My boyfriend and i stopped in for one night on our way from Monterey to San Francisco.
We booked a suite which had a king bed, 2 tvs, big bathroom and a small kitchenette which was very well equipped.
Service was very good...helpful and friendly. Breakfast was a standard Holiday Inn breakfast, but sufficient and adequate.
The gym was well equipped also. They also have a nice pool, but we didn't have time to use it.
The only downfall of this hotel is that it is located far from the wharf and boardwalk, so if you are in town specifically to spend time at the wharf and fun park then you will need to drive for 5 mins or so and walking would take 25-30 mins.
If you are passing through Santa Cruz as we were and not wanting to check out the downtown and wharf area then i would highly recommend staying here.
