"Overlooking the main Beach"
This hotel has plusses and minuses. It is a Santa Cruz hotel so you have to expect it to be a bit below normal standards for mainstay hotels in normal cities. It is fairly well kept but some things such as the carpet in the room was a little raggedy. Lots of stairs so if you have mobility problems ask for a lower level room. Very good Thai food in the restaurant & bar. The bar has a great little balcony that looks out over Beach Street and the Main Beach. Great for people watching. If you are a frequent traveler you might complain but overall this is a pleasant place to stay in Santa Cruz!

"Beautiful Victorian B&B close to Wharf & Boardwalk"
Two night stay. Great views, convenient location. Tricky to find, but once you do, parking is easy in reserved free spots. Breakfast was a real full gourmet breakfast cooked by a skilled chef, not just a continental breakfast. It is Buffet style, not made to order, but delicious nevertheless.
