A bit overpriced for the value but a nice place.
Staff was friendly and the room was great. I will stay there again when I go to Santa Cruz
I had trouble connecting to the internet.
The location and friendly service. Great experience. Will return in the future.

Free Parking in secure lot
Room was too small for two people, no closet, no wifi when I checked in, no phone to call desk clerk (who wasn't on site) about issues. No elevator ( I have a mobility problem). Clerk answered my complaints with an attitude. I would not stay here again.
