The Beach View Inn is located just a few minutes by the Beach and pier of Santa Cruz, and the location is the only reason to choose this motel. The rroms was quite large, but the standard is old fashion and uncomfortabke. There was a dead bug (looked like a Roach) between the two layers of the window, and a... More

Terrible, unprofessional service. Man at the counter had me so angry. DO NOT give these people your information unless you have solidified your prices. We felt lied to. He gave us a price 10 minutes prior to rescind it trying to get us to pay more. When we tried to discuss this with him, he then refused us the room... More

This hotel is very basic and simple. No special ammenities, just a place to crash for the night. My son and I were on a California Coastal tour and spent a day/night on the Santa Cruz Boardwalk. We arrived about noon and were checked in quickly even though our room was not ready yet. The gentlemen we worked with was... More

Basic motel with friendly service. Location makes this place-- quick walk to the wharf, boardwalk and beach. Definitely could use some upgrades (chairs were too stained and scary to sit on), but we weren't in Santa Cruz to sit in our room. Was happy to find the Beach View Inn over a busy holiday weekend.

we stayed one night here, midweek and have to say that it was very clean, comfortable and a great location for walking a very short distance(less than a block) to the wharf, boardwalk and beach. The staff was very friendly, check in was a breeze and there was plenty of off street parking within the motel property. I would stay... More

Close to pier which is brilliant. Heather is lovely. Room clean but bed very old, lumpy and noisy. Blanket had holes in it, pillows hard and towels threadbare. No soaps or anything so bring your own. Air con didn't work much and was noisy, curtains did not block any light and breakfast was, well, not.

Beach View Inn is only a couple of minutes walk from the beach, wharf and Santa Cruz Boardwalk. We also had a good view of the Pacific from our room - which wasn't bad. Can't beat the location. Our room was comfortable and clean - while the staff was friendly. We didn't mind the hotel being a bit basic -... More

You can't beat this location. Short walking distance to beach and wharf. Great value. It's not a Hyatt, but you're not paying Hyatt prices. Had a problem with the air conditioner....front desk personnel quickly moved us to another room.

The location was perfect but the rooms are a little outdated. They need new comfortable beds, new paint, and maybe a little more to choose from with the complimentary breakfast-like fruit. Overall a very nice stay due to Heather being so bubbly and smiley.

Don't stay here. The motel is as bad as any could be. Very poor quality furniture, old and stained, torn and dirty. The bed was small and broken down. We could find no beach view from any where on the property. The price at 170 a night was theft. The room was not worth 50 bucks. On the plus side... More
