Didn't have too much of a problem with the hotel itself. It is older, but they are doing upgrades. It was great cause it was so close to the boardwalk and the beach. We walked the entire time. Two problems we had were first, check in was at 3, but the room wasn't ready till after 4. Total bummer. And secondly, don't expect the continental breakfast. They don't have much, and it was not great quality. When the clerk refilled the milk so my son could have cereal, he put the lid on it which had cereal on it. It was gross. We forefitted breakfast there. ... more

Location and easy to get around to downtown and the boardwalk.

You get what you pay for and less. Some shady things going on in the rooms that were occupied. The first room they gave me was not clean when we checked in and the room was just a funky smell.

Easy location to access both Downtown Santa Cruz along with the board walk. Staff on hand was alright. House keeping a minimum on our second day they did not even clean our room and we called the front desk but no help either. ... more

The location was awesome. A little seedy, but right on the water.

The front desk said they closed at 10:00 but when I got back to the hotel at 9:45 the key to my room didn't work. I went to the front desk to get a new key it was already closed and their 'emergency hotline number' was to the phone in the closed office.

I went to the front desk to get a new key it was already closed and their 'emergency hotline number' was to the phone in the closed office. My boyfriend and I ended up having to find another hotel at 10:00 at night with all our things locked up in our original room. The next day when we went back to the hotel to talk to the front desk they weren't even aware that anybody had even called the night before even though we left them three messages. For this reason I will never recommend this hotel to anybody. ... more

the hotel was great and legit. However priceline.com Booking the room online dose not include the security deposit, which is understandable, but a risk. When I got to the motel to check-in they told me that I needed to have a debit/credit card with $100 on it for the deposit. That is standard most all hotels have similar policies, the problem was that If I hadn't come up with the $100 I would not have been able to check in and I would have lost the money that I paid for the room because of priceline.com's neglectful cancellation policies. While talking with the front desk I learned that there is pretty much no benefit to booking your hotel online. Well, other than the lovely headache, maybe you save a dollar or two... So far Priceline has been an unnecessary and awful experience with no perks what so ever. ... more

Prices are average price per night of stay and may not include taxes and fees. "Total" includes our estimate of the taxes and fees. Please verify the total cost on the provider's site before you complete your reservation. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
