Lovely hotel
Docsalv

Very clean, well-maintained and located in a nice area of Santa Cruz/Scotts Valley. The pool area is nice with cabanas. It offers a good price for being so close to the Santa Cruz attractions. I would recommend this place.

Noise

Too much noise form the A/C ventilation. We tried to turn it off but I didn't have the option. The only options that I have it was automatic and ON. The pool was full in hair no very inviting to go in

Decidedly average

The reception and other staff were very welcoming and friendly.

Our room was ok but somewhat tired. The bathroom was not comfortable (there was a bath, but the bottom of it was so textured it was impossible to relax in it; there was some staining to one of the walls). There was a constant pervading scent throughout the reception area which floated elsewhere over time and was not pleasant. Presumably this was to mask the smell of cigarette smoke from some of the smoking rooms? but it really did make me feel quite sick.

The breakfast was very poor value; not a lot of choice, very oily/fatty cooked items and just generally better to be avoided.

The pool area was ok with sufficient places to relax around the pool, but a luxury break it is not.
