        Individual guest reviews

        • Family with children
          10.0

          Super easy access to the boardwalk. Rooms have been remodeled and beds are really comfy. My 8yr old daughter and I stayed for two nights during her spring break and never used the car once. Felt safe walking day and night. Maid service and front desk were really nice too.

        • Family with children
          8.8

          The staff was very accomodating and personable, even at half-past midnight. I was pleased that all the positive comments I read about this place is true. The rooms were clean, nice and comfortable. There were some comments about the not-so-nice neighborhood, but I didn't think it bad at all. The streets around the hotel were empty when we arrived shortly past midnight. Generally I'd expect to find more people wandering the streets. But it was quiet and peaceful. Parking was limited, but free street parking is available, even at metered spots, until 10am the following morning. For the price I paid, this hotel was a great value!

          Parking on hotel premise was limited. But free streeet parking, right next to the hotel, was available.

        • Family with children
          8.2

          The room was spacious, the decor was modern enough though not over the top, and everything was clean and fresh. It was enjoyable for the price.

          The hotel is on hotel row near the boardwalk, which means that it is in the seedier side of Santa Cruz. Don't get me wrong. Santa Cruz is not that seedy, but there were some questionable characters in the area.

        • Group of friends
          9.6

          The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and had everything we needed. Free brekkie in the morning was a bonus. The location was very close to both the beach and downtown.

          Nothing about the accommodation itself. If walkgin in the evening, the street lighting on the way downtown is a little poor, although the area did not feel unsafe

          The place was awful, there was no ligth in the room, not enough clean., the breakfast is the worst i ever eat...

        • Couple
          8.2

          The breakfast included was very reasonable and the room was spacious, very clean and a pleasure to stay in.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          the owners were very friendly and very helpful in recommending local restaurants and attractions. we chatted quite abit with them, they are very nice people. The motel was very close to the boardwalk, which was our main destination, but very quiet at night and the bed was extremely comfortable. good breakfast too. we would definitely recommend this Super 8 to anyone!

          actually Winlaw is in British Columbia , Canada

        • Older travelers
          9.4

          The best part about our stay was the couple who run this motel. Friendly, helpful, informative and always a smile. Can't beat this for the location and price.

          Parking got a bit crowded but were able to work through it.

        • Couple
          10.0

          Owners were very friendly and extremely helpful offering directions etc. Excellent location, v short walk to boardwalk/beach. Room clean and comfortable. A good pool area. Good value for money.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          We stayed during graduation weekend, and a heatwave which made for a very crowded city. The staff was vigilant about keeping parking spaces for guests, and was much appreciated. The traffic was horrible, as was the noise of the partying public, not guests.

        • Couple
          7.0

          Clean room, nice location - few minutes from the beach, free parking available. Comfortable bed with good pillows.

        • Couple
          8.2

          Traveling from San Deago to San Francisco we stayed in various hotels and even camped a few nights. Amazing the range that is to be seen from 50 - 120 per night. Yes, this the the range we paided along the way for hotels, of that range this hotel was these best of Alvin every way, clean, nice room, nice view, nice staff, late checkout (by half an hour) was no problem - overall just great. The surprising thing??? This hotel was in the lower section of the price range mentioned above! That is right folks, one of the cheapest, but by far the best! You cannot go wrong!

          Location, continental breakfast

          Hard to get WiFi. Owner/managers not always helpful.
