    I like that it was not far from my family and was available.

    It has been a long time since I've been in a hotel without a hairdryer, tissues, air conditioning. It was good to have a kitchen, but why no pots, pans, dishes, eating utensils?

  • Family with children
    5.8

    Pool wasn't heated for the kids. The oven wasn't working and didn't realize there wouldn't be any pots and pans or silverware, ect.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    It was quiet. Separate sink area/ toilet room.

    Uncomfortable beds. No breakfast. Refridge did not work

  • Older travelers

    room was not ready tried to check in at 1400 but was told to come back at 1500. 1530 we went back room was not ready still with dirty linens, very disappointed. not coming back/not recommending.

  • Single

    It was the least expensive hotel I could find on short notice (day before). The people were friendly.

    It did not look or smell clean. The bed was mushy. The kitchen had no cooking or eating supplies provided (no pots and pans, no plates, nothing).

    Price and access.

    Outside noise, just an example in the middle of the night a tow truck was picking a car from the parking lot.

  • Couple

    The hotel was right between where we had reservations and the beach. Its at a great location. We got lot a few times and seemed as find out way back. Its close to the beach, but not too close and for travelers; there way a walgrees right across the street. It was nice.

    When I got there I waited like 30 minutes for someone to come, when they came I had to wait an hour for a room key. Those were the only issues I had

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    It was a solid hotel. Didn't feel like I would be stabbed and it was clean.

    It was a little more expensive than it should be.

  • Couple
    7.8

    Very cheap. We payed $60 for a king room with separate kitchen. The place was huge. Very retro. The place hasn't been updated since the 80's but great value for money. Plenty I parks available.

    For the price of our room you can't complain about it being retro.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    Steve in the lobby was very accommodating, very friendly, got me a roll away bed instantly and opened the gate to the swimming pool when it was locked. Also provided me a map to get to Crow's Nest and Shadow Brook Restaurant without taking the freeway, which is a big deal while the Begonia Festival is going on.

    It's on the older side, not modern. They definately need to remodel.

  • Family with children
    8.2

    Clean and easy

    The price was different when I paid from the quoit I got online

  • Older travelers
    6.4

    Large room, large bed, refrigerator, dining table, free wireless internet.

    One sleepless night due to a very loud guest in an an adjacent room and an inability to contact hotel staff to address it.

  • Family with children
    5.4

    Hitching was a great place to stay for my wallet. Had two kids, wife and I. Paid about $100 for the night, got two beds. Our main goal was to have fun in Santa Cruz, and then get back to the hotel, fall asleep. We did not stay at the hotel for too long.

    Well, you could say a lot of bad things about the hotel if you were looking for luxury. But if your focus is in budget friendly, the complaints that I have was our room was not ready when we got their. We had to wait 15 minutes for the maid to finish getting our room ready. The air conditioner did not work, and I am glad that we spent most of our time not in the hotel, the brick walls were not really doing it for me. Basically stayed their to sleep, then left the next morning.

    it's in Santa Cruz

    Thin threadbare bedspreads, lime green walls? Door opens on driveway, no buffer.
