“good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

A good value place to stay right on the sea front. Clean and tidy. My only issue was with some noisy neighbours - so maybe someone on a night shift might be a good idea just to help keep the noise down at the weekends.

Every quarter I drop off my son at the local university and stay at the same hotel, Coastview Inn. The staff are polite, know the area well, and very friendly. The guy, also a student, was charismatic and gave us another discount. He made our stay comfortable. The hotel is close to the city's major attraction, Boardwalk, and a huge variety of restaurants, ranging from sizzling Mexican food, pepperoni pizza, fresh seafood, and baroque steak. Even though we only stayed for one day, my sister and I had a great time. I would highly recommend this place for a person who is not looking for luxurious bedding, but is looking for a decent place near the beach and Santa Cruz's thrilling theme park, arcade and wharf. I am not giving the place five stars because, as a repeated customer, the rooms have not been updated yet. Although, the place still offers comfort for a good price. Thank you Coastview Inn!

Room Tip: If you want a view of the beach choose the oceanview room. It is a tad bit more expensive than the n...

Hotel is right on the sea front, 200 yards +/- from the Pier and 500 yards +/- from the Boardwalk - location is central for all attractions and price is good too! Free WIFI too. Check in was fast and efficient and welcoming. Hotel has plenty of parking, some in the motel and under the motel while the rest is in a secure lot behind it. We booked into room 205 on the second floor, at the rear of the hotel. Room was nice with a king sized bed, A/C, TV, ironing table and iron, it had a desk which was good for laying stuff out on, plenty of hanging space and also 3 drawers for clothes. It had NO coffee maker!

Off the bedroom was a small ante room with a sink, mirror microwave and fridge. Leading off that was a toilet/bath/shower.

Breakfast was your typical light conintinental style meal with the usual culprits available. It was fine but the room was quite small and filled up quickly. It is free! There is a Denny's across the road for those who like big breakfasts.

All in all I thought the room was nice and modern and great value and I'd go back in a shot.

Room Tip: We stayed at the rear of the hotel incase the noise from the boulevard was loud - we did not hear a...

We spent 4 nights here and for the most part we were happy. I noticed when I went to check in that the floors in the office were really dirty, like they hadn't been swept in weeks. Lots of dust bunnies and sand all around the floor corners, etc. We went to our room and it was very small so I upgraded to an ocean view which was much better and roomier.( Two queen beds and enough room to put a blow up mattress on the floor for my son). The room seemed very clean and the view was great. My daughter noticed that the sheets came un tucked and that on the mattress cover that enclosed the top mattress had stains on it. That kind of made us un easy about the cleanliness of the room. The sheets were clean so we just dealt with it. They used flat sheets instead of fitted sheets. The staff was very accommodating and nice. The continental breakfast so very basic. (Toast, rolls, cereal, juice and coffee/tea.) The pool looked dirty like it needed to be vacuumed. The price was right and the location was awesome with free parking at the hotel.
P.S The day we checked out there was a cleaning lady finally cleaning the floors in the office where you check in.:) Oh, And the beds were very comfortable.
Overall, I would stay there again because the price was great and you couldn't beat the location right across the street from the beach and boardwalk.

I liked the price for this hotel. It is right across the street from the beach, ample parking and nice, simple rooms. Staff is very nice. Only hiccup, the breakfast room is incredibly small (used to be a room), so finding a "sit down" "spot" might be difficult.

I spent two nights here, and was very happy. Parking is plentiful, though the upper deck is less than convenient. When I checked in, I was not told about the continental breakfast, so I missed it the first morning. But, the room was comfortable, and relatively spacious, and a good value, so I will return when I'm in the area.

Thank you for your responding to your stay with us at Coastview Inn. We do offer clean and comfortable rooms right across the street from the beach and boardwalk. Our free parking is a real time saver of having to look for a space or pay for parking , as ours is free for our guests. We are sorry you missed out on the free continental breakfast provided for our guests and will take that up with the front desk to remind then to share that information to all our guests.Our value that we offer is incredible when you put all the benefits together and you saying you will stay again is what we love to hear from our guests. See you soon!
