Had just one night here, and in late November, but still had a great time. I had a waterfront two queen room, which was very large and comfortable, with a full kitchen and terrific balcony looking out to sea. Check-in was quick and friendly.

been coming here for the past 4 years now. I like the rooms and location. For us, Beachstreet is a must stay. Staff was always there for any of our needs. Large parking lot with lots of room. Can not imagine us staying anywhere else.

We enjoyed this hotel very much and had it only offered breakfast we would have rated it a five. But everything else was just fine. Our room had a terrace overlooking the beach and ocean which gave the room an extra touch. Very comfortable beds and a small kitchenette. The Santa Cruz surfer mentality inspires the interior.

Our stay at the Beach Street Inn was marvelous as always. We were welcomed by an efficient, friendly staff that seemed genuinely glad that we were there. Our beautiful upstairs suite (room 405) was immaculately clean, and the view was out of this world. The moment you open the door and see that ocean view, stress just melts away! The... More

Stayed for only 1 night last week but was very impressed. Staff was great and check in was a breeze. Stayed next to the pool where the room was quiet and very comfortable. It looks like the rooms were all recently remodeled. Very nice bathroom and huge shower. The best thing here is the location. Just steps to the beach... More

This hotel was perfect! It was right across the street from the pier. 2 minute walk to the amusements. We could watch surfers to the right, beach volleyball on the beach and sea lions and sea otters frolicking straight ahead in the surf. The hotel was just like in the pictures. Clean, bright, large nice bathroom, nice shared balcony out... More

We had never visited Santa Cruz before, so we weren't sure if this motel would be good or not. That is, even though it got good ratings. Well, it was but a block off the beach, the room was nice, and the shower great! It's elevated high enough that you can see the water right from the pool. If we... More
