WARNING!! Do not stay here! Shower did not work!

Shower didn't work, nor A/C. Beds very hard. Owner is trying to renovate and wants YOU to pay for it. STAY AT MOTEL 6 or some known chain but not here OR at Knights Inn. Same owner, same bad attitude. !!

Pleasant Hotel Close To The Beach!

Pros: Service, Price, Proximity to the beach
Cons: Bathroom and Showers could be improved/updated a bit!
Location: great location! Close to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and other restaurants
I honestly was nervous to stay in this hotel based off of the previous reviews, because the reviews were very mixed. However, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed staying here! My boyfriend and I stayed for 3 nights and really loved it. The family who runs this hotel are all very sweet and helpful, and our room was cleaned each day like clockwork. Was a 10 minute walk to the beach boardwalk, and also had a microwave, mini fridge, and Flat Screen TV with great channels. You can tell that the place has been renovated, and is still being improved. I think the owners are doing a much better job to make sure that their guests are feeling safe and comfortable. We will definitely be staying here again for our summer beach trip next year!

Not good

We would have given this place maybe 3 stars but the bed cover had blood stains and hair around the stains. I mentioned this to the staff but once you see this you get a bad taste!
