I stayed here for a total of 2 nights with my friends and it was a really good experience overall. We booked the family suite and it was super spacious with a full kitchen and two bathrooms. My only complaint is that upon arrival we were told our room was not ready and that it would take 15 minutes but... More

Arrived after booking multi rooms with on line service. Desk tried to tell me one ro wasn't booked despite have all confirmation numbers. They tried to direct me to their sister hotel. Which was worse than the Casablanca. This hotel looks like it was built at the turn-of-the-century, and apparently you're still using the original window screens. There is no... More

Nice hotel. Clean room with a great ocean view. Enjoyed our stay. Located near the beach Boardwalk, and there were tons of restaurants near the hotel. Wonderful patio to sit on and watch the beach activities and ocean. Fridge, coffee maker, and microwave in the room. Great stay.

This place may not be for everyone due to its age, but then Santa Cruz is an old beach town, which is exactly why we like staying here. It's funky. Right on the main drag, we get the rooms with the shared balcony that overlook the boardwalk, the wharf and right in front are the volleyball courts. Also, the train... More

The lady at the front desk (who was very nice) talked me into upgrading our room, and that made it VERY overpriced. She told me that the room had been recently renovated. Not sure I would agree. Most expensive view I have ever paid for. We got in early, but had to request a broom so that we could sweep... More

Casablanca on the beach is a small hotel almost on the beach in Santa Cruz, CA. We stayed in a balcony room #11. The room is like a small efficiency apartment with a small but usable kitchen that was adequately stocked with dish ware. The unit had been refurbished and was nice and clean. There is no air conditioning in... More

First time being in Santa Cruz for me. My hubby and I decided to book this hotel for our anniversary. We booked the ocean view room. Eden and Lupita were awesome when I was checking in. Eventhough, when I called ahead of time to check what time is the check in (3pm) I was told when I got there ,... More
