What a fabulous location, beautiful views and so close to everything!

Beautiful!!! Really living up it’s name! Perfect location, very clean, all of the staff was friendly! We really enjoyed our stay.

So this is an updated, yet historic hotel on the beach in Santa Cruz. It is exactly what I wanted. Clean, comfortable queen beds, excellent location, free wifi, a/c (rarely needed in Santa Cruz) worked perfectly for us during an unusually hot spell. Valet parking was something like $28/day with in and out privileges. Did not try restaurant or room service. Family friendly. Great place to learn how to surf.

Love that is right on the water. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmnn

Fantastic view. Super friendly staff and very accommodating. Would stay here again based on service and friendless of staff.

Right on the beach very close to the pier! Loved the decor and beach you vibe at this hotel

Great view, room was nice. Shower layout was not awesome but that’s not a big deal. We will come back!!!

Had a heart stay. Rooms were very nice and had a great view.

Overall, great experience! The location of this hotel is perfect, the staff is friendly, the rooms are adorable with the beach/retro theme! Can’t wait to come back again!

Excellent situation, beautiful rooms and good staff. But you may hear noise from the other rooms particularly on the weekend...

This was our first time to Santa Cruz and thankfully we picked the right hotel. We didn’t know anything about the area or the Dream Inn and just took a chance and hoped for the best. We the best time!!! Great hotel, staff, location- everything.

It was wonderful and the bed was very comfortable! Beautiful views and the sound of the ocean is the best!
