Santa Cruz stay

Posted Jul 17, 2015
Cons: May be some fresh paint and some updates on exterior.
Location: Boardwalk, beaches, boardwalk train.
Nice stay overall. Very nice staff. They allowed us to park on their property before check-in and after check-out times. It saved us parking fees at Boardwalk parking ($15 per day). Walking distance to Boarwalk. Great breakfast, better than we expected. Great experience for resonable price. Will recommend to friends and will return to the hotel again.

First, the staff checked us in to a dirty room. Then tried to charge us for a fold away bed. Breakfast was kind of gross. Overall the hotel was run down and staff was very unorganized.

Not bad

Posted Jul 15, 2015
Overall it was pretty good. The breakfast wasn't anything to write home about but it was free. The pool was nice the rooms where nice. We walked to the board walk and it was a 10 minute walk not bad.

Good location

Stayed here about 7 years ago and property has been well maintained. It is old, though, and is creaky. Can hear people above and through adjoining room door. Easy walk to Boardwalk, Ocean St.

Dirty room and hotel!!!!

Posted Jul 6, 2015
Pros: The hotel staff
Cons: Clean the rooms with BLEACH!
Our bathroom smelled like urine. Upon telling the front desk they sent up a house keeper while we were at the pool. When we came back the bathroom still smelled like urine. The lady at the front desk came up herself and cleaned the bathroom. She was very nice and the bathroom smelled much better. This hotel is very dirty. The pool is clean but the spa is nasty!!! The hotel is located in a bad part of town. Not a good place for a family.

One night stay for a show in town at local venue

Posted Jul 6, 2015
Pros: It was close to venue , "the blue lagoon"
Cons: room needs to be aired out and ,carpets need to be replaced. There is a distinct moldy smell from wet, humid carpet. It smelled terrible.
Location: beaches , boardwalk , downtown night life
I was not happy anout the smell of my room , room 118. The room seemed clean enough , but the smell of wet mold, was very strong. I took my shows off to relax and my feet touched the carpet and it was wet , like IT HAD just been shampooed or maybe the room wss flooded ,, all in all I didn't take off my shoes anymore and slept with door open .. when I went to take a shower , there were no towels in there. I had to go to the front desk and ask for them. I got back to the hotel around 2 am and there was absolutely no where to park. I had to park a mile away and walk to my hotel . it was ridiculous. The staff was very friendly .. but other than that .. iwould not stay here anymore ...

Nice place to rest.

Posted Jul 3, 2015
Pros: I like the reasonable rates and the central location.
Cons: I would say more staff perhaps, to help during busy checkin times.
Location: The location served my purpose well, since I came for an appointment downtown.
After a busy week at home, I enjoyed a restful, quiet, evening at the hotel. It was quite hot out and the air conditioner kept the room at a pleasant temperature. I was able to get a much needed rest there.
