Late in October is a fine time to visit Santa Cruz and get one's choice of rooms with a view, restaurant seatings with a view, less crowded walks, and merchants on the wharf anxious for a sale. The weather was warm, sunny, and colorful. The room is so modern, clean, and convenient and the bathroom is the finest I have seen in a motel. The sound of the waves is so relaxing and the common deck is comfortable and even private, in a way. We really loved our stay there.

Room Tip: 201 was ours...at the end of the common deck

I stayed here during a retreat...it was a little pricey but oceanview rooms generally are. The hotel is older and has a lot of stairs but it is well maintained and the shower is to die for. Double size with a rain forest shower head on one end and an adjustable euro-style hand held shower head on the other end. The hotel is at the "right" end of the street and the two andirondack chairs right outside my door were quaint and perfectly positioned for watching beach volleyball. A little further down the street is the arcade and rides and it's a little busier and not as nice. Santa Cruz itself is a little dicey in my opinion for a woman alone at night.

Room Tip: I enjoyed my oceanview room but don't know if it was worth the extra money.

Visiting Santa Cruz from our home in Honolulu, Hawaii we know a good beach stay when we experience one. Beach Street Inn and Suites was a shot in the dark for us to stay in based on it's great reviews here on tripadvisor. This hotel more than exceeded our expectations :) Kathy at the front desk was incredibly helpful with choosing a room, dinner recommendations, and just about any question we had. We first stayed on the upper deck side of the property, and we felt so spoiled. Extremely clean, modern,and very comfortable, plus a view right out of a postcard. We had a one bedroom suite, with full kitchen, and plenty of room to stretch out, for the 3 of us. The bathroom was very spacious, with a modern double -shower. Even with our room situated by the maintenance area - our room was soundproof ! Parking was readily available every time we returned from our day's adventure. WE LOVED THIS HOTEL. We will definitely stay here again, on our next surf trip out here..!

Room Tip: choose a room on the upper level ( parking lot level) for that great deck view, in the 300 building...

We had a double queen room which provided enough space for both of us. I liked that we could open the window & still have privacy by using the shutters. It was close to the pier & eating places for breakfast. Free wifi was abysmal. Staff helped out with all our questions. We had a pool room. Ocean view rooms cost a little more & some were down lots of steps.

Room Tip: If you want an ocean view room make sure you aks about steps to the room from the car park. Pool vie...

For $179, I would of anticipated a little more. Our room was dated, which we were told. However the iPod docking didn't work. The bathroom window opened right up to a neighbor, and no no fan so unless I wanted the maintenance dude or whomever to see me in all my glory, I was suffocated in the bathroom. The bed was mediocre. The pool was lacking much of any heat. Front desk staff were nice, but tis place wasn't worth it for us unfortunately.

We are very sorry to hear that your recent stay with us did not live up to your expectations. That certainly is not the experience that we want any of our guests to have. It does sound like you were in one of the 4 unremodeled rooms on the property. We do definitely make all guests booking those rooms aware of the fact that they are older rooms and don't sell them online for that reason as well. Nonetheless I am sorry to hear that you were disappointed and hope that you will consider returning to stay in one of our remodeled rooms which I think would be much more to your liking.

Stayed here one night and it was lovely.
The rooms were absolutely gorgeous and the views of the beach were awesome!
You can walk along the boardwalk and pier but have to drive into downtown.
Would stay again and would definitely Reccommend.

What an fabulous hotel, right at the heart of Santa Cruz. Very clean and tidy. The best bathroom with a walk-in shower with two showers inside! The best view too - looking out over the wharf and sea (watch out for the sea lions who are really noisy). Lovely outside seating area, good for chatting to your neighbours over a cuppa in the mornings. Brilliant, helpful staff.
