"Passing through"
The room exceeded expectations and was very clean. I was disappointed at the amount of noise and activity in the courtyard and room above us on the 3rd floor. The noise was excessive and lasted until 5:30am on a Tuesday. Staff is not available at night.

"Amazing & strategically located establishment!"
Misses and I stayed over memorial day weekend, we had 0 complaints other than the coffee was bad in their breakfast.( Considering all things not a big deal). We stayed in the side house, very clean, spacious, & easily accessible. On site parking was amazing. Didn't move the car for 3 days. 10 min walk to downtown, 5 min walk to the boardwalk. We will definitely be staying here from now on whenever we visit Santa Cruz. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing, 0 worry weekend. I can't say enough nice things about all the staff who were very polite, friendly and accommodating whenever possible. Worth the money for parking, location, privacy, & comfort. 10 out of 10 👍.

"Nostalgic must do for every Santa Cruz lover."
Being a lifetime veteran of the Santa Cruz scene, I have stayed at most hotels there. However, this house built in 1911 is part of the historic fabric of Santa Cruz. Your Santa Cruz existence will not be complete without a stay in this historic residence. Thank you Darlings, for preserving the natural beauty of this Coastal gem.

"Unique hotel in central location"
Basically, this is a completely redone Holiday Inn-like compound. Pool is very nice and food served quite good. Rooms are a little claustrophobic as you have to keep curtains closed due to rooms opening to the outside. Good central location to beaches and downtown Santa Cruz. Area it is in is a bit sketchy. Overall, though, it was a nice place.

"beautiful grounds"
Requested a quiet room, it was perfect. Talking out on balcony one night, 10:30pm, security was called, told us to be quiet! Then next night LOUD music at 5am next door. The pool area is wonderful and the on site restaurant has good food. They will bring food/drinks out to you poolside. The bed and pillows were comfy. Close to Capitola and SC. A beach is about a mile or 2 away, $10 to park.

"Newer hotel in Santa Cruz"
Newer hotel away from the tourist area but super close and easy access to UCSC campus. Everything was fine except rooms were not ready when we arrived at 5:30PM. Desk clerk had to physically go check to make sure our room was available which we really appreciated the extra effort. Hotel, lobby, eating area and rooms were all fine. Breakfast was your typical instant eggs, weird sausage and bacon, waffles, etc. But the coffee was great! Parking is plentiful and the staff was pleasant
