“Excellent location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2009

This is your basic motel with an excellent location next to the Boardwalk. The room was clean, the staff friendly. Dissappointed they took the coffee out of the room, but they did have it in the lobby. No complaints and I have stayed here 5 times. Never a problem

I've stayed in several hotels in Santa Cruz, and they are usually the higher end ones, so my review my be partial. I'll first list the good things about the place: friendly staff, right across the street from the beach and the Boardwalk (can't go wrong there), and the price was right.
The bad things about this place: it has a slightly 'seedy' feel to it, there was a blood stain on one of my pillow cases that I didn't notice until the next morning, there was a used bar of soap left in the shower from the previous guest.
Despite those disgusting things, I would stay here again if it was going to just be overnight. The location is unbeatable for the price, just thoroughly check your room when you check in so that you can be moved or get a discount for anything the maid may have neglected to do.
If you're looking for a romantic destination, this is not it.

We just needed a quick one night escape from San Francisco and chose Santa Cruz. We picked the best deal on Hotwire and it turned out to be this little beach motel. It was all we needed and it was across the street from the giant Beach Boardwalk Arcade and Mini Golf. The service was very friendly when we checked in. The room was nice. Nothing fancy. It had a mini fridge and a microwave which we would have used if we stayed longer than one night. The bathroom was very clean and the bed and sheets were comfortable. It was just right of an inexpensive 2 star hotel...though Hotwire says it's 2.5 stars. For breakfast we drove 1 mile to Linda's Seabreeze Cafe which you should seek out. It was the best breakfast I've had in years. Order a cinnamon roll instead of toast. It is to die for.

My wife and I traveled from Sacramento to Santa Cruz for some much needed R&R. After a long drive we ended up without a hotel. Then we walked into the Coastview Inn on beach st. Immediately Paul took care of our needs. The price was excellent and the room was wonderful. Due to health needs we had to change rooms 3 times. Paul never complained and gave us superior service. We have no complaints. Excellent service, greatparking, great location and good price. Thanks Paul..

After a horrible experience with Guest House Pacific Inn, I made reservations at The Coastview Inn. It must have been meant to be becuase we enjoyed our stay here very much. The manager was very nice, friendly and helpful! You can't beat the location - it is literally right across the street from the beach, boardwalk and wharf. The rooms were recently remodeled and very clean and nice. We will definitely stay here again!!

I'm not sure which Coastview Inn these other reviewers stayed in, but our experience was that the room was beyond filthy, the beds uncomfortable and smelly and the shower lukewarm (not to mention impossible to start wtithout directions). There were lines of balck grime on the walls and doors. The pillows were flabby and reeked of bleach. The mattresses seemed to be covered with some kind of plastic. The floors were so filthy that we wouldn't walk around barefoot. I'm not particularly squeamish -- I've stayed in pretty raunchy hotels before, but this one was way beyond nasty. If I had paid less than $100 -- ok, you get what you pay for. But this room was $140. We went to Monterey the next night, and for a mere $40 per night more we had a beautiful room. We couldn't wait to get out of the Coast-Spew Inn, and I daresay we not only won't return there, but I'd be surprised if we went back to Santa Cruz at all.

Great little place to stay if you want to relax on the beach or enjoy the boardwalk.

The hotel is literally situated over the road from the boardwalk, and a stone’s throw from a few little places you can grab a bite to eat. Be sure to get a meal at the restaurant by the Pier, the service is great and the view is nice.

The rooms are clean and simple with a refrigerator and other utilities to make your stay easy. We didn’t get much use of many of the facilities as we weren’t in the room much of the time – but the place was friendly, clean and convenient.
