Convenient to everything and all the staff treat you well! A quick walk out your room gets you to the wharf and a slightly longer walk gets you to downtown Santa Cruz. Best of all, the beach is right outside your room!More

We just love staying at the Dream Inn. It's a paradise get away when we take our son to college. Its close to the Pier and SC Boardwalk, yet just far enough that you aren't right in the middle of the hubbub.More

No resort fees, however parking is an additional $28 per day. It is an hours drive to Monterey/Carmel.Best beachfront hotel on the coast in that area.
