The hotel had a nice pool and was only a 20 minute walk to the Boardwalk. The wifi didn't work in our room and the beds weren't very comfortable.

Small room - cheap free breakfast - old loud AC with no digital temperature control. More like a motel than hotel. Poor internet. My 3G is even better. However, great friendly service front desk guy - if I decided to come back only because of their management hired a great employee that makes me feel welcome.

The toilet seat cover fell off. The whole room overall was not clean! The neighbor we had was questionable too! For the price of $269 I better...

I don't have any complaints, other than for things the hotel can't help, like smokers hanging out in the courtyard so that their stinky smoke comes in my room, upstairs, if I wanted to leave my door open for Santa Cruz's fresh air. They'd have to ban smoking everywhere on the premises to get rid of that problem, and I...

We recently staid overnight at this establishment and were pleased with our stay. The over all impression of this motel is one of cleanliness. The rooms have modern decore, nice linen and towels. The rooms are good size and there was minimal outside noise. The front desk staff were very helpful and answered all our questions about the area and...
