This ia a fun and funky (in a good way) place. The decor is very 70's w/ lots of bright colors and geometric designs - but it's all new and clean and very well done. My 13 year old loved the retro look. And the location is perfect. Right on the beach. All rooms have an ocean view. You can hear the waves crashing at night - even with the sliders closed. If you turn left out of the hotel there is a great 5 mile (out and back to state park) running path along the ocean. You can walk to downtown in 10 minutes. The staff was great. The gave us a late check out with no problem and after we did check out they offered a key to the pool/hot tub deck for the rest of the day and said we could keep our car in the parking lot for the rest of the day too. We didn't even have to ask.
- 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
