We stayed at Dream Inn for two nights and enjoyed it. The is the only larger hotel on the beach and it's proximity to the beach (on it!), pier, wharf and west cliff drive. Our room was on the 7th floor and whilst the room was spacious and comfortable we were positioned next to the lift so it was noisy during busy times. Surprisingly we could also hear a child running around in the room above. The decor was modern and retro-styled.
The staff were friendly and welcoming and there is parking across the road which is very convenient - at a cost. WIFI is now complimentary. We had two fridges and one was empty so this was handy to stock our own drinks.
As others have stated, the view is great and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the world play on the beach below. A nice spot to unwind.
We would definitely recommend Dream Inn, just request a room away from the lift and perhaps on the top floor.
- 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
