We stayed one night in this hotel and loved it. The rooms are newly remodeled and the ones facing the bay have an awesome view of the pier, boardwalk, sand volleyball courts and the bay. I was nervous that since we were right on the street, there may have been a lot of road noise, but that was not the... More

This is our third year in a row staying here Dec 23-24 and it now has become an annual tradition for our family. The Beach Street Inn is simple, yet very comfortable and welcoming. The rooms we chose faced the ocean with large, expansive decks and lounge chairs to enjoy watching the sunset with a glass of wine, or waking... More

We stayed during New Year's eve weekend. This inn is a great find, a gem! And in a great location too! The inn has plenty of ocean-facing rooms. It also has a number of suites that can fit up to 6 guests. The views from the rooms are fantastic. You can see the beach, from the boardwalk on the left... More

Our room had a microwave, fridge, sink and a few dishes. TV had a lot of channels and was very large. The bathroom... More

We are a family of 5 and the Beach street Inn and Suites was fantastic. The staff was very helpful with ideas for 11 - 16 year old children. They told us about getting up at 6:30 am to see the sunset. It was incredible and a highlight for our trip. Thank you for such a Wonderful stay in your... More

While staying here over a winter break with my kids, I had an unexpected work related issue pop up. Morgan (asst mgr) went above and beyond to support me and provided fantastic customer service! I would definitely come back again

Our experience at the Beach Street Inn this weekend just could not have been better! I reserved our room directly through their site a month ago and they followed up with a phone call last week to confirm our arrangements. Nice touch. Check-in was flawless and much to our surprise we were upgraded to a larger suite. Really nice touch!... More

I stayed at the Beach Street Inn & Suites this last weekend and enjoyed it immensely from check-in to check-out. Their staff took the time to inform me of my surroundings along with recommending some nice restaurants in the area. I was also pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness and quality of my guest room. The fireplace, big and beautiful bathroom... More

As a Hilton Diamond member, I don't venture away from the brand unless it can be beat in certain locations. This was a hands down decision to break the Hilton bond and stay at the Beach Street Inn and Suites. No regrets at all! We had a direct view of the pier/wharf. We could walk to Gilda's on the pier,... More

The best place to stay if visiting the beautiful Santa Cruz, right on the beach, across from the pier and close to nice restaurants. 5 minute walk to Boardwalk, it looked fab but only open on the weekend off season and we stayed midweek! Our room was lovely, 2 double beds, basic kitchen and very spacious shower room with huge... More
