Sort by:
2.8 Poor
Pros:Location & that they take dogs.
Cons:Fitted sheets. Sheets without holes. The keys never worked. The rug was awful. The drawers were dirty. The doors were not sturdy & they had been broken & “fixed”. The blinds were badly placed do the sunlight woke you up way too early in the morning.
2.5 Poor
Pros:Watched a couple funny movies. Getting back my deposit for the room without problems. I made sure to pay cash so I'm not stuck waiting 3 week's for a refund.
Cons:Non refundable reservation. Even if you call a week ahead to cancel.
6.0 Okay
Pros:Breakfast..Friendly staff. Good cleaning staff.
Cons:Stained carpets. Wires hanging from wall where they had removed T V from second bedroom. Need a paint job.
2.0 Poor
Pros:I booked the wrong date, immediately cancelled and they refused to help me until reluctantly sending an email to booking .com 10 days later, much too late. So I got ripped off for a night’s stay that I never used.
Cons:Surly front desk staff. Incredibly unhelpful. When I did stay there another time previously they told me over the phone that early checkin was fine. When I showed up they said that the room was not ready and early checkin was $40 extra and the room was not ready. After a heated argument the phantom fee for being there 30 minutes early was waived and the room was miraculously ready.
4.8 Mediocre
Pros:The location was good enough. I liked the indoor pool option, although we never made it in.
Cons:I requested an early check-in, and was denied, even though it was only one hour early. When I returned I had to stand in line and do the whole check in process again. The room was noisy, I could hear conversations from the parking lot downstairs. On check out, I asked for my receipt to be emailed to me. That never happened. There's too many choices in Santa Cruz to return to this hotel .
4.8 Mediocre
Pros:Walking distance breakfast,location
Cons:Sat day 7 /1/2017 was scheduled/ reserved for a double bed king siute!! Said i only had a single bed kingsuite !! Told me to take it up with Kayak!!! Only could have 2 & a half people in the room the manager was mean , rasisit, told a potential asian women employee that only the Mexicans cleans well and are good workers said friends and family could not eat or visir in room and after some argument with a friend he alowed for 2hrs to eat and leave.
2.0 Poor
Pros:The refrigerator and stove and sink were nice.
Cons:Horrible staff, horrible parking lot. Thin walls and doors. Weirdo tweakers staying there.
4.0 Mediocre
Cons:Less than friendly staff. Old, non kept up rooms. Peeling paint etc.
4.8 Mediocre
Pros:The only two things I personally liked about this hotel was its closeness to the beach and boardwalk area and that it was fairly comfortable and quiet
Cons:What made this an overall negative experience was the fact that I spent 160.00$ for a night in a hotel that was worth 70.00$ tops
3.7 Poor
Cons:Never again.
