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... More

This is the 2nd time we have stayed here and the renovations they have made are the best!! Luxury to the hilt. We celebrated my daughters birthday here for the weekend. We live only 1/2 hour away but love spending weekends at the beach. The suite we had was perfect to acomadate 4 girls and my husband. Huge shower, spacious... More

Santa Cruz has a relaxed vibe about it. The same could be be said about the Beach Street Inn and Suites, which when you add a good dose of friendliness, a superb location ("Steps from the beach" is pretty accurate, the Boardwalk is a few minutes stroll away, and the Picnic Basket downstairs is great and it delivers), and very...

I don't think you can beat this location & quality. Our room was beautiful, our bathroom was huge (room 514). Our son loved the pool. The beach and boardwalk are literally down the stairs. The staff and especially Morgan was very helpful. A few things that could be improved - we had to go out by the reception area to... More

Great location, parked the car and was able to walk to wharf, Boardwalk, and beach. Clean room, great decor! Will definitely be staying here again. The view was amazing! could hear the sea lions and wave crashing throughout the night, so relaxing.

Great place, friendly attentive employees made me feel welcome. Excellent location, the fire pit is fantastic on a cool coastal evening. Easily walkable to both the boardwalk and the wharf. Clean and comfortable. Will recommend to friends.

My family of 4 stayed in one of the street level rooms with beach view in August for 4 nights. The location was great- right on the beach but still walkable to downtown. We were there Tuesday to Saturday and it definitely got busier as the week went on. So consider a different room if you want more quiet -... More

My second visit a year after first having stayed here was just as enjoyable. Perfect location. View of ocean. Quiet and friendly. Home away from home. Parking was good and the sea bridge with its restaurant (some very good) is in walking distance. Fine beach with Volley Ball courts.

Been staying here for many years. Most of the time we ask for the very front rooms that you can sit out on the deck and people watch. The only downfall for that is late at night you still have a little traffic,the train that comes right in front and the garbage trucks doing there thing. My suggestion is the... More

Booked this after reading its reviews op tripadvisor. Few weeks ago we checked it on google street view and that made us worry a bit, since it didnt look very nice. But when we arrived we were pleasantly surprised. I guess the street view pictures were from the old motel. It was absolutely amazing. Staff was very helpful, recommended some... More
