We booked a king room at the Dream Inn and were pleasantly surprised to find that we had an ocean front room overlooking the wharf and Cowell's Beach. The view was breathtaking! We were able to hear the waves crashing and enjoy the sunshine on our private balcony. We were even able to see a pod of whales passing by in the distance (look for the spray!). SO amazing! The bed was huge and comfortable. Bathroom was decent- stand up shower no tub. Big flat screen tv. My only complaint was that you can hear noise from your neighbors like doors shutting/slamming, etc. Maybe because it is an older building? Nothing we couldn't handle however. Staff was more than helpful recommending restaurants, providing directions, etc. Everyone was always cheerful and smiling. You definitely cant beat this location with its close proximity to the wharf, amusement park, and ocean front volley ball courts!
- 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
