    Great location only a short walk to the ocean. Room was very clean and comfortable. Linens on the bed could be cleaned a bit better, especially the pillows. They smelled like they weren't washed or didn't have protective covers under the pillow cases changed every stay. Same goes for the sheets. Aside from that, it is a really nice facility. I will stay again.

    Everything was wonderful, except the beds!

    We arrived pretty late but the inn keeper stayed in touch with us to make sure we would be able to get in our room ok (the office closes at 10pm). She was very nice and helpful. The cottage was more than we expected and more than accommodated our big family of 7. We were pleased with everything... the 2 TVs, 3 beds, pull out couch, nice bathroom, and it even had a full kitchen! However, the beds were so uncomfortable we may never come back. They were hard as a rock and prevented most of us from getting a good night’s sleep. Also, we found a cricket in the bathroom and an ant in one of the beds (not a dealbreaker but my 11 year old was not happy). Before we slept we were thinking to book for a summer trip but now are rethinking because can’t imagine sleeping on those beds again.

    Very cute inn right by the ocean. The rooms are very nicely decorated and were clean when we got there. Also very dog friendly and the kitchenette was super convenient since we didn‘t want to sit outside in the cold with our dog for dinner. The deck is great and you can see the ocean from there. It has a gas bbq as well. Location is good if you‘re looking for something a bit more secluded like we were. There are a few restaurants and a Starbucks close by and downtown Santa Cruz is about a 10 minute drive. Staff were all very friendly and even gave us cookies for our pooch and tips on what to do in the area. Some cons: I have mobility issues, so getting around on the property was a bit tough. It‘s on a very steep hill and has stairs leading up to the office. The beach has no walkway to get in, you have to climb over rocks. Although this isn’t the hotel‘s fault, as it’s a public beach. While the room was clean when we got there, housekeeping could have done a bit of a better job while we were there. At the end of our stay we had a pretty dirty floor, even though we were careful to take our shoes off outside and shake and sand off our clothes.
