Parking

Posted Oct 19, 2014
The hotel is pretty good but the parking is very limited. You will have to pay ten bucks for parking and there will be a lot of people who will be parked there with no proof of purchase (parking pass).

charged us for parking and there was no spot

Pros: room was nice
Cons: provide adequate free parking and don't say "pet friendly" when they charge so much
Exorbitant charge for our 2 small dogs (total weight of the 2 put together < 30 # ) and they charged us $50- Not exactly pet friendly. We will never stay here again, and we will advise friends and family not to do so as well.

The place is a bit run down, but it's inexpensive, pet-friendly and close to the boardwalk and other attractions.

Would NOT recommend!

Posted Sep 19, 2014
Pros: Very little. The linens were ok, it was nice to have a mini-fridge in the room... the location was close to the boardwalk.
Cons: Reliable hotel staff that knows where is safe to park, cleaner floors & drawers, updated electrical outlets, a rack in the shower, a fan in the bath.
Location: Location is within 5 min drive to the boardwalk. Plenty of places to shop and eat by the beach.
The bathroom is tiny. The shower is so tight that there is a little tray for a bar of soap and not any room for anything else. The electrical outlets are so out-dated that I could not charge my phone without the charger falling out of the outlet repeatedly. The bathroom outlet was the only one that could hold it. The floors are hardwood not well-cleaned - they were sticky and grimy. The pool is very, very small - definitely an optical illusion the way it is photographed. The breakfast area is the size of a walk-in closet - with nowhere to sit. The food offered is also sub-par. Upon arriving, the lot was completely full and it was close to midnight. Being unfamiliar with the area, the desk clerk told me I could park anywhere on the street, so I did. I showed him which rental car was mine and he said "you're fine". I wasn't, I got a ticket. The hotel was unwilling to cover the ticket, and when I asked for a corporate office number, I was told "I will send them your information and they will have to contact you." I never received a phone call. The lot stayed full every night during my stay. The only positives: the linens were decent and the location is close to the boardwalk, but I'd stay anywhere else but here on my next visit.

Nice place to crash close to the boardwalk.

Posted Sep 6, 2014
Pros: Friendly staff. Location in relation to points of interest.
Location: Just steps away from the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, Santa Cruz Municipal Wharf, Santa Cruz Big Trees & Pacific excursion railway & many restaurants.
Located an easy walking distance from the boardwalk. The staff was extremely courteous and the rooms were clean. Parking might be a concern, as we found our vehicle "parked in" around 10 p.m., and were not sure if the car blocking ours belonged to a hotel guest or not. The bed was very comfortable and the fridge in the room was a plus.

Close to Venice Beach...without staying there.

Wonderful staff, beautiful little Mother's Beach with the rest of the marina behind it made for a beautiful view. Yeah, it was a great way to start our vacation road trip.
