Located in Westside Santa Cruz, this hotel is within a 5-minute walk of Santa Cruz Wharf, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, and Main Beach. Monterey Bay and Santa Cruz Surfing Museum are also within 1 mi (2 km).
The room was small and the bathroom (though renovated) needed a tad of touchup work along the baseboards BUT it was very convenient to the beach, boardwalk and amusement park. No need to use a car at all unless going out to a special restaurant for dinner. The only suggestions I would have for the very friendly staff is to let folks know upon check-in that because of COVID there currently is no continental breakfast served nor is there daily room service.
This property has a great location near Steamers Lane. It is an old property that has been refurbished. I found the shower controls a little diffficult to learn. There is one small window and a sliding door. The window and door need to be open to receive ventalation. The wifi was inconsistent, good in the evening then poor in the morning. The good is that it is the lowest price very near the ocean and the tourist area of Santa Cruz.
When i booked the room it said pay for first night now. Pay the rest at the hotel. So I get a call from the property first thing friday morning telling me that they were trying to charge my cc for the remainder of the stay. Which was not supposed to happen. Shoot. I already paid for the first night and cant check in until 4pm. And it is 11am and they are trying to charge me for the room already. So finally we get that straightened out. We get to the property and check in. And they dont have enough parking spaces for the amount of rooms that they have. So we end up having to park at another property next door. Our room was on the first floor. There are two levels to this property. The building is so poorly built that you can hear every step by every person walking up the stairs and in the room above us. It was miserable. So on our second night the noise was so bad that I had to complain. The manager went upstairs and spoke to the people above us. But it didnt help. They were so loud we could hardly sleep all three nights. Our toilet paper holder fell off while we were using the room. The bathroom door knob is broken and you have to mess around with it to get out of the bathroom. And then they tell us they ran out of pillow cases. So we didnt have pillow cases on half of our pillows the whole time we were there. When I was checking out I mentioned all these things to the gal working. She immediately charged the room above us a "excessive noise" charge. There is more!
I grew up in the Santa Cruz Mountains and surfed at Steamer Lane quite often. Seaway has been a place I have wanted to stay at for years. My daughter is headed off to College soon, so made a week reservation. Had a blast staying here. Quiet, secure, staff is awesome! Be back soon.
