My family just needs a place to stay, and it turns out, this hotel is more than that. I love our double queen room, it is near to Boardwalk and price is affordable. My two kids loved the room and disney channel! My husband loved the free wifi. Our stay was really comfortable.

Looking for an affordable overnight, with Walking distance to beach and dining a priority, this came out top of the search list. Sure, it's probably a bit overpriced at the weekends. It is a solid Super 8 no more no less. But its all about the location. Friendly checkin also helps. As do the clean and comfortable rooms that feel like they've had an update in the last few years.

We were able to check in early and drop off our car. A real bonus in Santa Cruz at the weekends. And also leave it for an extra hour while we grabbed breakfast on Sunday.

The breakfast in the lobby is fine if you just want to grab a fill up and go. Cereals, toast, English muffins, juice, coffee, etc.

While I would normally go a star or two up the scale, this was great for the price. Would return.

The managers are so friendly and likeable! Suni took plenty of time to advise me on good walks, give directions, and recommend places to go. It was great. The room was clean and large enough for the 3 of us, and painted a pretty yellow. Pretty bedspreads and curtains, too.

The room smelled clean. The office smelled clean. No curry, no incense, or any other odd smell. Simply clean. It was two small blocks walk to the main entrance to the boardwalk. Very close and very easy. I even have a handicapped child that cannot handle long walks and this was perfect. From the sidewalk by the office the boardwalk can be seen. The breakfast was nothing special, but it kept kids from starving; simple toast, cereal, oatmeal and juice. The office staff were awesome. The lady in the morning couldn't have been nicer. We wanted to leave the boardwalk at about 12:30 on our last night. The let me leave our car there rather than making us leave and pay 20 bucks to park at the boardwalk. One of my children had a cough and she was appropriately concerned that the food not get contaminated. I was careless letting my child go there and feel very happy that this was monitored. The room was on the smaller side, but definitely adequate. The room had a small fridge, microwave, coffee pot, and hair dryer. The normal variety of soaps and shampoos available. It is not five star as compared to a a Ritz Carlton, but a five star for what a family needs. Oh, they had fluffy pillows and flatter ones. This is important to me since I need the flatter ones and my guy likes the fluffy ones. Perfect for us. It was a bit windy for the pool, but the pool seemed very adequate.

Room Tip: I think if the weather had been appropriate I could have stayed in my room with the door open on the...

Stayed here 3 nights. The owners are super friendly and very helpful. Rooms are very clean and have everything you need. Short walk to boardwalk or downtown. If I return will stay here again without hesitation.
