The service is good and breakfast is good. But, the floors are dirty and towels are stained. I'm sorry that we had to lay your already stained towels on the floor, but it was so that our feet wouldn't get dirty again after washing as we walk to the bed. We rented two rooms and one had a jacuzzi, but...

This place is horrible. Bathrooms not clean or updated. Room smelled musty. The phones and Internet in our rooms didn't work. The front staff was indifferent and did not fix the problem. There is no place to eat breakfast in the lobby of this place and only one person can approach the breakfast bar at a time so people were...

This motel was rated relatively well within this price range so I thought I'd give it a try. My family and I needed to stay just one night to enjoy the Boardwalk. The short walk to the Boardwalk was definitely appealing. Pros: The beds weren't too bad. I'm a Tempurpedic sleeper so bad spring beds usually do a number on...

The room was large and clean. The reception was unwelcoming, the receptionist was very unwelcoming (worst person we met on our US trip). The reception area was dirty and as breakfast was served here we didn't eat it. This hotel is very basic, if you want the cheapest place then this is a bed for the night.

I normally stay at 5 star hotels. In Santa Cruz they are few and far between. The Super 8 was clean, staff was friendly, quick walk to the boardwalk.

After picking up our key, we drove around the parking lot to find a spot - nothing available within 3 blocks of the hotel. In addition to the lack of parking, several shady people were hanging out in the lot. Before even entering our room, we decided to find a place more family-friendly (read: safe and clean). After returning our...

The front desk clerk was very pleasant. I am a Wynhdam owner so our one night stay was free with our Wynhdam reward points. The room was clean but the only thing I was disappointed in was the sheets that were on the bed were stained. I was unable to access Wifi but wasn't a big deal. I enjoyed the...

No roll away bed for Grandma. I had to call reservation people to get something for her to sleep on. Had to argue with desk person. Had to ask for bedding.

We stayed for a night at the Super 8 in Santa Cruz. It was ok. Definitely bare bones essentials. We all slept well, and the beds were clean. It served its purpose for us. I was very disappointed in how much Santa Cruz had deteriorated since I had last been there, and the amount paid for a bare bones room...
