"A great place to stay!"
We stay here 1 to 2 days a month and live about an hour away. We haven't had a bad experience yet. Everyone here is extremely polite and helpful whether you are on the phone or in person. The hotel is near lots of places to eat, close to downtown, the beach and the boardwalk. The rooms are up to date, attractive and extremely clean.

"Stone throw from the beach, fraction of the cost."
Our expectations were exceeded! We booked online, the night before our weekend trip to Santa Cruz. Great staff, room freshly painted. Literal Beach view from the walkway outside our room and from our window (rm 211) !

"Thin walls"
Comfortable beds. We stayed in room 115 has 2 queens. The walls were dirty but everything else was clean. Nice decor. The only real complaint I have is how thin the walls are, we could hear our neighbors talking, etc.

"Very cute"
Not what I expected. The room is kind of old-fashioned but the set-up is pretty smart, you feel like you're in a little home. Super cozy but bring your own towels/toiletries, doors don't close all the way & you can hear your neighbors pretty well.

Dream Inn Santa Cruz

175 W Cliff Dr, Santa Cruz - Map
"Check for completion date on hotel remodel"
The only complaint I have is not being informed construction would be starting half way into a seven day stay. I overheard one of the staff at the front desk (while waiting for my automobile) tell someone on the telephone the pool, jacuzzi and access to the beach would close on Sunday due to demolition. The noise from the jackhammers spoiled trying to enjoy my ocean view. I stayed on the 7th floor and the noise was unbelievably loud. I tried to get away from the noise but the only way to the beach was out the front door and down the street towards the pier. Unfortunately the beach area had heavy equipment on it. Had I been informed I would have stayed elsewhere and waited until the construction was completed. Housekeeping was wonderful. The entire staff was very nice. I don't understand why I was not informed prior to booking my trip. I am sure the Dream Inn will be very nice after their remodel is completed but I think it is very inconsiderate to not inform guests they were starting a major project that will be ongoing for approximately six months. Was Expedia informed? I booked and paid for this holiday two months in advance.

    Santa Cruz is calling — find the perfect hotel

    Everyone wants to score a deal on travel, but price is just one factor to consider when booking an unforgettable hotel. Whether you’re visiting family, attending a conference or taking a well-earned vacation in Santa Cruz, having an awesome experience should be a no-brainer.

    Hotwire will hook you up! From restful nights near your flight to that prime spot in the city’s heart, we’ve done our research to bring the best options to your fingertips. Book your Santa Cruz hotel with us now and start your next adventure.

    You’re not the average traveler — and we know it

    You’ve done your homework and know exactly where you want to go. We’re here to help with some Hotwire travel geek-approved tips on how to save on your booking.

    Get away for the weekend

    Hotels in bigger cities usually charge higher rates during the week, when people are traveling for business. Weekends can be a bargain! It’s the other way around for vacation spots, so if you’re looking for a beach escape, consider a mid-week trip.

    Give yourself some wiggle room

    If your plans are flexible, play around with some different travel dates – a shift of a few days either way can help you save big. Prices usually jump the weekends before and after popular holidays, so we recommend steering clear of them. Or consider visiting during the off-season, when prices are generally lower.

    Plan around big events

    Are prices surprisingly high? There might be a huge conference or festival in town. Consider shifting your dates if you can. Of course, if that’s why you’re going, you’ll have to bite the bullet. We’ll still work to get you the best rates out there.

    Noodle over new adventures

    Set aside time to plan what you want to see, taste and discover. Nothing completes a trip, big or small, like a few new experiences! Check city apps or area websites to find out what’s new and what events are happening during your stay. Even during a family reunion, you can detour to that locals-only fish taco stand or under-the-radar music club. Your cousins will be impressed.
