Pacific Inn Santa Cruz Pleasant 6.5 We really liked the fact that it was not noisy. The staff was great... The room was nice and clean.
Santa Cruz Dream Inn, a Joie de Vivre Hotel Excellent 8.6 We check in on a Thursday night. The hotel was quiet. The kids had the pool pretty much to themselves. The location right on the beach was great. Listening to the waves crash was very relaxing. My kids had Friday off from school so we wanted to spend the whole day at the pool and the beach. Check out was 11 am on Friday but they let us enjoy the amenities for the rest of day after we checked out. It was perfect. Since is was a Thursday/Friday in March the boardwalk was closed which is probably why is was so quiet. For me that was a plus...
Ocean Pacific Lodge Very good 8.1 Loved the location and cleanliness. Great value
Fireside Inn Good 7.1 The staff was nice, the room was comfortable and clean, and the location is awesome!!!!

Sea & Sand Inn Excellent 8.6 The views are amazing. The inn is well kept and looks cute on the cliff top. The staff are really friendly and the breakfast, cookies & lemonade in the afternoon and cheese and wine in the evening are lovely touches and show they care about their guests having a good stay.

    • We arrived in Santa Cruz too early to check in, but we were able to rent bikes from the hotel for the day ($20/bike/day, with locks). It was so easy to cruise down to the State Park and Boardwalk from the hotel. Our room was very clean and the bathroom had been recently upgraded - loved the dual showerheads in the big shower. Pool and hot tub looked nice but we did not use them. Easy and plentiful parking onsite. Friendly staff!

    • My wife and I visited Santa Cruz for the weekend. We have visited here many times and stayed at a number of hotels. This one is near the boardwalk and Pacific St. shopping area.

    • One of the cheapest we could find in early Nov. near the Boardwalk. Walking distance to the Boardwalk/beach.

    • Location was great within walking distance to the ocean, Beach Boardwalk, and restaurants. Easy to find and get to. Recognized by local cabs, and cabs were cheaper fairs b/c of the great location in the middle of Santa Cruz

    • The hotel is very close to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, yet not on the noisy strip directly across from the boardwalk traffic. Clean linens everyday. Large room with comfortable king size bed. Friendly staff.
