    The rooms were disgusting and dirty. There were stains on the blankets, walls and carpet. People were walking in and out and hanging on the balcony all night long. Then at 3am we heard people fighting and a women screaming and then the cops break into the next room and tackle a vicious man to the ground! Then the police knocked on my room asking me question about what we might of heard. This place is a very disgusting and a very scary place to stay. If I could get a refund for this place I would but I was told by the front desk that there is absolutely no refund. I got no sleep staying at the budget inn, my stay was horrible! I would never recomment this place to anyone.

    Disgusting room! What a pit! Carpet gross and buckled everywhere. Paint missing and patched with white holes everywhere. Lamps did not work. Shower gross and leaking. Manager needed access to our room to open a storage room within it to gather supplies. Gross!!!! Never even took my shoes off.

    It was walking distance to the Santa Cruz Board Walk

    The room smelled bad. I thought I was going to get sick from it. There were no soap, no ironing board and there was mold on the back door that led to a filthy walk way. I propped a chair against it to make sure no one can get in. The blind to the back door was bent and wouldn't close properly.

    I stay in over 80 hotels a year for business travel and by far the Budget Inn in Santa Cruz was the worst lodging I have ever experienced. Old, in poor condition (holes in walls, curtains ripped or missing, 40+ year old carpets, non-smoking rooms stink like cigarettes), impersonal, non-friendly staff. The furniture was so so bad we joked that if we had put it on the street with a "free" sign it would still be there - which says a lot in a cash-strapped college student town. This is not a hotel - it's a crack den and a place for newly paroled sex offenders. Caveat emptor - buyer beware.

    Sorry to tell you but the hotel was very low quality. When we went to check in at 5 the room was not ready. We had called earlier that day and it was supposed to be ready at 3. The room had old and broken fixtures and furnishings. No shades on two windows, the front curtain broken. I kept waiting for something to crawl out. Sleep on top of covers. There was only 2 small bars of soap. No ice, no ice bucket, no iron nor board even when asked for at front desk, no coffee. Price very high for no service and very low quality hotel. Smelled of smoke to the point we were coughing and it smelled like someone had lived there. I would remove this hotel from your program. I noticed that other guest were also unsatisfied with service.

    DelLocation.

    CheapHotels app booked me here & was glad to get a good rate & better location. Description is for $75/night Deluxe Queen Room, Non Smoking Spacious room includes a kitchen & dining room area for 2 people. When we check in we got room 115 & to our surprise it's one small room w/ a queen bed & bathroom. This is not what was on the description from my reservation. I asked the Manager what happened & he said that he booked someone already but he said he is willing to switch room. We checked the other room which is 120 & there is a couple staying there. The place smell already and they have their stuff inside. Manager said they are willing to switch & I told him if he is going to clean the room. He said it is the way it is. He gave us an option to switch or get a 25% discount & frustrated and tired we decided to stay at room 115. Our stay there was horrible. They didn't even provide shampoo, soap for us & the bath room was in a paddle after we used them and my friend thinks that there a leak at the base of the tub. One of the lamps are not working and the plug is loose. They only provided us with an electric fan. The manager's 13 y/o son is always answering the phone and he has a bad customer service. One time I called the hotel & his son answered the phone. I was asking for help and the son said "no one can help you because the Manager is not here, No one can help you tonight" What is going on with this hotel. The Manager gave us an extra free night stay and we agreed but we have to leave because it was a horrible feeling if we stay one more night. We need a refund for these horrible experience and I hope you can either correct this and not recommend to your prospective clients.

    It was a convenient walk to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk and the cheapest price I could find in all the surrounding areas. Other than that, absolutely no positives.

    Very run-down. Appeared to be more of a low-income housing facility. Very thin walls. Stains and hair in the bathroom. Burn holes in the comforter. Old and bunched up carpeting. Air freshener smelled as though it was masking whatever odor the place has.

    Words cannot describe how horrid this hotel is. The carpet was filthy and crumpled, there was hair on the bathroom walls, the towels had stains and the room was crammed with stained, broken furniture someone left on the curb. To add to the experience, there was a shooting in front of the hotel the night we arrived and a loud couple kept us up the second night. Unless you are really dying to have the "bad hotel" experience, steer clear of this place.

    It was walking distance to the Santa Cruz boardwalk. Also, the room felt more like an apartment than a hotel room. It was a nice surprise.

    The Price , Location And Clean Room

    The best thing was the list of instructions on what not to do, prominantly placed in the room, and instructed to read it before you booked in.

    This was a pretty filthy place. Shower was grimey and stained. There were holes in the wall that were stuffed with toilet paper. Cardboard taped to the wall etc. Carpets were shiney. If you stay here bring flip flops to wear wherever you would usually go bearefoot.

    Hotel staff was not friendly at all! Check in was at 3 and I had to wait a whole hour until my room was ready! They didn't even start cleaning until I got there!!!! It was a hot day & there was no Ac unit. They only provided a fan. It was the day of my boyfriends birthday & we weren't able to enjoy our stay! Never again. They really look up to their name, budget!

    location is very good. efforts to avoid squalor are clearly made, but the property is not in the best repair. it's a cheap motel--expectations have to be realistic.

    The manager is rude... its costs a lot for the rooms to look as poor as they do... it looks like all the appliances were just thrown together...
