This was the last stop on our Northern California tour, and the hotel didn't disappoint. Our room was spectacular, with full width sliding glass doors and a balcony looking out over the beach, the Boardwalk and the Pacific ocean.
Drifitng off to sleep with the sound of the ocean gently lapping on the beach was perfect, and such a restful end to a wonderful holiday.
The room was large, clean and well presented, and the staff were very helpful and friendly.
Our only disappointment was the very prompt closing of the bar; we wanted to enjoy a cocktail on our balcony on our last night, but on phoning room service at 11:05pm were told that the bar closed at 11:00.
Santa Cruz itself was a bit disappointing, we found the Boardwalk area to feel a bit seedy and tacky, even in the early evening, and having looked at all the restaurants around that area decided to eat at the hotel (which was superb).
Dream Inn is a great place to stay, and eat, even though Sanata Cruz didn't live up to expectations.
