Loved everything about this property. We would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Santa Cruz. The room was nice as well as clean. The view was awesome! Staff were very accommodating. Property restaurant had good food and service. The Dream Inn is a great place to stay!

We are glad we returned to the Dream Inn! The renovation is great and lobby is lovely. Poolside was peaceful and not crowded (mid-week). We enjoyed an automatic upgrade when our room wasn't ready for us.

Our favorite place to stay in Santa Cruz! Every room has a great view and the location is close to everything we want to see and do. Every member of the staff from housekeeping to the front desk to the valet/bell service areas are friendly and helpful.

Great location-- lots of fun, walk to great food and the boardwalk. The room views are amazing!! Fall asleep listening to the surf-- that's a vacation!! 2 year old Kylie Joy had her first Boardwalk adventure and loved it. Can't wait to come back.

Dustin Ghormley stood out as an excellent employee as he checked us in at the reception desk, as well as checked us out upon departing. Dan smart did a great job in reserving a room for us. This was our first hotel stay as a couple. It was a wonderful, memorable hotel stay with a gorgeous ocean setting. Thank you!

We loved this place. Felt like a tropical resort - pool with a wall to block the ocean breeze, tropical drinks and food available poolside, ocean-view (I think from all rooms). Friendly staff, clean, unique decor. Absolutely will go back.

This is going to be my home away from home when I'm trying to escape the busy life of SF. Each room comes with its own balcony that overlooks the beach and reminds me of Hawaii. The pool and the jacuzzi really are a plus! Staff was very accommodating. We even got upgraded to a bigger room. Also they have...

Very lovely and relaxing. Enjoyed sitting at the pool and the beautiful room. The restaurant was excellent, but the chairs needed cushions to be comfortable! Would definitely stay there again. The valet service was excellent. The front desk with Omar was great!! We were very pleased.

The service was great, the pool was great, the views were great. Can't wait to go back there. I had my 3 yr old daughter with me and the staff was very accommodating to her. The restaurant had a good kids menu and crayons for her to color. Just a great place to be.

“maybe it's quieter on up top I don't now but all rooms are on the beach side and traffic is on the other so I can't see how you could miss!”
