My husband and I stayed at this Motel for one night at the start of our Pacific Highway drive. It is a little gem disguised as a super 8 motel... The room was perfectly clean, spacious with a huge comfortable bed. Our room had a fridge, coffee machine and flat screen TV, more than we had expected! The breakfast was...

Well, if you remember you are renting a motel room you will be very happy ... hotels in this area are very expensive, so yes you are paying a lot for a motel and it may be frustrating. As far as motels go it is very nice. Friendly owners, good breakfast (hot waffles were a nice surprise) and location very...

We stayed here during our road trip around california in August 2014 the owners were really lovely we were put in a room upstairs but when I asked if we could be moved to one nearer the pool if that was possible we were moved which was really good of them. The room was really clean and for the area...

Stayed here for 1 night. Clean standard motel room. The Wi-Fi didn't work. No worries, since we were only there for the one night and I had smartphone data access. The woman behind the desk was really friendly and helpful. They offer a simple, but appreciated complimentary breakfast in the morning. Very good location in relation to the beach, boardwalk...

Finding a hotel in Santa Cruz is a challenge, especially one with free and AMPLE parking. The value in the Super 8 is absolutely the location (1 1/2 blocks from the Boardwalk) and being able to leave your car the minute you check-in until the day you leave. We stayed here for a weekend in the middle of peak season....

This hotel is overpriced, I do not recommend staying here for the $388/night (with taxes), that I paid. Location - 3 stars. Rooms - 2 stars. Swimming pool - 2 stars. Pricing - 1 star. Overall - 2 stars at most.

You know there must be a really bad selection of hotels in Santa Cruz, when the Super 8 comes up as one of the top 10 rated hotels. I am having a hard time understanding the excellent reviews. Hey, I know we weren't staying at the Hilton but for a going rate of $305 a weekend night, ones expectations naturally...
