One night in Santa Cruz

Posted May 16, 2015
Pros: Perfect departure from the chain model, with better food and great rooms.
Great hotel experience in a revitalized 1970's motor lodge. Outdoor pool and bar was a great place to unwind after a day of work. Room was spacious, well laid out, great bathroom setup and effective lighting.

Ok but over priced

Posted Apr 22, 2015
The room was clean and comfortable, but for the price I expected more. The hotel was modern and fresh but cramped rooms. The closet was so small we could barely fit our luggage in it. The desk in the room was large but not very useful. We ordered room service Which was also very pricey. A stake and roasted chicken for $80 although it was tasty we didn't feel it was worth it. I've paid less for better too service stakes elsewhere. Other problem is the food came in on trays and there wasn't anywhere in the room to eat it. We shared the desk one of us standing the other sitting as we didn't want to eat on our bed. Quite awkward for pricy room service. Should have at the very least been served on a roll in table.

Great pool!

The hotel has a great salt water pool and hot tub. The kids loved it. You cannot walk to the boardwalk from the hotel but there us a shuttle.

Hotel is okay!

Rooms are way too small, not what was shown in the pictures! Wanted a bigger room, charged me extra.

The hotel was more than i expected. It was clean and stylish. The staff were friendly. It was easy to reserve and check in/check out. This will be my new hotel to stay when I visit the area.

Nice, but, over priced.

Posted Apr 11, 2015
Nice property; older building that has been renovated. Staff is friendly and attentive. Lobby and restaurant are extremely noisy. Good amount of square footage in room. Barn door separates bathroom from bedroom; stylish, but, does not allow for privacy. Vanity, toilet, shower and closet are all located behind barn door. Not a fan of this layout. Nice, but, cost is double what it should be. IMHO...

Hard Beds

Posted Apr 7, 2015
Our stay was fine but the beds were so hard, my back hurt badly. Small room, only one robe for 4 to share. And I could here people outside when trying to sleep, no air conditioner, so had to crack the door at night to cool off.the pool and hot tub were awesome.nice staff. Close to everything.

Perfect Place

Safe location, walking distance to most of everything like downtown, theaters, shopping centers and train station I also liked that the beach was just a 5min car drive!

Aside from room service taking a while, the hotel was excellent! Shuttle service is great! Great staff, room and facilities.
