Beach Street Inn and Suites

Westside Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz - 350 feet from beach

Centrally located in Santa Cruz, this inn is across from Main Beach. The inn features a courtyard area with picnic tables, an outdoor pool and guest rooms with free WiFi.

Each room at Beach Street Inn and Suites includes a microwave and a refrigerator. Coffee facilities are also provided along with cable TV. O m g stayed there with my boyfriend and still can’t get over how amazing it was! Literally on the warf, fantastic view and the best price in the area. The room was spotless and super comfy (from a double shower, great mattress to how quiet it was, even though a family with kids stayed next door (finally a hotel with real walls rather than cardboard!)). But the most amazing part was the staff: cordial, extremely helpful, accommodating and professional; and I mean from the manager to the cleaning personnel. If we come to Santa Cruz again we will definitely stay there!!
