About Beach Street Inn & Suites

home tab spotlight

Beach Street Inn and Suites has been perched atop Beach Hill on the Westside of Santa Cruz since the 1940’s. Originally named “Terrace Court”, renovations started in 2011 and continued rejuvenation offers an unmatched experience. These renovations have transformed this once singular ocean front motel property into the premier Boutique Inn that has been rated one of the best hotels in Santa Cruz by Trip Advisor and has been featured in Sunset Magazine. Perched atop Beach Hill, 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, heated pool, hot tub and firepit. Other than the views, our most popular amenity is our complimentary coffee, espresso, and cocoa bar 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 dining 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 renovated rooms and suites offer guests a full range of amenities, including suites with the capacity to sleep up to 6 persons, full kitchens, flat screen TV’s with Chromecast streaming services, and free Wi-Fi.
