"“The best deal on the water in Santa Cruz area” Small, charming, old property is being modernized. Yet room rates are still half most others'. Each room has a balcony that looks down over Capitola Beach. Most rooms are studios and the old showers are very small but the renovated rooms really get it right. Out your door and 3 minutes to the esplanade ...10 minute walk to East Cliff Drive and the surfing. The wharf is 100 yards to the right. This is about the best place to hang out when visiting Santa Cruz - you never need to drive anywhere. If you are looking for an amazing deal in a clean and modest package in the very best location then this is your place."

"This will be I and my sister's 20th consecutive year staying at the Harbor Lights - mostly in room 106. We stay Fri., Sat., & Sun., of the Wharf to Wharf weekend. Have met some great folks who stay the same weekend and we've become wonderful friends. I've recommended so many people to stay here over the years and always described it as my funky little beach motel! Love it."

"Best place to stay in the Village! Fresh new look for this hidden treasure! You can see the beach and Montery Bay from every room. Open your sliding glass doors and feel the wonderful ocean breeze and enjoy the clean ocean air! Such a relaxing place!"

"The best little gem at the beach! I've been coming here since 1996, and it is always my first destination around my birthday. It's a special little Motel with the perfect vibe of beachtown charm. It's low key, clean, spacious and the best view of the Bay. I love to be able to walk out the door and be at a restaurant within two minutes. Can't wait to come back!"

"My family and I have been staying continuously at the Harbor Lights motel for the last 40+ years and love it! The owners and staff are very nice, the rooms are comfortable, and it's in a great location close to the Wharf and nice restaurants. I also love the most recent renovations to the motel. We will continue to return to this wonderful place to enjoy a piece of heaven every now and then."
