We really enjoyed our stay. It's a good value with a very friendly and helpful staff. The room was beautifully renovated with amazing attention to decor detail, many on the side of luxury. Nice little kitchenette. Huge bath bathroom with double shower. It was clean and comfortable with great views from our window and the veranda, of the beach, municipal...

This location is perfect. Everything is within walking distance; the ward, the boardwalk, restaurants, shops etc. The people at the front desk are very courteous and helpful. We changed our mind on a room and it was no problem for them. We have stayed there a handful of times in the past two years. This past time we stayed up...

We stayed here as two adults, a 3yo and baby. This is a lovely spot and was a great place to unwind after a busy few weeks. I even got some pool time by myself while the baby slept inside the unit a couple of metres away. Spic and span, freshly renovated. spacious bathroom, nice toiletries. Right by the beach...

We stayed here with our two daughters aged 18 and 16 and shared a single room with two doubles. Plenty of room for us all and nice bathroom. Literally a couple of minutes onto the beach. Great cafe located right underneath the Inn, food and drink delicious. Would go back again.

I recently stayed at the Beach Street Inn & Suites with my family. There were 6 of us & a new born. I rented the 2 bedroom suite. Overall we had an amazing time! The location was ideal! We spent one day at the Boardwalk, went to the wharf several times, walked downtown, hung out on the beach. All in...

Thank you so much for your feedback. We're always happy to hear another Santa Cruz vacation success story! We find that many of our vacationers come from fairly close, sometimes it feels like Santa Cruz is a bit of a Californians' secret. I'm sorry to hear that not everyone got a great night's sleep while you were here. Sofa beds...

Outstanding place to stay. Ocean view is stellar, great patio overlooking beach with comfortable lounge chairs. Hotel is close to beach, boardwalk and pier, within walking distance of great restaurants. Rooms are clean and service is excellent. Great customer service by staff. Have been there several times and will return there on all our trips to the area. Chuck Smith...

Our travel agent suggested this place and we were so glad we took her advice. My husband was a little worried when we drove up, but we were pleasantly surprised. We were checked in by a nice young man who suggested Fire Fish Grill on the pier for dinner, and again good advice. The updated room was charming, clean and...

We loved hearing about your stay. Santa Cruz is a natural stopover for any trip down the Pacific coast. We are happy to provide updated and comfortable accommodations. Again, thank you for your patronage, and with any luck we'll see you the next time you make it to California.

We were looking for a weekend get away to take some family members and an 18 month old baby and discovered Beach Street Inn. It is way terrific if you are looking for a super clean & updated place, close to the beach (across the street), and just a total Americana experience. The rooms were clean and sweet, the beds...

We stayed here for one night and booked the hotel very last minute. The people at the front desk was nice enough to give us to their ocean front room for the same price as the pool side room. We really, really, appreciated that! Our room was very clean, crisp, had a comfy king size bed, a kitchenette equipped with...
