"Honeymoon bliss"
We stayed in the Kyoto room. It was amazing. The staff was accommodating. It was the highlight of our honeymoon. Great experience. I almost don't want to say too much positive so that we'll have no trouble booking when we return. Shhh. Keep it quiet. Don't let them become too popular, OK?

"Sweet place, great pool & outdoor area"
We'll definitely head back to Hotel Paradox...a great place to explore Santa Cruz. Walking distance from downtown, quick shuttle ride to the boardwalk and beach. The outdoor area with pool, hot tub, bar and food was wonderful, unexpectedly spent 6 hours here 'cause the kids were having a blast. Good for kids, Sunday scene may be a bit 'clubby' for family vibe.

"I'd stay here again"
Great location. Great staff. Decent restaurants within walking distance. Large beach nearby with walking/running path to exercise on. Quiet neighborhood. Great pool! Some features of the hotel could have been better (e.g. you could see some wear on things, but I knew it wasn't a Ritz when I booked it), but it had some good surprises (e.g. exterior, lobby, bedding, all looks 3 star). Fantastic location. You'll love the place if you understand it's a three star place.

It was nice. Staff very nice.everything was clean. Breakfeast was good there. Enjoyed the waffle maker. The only thing was it was hard to use the spa cause it was always busy. But other than that it was very good. Good location.

"Very nice hotel and staff."
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.

"Great hotel near the boardwalk."
It had a very homey feel to it. I felt so relaxed there. Everything was in great condition. It was very clean. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The surrounding area was nice as well. I will definitely be staying at this hotel again.

"HAPPY ABOUT THE WHOLE THING"
Across the street from the beach and boardwalk. Very near the wharf. Clean and comfy. Quiet even during spring break. Only suggestion, families with children should be on ground floor, children running overhead can be disturbing. Loved this place would be happy to return and recommend to others. My friends who live locally are going to do the same for friends and family who visit. Great value and location, location, location.
