"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
"Very convenient to beach, boardwalk, and pier."
The staff was very friendly and helpful. My room was clean and comfortable. Exterior of hotel could be improved, however it is right by the beach so the salt air may be the reason for the condition of the exterior.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Its close to the beach ,but thats the best I can sayGenuine Expedia guest review
The best part of this hotel was the location. People at front desk were very nice. Older hotel so as expected older rooms. Spent most of our time walking around Santa Cruz. When it came time to sleep bed was very uncomfortable. Worst of all pillows were horrible. Didn't sleep well at all. I still gave the hotel 3 stars because the location is amazing. […] We could see the ocean from the front door of the room. Would book again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"It was OK"
It was an average hotel room that was not anything special. There was a smell that could have been cleaning agents over cigarette smoke. The staff was very friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
Checked in and checked out immediately! The gal at the front desk was super nice, but the room was disgusting.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Needed a place to stay for two nights on Memorial Day weekend. Most hotels were booked up, and as the lady and I were going to see the boardwalk, the location of this place was just perfect. Easily within comfortable walking distance. I was slightly afraid that the proximity to the ocean and the reported age of the place would mean strange and/or midlewy […] smells in the room, but there were none in mine. It turns out that some of the upstairs rooms actually do have views of the ocean! :) The room was small and on the humble side, but very comfortable and clean and not at all falling apart. Microwave and fridge included at no charge upon request. I was very happy with the whole experience - another plus, you get free parking in their private lot right by the beach (which you'd otherwise have to pay for). Very glad I found this place.

"ok for the price"
IFyour on the 2nd floor, watch out for the steep driveway and stairs to get there if your out of shape. Nice view when you get there. Half block from the beach and pier, about a 5 minute walk to arcade and boardwalk. Not a bad place for the price. Clean and a place to sleep. What more do you want.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beachview Inn~so close to EVERYTHING!!!!"
I have stayed here a few times before and this last stay was a girls getaway. It rain the whole entire time, but it did not stop us from doing what we wanted. We had a fantastic time. The only thing that bothered us about the room was that the hair dryer on the wall did not work, but I brought mine anyway. The folks that run the place are super duper […] nice! As a matter of fact.....as we were trying to open our 2nd bottle of wine, the opener broke off and we could not get the cork out....lol....we called the front desk to see if they had a wine opener and Heather (the wife of the couple who run the place) said sure we do. So as we were headed down to go get it, she was on her way up to bring to us....how nice was that? It's not your 5 star Hotel, but when you need a place to stay for a night or two it's perfect. Not to mention how incredibly close you are to everything.....Boardwalk, Fishermans Pier, restaurants, and shopping. And if you want to take a ride into Capitola, it's not far at all. Great shopping, restaurants and of course.....Margaritaville! All in all....I would recommend this hotel, and will visit again! : ) Hope this helped. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Staying at this hotel was not good at all. We were very uncomfortable. The mattress was old. The T.V was old. There was no conditioner. It smells very bad even though it was a non smoking room. The toilet was about to fall. It was loose and made noise.There was no trash can in room. We were glad we stayed only one night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We love the location! 2 minutes from the pier! We had a nice stay. It was quiet and the staff was friendly. We will be returning next time we are in town.Genuine Expedia guest review
I was only there for a day, but it was perfect. Definitely an older style hotel, but for the price and location to the beach it was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location was close to the boardwalk and the pier which was the best about the motel. We were were very disapointed about the unclean condition of the room. The carpets were in dire need of shampooing or of a total replacement. There was also an odor of mold or mildew in the room. Because of these conitions we definately did not take off our shoes […] or socks. The restroom also had a smell of sewer. The rate was good but the rest we were very disappointed.

"Will NEVER go back."
Pictures on website deceiving. Bathroom smelled of urine. Beds uncomfortable, bedding old and frayed, two pillows provided that were small and flat. Carpet stained and dirty. Considered NOT checking in when saw outside and location of the hotel. Although it was close to boardwalk and beach, it seemed very runned down, dingy and dark. The staff was very […] nice and courteous. We did have to call them to tell them there were no bath towels in the room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I recently stayed here for a wknd and it was pleasant. We came from Santa Rosa and didnt get in until 230 am and were still able to check in. The front desk person was so courteous, despite our late check in and waking her up from her sleep. The only thing I was irked about was I put the maid service sign up and my room wasn't attended to. Other than […] that, the location is great, and its comparable to the other hotels in the area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cheap, too cheap"
Old looking and feeling old, and not in the nostalgic way. We had to pull our heavy suitcases up to the second floor of this two story building, climbing up bare concrete external stairs,only to get to a room wich had a shabby door with a primitive old style lock, hardly safer than leaving the luggage in the trunk of our car. Breakfast was minimal and […] had to be eaten in the tiny lobby which had hardly a place to sit in. We survived, but this was only because all we wanted was a room for the night. This is not a place I would like to come back to or recommend to anybody else. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, subpar amenities"
There are good and bad things to say about this motel. First the good. The location is fantastic. Just a short walk to the beach, boardwalk and wharf. Directly across the street an extension to the Monterey Bay Aquarium is being built that is scheduled to be open early next year. There is a pizza by the slice place adjacent to the motel, and several […] other restaurants within walking distance. However...the room was very dated and not too clean. Specifically, the mattress and box spring had what appeared to be coffee stains all down the side. The worst part though was the mattress. It almost felt like sleeping on concrete. If you choose to stay, bring your own pillows as theirs were paper thin. If you are just looking for an inexpensive place to stay near the boardwalk, you could do worse. Just don't expect a lot of frills. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Though the Beachview Inn is a worn and has seen better days, the location is excellent and the staff is extremely friendly. The room was as clean as it could be for the condition it was in. Service with a smile, helpful tips and suggestions on what to do were greatly appreciated. I will be staying there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, quiet, good value!"
When we first saw the motel, we were dismayed -- I was sure I had made a mistake in booking a room there. But the room was comfortable and very clean, the young couple managing the place friendly and accommodating, the place surprisingly quiet (surprising because it is half a block from the beach and on a Saturday night). I would not hesitate to go […] there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Sleeping on a board"
Check-in & check-out was easy and friendly. Hotel is close to the wharf and boardwalk. Room was no frills but clean. My only problem is that the bed was hard. It was like sleeping on a board. The pillows were rather flimsy as well. I was on the second floor and you could clearly hear the next room and things shook slightly when someone walked by on […] the outside hallway. I'd recommend this motel put an ashtray container, the next morning butts littered the parking lot. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location, Awesome Staff"
This little motel is a bit dated...but its quiet and located right by everyplace you want to be in Santa Cruz. The Rooms are very clean! The Management was very nice and welcoming! I would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location at Beachview Inn"
My room had an ocean view. Quiet at night, close to west cliff drive and the pier. Very convient, close to good coffee and food at The Picnic Basket on Beach St. Good breakfast on the pier. Location is just right for a walking vacation. Standard room w/ microwave and fridge, cable tv and phone. Very plain, but the location was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Average stay, average area"
I needed a room for just one night, and the hotel was conveniently located to where I needed to be early the next morning. It was an average room, mattress was a bit uncomfortable. Nice staff, but there was no one in the office when I needed to check out early. I called and someone came right awayGenuine Expedia guest review
"Walking distance from beach"
The room was a non-smoking room, yet there was cigarette butts in the garbage can as well as on the AC outside the room. Very clean otherwise. My main complain was the bed. Super old bed. A better bed would have made a great difference!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The host were very accommodating. . The rooms could use some updating It is an old hotel, The price is right.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Could not beat the location for the price room was old but clean tv small but worked short walk to the warf and that part made everything else OKGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall, not a good experience. I don't think u should be kept up the night before graduation due to police raiding ur hotel. Call me crazy!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Modest, but well worth the money."
The staff was friendly. The location couldn't be beat, right near the wharf. Very modest accomodations, but you can't beat the price for the location. It had a mini-fridge and microwave. I plan on using them again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"beach view inn"
Nice hotel for the price. Walking distance to the wharf and the boardwalk. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful. The room was clean but the bed was a little hard. We plan on going back, we will bring an eggcrate for bed. Enjoyed our stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bed and Breakfast at the Beach"
What a nice little hotel. Located right near the Santa Cruz Pier, the hotel was clean, very well decorated, and very comfortable. When we checked in, we were met by the charming couple that runs the place. The room had a great view, a jacuzzi tub, and was very new and comfortable. We liked the fact that it was in walking distance to the Boardwalk, the […] beach, and the pier. A definite must for anyone visiting the Santa Cruz beach!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"CLose to the beach"
Good location close to the beach and downtown. The parking is challenging as is getting your bags to your room. The ground is not level and the stairways and hallway are very narrow. It was quiet enough and the staff did a good job of cleaning the room every dayGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close o Santa Cruz Surf"
Place was great but the carpet smelled as though it's been wet and left to dry multiple times... a little musty.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
