Stayed one night....right beside pier was fine, nothing special but I would suggest finding cheaper accomadations and saving the money for dinner.

The parking in California is crazy expensive but you can self park here for 22 a night. We looked over a very small beach and the pool. NOT worth the 400.00 a night, really.

After requesting a high floor room at check-in we were given a 3rd floor room and comped $22 a day for parking. Room is smartly furnished with a small lanai (with 2 lawn chairs and a small table). The view is remarkable and the reason for the high daily rate--dead on to the bay with the beach below and to the left with the amusement park and pier. Leaving the slider open, we could hear the surf all night which was very relaxing. The hotel restaurant is upscale, and again pricey. The kids declared the pool the best on their vacation. A nice place overall, but maybe not the best value for the dollar.

Room Tip: All rooms face the bay.

First of all, we rarely sleep past 7am, but this trip we both slept past noon after a wonderful beachfront breakfast on our terrace from room service. The sound of the waves is truly therapeutic. It is worth the extra cost to get an executive suite for the cathedral ceiling and glass walled view of the ocean.
The hotel has recently been remodeled and has a contemporary take on mid-century modern with dashes of complimentary color combinations(very soothing and spa like).
We lucked out with near 80 degree temps and a quiet beach in mid January and were able to sleep with the sliding doors open lulled by the ocean waves. It has become our go to local getaway.

Came down just to eat somewhere near the water on my way to Carmel, decided to stay here for a night and enjoy the area...ended up staying 3 nights. A little pricey, but well worth it. The staff were fantastic, the room service was very good and it was an incredibly relaxing stay, best views from your room..walking distance to the boardwalk and wharf...perfect place to stay, will be a vacation destination for a long time to come, we're already planning our next stay here!

we visit Santa cruz every summer and have stayed at The Dream Inn the last three years The view is awesome and so is the employees ! I love this place.

Room Tip: All rooms have great views but ask for third floor or higher not as much pool noise during the day.
