The ocean-front Sea & Sand Inn has always been popular with savvy out-of-towners, but a major renovation in 2009 has added a whole new “wow” factor. Three new luxury king spa rooms with ocean view balconies were added; two spacious family cottages with private hot tubs and three other spa rooms were also upgraded. All 22 rooms have a fantastic ocean front view of sparkling Monterey Bay.

We had a wonderful stay at Sea and Sand. The staff is amazing. They are always available and during these crazy times of COVID are always safe. The grounds are kept clean and there are wonderful ways to sit and watch the ocean in safe socially distant way.

Sea and Sand is exceptionally well run with caring staff. Its location can't be beat. There are several choices to enjoy the view in addition to the room, and the sound of the surf is soothing. The place has "soul." We will definitely return.

Booked a 3-person room but it had only a queen sized bed. A roll-out was provided upon request. Beautiful views, but a quite long walk down to the beach. The continental breakfast was not good. But the room was clean and the room to sit outside and look out onto the beach and water below is spacious and nice.

Room was clean and can’t beat the location. Definitely on the expensive side, paid $350 a night. However, all employees were very respectful and there for us when help was needed! Will book again when visiting Santa Cruz

Beautiful place to stay! Will definitely stay again in the future. Nearby dining overlooking the ocean, Pier and Boardwalk. Different types of rooms to choose from. Again peaceful, relaxing and accommodating.
