I finally got a chance to sleep in.. Wayne even went down and got my breakfast. We set off finally to find the real Santa Cruz not the horrible, noisey stuff. We walked along the riverbank in reasonable temperature of 30+ till we reached the town centre. It has 1 main street with lovely trees and cafes scattered along it. Found a great local coffee …

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.
