Arrived at lobby 7:30AM for breakfast. No one was there, no staff, nothing. Was told at check in, breakfast would start at 7:00AM. Left room keys on counter and took off. Miffed ?

It's all about the location, right on the beach near the pier. Fell asleep to the sound of the waves crashing. We ate breakfast out on the patio listening to the sea lions barking at each other.

The room was a bit dated but more than suitable.

The staff was super friendly and helpful. They have laundry on site but you need quarters and they didn't have any at the time and it was hard getting them. Not a big deal, just pack some quarters.

Just cross the street and your at the beach.

Parking was a little cramped. But we could walk everywhere so it wasn't a problem.

Staff was friendly.

The location is great: directly across from the Boardwalk, close to restaurants, the pier and shops all in walking distance.

Our room was small, the breakfast area is also small. Luckily, thanks to the location, one isn't prone to spending too much time in the rooms. This definitely more of a motel than a hotel.

We loved the Beach Street Inn! The location is right next to the Boardwalk, shops, and restaurants. We got a first level room, which is one story above the sidewalk. It was perfect for relaxing, people watching, and enjoying the beach that is just across the street. We took a walk down the pier in front of the hotel and had a great time seeing hundreds of sea lions swimming back and forth at the end of the pier. It was fun seeing the train that runs from the Boardwalk to Felton pass by our room every so often, as it was all lit up in holiday lights! We hope to be back soon for another stay at this hotel!

Clean room. Prime location.

Expensive. Housekeeping doesn't want to clean your room. Continental breakfast is terrible. Room is small.

I think if you are going to pay this much for a hotel you might as well fork over a little more for the Dream hotel right across the street, on the beach. At least you might get service there.

I loved the space of the family suite and balcony view of the wharf and beach.

I felt it could have been a little cleaner.

Great and spacious family suites. I felt the room could have been a bit cleaner. Overall experience was good though. I'm not too sure what to make of the staff, they were not too friendly, but they were not rude. I would stay here again.

The location was perfect for what I was in Santa Cruz for; the half marathon.

Nope. It suited my purpose.

Our room was great for our purpose. We were there to do things such as go to the beach, and run the half marathon. If you plan on just hanging out in the room this may not suit your needs, but it works as a great home base for your Santa Cruz adventures.

Great location. Room was spacious and clean. Full kitchen with a stove, fridge microwave and table. Quiet. And the shower stayed nice and hot with good water pressure. Decent flat screen.

It is an older hotel. The parking lot is awkward to get in and out of. The office staff wasn't very friendly but I didn't have any interaction with them other than check in/check out.

Location and private access to beach

Overpriced for expectations. Room location given was not private, close to public entrance to restaurant & people in the pool area could see right in our room. Felt like we were given a less desirable room due to lower price received.

For the price, was expecting a nicer room...free continental breakfast or something else would have been appreciated. Breakfast in room was pricey but portion was huge...had we had an idea that he portion was so big we wouldn't have needed to order a meal for each person.

The room was great, walking distance to the boardwalk, and well worth the priceline fee.

There was not enough parking in the hotel parking lot to accommodate the rooms. Having to park in another hotel's overflow and then having to validate at the other hotel was a bit odd.

We would stay here again.

This hotel is situated on a cliff overlooking the ocean. This is a perfect spot for enjoying the ocean view, watching surfers, and relaxing. The outside area is secure and clean. We met several nice couples and enjoyed the wine and cheese social hour

no

The hotel staff is excellent. They responded to our questions and informed us about the hotel amenities; such as free breakfast, afternoon snacks, and the wine and cheese social hour. The common areas and room was very clean. We had a beautiful room with a fireplace and a patio sitting area. The ocean sounds made for a peaceful night sleep.

Quaint hotel with a decor that speaks of home and not a motel. Beautiful view of Monterey Bay, Santa Cruz boardwalk and wharf and Cowells Beach. Nice to wake up to the sound of the ocean. Good security as you have to have a key to enter the area where the rooms are located. Nice breakfast with fresh cut fruit, muffins, yogurt etc. Wine and cheese in afternoon.

Jun 9 2013 Posted by Kelsey

The location is very close to the boardwalk.

The room we were first put in smelled very strongly of cigarette smoke, and had several black stains on the bathroom ceiling. We were allowed to move to another room though.

The Aqua Breeze Inn had both pros and cons: Pros: close to the board walk, comfy bed. Cons: reeked of cigarette smoke, not the cleanest, could use some updating, and doesn't have a ton of parking. It's also not in the safest area, but they do have cameras in the parking lots. If you're looking to stay here, just know that it is a motel and go into it with open eyes.

Prices are either the average per night price per room or first night of stay. You can select to display the prices with or without our estimate of taxes & fees (which may not appear on provider's booking page but will be charged at hotel checkout). Before you complete your reservation, verify the total cost on the provider's site. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.
