The Dream Inn is a great hotel in Santa Cruz with awesome views and easy to get to location. Staying midweek in February, I felt like I had the place to myself! I'll definitely come back here for my next stay in the Santa Cruz area rather than heading down to Monterey for longer drives and higher prices.
- fun decor and nice large rooms
- gorgeous views of the ocean and boardwalk
- personal balconies to enjoy said views!
- friendly staff, including awesome valets who are quick to retrieve your car and seem to actually enjoy their jobs and interacting with guests.
- comfy beds
- free, good wifi connection
- lovely bathroom and toiletries
- personal Kuerig coffee machine in the rooms!
Cons (and these are just nit picky)
- The heating system is a bit old and loud, as others have mentioned, but not enough to bother me
-Room service was pricey. I know, it's room service! but it seemed higher than average and no good small plate options. $19 (including all the taxes, fees, tips) for 4 average sized crab rangoon is cray cray.
- sign up for the Joie de Vivre club if you aren't already a member. You get a half bottle of wine at check in!
- get a room on the 4th floor and no one is above you, and you'll have awesome vaulted ceilings
