Very friendly and helpful staff. Great location with great views of the pier and beach. Parking is free and close to the room. All rooms overlook the beach road but because this is not a main through route there was very little noise at night. Really enjoyed our stay. Only negative no tea/coffee in the room. Coffee was provided free... More

Just looking for a place in an advantageous location for only one night. The renovations to the hotel are really nice and made it great for what we needed and the price. Woke up to a gorgeous view of the beach and no outside noise really in spite of being on the 1st level facing the street. It's not luxury,... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. The room and the bathroom were spacious and squeaky clean. The room is equipped with microwave oven and coffee maker. Got a bag of complimentary saltwater taffy in the room. Great location, just 5 minutes walk to the wharf and 10 minutes walk to the boardwalk.

We stayed here over Halloween night because of the great location to the beach (directly across the street) and downtown (short walk). The rooms are very nice. Ours had a shared balcony overlooking the water, wharf, and the volleyball courts on the beach. Great staff, comfortable beds, great rooms!! This place would definitely get 5 stars if it wasn't for... More

Arriving earlier than the suggested check in time we were able have our room allocated straight away. The reception staff were... More

We are a young family of four, including a toddler and a young child, that traveled to California for family vacation. We booked an Ocean View Deluxe Veranda room for 6 nights. I would say that what we experienced during our stay at Beach Street Inn & Suites would keep us from coming back again. Pros: Location, location, location! This... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to give us feedback. Online reviews are an integral piece in our search for perfection. I am sorry to hear that your Santa Cruz vacation was not everything we could have made it. Being directly across the street from a popular beach does sometimes have drawbacks, and I apologize that they were... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The view from our room - sea facing - off the parking lot & swimming pool area - was spectacular. As you walk into the room you are struck by the airy feel and light beach atmosphere as well as the view from every aspect of the room as well as the... More

I stayed here for 2 nights to celebrate my 56th birthday & to get away from home & responsibilities. This place exceeded my expectations and I will definitely be back. When checking in, the girl that helped us was sweet, friendly & helpful. I stayed in a room on the veranda (202) and it was awesome. After getting my key,... More
