It's like having your own beach.

Posted Aug 21, 2014
Pros: The location right on the beach. The view from my room was beautiful.
Cons: More valets, improved parking. There were times you could not even pull into the hotel because of vacated cars of people waiting to check in.
Location: Beach, boardwalk, amusement park all within a block. The downtown shopping area has a LOT of nice shops and is only a short walk away.
The Hotel is located on a great spot. Beautiful views from all the rooms. I arrived about an our earlier than check-in time and was told that the room was not ready. I then proceeded to wait an additional hour before my room was ready. They told me they would call, but after not receiving a call, I went to the desk and they surprisingly said my room was ready. The parking situation is abhorable. Not enough room for all incoming guests to park for check-in. They seemed to need more bell hops/valets. Very busy all the time. Maybe they should consider moving the check-in area to the circle near the restaurant.

Great place, great hotel

Pros: Staff and location
Best location in Santa Cruz. Santa Cruz more exciting than Monterrey and Carmel. Can't recommend enough. Great beach, swimming, restaurants, beer, laid back, try it.

Wonderful staff, clean hotel

Posted Aug 9, 2014
Pros: Great suite with plenty of space. Very nice balcony view
Location: Didn't care much for amusement park area and strip-just not my style, but loved cliff walk and watching surfers.
Staff very friendly and pleasant the moment we arrived. Jennifer at the desk was so helpful and gave us great hotel information and tips about hotel and area.

Great Staff but not enough of them.

Posted Jul 24, 2014
Pros: Great location, friendly staff.
Cons: More staff to handle the number of guests.
We arrived at 3:30pm room not ready. We were told they would call us when ready and it would be ready at 4:00 pm. At 4:15 no call and we went back to office. Room still not ready and they said it would be 2 hours. They found us another room. Valet was busy and there were limited number of valet's. All staff were pleasant but they could not accommodate all of the people checking in or checking out. Valet informed us that most of the staff had their hours recently cut.
