“Great property right on the water”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2013

I spent two nights here, and was very happy. Parking is plentiful, though the upper deck is less than convenient. When I checked in, I was not told about the continental breakfast, so I missed it the first morning. But, the room was comfortable, and relatively spacious, and a good value, so I will return when I'm in the area.

Thank you for your responding to your stay with us at Coastview Inn. We do offer clean and comfortable rooms right across the street from the beach and boardwalk. Our free parking is a real time saver of having to look for a space or pay for parking , as ours is free for our guests. We are sorry you missed out on the free continental breakfast provided for our guests and will take that up with the front desk to remind then to share that information to all our guests.Our value that we offer is incredible when you put all the benefits together and you saying you will stay again is what we love to hear from our guests. See you soon!

Thank you for responding to your stay with us at Coastview Inn. You have us dead on when you say we are a great beach property for the price. We offer clean and comfortable rooms for your stay and also offer free parking for our guests. Our location is one of the best as we are about 10 min from downtown for more venues to check out. We look forward to your next stay with us when you are in our area.

If you're looking for beachfront experience and don't care about luxury, this is the place! Clean, friendly and close to everything you need. We've stayed twice and have no complaints. A true beach feel, serenaded by seals and waves in the morning! Downtown just a short level 10 minute walk. Great restaurant right next door.

Thank you for your review of your stay at Coastview Inn. It is always an honor to see guests come back to stay with us. We provide a clean and comfortable room that happens to be across from the beach and boardwalk. Our free parking offers a benefit when traveling with a lot of luggage to get to the room and not having to drive around for a parking space or pay for parking either as it is free for our guests. We are about 10 min from downtown as you mention so it is an easy level walk for other attractions. We look forward to having you stay with us again when in our area.

Great price for late September, the other high priced hotels are still charging $3-400 just. 1 block North. You are literally across the street from the beach, went to meditate on the beach in shorts and a t-shirt at 10 PM. The only disappointment was the breakfast, toast, packaged danish, cereal, milk, juice and coffee. How about a little fruit, yogurt and bagels?

Thank you for your review of your stay at Coastview Inn. We appreciate the glowing report you are giving as far as location being wonderful across from the boardwalk and beach. Also free parking for our guests is a great benefit we provide so you don't have to go searching for a place to park to go to the beach with your family. We also include a continental breakfast for your enjoyment as we are all on the go and need something quick in the morning when we have a full schedule of FUN!
Clean comfortable rooms are what counts though when staying at our motel and we look forward to seeing you on your next stay to our area

Coastview Inn is a small, clean hotel right across the street from the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, pier and beach. Great location at a decent price. Includes free parking and continental breakfast (cereal, toast, packaged pastries, coffee).

The best reason to stay at the Coastview Inn is the location as it is across the street from the beach and boardwalk. This hotel needs a few upgrades to rate more than low average. The room was clean but in need of a face lift and a current guest services folder ( ours had the middle sections missing). The lobby was difficult to find as it is hidden behind a set of stairs. Parking is limited so get there early. The breakfast consisted of coffee and packaged sweets which seems more of an afternoon snack than a meal.

Thank you for your glowing review of your stay at our Coastview Inn. After reading your review makes me want to make a reservation! Your right about the atmosphere as it is perfect for the guest looking for the wonderful California beach activity. Also, not having to worry about parking is great when it comes to getting up close with rooms to unload. Our location is so close to many venues you will be pleased you chose our motel. Clean and comfortable rooms are our priority which just add to the motel attraction so next time you are in the area we look forward to hosting your stay.

Overlooking the beach and the boardwalk, the constant activity was a main feature...festive, athletic, beautiful combined to create a prime California beach atmosphere. The extra $20 to have a beach view was definitely worthwhile. We loved the Inn.

Room Tip: Room 203 was perfect!

Thank you for all your wonderful comments on our motel at the Coastview Inn. It is our priority to provide clean and comfortable rooms for our guests. Also as you point out, a low rate increase of $20.00 for a beach view, is very reasonable and quite nice when you are relaxing in your room. When finding parking gets to be a problem or there is a fee to park somewhere how nice it is to be able to walk to several venues and not have a care since we offer off street parking. The amusement park being right down the boardwalk provides fun for the whole family so when you are in our area we look forward to seeing you again!
