      Historical Traveler Reviews Sea and Sand Inn Santa Cruz

      Weekend in santa cruz

      from

      Took a trip to santa cruz and found this amazing little hotel on the ocean. It is a place a will never forget, just 45 minutes to monterey and within walking distance to anything in SC. Absolutely Amazing!!!

      My favorite place to stay in Santa Cruz

      from

      My favorite place to stay in Santa Cruz. A little pricey but the location, the view from the gardens and the friendly feeling is quite nice. Yes, try to splurge and get one of the rooms with the private deck and hot tub.

      Ok, but not great

      from

      When we drove up to the Sea and Sand Inn I was a little concerned because it looked small and old. It turned out to be a decent place, but mainly because of the great view of the ocean from the balcony. The room was very small and the bathroom smelled terribly of disinfectant (maybe that's not a bad thing?), but it served our needs ok as we didn't spend alot of time in the room. The road noise coming in from the bathroom was loud at night so that window had to be kept shut, but the sounds of the ocean and sea lions in the morning was nice. Would try someplace else next time - it was expensive and not quite worth it.

      Foggy

      from

      We had a nice stay here, but make sure you get one of the newer rooms.

      These have much nicer bathrooms etc.etc.. We were initially placed in a standard room, and then complained because we didn't feel the price charged reflected what we got. The second (new) room we were offered was very nice though. Location is A1, no noise from the road, just the waves breaking on the beach below. Breakfast is good.

      Best deck and hot tubs in Santa Cruz

      from

      If you like privacy and comfort, the executive suites at this hotel are the best. Private hot tubs outside on the private deck overlooking the Bay and the Santa Cruz Municipal Wharf are the best in town. The breakfast in the morning is charming.

      Great location in Santa Cruz

      from

      This little hotel has a great location. I was worried at first that there would be alot of road noise but the surf rolling in at night blocks that. The room I'd have to say was average (a tad musty) but the view and location were perfect. Walking distance to restaurants and boardwalk, friendly staff and wonderful home- made scones for breakfast.

      Great Service

      from

      Wife and I and two teenagers stayed here from July 6-10, 2003, and had a great time. Leave the windows open at night and hear the surf from the ocean and sea lions in the early AM. The place is clean and the staff is friendly. Views from all rooms are great but who cares about the views. You can go outside and have coffee in a huge patio area that overlooks the beaches. Located close to plenty of dining options, beaches, boardwalk and BARS. You have to keep your priorities straight!

      We'll be going back next year.

      Honeymoon Romantic

      from

      If you have the money, splurge on an upgrade to an executive suite ect. We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend it was fantastic. They have private gardens overlooking the beach and the pier, boardwalk, Cowells, and west cliff drive are within walking distance. I used to live in Santa Cruz and I think it is probably the best boutique hotel around. I just got married down the street and the management graciously let us use the private gardens for our bridal party pictures prior to the wedding. They are spectacular. This is a great place for an intimate affair or anniversary. If you have kids, stay next door at the West Coast hotel where there is a pool and spa and alot of other kids. Regular rooms are a bit small.

      Wonderful Place to Stay!

      from

      We had a great vacation in Santa Cruz. The Sea and Sand Inn provided us the perfect place to stay while enjoying the California Central Coast.The staff is A1. The rooms are clean and beautifully furnished. The setting is spectacular. The Inn is located on a cliff overlooking the Santa Cruz boardwalk and pier, with beautiful views of the Monterey Bay. We loved having coffee on our private patio (with spa) while watching surfers and beachgoers below.Truly a dream vacation! We hope to return in the near future!

      Our vacation

      from

      Our three day stay was a very enjoyable stay.The folks working at the Inn made sure our stay was nothing short of a care free fun stay. The view from the grounds was breath taking and helped make our trip a memory of fun fun and want,(wanting to stay longer and can't wait to return). I wish to thank the Sea and Sand Inn for such a great stay.

      Thanks

      ... It was busy being Memorial bank holiday weekend, everybody was out, Santa Cruz is the place to be! Santa Cruz is England version of Bournemouth / Blackpool. We lay on the beautiful golden sandy beach watching the fierce waves hit the shore. Black flags were out so swimming was not an option, some paddlers were brave enough to still give it a go though! Some waves reached 6 feet, as tall as Nathan, the paddlers could not remain standing despite ...

They invited me up to stay at their house in the mountains and being that I was excited to be back in my camper, I spent the night in my camper in their driveway against the green of the forest and the creek trickled in the background as my sleep soundtrack. I woke up early to get to the the shop but soon to realize that one of the places that was recommended for me ...

      Picked the guys up, and I went to lunch with them. Winner buys! And, Arlene just happened to be back in town for Wayne to buy us all lunch at Taste Bistro and Café which is about 1-2 miles from the house. This restaurant was recommended by my local cousins as well as Jay, the guy we met at our nephew's seven year old birthday party in Michigan. He’s the one that recommended Turtle ...
