CLOSE TO TOWN

The rooms themselves were spacious enough and clean. The breakfast was underwhelming and the breakfast room was VERY small. It was served until 10 AM. The parking lot is small and was full at night. As other reviews say even though it is close to the boardwalk, a Starbucks, restaurants, and ice cream shops, I would NOT walk around at night. Unfortunately there were lots of ‘interesting’ characters in the area. If you want a relatively cheap room and will really only be staying in the room, give it a shot. If you plan to walk around at all either be in a big group or find something nicer. We vacationed with some friends, they purchased through another travel site and were also charged about $10 less a night. That was a bummer as I like Orbitz but it cost me in this case.

Free breakfast from 7-10 includes waffles, cereal, fruit, eggs, sausage, toast, pastries, coffee, juice, and yogurt

TV didn't work right; lock was very fussy; shower needed attention; room had little furniture; crowded breakfast room.

The room was very comfortable with a table and chairs and a microwave. We found the location handy for the University and for visiting the city. Very friendly and helpful staff.

check in was fast with friendly staff. uneventful stay with no problems. plenty of parking. free breakfast was good with fresh hot waffles. room was fresh and clean. good clean bathroom with strong shower. plenty of space in the room with a king size bed. nice size TV and good working wifi. comfortable bed. everything in the room was in good to new condition. carpets were clean and new like condition.

Easy location. Nice manager. Clean room. Would stay again and recommend to others.

If you are looking for something near the SC Board walk/ beach then this is the place if you dont mind a few things.... The down side for this trip was the room itself. Not clean. Wear shoes of some sort at all times on these floors. Trust me its safer. Not to mention the roach on the ceiling. Overall would not come again or reccommend.

really is a Motel every accommodation in Santa Cruz is well over priced, $200+ a night for a motel, yep that's it. Rooms were clean staff were friendly. It was convenient for our needs.

Clean, quiet room. Friendly proprietor. Generous continental breakfast. Would reccomend. Will return!

I was very pleased with this hotel: good central location, large room, clean and newly remodeled. The best of all was a large pillow top bed with four pillows, so comfy. so enjoyable..... Breakfast was also good and plenty to choose from. Front desk staff was very nice, checked us in early and was very courteous though out our stay. Overall this is a good hotel despite its a little overpriced during summer. I would recommend it to my friends and stay there again myself.

This place is not run down. It is just basic. Everything in the room was clean, in good working order, and remodeled within the last few years. It is a good value for a no-frills place, people are friendly and lots of families were here. Pool was clean. Hotel room had no indication of any dirt or anything to worry about. Felt safe there by myself as a woman traveling on business. Would stay again. About 1 1/2 miles to boardwalk. I didn't try the breakfast but it smelled good.

Seems like the place has recently been remodeled . Clean enough - a priority for me. Decent breakfast and fast and friendly check-in and -out. Walls are thicker than most other hotels, which we appreciated as the guests next door came to hang out with friends. We are likely to return.

The staff were great. The hotel is well cared for. It is convenient to the center of town.

When I arrived, there was no one in the lobby, then after they found out there was only 1 person staying in room,I was given a room with 1 queen bef that was not what wad reserved and had a damaged door that was difficult to lstch. Room was chsned but not much better. Heater wad noisy, bed was uncomfortable, and in the mirning there was noone in the lobby snf no continential breakfast. Not recommended and Quality Inn needs to look into this locstion. Not up to their standards and not worth $100/night off season.

The cost of this hotel for 1 overnight stay was excessive for the condition of the building, furniture, carpeting, bedding, etc.

I enjoyed my stay and everything was clean, efficient and the staff was very friendly and amenable. I did have to lug my baggage upstairs - but 2nd floor is always safer...

me and my husand just went for one night.. the room was very clean and had a nice flat screen tv.. the appearence was better from the inside... the outside doesnt look too appealing but the room was nice enough for the price.... the front desk person was really nice... i have nothing to comlain about...
