We had a wonderful "long weekend" at Dream Inn in May 2022. Our party of three – parents with twenty something daughter – were very comfortable in our two-queen room. The room was nicely appointed and perfectly maintained. We enjoyed our second-floor view of the pool area and the beach beyond. Beach access very easy, and the beachside rinse-off showers were very welcome. Snacks and drinks pool-area bar were quite good, but pretty expensive. (We never visited the on-property restaurant, nor tried room service.) Very nice to be so close to the boardwalk and wharf.
Beautiful venue, all rooms have ocean view, comfy beds, hit it right for Los Lobos concert, champagne and chaucatterie, pastel colors, sleep to the sounds of the ocean, surf classes start at sun rise on the beach below, sand captions on the sand below created by sand artist, never want to leave!
I request a room up high and told was told that's what I would get. Once I arrived, I was given one on the first floor. I arrived early middle of the week so no reason to say all high room were booked up. Room cost were crazy high for the money beach area was nasty full of insect's seaweed and smelled bad. I have stayed at better motels 6's on the beach than this! SAVE YOUR MONEY FIND SOMEWHERE ELSE TO STAY.
Great Property- access to the beach, wharf and boardwalk. Very friendly staff. Would go back.Great views from rooms. The only negative was Kids camp going on all day- beach busy and loud but it was all okay.
My stay was very pleasant , and the location is perfect. The room the best that I have stayed in with the view splendor. Don't like the parking policy. should be on sight or no extra charge. All in all everything is within walking distance and the beach is very enjoyable . Hey it's Santa Cruz the way it's suppose to be.
Location is absolutely perfect to enjoy the beach, a morning run, sunset… jacuzzi at the property is very hot and great at the end of the day. Room with patio is spacious and nice. Drinks and food at the pool are convenient and tasty. Room dining and restaurant are top-notch! We’ll be back soon!
For the price tag... I was expecting it to be an amazing place! The room had an amazing view and was decorated well. But, the bathroom was dated and had a leaky shower. The pool was cloudy, full of screaming kids and parents were either missing or were too high to care about what their kids were doing. Our room smelled like weed the whole time we were there because it comes through the vents. I was very unimpressed by the area and the clientele. Again, for that price tag... I was expecting more class.
Great stay. Very clean rooms & attentive/thoughtful staff! Constant upkeep going on which was so nice to see. It was super convenient to be able to leave our car and walk to the boardwalk. The activities provided for guests (yoga/kids happy hour) were a fantastic addition. Thank you for a great stay!
We had the best time! Very friendly staff! We were there only overnight but it felt longer because of how comfortable and at home we felt. Everyone from valet staff, inroom dining, front desk and housekeeping were friendly, courteous and kind. This was our 2nd annual trip and we enjoyed every minute. Can't wait to stay longer next year!
My wife and I have been going to this amazing beach front hotel for many years. The rooms are spacious and well maintained by the friendly housekeeping staff. The hotel is on the beach and every room faces the ocean and has a private balcony. The large pool deck faces the ocean and has a large jacuzzi, drink bar, and taco bar. We have come to know several staff members and we look forward to seeing them each time we come. Mollie at Jack O'Neill restaurant is very friendly and attentive. Eric at the pool bar is very friendly and makes great drinks. Jason G. at the pool bar is also very friendly and makes great drinks. Jason has a Cajun background and has some interesting stories about his time growing up in Louisiana. These staff members have taken the time to get to know us and always greet us by name. This hotel can be pricey, but in our opinion worth every penny.…
