We loved our stay here! The new upgrades are fantastic! I do feel like it's a little overpriced however EVERYTHING is near the boardwalk. You pay for the cleanliness, pool, and great location. Our family of 4 (with 2 young boys) had a blast on our weekend stay here. My youngest son loved the starfish tiled shower and the salt... More

Literally across the street from the pier that you can drive on! Our room had an ocean view with a lanai where all rooms on your floor shared! Restaurant and boutiques below so you can smell the bacon and eggs cooking! Staff were really nice! The Santa Cruz Boardwalk is also within walking distance although we didn't get to experience...

We really enjoyed out night here. The hotel is newly renovated and has a wonderful beach feel. Everything was clean and cozy and I don't think there's anything I would have changed. We had one of the best rooms - ocean view on the second level (room 203). I liked the second level because it gave an ideal view of... More

From the time we arrive at Beach Street, the staff and service was Awesome! The reom was nice with a fantastic view of the beach. The only draw back was that we couldn't stay longer. I will recommend this spot!

Very clean and well kept. Great staff - all super nice and helpful. Jessica set us up with a great room and a solid sushi... More

Great location! Ocean views, proximity to the beach, boardwalk and wharf, West Cliff Dr., and restaurants. We parked the car and left it in the lot the whole visit. The Picnic Basket is on the ground level and perfect for take out breakfast, supplemented by the hotel's free cappuccinos on demand. Friendly and helpful staff, and free parking. That night,...

We especially enjoyed the large terrace overlooking the beach. The bathroom was very nice and the shower was Awsome! Nicely decorated too. We enjoyed our time there. We only could stay one night while passing through but will definitely be back.

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
