Very nice.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet
I would come back to this hotel again. It was clean and comfy. The only thing I didnt like was I got there 20 minutes before check in time and they had me wait till it was exactly 3:00. I had twin boys 20 months and a 5 year old so it was a little inconvenient for me. But other then that it was really nice an I would go again.

Clean hotel with friendly staff

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet
Cons: Noisy
Easy access to freeway. Breakfast was OK. Rooms were clean and seemed to have been updated rairly recently. Fitness room is very small. I didn't use the pool. My only complaint is that the lobby kept their radio on all night, and it woke me up a few times during the night. The second night I figured out where it was coming from, and called down to front desk to lower volume, which they did.

Cheap but Clean Near Monterey

Pros: Free Internet
Cons: Nothing close
Perfect hotel if you are attending a conference in Monterey and don't want to pay the super-high prices of local hotels. This hotel is clean, serviceable and inelegant. Perfectly comfortable for one night.

Good Price, Nice for Families

We took our young niece and nephew to Santa Cruz Beach and Boardwalk and wanted to stay somewhere that was nicer than downtown Santa Cruz but still a short drive away. This place certainly fit the bill. The check-in process was smooth as ever. We booked a day before on online travel website. The room was large enough for the four of us and the quite comfortable. It was near a large shopping mall with several places to find a family dinner, but far enough away from the mall and main road that noise was not an issue. The morning breakfast was a great surprise ~ REAL FOOD! Overall a great experience.
