      Honestly not much of anything.

      It was a rip off. Upon check in we were told they were in the process of renovating. Which is much needed!

      The location to the boardwalk

      Dirty, and they are remodleing during early AM and into late PM. the bathroom sink was stinky

      Is this place a homeless drug addict shelter ??

      Cant beleive this hotel can be booked online what a shame

      Limited parking and narrow spaces, had to park on the street 2 nights

    • Couple

      It was just a short walk from the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.

      It is NOT worth $200 just to stay so close to the Boardwalk. The hotel was shady to say the least. The most convenient entrance to our room was through a back alley in which some sketchy looking people were hanging out. Our door jammed every time we closed it; only my husband was able to push it open. Don't even bother with the pool. It says that free wifi is available, but they do not give you the password. After I called the front office, I received the password, but the signal was too weak to connect. Not a place for young children.

      dog-friendly and smoking-friendly

      I guess it is a value for the money, but pretty sleezy. Santa Cruz is not particularly dog-friendly and it was challenging to find a place to run my dog. Our room had seen better days.

    • Couple

      Price was good, Room was a good size, Room was clean and tidy

    • Family with children

      The front desk person was so helpful and nice.

      A little run down but the staff was courteous and wonderful, and the place was in a prime location. I would stay here again and again.

    • Family with children
      7.0

      Cheap and you can't beat the location. Large room and decent amenities for the price, like mini-fridge, microwave, and satellite T.V. with lots of channels. You can't beat the location if you're a fan of the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Also nice that they're pet friendly, it can be tough in Santa Cruz with a pooch.

      There were plumbing issues -- inconsistent water pressure, extremely loud pipe, and the toilet flush made very odd noises. The electricity went off in the middle of the night, which obviously happened before as the clock had been reset when we checked in. The "breakfast" was your choice of cork flakes or cheerios, plus white sandwich bread for toast -- no past

      The room was clean.

      There were scary people staying in and around the motel. It did not feel like a safe area at all.

    • Older travelers

      i would never stay at this place again if it were free. it was roach infested as well as the microwave and tv didnt work had to be replaced. if i hadnt got sick soon as i got there i would have left the same day. besides i drove over 6hrs. my companion was so angry he had no words.

    • Family with children

      Nice location -- couldn't access the "free wi-fi" -- not too noisy -- good value for the money.

    • Group of friends

      Great location! Really close to boardwalk and beach!

      Kind of dirty and smelly. Typical beach town with loud drunk annoying teenagers outside keeping me up. I'm a teenager and it was not the greatest hotel ever. Spend the money if your looking for quality. If you plan on spending the majority of your trip out of the hotel then stay here.

    • Family with children
      4.0

      only the convenience of being so close to board walk

      Price was to high, room had a odor..uncomfortable bed, not enough towls, parking sucked, I have a brand new car , parking way to close.
