college tour day at UCSC

04/03/2018 Rick S, El Granada, California

Some rooms have road noise. Rooms are pretty decent for the price. Stay away from the corner room that boarders Plymouth and Ocean. That will be the noisiest of rooms. Breakfast is pretty mediocre. ... more

Never stay here

When we arrived to check in the power was out, not the hotel's fault and I am not mad about that. The desk clerk allowed us to check into our rooms, so we dropped off our stuff and headed for the boa... more

Dear Guest: I remember the incident and of course we were and we are very sorry for the inconvenience. You are right at your arrival before 2:00 pm and part of Santa Cruz area had a issue with not power and I checked in you and the rest of your family at the rooms and you access to your room and stay for a little while and I saw both or families in and out of the two rooms it was a small group. We do not have specific time for our guest to report any incident that happen at the rooms but if our guest find blood in some place at our rooms is so disgusting that I think our guest has to report it immediately , because we check you in early and the issue was addressed at the check out time next day it is not easy for us to fix the problems for that reason we only gave you $20.00 back because it was to late for us to find out about the spot of the blood at the wall , my housekeeper went to the room as you mentioned to the front desk the next morning and she found the blood spot wasn't dry. We usually provided for a room with one bed 2 towels, 3 hand towel and 3 wash cloths but if our guest need more towels just has to call the front desk and we provide it. And I have to tell you that the toilet seat was fine. At your check out you only mentioned the incident with the blood at the wall we didn't know until I read your comment today that you had issue with the toilet seat and with our towels. If our guest report any incident at the rooms we have to check it because we need to find out what of my housekeepers cleaned the room and we have to take a action for fix the problem and prevent similar or different issues to happen again to our futures guest. Please accept our apologize. Thank you,

This hotel is very close to the freeway entry/exit so may be a little noisy for some, but it didn't bother us at all. Short drive to downtown and the Boardwalk. Rooms were very clean and there was a g... more
