It's pretty much as advertised with great proximity to downtown and the freeway. Perfect for a weekend getaway

It was the most disgusting hotel I’ve ever stayed at. So I guess that’s unique. Worst hotel in California.....

Everything i needed to do was in walking distance.. i enjoy walking,

Room was about what I had expected. Staff was very friendly and welcoming.

Average motel with limited facilities and a Medicare breakfast.

Old spring bed was uncomfortable. Short bottom sheet not covering torn mattress was uncomfortable. Only One trash bin. No tea in room. Not worth $190 a night! This was a motel 6 quality. Should have stayed at M6 and saved my Orbitz bucks. :(

close to the place we are going did not like the ref not wirking even after fixing , chair is worn out

We arrived about an hour before Chck in. Jay, the young man at the desk said "no problem" . Room was clean and I loved the hardwood floors.

I had read the reviews prior to our visit, so wasn't expecting anything great. It definately lived up to its reviews! It looks like they really tried hard to update the room but failed miserabally. Why would you put a computer chair in the room that looked like it was fished out of a dumpster?? The bed had to be from the 1990's. The toilet leaked every time it was flushed. There are handprints on the ceiling??? Even with the reviews I stayed because we were only going to be in our room to sleep and left early in the morning. The continental breakfast did look good though. And the hotel was very quiet while we were there.

I would not stay again. As a last choice, I would only stay 1 night. TV did not work.

The room was not cleaned well. The sheets weren't changed and needed to be. There were pistachio shells under the bed, and the bathroom floor had hair on it. And the window's screen had a cut in it which made it seem as if someone had broken into it before. Sketchy guests hang out all night long outside.

It's the feel of a budget hotel without the budget price. At least not on a holiday weekend. Cigarette burnt quilts, stiff beds, and less than exciting breakfast (they didn't even have scrambled eggs). I could understand and be ok with the pricing based on out initial arrival. Although when we first arrived there was a strong pot smell in out non smoking room. We figured it was a coincidence and thought nothing of it as it went away shortly thereafter. Only to arrive back home to it after it had been cleaned by hotel staff the following day. When approached about it, my girlfriend was only told pot is legal in CA and there isn't anything they could really do, as they handed her a spray freshener. With no concern and no response that it was a non smoking room and that pot is only legal for medical use as far as I'm aware in CA. Everything was fine once we left the do not disturb sign on the door for the rest of our stay though. Although the checkout could have been easier if the one and only staff member available didn't leave the office with 3 guests waiting on him for about 10 minutes.

Staff was nice. The room smelled like cigarettes and pot. Room felt dirty.

The breakfast was nice the room adiquit. The property was under construction and so things like cleaning the pool and the deck, tables etc didn't seem to be on the list.there was a pair of ducks depositing waste around the pool area. There were several days nice enough tò swim, and I would have if the pool was clean. The most disturbing thing was that the threshold was never placed back up to and under the door leaving a huge gap into the room. We rolled up our bath mat to put in the gap as not to get any critters in the room with us. The layout of the tub toIièt area was very small and hard to negoitate. We were there 7 days I wish though there was a desk, small table to eat at or play cards would have been nice. The security lights shined into the room all night till 6 am when they would finally turn off. Security was nice but a dark room is good too. We never were able to connect to the free wifi. So the things that we chose this hotel for the WiFi and pool we never were able to use

Trash all over the place. No effort to clean up. Will not stay here again.

Hair in the bed and showers. Very dirty. Would never stay at again.

The staff was friendly. The location was the best part. The Hotel itself was beyond mediocre. We left early. It was not at all on par for the price. More like a 1 or 2 star rating instead of 3. I would not recommend going through Oebutz again....

Hotel is very conveniently located. Room was clean and staff was very nice. only down side was shower curtain rod seemed like it was falling. I told the staff and nothing was done about it. Curtain did not stretch out and water was splashing out of tub. Not a big deal, but made it uncomfortable to shower knowing outside was getting wet. Other than that, it was great, peaceful, quiet, and looked very clean. All hotels in Santa Cruz are expensive, so this was average price. Will stay there again.
