Gutes Motel, gutes Frühstück, empfehlenswert

Kurzfristige Zwischenübernachtung gebucht, Upgrade auf 2-Bett Zimmer bekommen. Sauber und gut ausgestattet. Frühstück mit Toast und Müsli ausreichend. Pool sah gut und gepflegt aus, leider blieben wir nur 1 Nacht.
Steckdosen im Zimmer waren nicht zum Laden vom Handy geeignet, haben wir erst früh bemerkt. Funktionierte nur im Bad einwandfrei.

Room and bathroom were clean. Breakfast was okay (cereals, toast, coffee, juice)
Way too expensive for what you get. Service was not the best. Not really friendly and we expected to get a discount for being an AAA members but they said they dont have that anymore. They still had the sign for it right outside the Office tho so we wanted that discount. And after a while they told us its only for walk in guests and that we got that discount already cause we booked over booking.com. So we got one excuse after another. Pretty disappointing.Hairdryer did not work.

The balcony
Room was old looking and had stains on bed and bathroom towels. Also the 100$ deposit ive been to better hotels and never had to do that????

Nice room to stay

Clean and comfy room, not bad location.
Breakfast was very poor. Do not expect ham, sausages, eggs, rather buy your own food.

Nice stay in Santa Cruz

Nice staff, good parking, good wifi. Good for value, but very basic accommodations.
The bed was pretty uncomfortable. My electronics wouldn't stay plugged into the electrical outlets in the room (sockets were loose).


Sep, 28, 2016

Poorly advertised and very outdated

Very convenient location to everything we did.
Only one large towel, rest were floor towels. Very out dated room and bed was very uncomfortable. Advertised shower and tub combo and only had a stand up shower. Also said pool was heated and it was freezing.

This place ruined my weekend, filthy, stay away

Nothing, place was filthy, staff cared about money 1st, guests 2nd.
I did not like Booking.com. No help at all, paid for two nights left after one. Management ran $100.00 charge for deposit on my credit card and did not credit it back. Called and said it would be 5 business days.

Very good

Close to Boardwalk
No view


Sep, 20, 2016

Dont recommended this hotel

Had to put $100 deposit on top of the $80 for the night and $100 will not be back in my account for 3 to 5 business days


Sep, 20, 2016

Great place

Staff and rooms close to everything as far as beaches and stores and shops

Front desk not friendly. Hotel ok.

The amenities were helpful: fridge, microwave, coffee maker. Cleaning staff was good and friendly.
Front desk staff was not friendly. Not totally rude, but definitely not friendly, and helpful only to the absolute bare minimum. They also told me it was $20 to check in early; then when I got there tried to charge me $30

Wouldn't come back. Way too expensive for what it is.

The shower was new and clean.
The location, staff, and the people surrounding the facility. Very sketchy. Didn't feel comfortable to walk at night. They made us pay a $100 damage deposit that we didn't know about until we got there. We were lucky to have it in cash on us.


Sep, 15, 2016

Do not stay here!!

This place is horrible and the staff is terribly rude too- save your money!


Sep, 15, 2016

It was an okay stay at a very mediocre hotel.

It is an okay place if you only need a place to sleep.
I certainly don't like the $100 deposit for amenities. There are none, unless having a couple of towels is an amenity. Ridiculous charge.

This motel served it's purpose but I'll pass on it next time. Even if it has a price deal.

I liked that there were two chairs to sit on instead of just the bed. One was decently comfortable although dirty looking. The other was a comfortable enough office chair. Also convenient were a refrigerator and coffe pot as well as a microwave but we did not use the microwave.
Only one mirror for the whole room and it is in the bathroom and no light over it. That had been removed. No carpeting and I prefer carpet on the floor.

Don't stay here

Nothing at All !!...
There was no breakfast let alone the eggs all they had was toast and watery coffee


Sep, 01, 2016

Very poor

The shower had old and new tiles on the walls, mold in the corners of the shower, rusty toilet paper holder...


Aug, 30, 2016

Will stay there again

Bed was comfortable, bathroom was clean.

Good neighborhood, clean place, everything went well
The deposit was somehow obligatory although it was not communicated anywhere during reservation process


Aug, 28, 2016

Old rooms and unfriendly staff

The bathroom was new and clean. There is a fridge and microwave in the room.
Sheets were stained,the carpet old and sticky,and the room smelled of feet. The bed was large but the mattress was not very comfy. Don't expect more than toast for breakfast..


Aug, 27, 2016

Handy location, clean enough and comfy.

The room was spacious and the shower was great! Just what you need after a day on the beach. We were pleased how quiet it was with the windows closed as the road alongside had looked busy. The juice at breakfast was nice. Easy walk to beach front and town centre.
For what you got the price was high compared to everywhere else we stayed. But then it was the cheapest we could find in Santa Cruz, so I guess it was fair. Hoovering wasn't great.
