I chose this due to proximity to the pier and beach and boardwalk. Got a pool side room which was by parking lot. Some rooms are by pool. Found a broken picture with glass on floor which seemed weird. They did come in when informed to clean up but with 2 kids was concerning. My family loved the huge shower... More

We took at 17 day vacation in CA and this was one of our favorite hotels. The location was perfect, just a short walk to the Boardwalk/Pier and its right across the street from the beach. We had a nice large balcony to hang out an listen to the music and watch the people but it was still quite at... More

As previously mentioned the location is perfect with the wharf right in front of you and across the road. Outside the suites is a small deck with chairs where you can sit and enjoy the view and around the corner you'll find a cute little lunch spot 'The Picnic Basket' and not too far down the road the family-friendly and...

This was a very nice place to stay we were only able to stay one night, mostly because of rates ($234 w/tax) but for the area wasn't bad. Didn't care for the steps required to get down to the beach (3 flights I think) I've had both knees replaced.

The Beach Street Inn and Suites sits at a perfect location. The Wharf or Pier is directly in front of you as you look out from the shared balcony. Walk down a flight or two of stairs and you are a short stroll to the SC Beach BoardWalk. Our room was on the second floor and was appointed with Beach... More

My family and I stayed here for the 4th of July holiday weekend. We had 4 rooms total for 3 nights each. We arrived at about noon and our rooms were not ready as of yet. But no big deal, we headed out to the wharf for lunch. The rooms were ready only about an hour later. The rooms were... More

This suite was gorgeous. Within walking distance of the beach. The staff is super friendly. We will definitely return. There was plenty of room for all 5 of us. The kitchen area was great. There's even an outdoor grill!

This was our first stay at the Beach Street Inn and we couldn't have been more pleased! The staff was very friendly and accommodating and even allowed us to check in early to our room. The room itself was equipped with a kitchen sink, microwave, refrigerator, and even plates and silverware. If you are looking for a hotel in Santa... More

Our favorite place to stay when we go to Santa Cruz with our family! We have stayed @ the Beach Street Inn three summers in a row & love it there. We love the poolside cabanas & the friendly beach feel of the property. My kids love the firepit for cooking s'mores at the end of the day! Great location... More

The best location in town and I guess this is what you are paying for. It was nice and service was friendly but it was considerably more expensive than the other hotels of similar standard that we stayed in during our trip.
