“Best spot in Santa Cruz”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014 via mobile

We all loved this place and were glad we found it. It was off season and not too crowded so we had the place almost to ourselves.
We had a suite on the top floor which gives you a great view of the pier. It is in walking distance to the pier, boardwalk and shops. Were able to see surfers from here

Friendly staff and very nice decor. Rooms look newly remodeled with bright cheerful colors. Wish it was warmer as the pool looked great.

Would definitely stay here again.

For my 25th birthday I chose to head down to Santa Cruz for a little weekend getaway with my friends. I came across Beach Street Inn and Suites after looking up hotels on Trip Advisor. I was very happy with the other reviews and the location of the hotel which is in walking distance to the boardwalk so I went ahead and booked one night.

After some scheduling rearrangements, I ended up switching from a pool view suite to an ocean view suite (the price was about $70 more) but in my opinion worth it. The ocean view suite that I rented fit up to 6 people, with a separate bedroom, living room a full kitchen. They had a bar top table with stools in the living room as well as deck chairs on the shared patio for our use.

My tips if you plan on staying here:

1. Try to limit yourself to one car. When you reserve the room they make you very aware that they only have space for one car per guest as they are located right across the street from the boardwalk so parking is scarce. However their staff is phenomenal in helping you locate parking and if you are lucky there might be some extra spots on site.

2. Go for an ocean view room. Sure the pool rooms are closer to the parking and the pool, but nothing beats sitting out on your deck having a drink and taking in the view of the Pacific Ocean.

3. Park your car at the hotel and take advantage of the location by walking. Literally below and across from the hotel are shops, restaurants, the beach, and the pier.

In my opinion, this hotel is perfect for everyone from families, to friends, to couples. We had really cool neighbors, the staff was beyond amazing, and the location, just right if you want a nice beach getaway. I will definitely be recommending this hotel to my friends.

Great place to stay with very nice staff. Rooms are comfortable, beautifully decorated (you feel like you are staying in a good friend's guest room), have a lovely view, functional fridge, microwave and coffee maker, unbelievably perfect shower...we'll definitely be back. I thought it might be a bit noisy but it was so quiet we could hear the waves with just a tiny opening in the window.

Room Tip: The lack of an elevator and many stairs might be an issue for some. We didn't mind as it was en...

Great location....walked everywhere. Rooms very cool with relaxed, beachy feel. Great breakfast downstairs in Picnic Basket..really recommend. Staff so nice, helpful and friendly. Beds....found a bit hard, but that could be a preference thing. ONLY DOWNSIDE...REALLY, REALLY BAD WI-Fi. Next time we visit Santa Cruz (which we do rice a year)..,will stay here, but check with them first on if they have improved their wi-fi. For me, that was a downside. So...except for wi-fi....awesome and would recommend.

What a great place to visit and see old California. This was my first visit to this area. The Boardwalk and Pier were very nostalgic and interesting. The Beach Street in was recently renovated. The rooms are very nice with huge bathrooms. Decks & patios are the rooms to have, especially if the weather is nice. They are very large and a great place to relax. Staff was friendly.

We stayed in a suite and it was lovely. Perfect size. Great view. Close to the beach. Loved the fire pit for all guests to use.

Only downfall...slow internet and bad toilet paper. Definitely not deal breakers though! Would stay here again! Thank you!

This was my first time visiting the area the room was very comfortable. The bathroom was Hugh.
The staff was very friendly. It was easy access to the beach and the boardwalk. I will revisit this place again and send my family and friends.
