Dear Violy Thank you so much for staying with us and for taking the time to review Continental Inn. I agree, our location is fantastic! Easy walking distance to all of the fun stops in Santa Cruz. Downtown is a short walk from our property and the beach is close by too! The Continental Inn is staffed 24 hours a day. I imagine at 7am our front desk person may have been doing quick rounds on the property or another short activity. We will review our policies with our staff and make sure everyone is following procedure. Thanks again! Please visit us again if you find yourself back in Santa Cruz! Warmly,
