If you are looking for the Hilton, this is not it. However, if you like 1) to be REALLY CLOSE to the beach/boardwalk 2) Free Wifi 3) onsite laundry facilities 4) very reasonable prices, then this place is for you. I can understand why some people would not be happy staying here, but I thought the place offered everything that I needed without breaking my wallet. Parking spaces are very small so vehicles end up being parked VERY CLOSE TOGETHER!! There are actually 2 sides to the motel and it appears that one side may be rented out to locals (??).

We had a 2 bedroom kitchenette that was a perfect set-up for our weeklong stay. There was a tv in the living area and the master bedroom which was really nice since we were traveling with our children. Our room did have new tile, but I would suggest that they either do away with the couch or buy a cover for it, (we actually covered it with our own blanket :>( There was plenty of hot water and our housekeeper was great!! It actually took only 5 minutes to step foot into the ocean from our room, (and we didn't walk fast at all). The location is perfect!

I would recommend this motel to anyone that is on a tight budget and looking for a place to stay close to the beach. If you are one of those people who have high expectations and are hard to please, you might want to go elsewhere. As the old saying goes, you get what you pay for.

Great location for family. Just a short block to boardwalk and beach.
Good remodel on bathrooms and new appliances. Did'nt think we would use frig. or microwave, but they sure came in handy.
Front desk was very helpful for information on good eating spots.
Hope to go back soon.

Room Tip: If your looking for a view, the second floor deck is awsome

We have stayed here for 20 years. It is a great location and the current owners were very nice to us. They even let us park are tent trailer there, without an extra charge. I know there are some bad reviews, i to was concerd after reading about bugs and dirty rooms.
Our suite was clean and bug free. We will be retuning this month. For the price, location and friendliness you can't go wrong.

My boyrfriend and I stayed her for a couple of months due to some bad/ hard times and they were great. They have cheap weekly rates with rooms that have kitchens. Its in a great location really close to the boardwalk and beaches. They also have a washer and dryer for you to use while staying here which came in handy. They are also pet friendly which was a HUGE plus for my boyfriend and I we have a dog and they only charged us a small pet fee (most places in santa cruz dont allow pets). All around a great decent priced room for daily weekly and monthly rentals. Definitely a decent place to stay for a short time or a long time!!

Room actually had 4' flourecsent shop light in sleeping area, stayed 2 nights, no housecleaning or fresh towels through stay, rug in front of bathroom was constantly damp, remote for tv didn't work, asked for assistance, got "instructions" that we could not understand, 2nd day came back from visiting family in hospital to find they rent out the parking lot for boardwalk goer's, had to park next door at a "construction area", pool is closed with a green tint to the water, pool was one of the reasons we booked there..VERY LET DOWN.

Room Tip: Find somewhere else.
