Fodor's Review

Family-run, friendly, and funky, this basic but sparkling-clean lodge offers exceptional value just a few blocks from Santa Cruz Harbor and Twin Lakes Beach. Rooms come in various sizes, shapes, and configurations in two separate buildings—most have armoires and fans, and some have cozy breakfast nooks and writing areas. When booking, ask about the bathroom situation—some rooms have tubs, but others only have showers, and three rooms in the main building share a bathroom. Owner-innkeepers Chris and Clare Finelli have furnished each room with unusual tables and other pieces acquired over two decades.
