THE OWNER CANCELLED OUR RESERVATION 2 DAYS BEFORE OUR ARRIVAL. She said she has the right to refuse service to anyone. We had been staying at this hotel before she purchased it and every year the price goes up and the service gets worse. I have never had a hotel cancel my reservation 2 days before my arrival. In the... More

Chose the Beach Street in for a last minute trip up the coast and we were so pleasantly surprised by what an enjoyable stay we had. Service is great, you can't beat the location and the complimentary morning coffee is not to shaby! The hotel doesn't look like much from the street but the rooms are clean, newly remodeled, with...

This was our 4th time staying at Beach Street. We stayed in ocean view room 206. You are directly across from the pier and down the street from the Boardwalk. Everything is in walking distance so we did not use our car for three days ! Kids (teenagers) can go to the Boardwalk and beach while you lounge at the... More

This is the nicest place and has the best location in Santa Cruz. In between the pier and Boardwalk, beach is right here and places to eat are downstairs. The staff is very helpful, walls are thick, couldn't hear the baby crying next door unless we went out to the terrace, and windows were open. We had front suite, all... More

From the minute I called to book rooms, to the minute we checked out, the staff was awesome. Had two connecting rooms (205 & 204) which worked out great for my family of 5 (2 adults & 3 kids). The rooms were clean, fresh and looked like they were straight out of a interior design magazine. Locations was another plus... More

We stayed by the pool - no kitchentte or ocean view. Although the location is great and the rooms are recently updated, there were numerous issues that we couldn't overlook, especially given the price. - lack of curtains, and upper windows with no shades meant that our room never got dark - light directly outside our room meant our room...

Second stay at Beach Street Inn. I'm a fan. Great location. I think all rooms have full or mini kitchens - mine was a full kitchen. The only annoying thing was one of the window shutters would not stay closed... so people could look in even when you are trying to be private. Had to wedge something in to keep... More

Superb location virtually right on the beach. Staff very friendly and room perfect for our short stay - would have stayed longer if we had known how good Santa Cruz was. We only stayed one night as we were on a road trip. Definitely a place to revisit and spend more time chilling out.

My husband and I stayed here for one night in May. The plan was to spend the day at the boardwalk but because of the rain everything was closed. We stayed in the ocean view deluxe veranda king, and the room was nice with a little kitchen and double shower heads. Be aware that with these rooms there is no... More

This hotel is a perfect location if you are wanting to stay close to the boardwalk. Located directly across the street from the Boardwalk, Beach and the Santa Cruz O Pier. Rooms are comfortable and recently renovated with a nice beach theme. We were in an ocean view room which was great.. Easily hear the waves at night even with... More
