Beach Street Inn and Suites

Westside Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz

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!!

Over 30 shops and cafes are less than 1km away. The University of California, San Diego is 12 km from Scripps Inn, while Old Town San Diego State Historic Park is 13 km away. San Diego International Airport is 15 km from the property. Nice sized rooms and very clean and comfortable. Comfy bed (my back gives me trouble a lot and I had NONE from this mattress. Very comfy.) and linens. Great shower flow and nice hot water too. (rare in other places I have stayed recently). Terrific location across from the ocean/beaches and great walking area with nice views. Close enough to downtown (about 5 min walk) but outside the hustle and bustle (not that there is much in La Jolla, but still nice quiet area to be in.) Hotel had a nice patio area that overlooks the property across to the ocean and it was so comfy up there. Could have spent our whole time just hanging out there. Staff was extremely friendly and attentive.
