"Economical no frills, great neighborhood"
My husband and I just wanted an inexpensive place to sleep so we could jaunt down to see our daughter in college and take her to dinner. As hotels.com was offering a 50% off if booked now, kinda thing, we decided it was time. We appreciated the fridge in the room and the bed was perfectly comfortable. I'd probably bring my own blanket next time as the thin bedspread being the only warmth offered was a little measly. There was ample free parking, which was very appreciated and it is a 3 minute walk to the pier and boardwalk. As we did not take this trip to spend time in the room, we did not miss the extras. The desk people were perfectly helpful and friendly when we checked in.

"Good motel for low budget in Santa Cruz"
On a road trip down the coast with my wife. Stayed two nights in Santa Cruz and this hotel was a great value. Better location up on a hill than other similar hotels in the area and slightly less expensive than the others as well.

"Needs renovation, didn't feel very safe"
The good: close to the Boardwalk and the wharf. Reception staff is friendly and nice. The bad: old, needs renovation (old-time locks and keys); tricky parking; shady trashy ppl on premises (we had weird looking guys sitting on stairs and staring at us, two girls), the noisy bar right across the street.

"Great Stay, clean room, & nice staff!"
We had a great stay here, so we decided to stay an extra night. GREAT location, clean room, with TV, fridge and Microwave. Its nothing fancy, but who cares, you are a block from the beach! Front desk and customer service were really great. Nice to have a parking spot at the hotel as well, as parking is not easy in that area. Will stay here again for sure...stay in room 104....nicer flat panel TV.

Wanted to get awsy from yhe city and decided to ride down thr coast. I csme upon Santa Cruz snd immediately fell in love. Looked for a hotel eith a affordable price and came upon the Beachview. Made my reservation blindly, because I neber stayed there and I was pleasantly surprised. The staff at the desk ( husband & wife) wete excellent hosts, cheerful and friendly. Immediately, I was offeted a room with a beach view for an extra $10 which I gladly accepted. The room was comfortable, quaint and clean. My stay was wonderful. I'm looking forward to staying there again.

This hotel had a great location--would recommend for this--we were only staying for one night so it was okay--Very small rooms--but very clean--just older--But again if you want a place that is priced right and you spend very little time in the room this will work--Can't imagine more than 2 people in these rooms! People who run it are very nice!! J

"Get a new manager."
Horrible service. Cool people who checked us in to the hotel.. Room was awful, smelled like bleach and gave us headaches, a creepy van with blankets hung up right outside our door. Tried getting a refund to stay somewhere else instead, the manager had no social skills whatsoever, after pretty much yelling at me that I couldn't get a discount, and telling us to "meet him outside and talk".. We didn't feel comfortable there at all, so we dropped off the key and headed somewhere else with no refund. I will never return. Get a new manager, that guy was crazy.

"Great location and helpful staff but ...."
.... outside of summer months the motel (like many in Santa Cruz) is used to house homeless people due to a laudable attempt by the city to cope with that problem. In our case this meant loud talking outside and occasionally during the night.

"Ok for young couples, collage students."
Excellent location. Easy to findand Smooth check in. Room was basic. Space is enough for two not more. There are microwave and fridge. Was guaranteed excellent security by the management at check in but both locked mt. Bikes were stolen in the first night. Was so sad watching the security tape. Breakfast was very basic but the fruits consisted just 4 bananas for the whole hotel so be there before 8 am. Would be nice to have a couple more towels, shampoo, soap in the room. They did a good job cleaning. Bed was comfy. Probably not for families or single ladies with kids. There are few single guys live over there. They act little filerty in some ways. In general, this is your place if you just need a place to sleep at night. You can beat the location.

I stayed here for two nights based around the Big Kahuna triathlon. It was a great location very close to the transition area and swim start. Perfect location for the race and pretty reasonably priced. The rooms were kinda small but cozy and great for a single person or couple. Overall I'd recommend the place for a quick Santa Cruz getaway

"Beach view"
The beds are just a mattress without a fitter sheet. They put a flat sheet on the botto and it didn't even cover the entire mattress. The top blankets are very old and ultra thin. The dresser drawers don't stay on their tracks and fall out every time you open them. The bathroom sink dripped the entire time. Definitely on the low scale for hotels. When you check in and leave they barely say two words to you. Guests are definitely not their priority.

"Nice hotel, close to beach and boardwalk."
The directions were easy to follow. Although picture on website a lttle different than actual site, we were happy with the whole property. Parking on site a little tight but doable. Check-in was easy and pleasant. Room window had a view of wharf. Staff accomodatd our daughter of 7 by getting us a roll away bed. You need to request the extras (e.g., iron, microwave, blankets) and they had no problem providing. Continental breakfast is not Best Western, but it has coffee, tea, chocolate, OJ, cereal, bananas, apples, and rolls. Theree was an incident wth one of the occupants was loud, obnoxoius, pounding on doors at 2am, police called. It was a little scary because it was a couple of doors away and there had been two smaller incidents during the day that made it a nervous situation. I think the hotel should have asked them to leave immediately. The occupants were still there that morning.

"Worst experience in along time"
The only redeeming feature was the proximity to Warf, Beach and also being close to downtown Santa Cruz. The mattress was literally falling apart. When I lifted the sheet the entire inside of the mattress was exposed. I could see the springs and spacers. The towel bar in the bath was coming out of the wall on one side. The bathroom door would not open all the way without hitting the sink/counter. The sink area had old cigarette burns in the counter top. The bedside lamp on one side of the bed was loose and crooked where it was mounted to the wall. AND, there was no clock in the room, and when I asked I was told hey don't have clocks in any of the rooms. Also the TV was a standard tube probably about 15 years old. The WIFI did work, although it was somewhat intermittent. When issues were brought to the staff the response was that they were not the owners, but would pass things on. Since I had prepaid the room (Non refundable), and there was nothing else available even close to the price in the area we stuck it out.

"Mediocre, Yet Appealing"
The best attribute about the Beachview Inn is its location. It is a two minute walk to the Santa Cruz Wharf. It is a four minute walk to the Boardwalk. It is a short walk to Pacific Ave. and the shops. The rooms are adequate - that is it provides a fairly comfortable bed, a sink, a toilet, a shower, a desk and chair, and a t.v. The walls are very thin so sound travels easily. We felt like this hotel was a good choice because of the low price and the location. If you are unfortunate enough to get loud neighbors though, like we did during our second night, don't count on a good night sleep. The people in the room next to us were loud until 4:00 A.M. Despite three nice requests of them to quiet down, they did not. The worst part was that we tried to phone the on-site managers twice during the night and rang their door bell several times, with no response. The next morning, when we contacted the managers, they took no responsibility for not answering the phone or door bell. The told us it was too bad the our neighbors were so loud. That was it. No apology for their lack of response and no mention of them being responsive in the future. Also, the cleaning crew cleans on their schedule, not yours. At 4:15 P.M., when we returned to our room after a full day of activity, our room was still not cleaned. We told the cleaning crew we needed to take showers. Their response was, if we can not clean your room right now, we will not clean it today.
