We had a great stay, the room was really nice and spacious and contained a small kitchen area with a large fridge. The hotel couldn't be closer to the beach, you can be standing on the sand with 15 seconds of leaving the premises! It has a nice pool which was empty whenever we went to it and the staff... More

When we arrived we found our room requested had been changed without being asked if it was OK. They upgraded the room but we were interested in the view in the original room requested. There were a few small problems with the new room but management was quick to fix them. Wish there was coffee in the room. Also no... More

Nice location. The people in the office and on the property were very helpful and nice. It is pricey but that's what you pay for what has to be the best location in Santa Cruz. The beach is right infront of you the boardwalk is about 100 yards away and the city pier is across the street. Location location.

Our family stayed here for 3 nights in early August. The location was great. Easy walking distance to the beach, boardwalk and wharf. Also, not too bad of a walk to Downtown. Lots of restaurant/shopping/bar options nearby. We stayed in a poolside room that was fairly quiet and very clean, with a large bathroom. The only negatives were the beds... More

Beach Street Inn and Suites is one of the best hotels in Santa Cruz, conveniently located within walking distance to the main attractions. The newly built Veranda suits are awesome. The only inconvenience is parking - insufficient, and pretty tight spots - but this is more of a Santa Cruz specific thing. And by the way, the coffee is awesome... More

We come every year! We are a big family. Love the rooms, always clean. Staff really nice, Jessica at check in time gave us great recommendations for dinner. We are already planning next years!!! Close to the beach, the Boardwalk and easy to downtown Santa Cruz. Having a kitchen so helpful.

I loved it last time and this summer it was just as great. They have been doing even more renovations. I stayed in a different type of room this time. I had my grandson with me so I wanted to be near the pool. I was amazed at how quite it was at night. I wasn't in one of the... More

My daughter and I have been traveling California for about 2 weeks, so when we arrived we were exhausted. The check in was very quick! Staff was very friendly! Rooms were clean and updated! Beautiful views! Everything was beyond amazing! The beds were nice and clean. The kitchenette was great to place some of the food we brought from restaurant.... More

Why am I giving the Beach Street Inn five stars even though it's expensive, the wi-fi is terrible, and the coffee is meh? Because I love it. The setting is so spectacular, the staff is so friendly, and the location is so great, they deserve it. The neighborhood is loud and touristy, but the Inn is a perfect little self... More

The view is wonderful and the room is nice. But in my opinion, for what you pay for, value for money is lacking. You really do not get anything more other than a "nice" room, location and a great view. The room is three star plus quality. Nothing wrong with the room but again, check the price. Housekeeping is not... More
