    Very comfy beds after a long day's travelWe didn't get to stay long. Just in and out while visiting UCSC for a day. But the room was nice and quiet, and the beds were top notch.

    Santa Cruz stayI thought the previous night stay at another hotel was tough. this one is even harder. It had a heated pool that was nice. The room was interesting to say the least. Worst part was the walls and door were so thin I could hear everything going on outside until well after midnight.

      Away from town dramaI’ve been to Santa Cruz many times. I didn’t want to stay off main strip. To much bad element in town area. This hotel is perfect distance away from town. Great place for kids to explore. Could use updated grounds work, but buildings were nice modern and clean.

      Still very good, not at level had been in the pastWe've been coming here for about 4 years. While still a great hotel, definitely not at the stellar level where it once had been. The pool area was a bit dirty, and didn't seem to be cleaned at all during the 3 days we were there other than glasses and dishes. The staff was friendly, yet lacked the ...

      It’s cute but...The unit #7 is a good view. It’s also a good location. This good location also gets busy. It’s right by the boardwalk and main strip, directly across from beach. It is outdated. I didn’t feel confident in cleanliness and ultimately hung around until I refreshed, then I drove home. I with all the ...

Mini fridge was good size, had hard wood floors, and close to 7-11 in case you need anything. Only complaint, for lack of better word, is the distance to the beach. It was a little further than I expected...so ...
