TravelPod Member ReviewsTorch Lite Inn Santa Cruz
This motel is on a central location to the city centre and the boardwalk. The accomodation is comfortable and clean. The owner manager needs to learn how to be nice to people, he was extremely unfriendly and I wonder why he is in this area of business. He is the only place in America that wouldn't take our travel card as payment (which is just as good as cash) and then when paid in full still demanded a cash deposit. We overheard conversations with other people which was as unfriendly. I wouldn't return due to how rude he was! Beware.

It looks straight on the map she says!!!!! So we turned of at Greenfield along the Carmel Valley Road. 2.5 hours later after 4375 curves and switchbacks we arrived at ...
... a little nap because i was tired. Still no answer from my friend so I didn't know what else to do. The nights in the camper were getting super cold so bundling up with a few layers and enclosing myself with a sleeping bag with three or four blankets on top was becoming the norm. The next day was slow but I finally got moving and went to check out downtown Monterey. Definitely a cute little area with a few different coffee shops to choose from. ...
... midnight doughnuts, walks through rose-lined sidewalks, warm nighttime bike rides to wooden picnic tables at our favorite bars, brunch-time Portlandia madness, dharma teatime, queer dance revolution, 4th of July football in firework tornadoes, Shpongle celebrations with a splash of hot springs on the side, Hawaii reunion in the golden hills of Santa Cruz reminding me that love is absolutely present with voices that have been in the distance, roller coasters with falling views of the ...
