    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

    We Hate Cities

    ... why I partially hate San Francisco and other big cites like it. The traffic was absolutely infuriating! We spent almost 2 hours trying to navigate the bumper to bumper traffic before we decided to get back on HWY 101 an out of the city ASAP! I love that city, really I do, but if I it means having to drive in it to visit again, then count me out! Once we finally got out of SF, Ible and I both agreed that we hate cities and wish to never live in ...

Most of us spent well under an hour in the visa office, though the online application asked for every little detail of employment, education, every place traveled and what was had for breakfast over the last 20 years. We'll be in St. Petersburg and Moscow on the longest days of the year: looking forward to those White Nights!

    A short bus journey down to Santa Cruz for a couple of nights. I can see why this beach town comes so highly recommended even in winter. I quickly discovered that Zoccolis on the Main Street serves the best sandwiches in the world ! I also think it's the biggest sandwich I've ever tackled too it did me for lunch and dinner. Exploring more of the town walking ...

    ... on this pier) but I was happy to find sea lions instead. Those things are, 1) huge, and 2) noisy. I don’t know how they get that big, because it seems like all they do is sleep and bark at each other, at me, at the rocks, at the moon….

    After that I hit Cannery Row and did the tourist thing. Apparently Google was doing a team-building thing in Monterey today: there were at least a dozen different teams of about ten ...
