After coming here last summer with family for a couple of days, we decided to return for a week in the off season. We had one of the rooms facing the beach with a small kitchen. Rooms are nicely appointed, kitchen is more than adequate and views are spectacular. Short walk to the pier with a couple of very nice... More

We have always stayed at a competing hotel across the street. Never again! Beach Street Inn and Suites is our new go-to. Our room was super cute and even had a kitchen! Great view and comfy bed! On top of all this fabulousness, there was a bag of Marini's salt water taffy in our room! And, it was about $100... More

I was fortunate to spend a night here whilst celebrating my birthday on a trip from the UK. The staff at the hotel couldn't have been more helpful, the room was gorgeous and our view from the terrace was stunning. I loved our stay in Santa Cruz and would totally recommend the Beach Street Inn as THE place to stay!

We were working out way down the California cost on Route 1 and our first stop south of San Francisco was Santa Cruz. It was October but the weather was pleasant. Our spacious ocean front room had a balcony and it was a treat to sit in the comfortable chairs and watch the sun set. The hotel is just a... More

Had a wonderful stay! The view from the deck is gorgeous! Close to everything - the boardwalk is literally across the street. Will be back next year. The deli downstairs has yummy pastries! Recommend Beach Street Suites & Inns.

We have stayed at the Beach Street a handful of times over the past two years with our family of 5. The staff is always courteous and helpful. In fact this last time Morgan came to our room and installed a temporary drawbridge on the door so our adventurous two year old couldn't open and close the door a million... More

Great service from the front desk. We arrived very early in the morning to beat the San Jose commuters. Shelby allowed me to rent one of the bikes so my girls and I could ride the bikes to the pier and down past the boardwalk. And she called me to let me know when the room was available to check...

Stayed in suite 502 (Cabana Suite) over a long weekend. Pleasantly surprised at how well it was laid out. 2 adults and 4 young kids (all under 8 yrs old), and we did not feel cramped at all. We parked the car and did not have to drive the entire weekend. The hotel staff was polite and helpful from the... More
