  : Very friendly and accommodating staff. Great central location in the heart of Santa Cruz. Large room. Updated shower area. Nice mini-fridge in room.
  : Beds were not the most comfortable. Floor had not been cleaned. Traffic noise was a factor.

  : New floors , walls, doors, toilet and shower. Location was just over the river from the Boardwalk.
  : Could have had more counter space in bath room and bigger access to the sink. Needed more space to hang up clothes and maybe a desk with chair.

  : The location of the motel was great! It took about 8 minutes for us to walk from the room to the Board Walk. Our bed was comfortable, there was a fridge, freezer and microwave. The staff was very nice and friendly, super accommodating!
  : In our bathroom, there was a padded toilet seat (which personally, we do not like) and it seemed that it was broken because it slid all over the place when you tried to sit down. Additionally, while we would stay again, we would request a room on the second floor, because we could hear foot steps above us all throughout the night. Finally, there was a sliding door that looked like it would open up to a private area, but it was open to the entire back of the motel and the person in the room next to us came out and was practically standing in front of our slider - that didn't have more than a standard flip lock.

Traveller Type: young couple
  : Updated spacious bathroom (minus the sink area). Clean room. 40/42 inch tv. Spacious/updated mini fridge. Location was good, about a mile walk to boardwalk. Corner room. Quiet (minus gun shots)
  : Wood floors had a layer of cleaning product, had to keep socks on. No coffee maker in room, no luggage racks. Outdated furniture/decor. Small sink area in bathroom. No hair dryer/iron/ironing board. No tissue box. Had to pay for ice. Shower only had one space for shampoo bottle or bar soap, everything else had to sit on the floor (it was a step in shower, no tub). No vanity. A/C was in the corner of the room, took a bit longer to cool room. One thin blanket. Hard pillows. Also heard gun shot in the middle of the night.
