We stayed here on our way along the coast between LA and San Francisco. We arrived fairly late, I suppose, at 8:30pm to find an envelope on the office door with the code to our door in it. At least that indicated the motel was confident about crime levels. Our family suite was what used to be, I suspect, accommodation... More

Stayed here for one night as part of a PCH trip. It was a nice hotel, clean and comfortable. Not really near the "boardwalk" section of Santa Cruz but I preferred it that way. Was able to wake up and run to the beach and marina. About 1/4 mile from the beach. While in Santa Cruz spend an hour to... More

This was an excellent and safe place for a family to stay in Santa Cruz, a few blocks from the beach in the Twin Lakes neighborhood. The room was super clean and had a full kitchenette. The only downside was the traffic noise from Cliff Dr. The road is not that busy (and is quiet at night), but the sound... More

My husband and I stayed at Pelican Point Inn for a week in July when visiting family in the area. We found the accommodations to be a perfect location for walking to the beach, nearby restaurants, grocery and access to the local express ways. It is only 5-7 minutes to downtown Santa Cruz, which we visited several times. Our unit... More

Imagine you have two teenage kids and want to stay in a hotel by the beach for a summer weekend in Santa Cruz. If you are Obama, you probably stay in Lanikai, HI. If you're not, you might like this place. Affordable, 5 minute walk at most to Twin Lakes beach, and the two rooms we stayed in (Suites 1... More

We only booked for two nights, but were said we had to leave during our trip on highway 1. Great location ( 4 min to the beach), comfy rooms and great service. Restaurant near the harbor ( The Crow's Nest) can be reached on foot by the beach, so you can leave your car to get some rest. The owners... More

We just returned from a three day stay at the Pelican Point Inn. This place is run by a very friendly lady named Anne (owner?) who greated us like an old friend, couldn't be nicer. We booked the room two weeks before arrival, and she didn't take or want our credit card info at all. She promised a room would... More

This place is old, the units are a bit cramped and dated, but are clean. Only a few units, maybe 10. Very close to the beach (couple blocks walk), and across the street is a mini store, and also a Mexican restaurant. So if you are on a budget and wish to make your own breakfast in the kitchenette, for... More

We booked two rooms for a visit to SC for Christmas. Anne, (I believe she is the owner), was incredibly accommodating and patient while I adjusted our reservation more than a few times. Wearrived and checked in with no hassle. Both rooms were just what our family needed. They were clean and comfortable and moral like small apartments. Rooms are... More

Easy check-in with a friendly host, very clean and roomy suite with a kitchenette and queen bedroom. Very comfy and again, clean, bed. Chairs and small table outside each room a really nice touch. Close to the beach and a really nice walk to downtown. The road is busy but it is quiet in the bedroom. So glad we stayed... More
