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.

Location: close to the water, yet still quiet. Also appreciated the friendliness of the staff, and the appearance of the dining area and the room itself. We very much enjoyed our stay.

Closet access was a little awkward

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.

nothing really I have stayed in better hotels in Santa Cruz for the same price.

Room was extremely small. Bathroom door stuck and was hard to open as it needs to be cut off on the bottom.

We were there for one night only and I would not recommend it if you were planning staying for more that one night. They mentioned a view of the ocean and it is one of those that you have to go out side and you can get a peek at the ocean

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.

Clean, cute, close to boardwalk

No

The hotel is in a great location to the boardwalk and pier. The rooms are cute, not your average hotel decor, and clean. The office staff was exceptionally helpful and the pool was clean and well maintained. It was a pleasure to stay here.

Location location location!

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!

Its a great basic hotel close to the Boardwalk and pier. Hotel staff was great. They allowed me to keep my car in the hotel lot beyond the normal checkout time which was very nice.

There were some shady looking characters at the hotel, but it seems like that is the norm in Santa Cruz. We had no problems, but there were people you wouldn't want to run into in a dark alley.

Good convenient location

Lot of deferred maintenance. Signs of a leaking ceiling although no apparent signs of mildew. Décor was of the least expensive possible. The place could use an update. The price is high for the quality. Paint was touched up with a different color.

Curtains blow out the door when the door is opened or closing. The unit has a great potential with a small investment to be more appealing.

The desk clerk was great.

The noise was a pain. It wasnt the room in the picture. The animal charge was steep.

Sometimes I feel there is a sacrifice you make when you go through a middle man when booking hotels. When you find a good one stick with it. I most certainly won't venture back to this hotel again primarily because it wasnt the room i wanted from the picture....

The location was great about a block away from boardwalk.

There was no air conditioning unit but the balcony definitely made up for that.

I would stay here again when i return to Santa Cruz.

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.

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.

The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Will definitely come back again.

I did not appreciate the gentleman who checked us in rolling his eyes at me but I could see he was a bit stressed. The rest of the staff was great.

The pool could use some landscaping. Great location!

The room was perfect! Clean and spacious, great bathroom. Great layout, the beds had separate rooms. The pier was in walkable distance. The pool area looked clean and nice. Excellent hotel for the right price!

Breakfast was ok, not great in food choices, no fruit except bananas. The eating space was clean though, and waffles were good.

Location, a very short walk to the warf and board walk.

I am not a big fan of motel type place, strange cars parked just outside my door and window. The free breakfast was very limited and had waffle makers but no syrup.

The room was standard and comfortable. We did not use any of the other amenities but spent our time out on the warf and boardwalk.

This hotel is at a great proximity to the boardwalk and to downtown.

It could be cleaned better.

The place is a bit run down and dirty but it's decent enough. The free breakfast is nothing special and very little room to get what you want if people are already there. They are pet friendly which is cool. The staff is friendly and cool. Poor water pressure. You have to pay for parking if you book through third party. Overall, I knew this was no ritz Carlton before I booked so I knew not to expect much. One night was fine but any more than that would be too much for me. I chose this place for location and it was good for that reason, and that's why I figure they are expensive.

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.
