As previously mentioned the location is perfect with the wharf right in front of you and across the road. Outside the suites is a small deck with chairs where you can sit and enjoy the view and around the corner you'll find a cute little lunch spot 'The Picnic Basket' and not too far down the road the family-friendly and...

This was a very nice place to stay we were only able to stay one night, mostly because of rates ($234 w/tax) but for the area wasn't bad. Didn't care for the steps required to get down to the beach (3 flights I think) I've had both knees replaced.

The Beach Street Inn and Suites sits at a perfect location. The Wharf or Pier is directly in front of you as you look out from the shared balcony. Walk down a flight or two of stairs and you are a short stroll to the SC Beach BoardWalk. Our room was on the second floor and was appointed with Beach... More

My family and I stayed here for the 4th of July holiday weekend. We had 4 rooms total for 3 nights each. We arrived at about noon and our rooms were not ready as of yet. But no big deal, we headed out to the wharf for lunch. The rooms were ready only about an hour later. The rooms were... More

This suite was gorgeous. Within walking distance of the beach. The staff is super friendly. We will definitely return. There was plenty of room for all 5 of us. The kitchen area was great. There's even an outdoor grill!

This was our first stay at the Beach Street Inn and we couldn't have been more pleased! The staff was very friendly and accommodating and even allowed us to check in early to our room. The room itself was equipped with a kitchen sink, microwave, refrigerator, and even plates and silverware. If you are looking for a hotel in Santa... More

Our favorite place to stay when we go to Santa Cruz with our family! We have stayed @ the Beach Street Inn three summers in a row & love it there. We love the poolside cabanas & the friendly beach feel of the property. My kids love the firepit for cooking s'mores at the end of the day! Great location... More

The best location in town and I guess this is what you are paying for. It was nice and service was friendly but it was considerably more expensive than the other hotels of similar standard that we stayed in during our trip.

Stayed here on the family's annual trip to Santa Cruz. We had an entire block of rooms to ourselves. You really can't beat the location. Its just a stone's throw away from the Boardwalk and Pier, and you can fall asleep to the sounds of the waves and wake up to the seals. The deck behind the ocean view rooms... More

The recent remodel of the Beach Street Inn and Suites is a great option if you are visiting Santa Cruz. My wife and I stayed here with our kids and upon pulling into the parking lot, you can literally park your car and never need to use it again for the duration of your stay. The inn is located right... More
