Poor upkeep, service and cleanliness

The Motel Santa Cruz was a horrid experience; from the shabby maintenance of the building to the strange sticky mess on my supposedly cleaned bathroom floor at check-in. Neither a coffeemaker or a fridge was in my room. In short the Motel Santa Cruz is a great option if you enjoy paying top-dollar for utterly disgusting rooms.

A Scary Place!

Sadly put,the Motel Santa Cruz, located in Santa Cruz, California is a place to be avoided at all costs! Their low life clients were running around the exterior, loud music was playing from several rooms, not to mention that it is located on a very busy corner with loud traffic noise. Better accomodations were found less than a mile away.
