We're so happy to have found that hotel in walking distance to the beach and great clean rooms and a nice bit bathroom! The beach and the pier are around 600m walk, there's one surf spot directly on the beach (unfortunately really crowded) Enjoy!

We stayed at the Pacific Blue Inn for one night and loved how clean and fresh the property/rooms were kept. It was close enough to restaurants to walk to dinner. A light breakfast was offered in the am which was perfect for our needs (english muffins, yogurt, fruit, coffee). Check in was a breeze with a very friendly and personable...

Christmas weekend 2016 Never again. The room was okay, clean and well decorated. The staff were fine. Good bagels. I was here for a winter holiday weekend away from home at the coast. I love Santa Cruz but always go home after a day and evening there, because I live over the hill, and it's an extravagance to stay over...

Picked while on a business trip but staying over for the weekend. Wow, what a nice surprise! Bed is probably the most comfy I have had in several years of traveling. Boutique style of rooms and bath with electric fireplace, great lighting, and the best comforter! Great service and easy walk to stroll Pacific area shopping and eats. Amazing overnight...

Excellent 9 room Bed & Breakfast Inn that’s located in a great area. Approximately 5 mins walk from shops and food joints and approximately 10 mins walk to the Boardwalk/beach. The host was very personable and courteous during our visit. Delicious homemade cookies were available upon our arrival, in which I found to be a nice touch. The rooms are...

Lovely place to stay. Had more of a guest house feel than a hotel. Very clean, very quiet and the most perfect location to access the harbour and town. Parking and check in were a breeze. Hotel room was very clean. Nice court yard as well.

The staff who we interacted with were completely on top of everything, cordial and very helpful. The room was tidy and clean, of a reasonable size, and the bed very comfortable. Why the middle of the road review? This may be one of the best inns in Santa Cruz but it's a steep price for very basic accommodations. Everything is...

We Just stayed one night, what we like that it was not far to the pier, downtown and the boardwalk in Santa Cruz. The room was small but very clean and cozy, but because it was hot we had to leave the portable air conditioning on through the night and it was very noisy, this is the only complaint we...

I will update this review after we complete our stay. We just checked in today, and the room is very attractive, with an extraordinarily comfortable bed. But the reason I wanted to post now is that the amazing breakfast that has been raved about on the site and in other reviews is, sadly, no more. I was informed by the...

I spent 1 night here in May and the staff went out of their way and were very accommodating the second I stepped foot in the lobby to check-in. The BnB is located within walking distance of both the water and Santa Cruz downtown. The only thing I was a little confused about was the breakfast. Apparently they stopped serving...
