    Dirty with pummeling issues

    We stayed here a couple years ago and I remember it having a problem with cleanliness. Now it is even worse. I tested positive for covid while staying at the hotel. Upon leaving i told the lady with the weird eyebrows at the front desk to make sure it was better cleaned out because i was sick. She could’ve cared less! The bathtub nossel was coming undone and leaked the entire time we were there. Also there was a plastic bag over the smoke detector? Further evidence staff dont check the rooms once guests leave. This will be the last time we stay. The owners are slumlords apparently.

    No frills

    Hotel was conveniently located for both beach and downtown. Rooms were functional but noisy with very thin walls! Reception staff made little effort to help above the bare minimum. Room was not serviced during our stay despite it being available.

    Dirty and Unenjoyable

    Unexpected fees, the room had previous renters trash stuck to the door (deodorant sticker), the bathroom was leaking consistently, the bathroom sink was clogged, I found a blood stain on one of the pillows and I caught pink eye after the first night staying there. On top of it, the owners are always watching making the experience less enjoyable because it feels like you’re being babysat. Would not recommend this hotel to anyone. It’s so much more ran down than it looks like I’m the photos.

    Lots of parking space to walk to the beach

    Very clean, nice pillows, lots of parking which it’s a luxury in Sabra Cruz, and walking distance to the beach, definitely recomendable place to stay the next visit.

    Hotel was very nice. Needs some minor upgrades to the bathroom and walls. Balconies were great and very roomy. Could have used a few extra blankets. But overall it worked out great for us.

    Excellent location

    I stayed for 3 nights and it was myself and 3 buddies. The room was clean and spacious. The price was affordable for my budget and i was happy with the location of the hotel in Santa Cruz since it was close to everything i wanted to be nearby.
