Very Good8.0
Reasonable stop off point
Nice rooms, poor breakfast and the hot tub bleached my swimsuit. Not a fan of Santa Cruz (run down and tacky though clearly nit the hotels fault).
A Traveller, gb1 night trip
Hotel Solares
Three night stay
Room was fine, clean and fairly modern. Location of hotel wasn’t the best, it was great to walk to the Boardwalk, but the surrounding area wasn’t the nicest area of the city. Breakfast was good although a little crowded each morning. We stayed for three nights as part of a road trip with two kids. Felt that two nights would have been sufficient to see what Santa Cruz had to offer.

Hotel Solares
Lovely place to stay, staff were great at helping when we came back to find we hadn’t got clean sheets and towels. Only downside was the amount of dust in the room.
