Had a wonderful stay! The view from the deck is gorgeous! Close to everything - the boardwalk is literally across the street. Will be back next year. The deli downstairs has yummy pastries! Recommend Beach Street Suites & Inns.

We have stayed at the Beach Street a handful of times over the past two years with our family of 5. The staff is always courteous and helpful. In fact this last time Morgan came to our room and installed a temporary drawbridge on the door so our adventurous two year old couldn't open and close the door a million... More

Great service from the front desk. We arrived very early in the morning to beat the San Jose commuters. Shelby allowed me to rent one of the bikes so my girls and I could ride the bikes to the pier and down past the boardwalk. And she called me to let me know when the room was available to check...

Stayed in suite 502 (Cabana Suite) over a long weekend. Pleasantly surprised at how well it was laid out. 2 adults and 4 young kids (all under 8 yrs old), and we did not feel cramped at all. We parked the car and did not have to drive the entire weekend. The hotel staff was polite and helpful from the... More

This place in nice, nestled right on the beach with amazing views of the ocean. What a positive atmosphere, folks dancing at the club below and many playing volleyball on the beach; what a pleasant and comfortable feeling. remodeled. older building but beautifully remodeled. A great getaway for those who love the ocean (and who doesn't?).

My husband and I were in suite 501. The room was totally soundproof. The decor in blue and white was soothing. Everything we needed had been thought of. There was more than adequate storage space and we loved the silver sea star handles on the drawers. The shower was massive and beautiful. The sconces on either side of the bed... More

We spent one night at the Beach Street Inn after dropping our daughter at college. The view and location were very nice. The walls are not very soundproof so the noise next door of a party was very annoying. The room was clean and well appointed. The price was very high, for what we got.
