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!!

Absolutely love it here. Centrally located for us, we walk to the wharf for dinner, walk downtown for shopping, quick drive to Capitola or north towards Davenport for awesome beaches and hiking trails. Our favorite place to stay on the coast!

The bed was comfy. Didn't think about air conditioning because of the season. Would probably take one of the upper story rooms with a private balcony when I go again.
