Dear Guest, Thank you for choosing The Continental Inn Santa Cruz and taking the time to leave a review. We are grateful for your patience and feedback. On a busy street such as Ocean St and in the heart of Santa Cruz, arguably the most dynamic area of downtown Santa Cruz, the experiences can be sometimes slightly noisy. Nevertheless, we do offer our guests a secluded location depending on availability. Please request an upstairs room away from the street on your next visit. Warm Regards.

Dear Mb, thank you for providing feedback regarding your stay. We apologize for the inconvenience. The issue with the smell was due to a tiny fault in the air conditioning system, which was fixed in less than 60 seconds by our maintenance staff. We are glad that your overall stay was okay and hope to see you soon in the future. Warm regards.

Mr. Redmond, I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you because of my negligence. I am the person you described in the review. I try my best to help people, like I did with the forks and spoons for you. I offered to carry your luggage for you and move you to a room with a working heater, but could not keep my word. I take full responsibility for it and I promise you that your requirements will be my top priority when you stay with us again. From what I read, I take it that you were overall satisfied with your stay and we would like another opportunity to you to emphasize that we do care about our guests. Warm regards

Dear Savannah, Our hotel staff is pleased to hear your compliments about our hard working front desk staff! They work very hard, so we appreciate this feedback. I am so sorry that you did not feel comfortable being in the annex area at all hours of the day. Some of our guests use that area to smoke, so that they are away from the rooms. We also have plenty of security cameras around the property, and the front desk staff monitors them closely. However, the night shift constantly makes rounds around the entire hotel, every single space to make sure our guests are safe as well as their cars.Your safety and comfort is our #1 priority. We hope with this explanation that you are comfortable at our hotel, or you can request a room on the opposite side of the road. Our front desk staff is always 1 "0" away to help you with anything you may need. Best Regards, Sam Durrani
