This hotel is located in Santa Cruz. A very nice hotel and the staff are great. The place is full but noise level was a minimal. Free parking on site. I will definitely stay there again. There is a Denny next door.

I'm not sure - but I don't recommend this hotel. It's super noise, lots of homeless hang around outside at night and the denny's next door has the loudest parking lot!
