What a dump! Photos are nothing like the condition
Dirty, needs repair, crappy breakfast. Our room's bathroom light switch and bedside outlets were broke. Non-smoking and pool hours were not enforced. And, it was on the high side of rates. Do not look at the photos, They are nothing like the hotel's conditions.

Not bad but not good
There were pros and cons of staying here. It was a reasonable walk to everywhere we wanted to go and the room ended up being quite bigger than we expected and it ended up being on the floor level with a sliding glass door. Which was a plus. The only down side was the room was pretty tore up and the bathroom needed major help.. but it was for a bachelorette party so we werent spending too much time in the room. Thankfully. The staff was rude and very short was us about everything. We paid for parking but only 1 of our 3 cars was allowed in the parking lot which was sucky too. Overall I'm not sure if we'd stay there again because Ive stayed in nicer for cheaper in santa cruz but it worked for what we needed.
