The staff was lovely and accommodating. We had a poolside room that was very large with lots of drawer space. The room was nicely decorated and actually looks like the photos on their website - a rarity indeed! We drank our morning coffee in the big Adirondack chairs around the pool. We slept with the window open and felt safe... More

Super clean property and suites. Lovely costal theme. Everything completely renovated. Would change nothing. Huge shower, big rooms. The poolside was by far the quiet zone. The ocean view rooms had great beach views from their balconies but seemed more active. Adored the colorful adirondack chairs throughout the property. The Inn is right immediately proximal to the wharf/pier. So close... More

We wanted some beach time and this place fit the bill. From the beachy room keys to the adorable rooms, this place was awesome. The view was fantastic, we could hear the ocean waves and an occasional sea lion from our room. The wharf is literally steps away.the office staff was very helpful with restaurant and other local information. The... More

We made a 2-night stop here over Spring Break with my two teenage daughters to visit UC Santa Cruz. It was a good choice. Rooms are clean, remodeled, cute beach theme, great bathrooms. Pay more for the view rooms, it's worth it, even if you do have a shared balcony. I have also stayed at the Sea and Sand Inn... More

Decided, last minute, to stay a night. Friendly staff, nice suite with beach view, the kids loved the Murphy beds. We're definitely planning to book here for our next trip, just the wife and i, next month, same suite.

We arrived late at the Beach Street Inn and the reception was closed with a sign back in 10 minutes. The lady from reception was putting the covers on the swimming pool. It took her ages! and she could see us waiting at the reception door to get in, i would have thought she would have been able to come... More

I'm always the most disappointed to hear about a bad experience when it is service related. We pride ourselves on providing an excellent experience to every guest, and I'm sad to hear that we missed so badly for you. I will address these issues and hope to get the chance to prove our commitment to service in the future. More

This is an old property that has been renovated and re-done as a boutique style single story hotel. So, yes, at one time, this may have met the description of a motel... BUT we loved the place! There are several buildings, two that flank the pool and several that "step" down toward the ocean, with the better ocean views. The... More

We were very impressed with our stay at Beach Street Inn. Our room was recently renovated and had an amazing double headed shower, travertine tile, very custom look. Microwave, flat panel, fridge, hairdryer, and adirondack chairs outside our room all were very nice touches. Staff were extremely helpful right down to the cleaning lady. The free bag of salt water... More

Our family of four (including two children) stayed at the Beach Street Inn and Suites for 5 nights over Spring Break. Prices were a little high for rooms, but it was to be expected given the timing of our trip. The hotel was easy to find, and the proximity to the beach and the boardwalk was perfect! We only took...

It was cute, but very expensive, considering that we had no view. The wifi did not work at all! We were unable to do any research or book anything via computer. The pool was cold, the icemaker was spotty. They were adding a new building, so construction woke us up at 8. The location was good. The bathrooms were nice,... More
