We arrived in Santa Cruz on a busy Saturday night and this was the only motel we could find with a vacancy. Our room was $120, and let me tell you, for what you get, that price is outrageous. It reminded me of the kind of rooms we stayed in during our budget holiday to India. It had a weird... More

This hotel (motel) was very good for the price paid. I noticed a number of negative reviews but they seem to be from prior to new management taking over. Room was clean, location is good, guy at the desk was nice. This is a solid motel at a reasonable price.

Do not stay here, our toilet got blocked, the owner refused to give us a discount on account of us having no toilet all night, it was over flowing for hours. The sheets were dirty, do not stay here. The owner doesn't listen to complaints, the poorest service I've received in the US.
