  • Very nive place to visit...there is something for everybody
  • Wonderful view great place to go enjoy the view and there's three wonderful restaurants in the area Crow's Nest Johnny's Aldo's and you can jump on the Chardonnay or rent a kayak from kayak connection
  • Ridiculous parking rules and fees. Fines for whatever you do. Rude staff. These people are stuck in the last century. I never write reviews, but thanks for reminding me why I don't live in California.

Where to stay in Santa Cruz

Most of the accommodations in Santa Cruz occupy a place near the beach and boardwalk. Inns and bed and breakfasts make up most of the selection here, but you'll also find a few motels and hotels sprinkled in. You might consider staying in one of the inns or bed and breakfasts located inside some of the Victorian houses downtown, which lies just to the north. A number of budget motels line both San Lorenzo Boulevard, which is just across Carbonara Creek from the main tourist area by the beach, and Ocean Street a little farther north.
