My wife and small (5 lb) dog stayed at the Bay Front Inn about a week ago on a Friday night. We were told the room would be ready by 330 and wound up waiting another 30 minutes while it was being cleaned. While the room was clean, I agree with a previous reviewer that the cost should be $60 a night for the value. The rooms are small and the walls are thin. The parking lot (where it costs an extra $10 to park) was so crowded I had to back onto the street to get out. While we paid extra for our dog, there is no grass on the property and the space provided is by the pool on rocks. We were going to try the breakfast offered but we needed to be on the road by 8 and the breakfast did not open until 8--a late hour for most hotels that offer breakfast. All in all the value was about 1/3 what I paid, and it's only that good because the beach is a short walk away. Santa Cruz is not a dog friendly town. Dogs are not allowed on the beach or the boardwalk, two of the main attractions in the town. There are but 2 dog parks and the one we visited was not fenced in.
