    A very affordable hotel, very clean and well-maintained. The owners/staff are quite nice and friendly. It was very easy to walk anywhere I needed. Great grocery stores and restaurants nearby, and easy walk to downtown.

    The staff was nice and the room was clean but it is very much a budget motel.

    The room was tiny. Breakfast consisted of 2 kinds of bread, 2 kinds of cereal, and orange juice. It is not near the boardwalk, the beach or downtown

    The customer service was pretty good and they wanted to ensure that I was fully satisfied with my room. For the price and location it was nice place to stay and rest for awhile.

    Nothing to really complain about. I'd stay here again on my next trip to Santa Cruz
