    We LOVE the Sea & Sand! Clean, great location, would recommend to anyone! Staff is super friendly and helpful, breakfast is more than adequate, evening wine & cheese. We’ve stayed 3 times and each time we like it more than the last!!

    I think this is the best place to stay in Santa Cruz. The rooms and views are awesome. I appreciate the breakfast, cookie hour, and wine and cheese two hours. The staff works hard to make your staff enjoyable.

    Can't wait to go back - in fact we have made 2018 reservations already! The staff is friendly and helpful, the setting is just lovely and very walk-able to everything we want to do while there. Good value for our money in the off season.

    I'm afraid the Sea & Sand does not allow pets. You might want to contact Visit Santa Cruz County for suggestions on pet-friendly hotels in the area.
