We really enjoyed our stay at Coastview Inn. We were here in October for a wedding with the reception at the Cocoanut Grove on the boardwalk. This was just across the street. The location is excellent for the Boardwalk, the beach, the pier, wharf, the nightlife, restaurants, bars & markets. The new manager Ron is awesome and the entire staff... More

My husband and I were on a road trip to southern California. We stayed in many hotels that were cheaper than Coastview and 10X newer, cleaner and in a cleaner safer town. The website is very misleading on how they describe their property. It looks nothing like the site! The room smelled like old deodorant. We couldn't wait to leave... More

Admittedly we were here in the off-season (October), so we can't speak about the typical noise level or "scene" when beach life is in full swing. Suffice it to say, though, that the Coastview is an attractive enough place whatever the date. The staff was cheerful and helpful. They were happy to accommodate a specific request for a ground-floor, ocean-view... More

The room was clean and quiet, close to downtown. Staff was friendly and the price was reasonable. Breakfast wasn't much to speak of. I would probably look for something in a better part of Santa Cruz next time I visit, but I was not unhappy with our accommodations.

While not fancy, our room was very clean, staff was friendly, and the location cannot be beat for the reasonable cost (relative to other venues in the area). We were in town for a wedding. Ceremony was up at the lighthouse, and the reception at the Cocoanut Grove, so the location was perfect. We showed up, parked the car, and... More

You have a nice place with great service (especially Vanessa-an angel- but the breakfast is too weak. You can add five extra dollars to each room rate and add boiled eggs and croissant for about 100 dollars a day more which you would recoup, otherwise, you have a great place, thank you.

We stayed one night for a girlfriends birthday. You cannot beat the location. They upgraded us to an ocean view for free! Nothing fancy, but it is clean and the front desk is very hospitable. I would definitely stay again.

Right next to the Boardwalk, beach and wharf, so location is excellant. Numerous food and drink options within walking distance. Room was big and more than adequate and very clean.
