With an inspired vision in place, the Beach Street Inn and Suites was purchased four years ago by two local families who immediately started renovating the old Santa Cruz Motel. The new renovations have transformed this singular ocean front hotel property into the premier Boutique Inn and has been rated the best hotel in Santa Cruz by Trip Advisor and has been featured in 2012, 2013 and 2015 Sunset Magazine. Perched atop one of the most spectacular scenic vantage points on the Santa Cruz Coastline, Beach Street Inn and Suites offers guests breathtaking views of the Monterey Bay. We are a full service resort with retail shopping, gourmet café, and heated pool, all on site. This past winter we added a complimentary coffee, espresso and cocoa bar in our guest lounge for your enjoyment.
We are delighted to feature The Picnic Basket café at the base of our hotel. The Picnic Basket dramatically expands on the local and seasonal sourcing philosophy of The Penny Ice Creamery, a local landmark. The Basket offers breakfast, lunch, light dinner, full coffee service, local beer and wine, as well as ice cream. The Picnic Basket is the exclusive provider of in-room service for the hotel.
™, Beach Street Inn and Suites is within walking distance of the Boardwalk, the Municipal Wharf, and our eclectic Downtown, where visitors can enjoy a wide variety of restaurants, shops, art galleries, museums, cinemas and pubs. Our newly renovated rooms and suites offer guests a full range of amenities, including sleeping up to 6 persons, full kitchen, iPod docking stations, DVD players, flat screen TV’s, free HBO, local and long distance calls and free Wi-Fi.
