The Staff was really NICE....The beds were Comfortable, and it was Awesome that the room had a Refrigerator!!! We were within a 5-15 min (.25 to .5 miles think) to the Board Walk !!!-- Free Parking-- Great way to save $$$. The pool looked Decent- But we did not use it.
My only complaint was the "Breakfast". I was a Joke!!! Ha-ha!!! The Juice and Hot Water dispenser were broken. So they had Sunny d in the Frig- And the only Food was Prepackaged Sweet rolls... The Funny park was that it had a Sign that said "One per Person Please"!!! Lol!!! So we went to Capitola for a Nice Breakfast Instead!--- Which we may not have done other wise... Maybe the crappy "Breakfast" was a Good thing after all..... You can decide!
It was on a very quite intersection. I appreciated the microwave and mini fridge. The upstairs rooms had a very pretty balcony. Very close to the boardwalk and other places. We were able to walk to were we wanted to go most of the time. It was a pleasent experience.
The bed sheets did not fit the king size bed. Also the cleaniness of the carpet and sheets/comforter were less than desirable. The shower curtain was made of cotton, so water sprayed through onto the floor making a big puddle.
This place was clean, the beds were comfortable and the shower was hot! The hotel isn't much to look at from the outside but it was nicer than a motel 6 inside. The breakfast was lame but what do you expect for the price. There is an amazing bakery like two blocks away called Emma's good eats or something like that.
The staff was a little irritated that we showed up late but other than that they were great.
The room was nice and turn down service was prompt and tidy.
I was really impressed to have TV,a fridge ,a microwave and coffee mashine. Room was clean and comfortable. I would def. stay there again. Too bad it wasn't hot enough to go into the pool.
I really liked the room cleanliness and the short/ walking distance to the beach which was very comfortable for my young two and four year old kids.:)
Great location and a very short walk to the boardwalk and dining on the pier.
The room could have had a clock radio
People were smoking pot the entire time I was there, and no one seemed to care.
I wanted to take my family away for memorial day weekend to the beach. Was very surprised when Booked.net showed me this room for 69 a night on the sunday before memorial day. It read it was only a 7 minute walk from the boardwalk which I liked cause I had my 3 year old daughter I wanted to take to the beach and ride some rides on the boardwalk. Was expecting a total dive for that price but figured what the heck its only one night. Was pleasantly surprised when I got there. Parking was easy. Pool was warm and clean, staff was friendly and helpful and the room was nice size and had a inviting feel to it with its nice comforters and large bathroom. Ill definatley be back. Loved it! Easy access to the beach!
Proximity to the Boardwalk (easy walk) Courteous, helpful staff
Some units are very close to a major road and intersection.
there was a microwave and a fridge. i loved that the place was very clean and the amenities were wonderful. i will gladly stay at this inn again.
Close to beach and pier
Breakfast, beds & towels
Great Value, the best i had in a month long road trip across California, Nevada and Arizona. Very friendly staff, the best breakfast for the money. Huge room and a perfectly working Jacuzzi. Walking distance to the Sta. Cruz boardwalk, Totally recommend it.
Nothing, everything was great
Facilities are great for the price, including everything you can find in a hotel, clean and tidy. Room is very large and quiet.
The room was clean & beds were comfortable. Location was close to downtown & the boardwalk.
Not much parking in front.
