Dream Inn is Fantastic!
Very pleasantly surprised. Location was great, valet parking, nice décor, this is an older hotel, remodeled rooms are very nice, balcony overlooking the beach was great! All staff were attentive and friendly. Easy walk to Santa Cruz pier with great restaurants and shopping. Beautiful pool, we didn't get a chance to use it. We will definitely stay at the Dream Inn next time we come to Santa Cruz!

Good3.0 / 5
They have made some changes re check in and parking with out letting the guest know before arriving. Very pricey you don't even have the room for 24 hrs. Rooms seem a little worn and to many kids in the spa without parents.

Outstanding5.0 / 5
My family and I come to Santa Cruz quite frequently, especially in the summer. We had been dying to stay at this hotel - I mean, what more could you ask for - right on the beach therefore gorgeous view, heated pool/hot tub, super close - walking distance - to the Boardwalk. Loved everything about this hotel. We ordered room service twice - once for dinner and once for breakfast. It's very hard to eat out with a 2 year old so we really appreciated that they offered room service. To top it off, the food was great! A little pricey but expected for the hotel and area. Love love love it here. Would we stay again?? Absolutely. I fear we can never stay anywhere else because we got a taste of amazing. The view from our balcony alone would be enough reason.

Amazing Location, Good Service, Lumpy Squeaky Beds
Amazing views. The restaurant is really nice - great views, good service. The beds were old, lumpy & squeaky. Not what we expect for a Joie de Vivre Boutique Hotel......
