We booked the 3 bedroom 2bathroom for 3 adults 4 kids through booking.com but when we got there we got a room and a "bed" in the living with 1 bathroom and showed the staff what we've reserved but was told that the room we booked is occupied. The bathroom is small. The pool is disgusting! It shows that it...

Staff was great and accomodated our extra vehicle. Rooms are very nice with a fireplace and full kitchen. We had a room that had no view and didn't have it's own courtyard/patio as some do so if you want either of those things, you need to inquire ahead of time. The whirlpool bathtub is great but use caution if you...

I found a deal on booking.com. Room number was not specific so I called hotel directly. Marian spent about 10 friendly minutes answering all my questions including what room number I was getting so I could check it out online. She said the deal was a great one, one she could not beat herself! I have a dog and booking.com...

This is a great place for a family looking to do a few days in Santa Cruz and minimize the driving. Easy access to both the beach and the boardwalk is a huge plus. The rooms were everything we needed for a family of 4 and provided plenty of living space. Don't count on the breakfast in the morning being...

This is a very beach-themed hotel. Not glamorous or fancy, just entirely adorable! Our small room had a theme on the bedspread and curtains of woodies( old station wagons used to haul surfboards), beach sand and waves and gave the right vibe for Santa Cruz. The bathroom had a modern treatment of wonderful gray tile that extended from the floor...

the location of this hotel is its best asset. Right above he beach with a quick walk your on it. The rooms are spacious and light. Well furnished and for a few dollars more you get sea views. Breakfast is included, it's a light continental style but enough to start the day. The managers/owner were very friendly. The pool was...

Short and sweet. We love this place. We originally stumbled upon it looking for parking near the wharf and decided to spend the night there. They showed us the greatest hospitality ever and we've been loyal since. It's only got about 15 rooms but it's so quaint and comforting. Each room has a different theme and they have the best...

“larger rooms with kitchenettes, would have liked to have the extra room for the two of us. We stayed in a single with a king bed.”
  • Kind of hard to take a shower in this tub. Fun to have the fireplace in the bathroom.
  • This was a small single room with a King bed. Nice decor! Clean!
