After a bumper-to-bumper Labor Day ride to come over Rt 17 for what was to be a day trip, I decided it'd be fun to stay in Santa Cruz for the night. I found the Super 8 as it had a friendly clean street appeal (hanging baskets and such), and has an amazing proximity to beach, boardwalk, and restaurants (but just enough away to not hear or feel the crowds). I didn't even have to think about if to take a sweatshirt for the incoming night air since it's only 2ish blocks back to the room for any needs. It all made for a great stay. The owners take obvious pride in their business and warmly welcome and accommodate their guests. Now, if they could do something to make the holiday traffic drive back over 17 easier--but if I asked, I bet they'd try!!
