Good visit

by DaveL427

Very happy with our stay. Quick and friendly check in, excellent room and breakfast was of a high standard. Easy parking. We walked down to boardwalk which was ok - except you have to walk back! Driving would be easier option! Couple of restaurants close to hotel. All in all, a good choice for visit to Santa Cruz.

Great room & great value

by MeganLouise24

Nice spacious room, comfy bed, clean, tidy and tasteful. Out of town, so you need a car.
On arrival in Santa Cruz, My husband and I weren’t impressed with the beachfront / pier area of town, so we drove away and headed along Ocean Avenue and found this hotel. Check in was fast and pleasant.
We were only 5 mins drive from downtown Santa Cruz which was a lot nicer again, than the beach / pier end of town. There is a lovely strip of restaurants and shopping. We were there on a Friday night, so nice busy vibe.
Our hotel was great value & comfortable. Highly recommend.
