        • Family with children
          7.4

          great pool and hottub. Everything was clean and neat. Staff was friendly and professional.

          Could be kept up a bit better, but would probably be more expensive if it were. I'm happier with low rates than fresh paint. Breakfast was a diabetic's nightmare (all simple carbs- juice, bagels, pastries, waffles, sugary cereal--there was a container for cornflakes , but it was filled with frosted flakes).

        • Family with children
          7.0

          The general manager was accomodating & friendly. He even made waffles for some of his guest because there was a long line & wait one of the morning we had breakfast. It was pleasant & would stay there again in the future if we had to bring our dog, but would go to a closer location to the Boardwalk if we did not bring our dog.

        • Family with children

          I did not like anything about the hotel. The area was too far away from the actual beach but it charged as if it was on the beach.

          Everything: location, building, constant running water that was always audible, and not worth the price. It should have been a $60 dollar room, not a $130.

        • Couple
          7.8

          The location was great due to the fact that we ran the Wharf-to-Wharf race. We could walk to the Starting Line.

          The front desk girl was soooooo confusing. She kept saying, "it's hard to explain." The language barrier was a little too much. There were no cots available either. Only 2 for that many rooms?

        • Couple
          6.6

          Friendly and helpful staff. Continentale breakfast fair. Adequate selection, nothing extraordinary. Watchout for sand in your bedsheets!

          Watchout for sand in your bedsheets! If you stay here, the surrounding area is residential and you will hear the street activity.

          7.8

          Was very nice, within walking distance to the beaches and boardwalk. Only complaint: when we got there the room with the queen bed was not ready yet. insteacd of asking us if we mind a different room with 2 queens beds in the 3rd floor. They just give us that room withour saying anything

          Only complaint: when we got there the room with the queen bed was not ready yet. insteas of asking us if we mind a different room with 2 queens beds in the 3rd floor. They just give us that room withou saying anything. When we got to the room. we questioned why to beds, when we asked that when they explained.

          Friendly staff, good location, continental breakfast, safe location.

        • Single
          10.0

          The manager was very friendly and all the staff were extremely good - efficient, friendly and genuine. Housekeeping were excellent, the entire place was very well maintained. Breakfast was my favourite of all my travels - it included a waffle machine to make hot waffles, yum! I didn't have time to avail of the pool but it looked great. I really enjoyed my stay here and would definitely return.

        • Older travelers
          4.2

          We have been to Santa Cruz many time. It was a normal getaway for a couple days.

          I did not make reservation for a handicap room!!!! We were put in a handicap room. That is not what I made reservations for!!!

        • Older travelers
          4.2

          Convenience of location

          A generally untidy and dirty environment. Lack of coat hangers in the room. The so-called breakfast room was a disgrace and we refused to eat there. The choice of food for breakfast was appalling - we ate only a banana. One kindly cleaning woman did find extra coat hangers for us after the front desk said that there weren't any.

        • Couple
          9.2

          For the price, we had a nice comfortable stay with a nice range of amenities.

          Some parts of the hotel could use a bit of updating such as the elevator.

        • Couple
          10.0

          I liked the location of the hotel and the quality for the price. It was within walking/driving distance of great places to eat and local attractions

          I didn't like that the elevator door would sometimes get stuck and not open on the ground floor.

        • Family with children
          5.8

          the best thing is location, then pet friendly however costs an extra $15.00 per night

          beds are very uncomfortable, no one got a good nights sleep, very simple and basic. No ice machines were working.

        • Couple
          5.0

          decent for amount paid. nice shabby sheik, decent deco. would stay there again due to price.

          they dont tell u when u book that they r going to put a $150 hold on ur account for security deposit. only one plug in the room to charge phone computers ect. and the only entrance to ur room would be threw the front desk entrance. Not in a great neighborhood huge signs in parking lot say not responsible for theft

        • Couple
          8.2

          The staff were friendly and polite. The room carried no alarming odors and appeared to be clean. The lobby also seem well-maintained. There were plenty of towels and soap. The breakfast offered a reasonable selection of bagels, pastries, cereal, fruit, and beverages. The room had a reasonable number of locks. - I wasn't concerned that I would be killed in the night. For the location and the cleanliness, the price seemed to be fair.

          The pay-per-view channel was outdated by almost two years, but there was an ample array of other tv channels and it did not darken our experience overall. My personal preference disagrees with the bedding, but it seems standard for many hotels.
