    Nice stay

    We had a nice sized room and it was comfortable and quiet. They have a dog run to take out the dogs. Great location to all the beautiful sites in Santa Cruz.

    Good all round experience

    Remodeled, good beds and friendly staff. Our room was quiet enough near the pool but heard the door slam to another room at 2 am. Small alley off the parking lot made a sweet dog room too. Half refrigerator, good coffee maker and microwave means you don’t have to eat every meal out. Dog beach a short drive stairs down to a no leash beach are just past the lighthouse north of the hotel. All around great stay for us and doggie.

    Great clean, quiet place

    Made same day reservations. Friendly staff. Easy check in. Love that they recycle/reuse the plastic room cards. Only con is the tight parking.

    This stay was mediocre. Nothing about the hotel stood out, and nothing was dissatisfying either. Pet rooms have hard wood floors which is nice and they are all on the bottom floor. The beds were pretty high off the ground, so if your doggo is not a great jumper, you may need to assist them up. There was a nice size fenced area off the parking lot for your buddy to relieve themself, waste bags provided at entrance. No special attention or treatment for pets. No bowls, treats, etc were provided so make sure you have all your pet needs!

    Great location

    Excellent location. All staff were extremely friendly. Well organized with printed information on which restaurants were pet friendly and how to get to pet friendly beach which is about a 15 walk. You can drive but parking limited.

    Great location walking to pier

    Nice, clean place. Fair for the money with great location. The fridge and microwave were great for use in my dog’s homecooked diet. Courteous staff. The room with a single bed - is a bit small - it is a double bed. But everything was comfortable

    Great dog Friendly Hotel

    Room was great size and clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. Not a lot of places will welcome 2 100lbs dogs without question. The pet deposit was reasonable and service exemplary.
