      Just a nice stay. Nothing too special but in a perfect location(close to beach and downtown) ans super friendly staff!!

      Although we did reserve a room with a kink size bed, the guy at the front desk announced us with a great smile when we checked-in that there was a glitch in the reservation system and we'd have to do with 2 queen size beds. That was basically take it or leave it! The bathtub was clogged and we had to remove the stopper in order to allow the water to drain

      Great location and easy on the pocket book! Bonus -Included a better than average continental breakfast!

      Lcation was good.

      Room was right next to a busy road...noisy all night long! Bed mattress was saging in the middle. I'm not sure if it was worn out from being there for so long or if it was bought at a cheap price from a brothel! Lights went out in the bathroom, had to take a shower in the dark! Talked with the person at the counter when we checked out and said why didn't you call me? Ummm I was trying to take a shower half hour earlier in the dark and sure as hell didn't want him checking it out then! Then he says next time you stay here we will give you a discount...NOT In my lifetime!!! We went to Monterey the next 2 days and had a better room, better view of the ocean and for the two nights it was cheaper than the HoJo's in Santa Cruz!
