The ocean-front Sea & Sand Inn has always been popular with savvy out-of-towners, but a major renovation in 2009 has added a whole new “wow” factor. Three new luxury king spa rooms with ocean view balconies were added; two spacious family cottages with private hot tubs and three other spa rooms were also upgraded. All 22 rooms have a fantastic ocean front view of sparkling Monterey Bay.

Very friendly and welcoming staff. Room is super clean, has TV and fireplace/heater that works great. We loved cookies and tea/coffee served at 3pm. Location is amazing. The sound of the ocean 24/7 is very relaxing.

About as great of an experience that you can get!! The location was phenomenal, with the wharf and the boardwalk within walking distance. Stayed in the suite with the private patio overlooking the ocean and our guests loved it! Will be back next year!!

We came here for valentine’s day and had a very wonderful time. Room was a luxury king spa and had enough room for both of us and all the things we could want! Super close to the beach and restaurants. Wine and cheese hour was spectacular and we even got to mingle with other

What a great find. Close to the wharf and great seafood restaurants. Great ocean view. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. We were there in the winter, can't imagine what summer will be like. We will be back.

The Sea and Sand Inn provided impeccable accommodations and the backdrop for a remarkable romantic weekend getaway in February. All of the staff were superb and far exceeded expectations. The 2nd floor room was extremely cozy and provided incredible coastal views and restorative

The bathroom window which faces the street locks at various up/down positions. The hotel has heavy locking doors to gain access to the property. You must use your key to gain access. We sleep with our window open when it is warm. We have been coming to this hotel for 5 years and have never had any trouble.

The bed was comfy. Didn't think about air conditioning because of the season. Would probably take one of the upper story rooms with a private balcony when I go again.

You'll have ask the hotel people your more specific questions. I can say that our room certainly provided ample space for the two of us,. It was clean and pleasingly appointed. The bed was very comfortable. And we both loved the fireplace. It goes without saying that the ocean view was spectacular.

There are not assigned parking spots. However, there are enough parking places, but I think there only as many parking spots as there are rooms. So if you get a visitor they will have to find on street parking near the hotel. We stayed there 4 nights and never had a problem finding a parking spot at the hotel.

is pet friendly?
I'm afraid the Sea & Sand does not allow pets. You might want to contact Visit Santa Cruz County for suggestions on pet-friendly hotels in the area.

"pay a little more for the rooms with private deck & jacuzzi baths."
"Room 207 was fantastic, but no elevator"
