We checked in late was booked into the room just off the "lobby". Carpet, drapery filthy. Curtains in the bathroom closed. Next morning I opened the curtain to discover a sheet of plastic duct taped to the wall -- rather than a locking window!!! Ground floor room, and I could stick my hand through the window. Not SAFE. Great place... More

Me and my family had the pleasure in staying at the Casablanca inn. We stayed in a family suite. It was an interesting room. The suite was roomy for my children. The bathroom was a bit musty. The kitchenette was a bit outdated. The beds were in a need to be replaced. For the price you pay for the room... More

I loved it. This was my 1st time staying in Santa Cruz and happened on the Casablanca Inn through a search for lodging; this was also my 1st official date with my new girlfriend. It was also her 1st visit to Santa Cruz as well. The place was 'amazing'!!! I love the Presidential Suite with its 360° - loft view,... More

I needed a hotel for an overnight stay. I considered booking one of the cheaper hotels on the beach but came across Casablanca Inn and figured paying $50 more for a room that looked miles better in comparison to the $100 rooms was well worth it.

We stayed in the family suite. Good amount of room. Front desk was awesome. Remember this is a historic hotel so everything is not new. Liked the home feel😄. If your super picket; it's not for you. If you enjoy relaxing in a nostalgic place it's great.

We loved our room. I like that it's older & the room had an ocean view and private balcony. Exactly what we were looking for. It's in walking distance to the boardwalk and the beach. The staff was very nice as well.

We had charming rooms, maybe a little eclectic decor, but it was within walking distance to Boardwalk and dining on the pier. Beautiful sea view from comfortable balcony. Could hear the ocean as we slept!!

We stated here just for one night. It's pricey (expected) but amazing location.. Right across the beach and just minutes away from the pier and the rides and stuff. Santa Cruz is an awesome place. Loved it.
