Very nice hotel and staff.

Posted Jul 3, 2014
Pros: We liked how the room was actually 2 rooms. King beds were comfy. One bedroom had cathedral ceilings. Each had a t.v. Staff was very friendly.
Cons: It would be nice to have wall hangings/ decor to liven it up a bit but our main purpose was to see the beach and coast so it's no big deal.
Location: Kids loved the boardwalk rides. Plenty of shopping. The pier had a lot to offer (gotta try the clam chowder). Beach was clean and the water cold!
We were able to walk to the pier, boardwalk and beach from the location of the hotel. We rented bikes right from the front office and rode a lovely scenic ride along the coast. There was a pool and 2 jacuzzis to keep the kids entertained. Breakfast every morning had a nice selection to choose from. The room was equipped with microwave, coffee maker, 2 blowdryers and small refrigerator (be careful of the settings, ours got so cold if froze our fruits and salads!) Great place for a family. Would definitely go back.

Decent place to stay, especially for the price

Posted Jun 27, 2014
Pros: The renovated rooms were nice.
Cons: The non-renovated rooms needed a lot of work. Good thing they're renovating!
Location: Walking distance to the beach and boardwalk, walking distance downtown, quick bus ride to UCSC.
The hotel is in the middle of a renovation. I got two rooms, one that was renovated, and one that was not. The renovated side was great, clean, king size bed, dual shower heads, etc. The non-renovated side was not so great. Much like a motel 6. So, if you book this place, be sure to get a room that has been renovated. The staff was pretty decent. The location was awesome, walking distance to the beach, downtown, and an easy drive to UCSC.

Double Shower Heads

Posted Jun 8, 2014
We really loved our stay. The staff was friendly. Our room was comfortable. I wasn't even expecting the microwave and refrigerator but that was a definite PLUS. The room was so nice. Double shower heads, crown molding, free internet, free parking, free continental breakfast, heated pool. It was everything we needed. I highly recommend it.
