are really hard and it would be nice if there were extra pillows.

      The location is excellent! Less than 2 blocks from Boardwalk. Boardwalk parking is expensive. Bare bone annemities. Room was clean but a little smelly, need to keep window open to air out. But Santa Cruz is a seedy town, not meant for a family outing. Try Monterey or Carmel.

      Motel is at the corners of 2 very busy streets, so traffic & noise could be heard from room; however, we were exhausted from day in the sun, we had no problem falling asleep.

      It was close to the boardwalk.

      While it was clean, it could use an update.

    • Couple

      Good location and parking facilities

      Not sure if the linnen had been washed due too hair being found in the bed and various other places. Slightly cramped space for a couple of suitcases.

    • Family with children
      5.4

      The location is walking distance from Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk other than that was not very impressed. Price was good for location

      The pool was completly drained, parking was tight, a/c was noisy, room was cramped & not up to date. Looked like early 80's styling.

    • Family with children
      7.8

      The room was clean and it was close to the Boardwalk

      The beds weren't super comfortable, and it was a very noisy location

    • Family with children
      4.6

      Not Much

      The pool was empty, there was not even a clock int he room. The place REALLY needs some upgrades and something needs to be done to improve the parking! The price was too high for what you get....

      Close to beach

      Location

      It smelled bad and wasnt super clean

    • Family with children
      6.2

      No frills, no nonsense, a decent and cheap place to stay. A/C works great.

      Kind of dirty - walls, doors, and headboards could use a simple soap & water washing. But toilets & tubs were clean, beds were clean and comfortable.

    • Couple

      Location was fantastic, room was clean, price was right. All around just what I was looking for.

      The pool was dry.
