Good3.0 / 5
Not the Ritz but it's in a good spot & cheap.
Chaotic scene while checking in. One guest was throwing a fit because a dog pooped near the pool and no one cleaned it up, it was still there the next day. Next guest issue was their room was flooded. The girl at the desk was not surprised as it happened a couple days prior, apparently. She handled all the issues very well considering how rude some people were being to her. And she was the only person working at the entire hotel at that time. Severely understaffed. My room was on the second floor, it was clean, an good sized. Pretty good value overall.

Stay somewhere else...
air conditioner was SO LOUD and did not even get cold. Room was very warm and stuffy, not a good night sleep at all.

Great for Gatherings
This was a yearly family gathering once a year in Santa Cruz, and planned early in the year. This hotel, Bay Front Inn Santa Cruz did check the boxes for comfortable surroundings and family gathering. If booked early, the room including breakfast was above average at a reasonable price. The Bay Front Inn staff were outstanding making sure our stay was relaxing, and went out of their way to accommodate our request, especially making sure the rooms were close together. Unfortunately, the Bay Front Inn needs an interior update and better maintenance protocol; the TV’s did not work well, the refrigerators are either old or cheap- did not work very well. However, the staff did discount us for all the troubles for electronics…GREAT STAFF! The rooms are clean and well groomed. This is a pet friendly hotel, and the location is great, near the boardwalk. Another plus, if you don’t want to drive, they allow you to use their bicycles and there is a bike shop across the street. Down the street from Bay Front Inn is a store for convenience and a soccer park. We recommended it and would come back.

Nice, clean motel and very pet friendly. Hardwood floors and some updated furniture. The bathroom could us a remidel, but clean. Santa Cruz Motels can be unpredictable - this one was very affordable and safe.

Parking fees added, no parking available
Very small rooms at a steep price. Parking was inadequate, even though we had to pay extra for it, which was not clear when checking in. Don't go here! One of the front desk staff was very rude, while the others were nice or in training. The in training person made my check in unbearably long.
