    Dream Inn Santa Cruz

    2.01 miles away

    Santa Cruz, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2485 reviewsTripAdvisor (2485)
    Free WiFi

    Sitting beachfront adjacent to the Santa Cruz boardwalk, the Dream Inn welcomes visitors with warm colors and funky furnishings. Walking in, you may think you've traveled back to the 1960s: Bright, bold decor can be found throughout the hotel, but there are modern amenities, too. Guest rooms boast high-tech items such as iPod docks, flat-screen TVs and rain showers, not to mention private balconies – previous visitors highly recommend asking for an ocean view room on a higher floor for better views and less late-night noise. Travelers also enjoy spending time by the heated beachfront pool. If seeing and hearing the ocean isn't enough, taste it at Aquarius, which serves up fresh seafood in a very relaxed, casual environment. Despite all its offerings, this property earns the most praise for its excellent customer service; previous guests describe the staff as extremely friendly and helpful.
