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. ... more

The locaton was amazing! Right on the water with amazing views.

Having to find our way to the resturant/cafe. You have to go outside the hotel, back in, and down some stairs. Once there the menu was small but the food was good. Front desk did not have change for the valet¿costly to park.

The interior was far beyond anything I have seen before. Bright colors, modern, clean lines and yet comfortable. Very well put together. ... more

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. ... more

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.

The front desk receptionist Antoinette was helpful & friendly.

The hours of breakfast...perhaps could extend for late risers. The price was a bit high for what you get. Other lower budget hotels in general vacinity were similar as far as rooms & decor.

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! ... more

The location was awesome. A little seedy, but right on the water.

The front desk said they closed at 10:00 but when I got back to the hotel at 9:45 the key to my room didn't work. I went to the front desk to get a new key it was already closed and their 'emergency hotline number' was to the phone in the closed office.

I went to the front desk to get a new key it was already closed and their 'emergency hotline number' was to the phone in the closed office. My boyfriend and I ended up having to find another hotel at 10:00 at night with all our things locked up in our original room. The next day when we went back to the hotel to talk to the front desk they weren't even aware that anybody had even called the night before even though we left them three messages. For this reason I will never recommend this hotel to anybody. ... more

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. ... more

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. ... more

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.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
