Was a decent hotel, staff was nice, rooms were a bit small but clean. Walking distance to the beach. Would definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Helpful manager, near the boardwalk & beach"
The place was fine, exactly what one expects in this price range and location. It was quiet, tidy, simple, clean. The manager was very helpful about local information. The place is located a half block from the beach and the boardwalk. Great location. The "breakfast" is pretty meager, but there is a cafe at the corner with an ocean view that offers […] an inexpensive breakfast special (eggs, bacon, potatoes, toast ...) Good little economy place if you're all about the beach and the rides. Very easy going about parking both before check-in and after check-out. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is right across the street from the wharf and just a hop skip and jump from Boardwalk. The parking is off the street, so it is a safe place to park your car. The room is okay, clean. Has micro wave and refridge that are both clean and working. I was taking a mini vacay with my grandson. The continential breakfast is a little weak. Cereal, […] juice, coffee and Danish, which is pretty good also, except the coffee was like water. Next time I would walk around to corner to Peets and get coffee. It was good for me and my grandson. We had a good time, no complaints. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Inn needs some TLC"
I've stayed here a few times now and each year the condition of the rooms seems to get worse. Carpet is so dirty now I refused to let my child walk barefoot, shower was filthy and stopped up, comforter was tattered. Prices keep going up but it doesn't appear any funds are being allocated to the basic upkeep of the property. I've been a repeat customer […] for years but I've never seen the Inn in this bad of a shape. It was repulsive. Don't think I'll be coming back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Roller coaster a must do!!!!"
The Manager was wonderful!!! He stayed up it we got there. Meter showers had us running late.... Plus we were hungry so we asked where to eat at 1:00 am he directed us very nicely. Bed and room a typical beach area motel. We heard seals and smelled the ocean. Its a great price for peak season for a stop over along the hwy. 1Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quiet and Great Location"
The room was surprisingly quiet, despite the hotel being very full. And you can't beat the location...one block walk to the beach and boardwalk.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to all locations."
It is an older small hotel but the rooms are clean and the staff was friendly. Great location for a week long stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worst hotel I've stayed at."
Dirty. Never in my life thought I would pay $180 a night for a hotel where I couldn't even sit on the toilet cause it looked so dirty. So not worth the price. The air conditioner worked when it wanted to resulting in me not getting much sleep.Genuine Expedia guest review
not the best area to stay with a family to begin with. The room was damp smelling and signs of mold in the bathroom. Plus the bed still had hair on the sheets, uuckGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Boardwalk and Wharf"
Great location for walking along West Cliff drive & only 15 walk from downtown. Good ocean & Wharf view from room - get 14 or 15 if you can.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Careful with Room Rate"
They charged extra $20 during checking even after me paying full amount during online booking, they said its due to tax change but it sounded fishy. Room was ok and the beach was no where in the view and breakfast was nothing worth mentioning. but its a short walk to the beach, and good spot to stay in the Santa Cruz.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not worth the price"
Small rooms are dated. Furniture in room is dirty. There is no "beach view." The only thing this hotel has is good location. 5-10 minute walk to beach & boardwalkGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location, not much else"
Bad carpet, toilet rocked when you sat on it, 70's linens. The only thing about the hotel that was acceptable was the close location to the wharf/boardwalk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Next to Beach"
It was ok I liked it was close to things an had free wifiGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic for the price!"
Cheap, close to the pier & boardwalk.... not a fancy place by any means - but serves the purpose. Breakfast was a joke... but we didn't pick it for the breakfast. It did come with a fridge which was awesome. No shampoo/conditioner... again, I brought my own - I didn't expect much. Staff was incredibly accommodating.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to beach"
It is very close to beach. You can walk to beach in 5 to 10 minutes. The staff there is nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"First and Only Time Here"
While the workers here are nice, and the location can't be beat, this place is just not worth it. I really wish I had spent and extra $50 for a nice hotel. Dirty dirty carpets, stained floors and chairs, the lighting above the bed was loose and hanging over some, there were two options for lighting in the room and so it was relatively dark, and the […] room smelled soooooo funky. The bed didn't even have a fitted sheet, and the comforter was stained with holes in it. The only pros in the room were the T.V. and the shower since it was spacious. They have a continental breakfast- this is bad tasting coffee, tampico instead of OJ, cereal, and pre-packaged store-bought pastries. I'm not a picky, finicky, or high-maintenance person, but this hotel made me feel very uncomfortable when staying in it- I was scared to touch anything really.

"Hop skiip jump from the bardwalk"
The rate was surprising low for July and we got a very nice room. The room was very clean including the shower. Now for the downfall, bed was hard as a rock, pillows flat as a pancake. Soap the size of a chicklet and NO shampoo nor a blowdryer (bring your own). The towels are small pieces of cheese cloth but clean for you can smell the bleach. The hotel […] wasn't easy to find but once we did it had secure parking and we couldn't check into our room for it was only 1 pm and check in was at 4 but they let us park our car and walk to the boardwalk until our room was ready. The pier and boardwalk were only a block away so we never had to drive anywhere and pay for parking, big plus. I would highly recommend this hotel for I have been to several others in the area and this was cleaner, closer and priced much better at $97 for a Thursday night ( that included tax).

Typical beach motel but room was clean although 90's decor. Mattress really firm (hard), thin blanket. Most basic "continental breakfast" I've ever experienced. Resident manager was great but it was her last week with no replacement hired yet so hopefully they'll find someone as good. Located close to boardwalk and wharf. No elevator so us 2 girls had […] to schlep our bags up the stairs. Free wifi in room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Two blocks from the pier"
Room was tiny and smelled like cats, but somehow we managed to sleep well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok for the price"
Hotel staff very friendly and pleasant. Small motel with doors opening to parking lot. Parking right outside room was convienent. Room smelled a bit musty like it had been closed up for awhile. Bed was ok (not a Hilton heavenly bed by any means but not terriblly hard either). Carpet old. Linoleum in bathroom old and stained. Fixtures were old. Shower […] ok. Close to beach. Overall ok for what we wanted-an inexpensive overnight getaway. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The young couple running the place are awesome. I always ask for a room with a view and I can usually see the ocean. The best rates for a place that close to the beach. Nothing fancy about the rooms but who is there to spend time in the room?Genuine Expedia guest review
Pleasant. Good location. Nice staff Easy walk to the wharf.Genuine Expedia guest review
Stayed here for 3 days and 2 nights. Had a nice view. Was really quiet and not a lot of noise which was nice. Literally 2 minutes walking distance to the boardwalk. Beds could have been more soft, but hey thats alright. The service was great! Would stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Wonderful Place to stay."
Staff at the hotel very helpful and nice. Hotel is only a 2 minute walk to the Pier, Beach, & Boardwalk. Room very clean with fridge & microwave. Overall a very good Hotel to say at. We will stay there again in the future.Genuine Expedia guest review
The blankets and towels were old and falling apart. The carpet was filthy. The bathroom door would not close. The toilet had never been cleaned well.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was clean and comfortable. I wish the continental breakfast was served earlier. Didn't start til 8am so i missed it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect location to the Wharf & Boardwalk"
Location is why we selected this hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms are definitely outdated. Being a non-smoking hotel, I was annoyed that our next door neighbors stood out front of our window and smoked causing us to not be able to open our window. Overall, we were in Santa Cruz for a night and the only time we were in the room was […] to sleep. Definitely would recommend for the location, not if you intend to spend a lot of time in the room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great room, great service. The hotel is only 2 mins walking distance from the wharf and maybe 5 mins walking from the board walk. I will definitely use them again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right next to the municipal wharf"
Location is great, with easy access to the beach, wharf, and walking paths along the sea cliff. The building is not new, so people who demand all modern amenities should look elsewhere and pay for that extra benefit.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Walking distance from the BEACH!"
Walking distances from the beach.....unbeatable. No need to find parking. Was Great. Staff is niceGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great for the price & can't beat the location"
We got a deal on Expedia and didn't know what to expect, but we were very pleased with the room & the cleanliness of everything. Can't beat the view! It was a very comfortable walking distance from downtown and the Boardwalk. The staff were wonderful as well, very friendly and helpful. Great price for a great stay!Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was overall great for the price! The service was amazing! The lady was very helpful with anything we needed!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"An ok place"
This place is ok for the money. You are certainly in the heart of it all. There are a lot of stairs as its on a hillside. There is a tight parking lot. But it's manageable. The carpet and bedding left a lot to be desired. But everything else seemed pretty clean. If it was anywhere else this would be unacceptable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
carpet needing cleaning. chairs in room old and dirty. overall good stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice location. Staff was great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Boardwalk"
A good price for a great location and close to Santa Cruz Boardwalk and right next to Pier. Overall a good time and Friendly staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is a great place to stay. It was nothing fancy but room was clean and It was less than a 5 minute walk to the boardwalk which was nice because we could come back whenever needed. The man and lady at the front were super nice. we had no problems with this hotel at all. Definitely will stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Just the right little crashpad hotel. Great staff, clean and super convenient.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
There was a drunk that played rap music real loud and was a painGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to water and pier"
Room reeked of Pinesol making it unpleasant to spend any time in. "Breakfast" term was a stretch - very sparse and limited. Walked to the pier and had a good breakfast overlooking the water instead. Front desk people were very friendly and efficient. Gave us an "oceanview room". Well, we could see some blue across the way. Would be a good place if you […] were going to spend minimal time in the room because you can walk to water, pier, boardwalk, restaurants. For the money spent, didn't have the usual amenities, but other higher end places in the neighborhood charge even more. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I would recommend the Beachview Inn to anyone looking for a short stay in Santa Cruz. You can literally walk to the pier in 2 minutes and you have a nice view of the ocean and palm trees if you stay on the upper floor from the convenience of your room. The rooms are adequate and very comfortable slightly firm mattress which I prefer. Nothing special, […] but perfect location to the Boardwalk for a weekend getaway. I would highly recommend the Beachview Inn. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The location was awesome! The hotel itself is clean and well-managed, however it's not updated, so all the furnishings are 90s-esque. The "continental breakfast" was lame and disappointing, and consisted of corn flakes, rice krispies or danish, with coffee, milk or sunny d (not even orange juice). But the service was great, the prices were competitive, […] and I'd stay there again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"1 night stay"
Very helpful staff. Very close to Warf and Boardwalk so an easy walk. Also fairly quiet. We needed maintenance right away (clogged toilet) and the staff immediately came to take care of it. I would recommend it for a simple stay, nothing fancy but a comfy bed and location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good stay before a race"
I stayed one night before a race. It was great. very clean and quiet.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Just needed a room and close to the Boardwalk."
On our way to Pismo Beach we decided to stop in Santa Cruz to just hang out at the Boardwalk and beach for just a night. Really, all we were looking for was a room with a bed, a lockable door, and 4 walls plus a ceiling. That is was we exactly got. It's not spectacular, but for the money and location (literally a block away from the Boardwalk) it was […] perfect for us. So if your just looking for a place near the beach and attraction, this is a great place! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Why would you stay anywhere in Santa Cruz?????"
Wonderful little place just a block off of the main drag, far enough away that you don't get all the street noise. And there is street noise--cars, people in various stages of inebriation, revving motorcycles, yelling back and forth. Who needs it?! We slept with the window open both nights to get some breeze and never got woke up by rowdies or other […] guests. I can't say enough good things about the location. And realy value for your money. The front desk person was friendly and helpful and seemed genuinely interested in helping us have a good time on our first visit to Santa Cruz. If we ever go back there, we will stay at the Beachview Inn. Yes!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Affordable price, great location"
Excellent location - 5 minute walk to the boardwalk or pier and a great price. Room was small but clean and comfortable. Not setup for someone looking to hang out at their hotel - no pool, no patio - but as a base to come back to at the end of a day on the boardwalk or exploring the Santa Cruz coast its perfect. I'll definitely be going back.Genuine Expedia guest review
"close to boardwalk and downtown"
i was a little worried when i first checked in because it seems like some of the rooms may be being used as residences. there was some kind of drama happening in the room next door when i first got there that made feel somewhat unsafe and definitely unwilling to leave anything valuable in the room when i went back out. that said, the room was in good […] condition-clean and neat. and when we came back at night we didn't have any trouble with noise from any of the other rooms. bonus for being steps away from the boardwalk and walking distance to the downtown strip!

"Location was great!"
We loved the location, 2 minutes walk to the pier! We needed to pick up a few incidentals and the Walgreens was walking distance too. Free breakfast was just right for us. Overall, we had a nice stay. The staff was friendly and helpful with directions. When we return to Santa Cruz, we would stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
