This was our third stay at Dream Inn, this time it was to attend a wedding on site. The hotel is within easy walking distance to downtown Santa Cruz, the Boardwalk and the Cliff Drive Walk. This central location is busy on a beautiful summer day in Santa Cruz, so if you are looking for a get away from people place, you should go somewhere else. However if you want to enjoy a great ocean view from your room, easily walk to dozens of great restaurants downtown, be able to listen to music from the Boardwalk while soaking in the hot tub and go for walks on the ocean, it is perfect.
What sets this hotel apart from others is the great attitude and friendliness of all the staff who work there. There had been some slight mix-up in the booking which was quickly straightened out on check in. All the staff at the restaurant and wedding reception were very pleasant, helpful and co-operative. And when my wife realized she had left her phone charger in the room and called the next day after we arrived home, they found it and mailed it to us!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A fun culmination between the beach and the slightly offbeat town of Santa Cruz, the Santa Cruz Dream Inn is the ideal destination for a weekend escape, corporate event, family vacation or a romantic getaway. We're getting ready to make a splash. Our beachfront pool area will be closed for renovation from December 1, 2014 through March 12, 2015. We look forward to reopening with upgraded amenities and design, plus a hot tub more luxurious than ever before-all steps from the Santa Cruz Boardwalk and Monterey Bay. ... more less
