"We did real last minute booking, thanks to their clean UI website which made speedy booking on our Ipad We were very surprised and pleased with the room, it was VERY large and clean. The bathroom was huge and actually had a bathtub/shower and a second shower. The beds were very comfortable too. We felt very safe & secured in the hotel complex (security cameras were numerous and very visible) and had no issues. All in all, a great place to stay away from the hubbub of the Boardwalk but still close enough to enjoy all that Santa Cruz has to offer."
Motel is a few steps from the boardwalk.
