    This is a great place to stay. Love the location. The staff is on task. Our favorite rooms are the King/spa. The view is fantastic and you hear the sound of the ocean from any room. Highly recommend staying.

    Sweet little place right on the beach. Nice to hear the waves at night if you open your window. Nice touches throughout the stay. Kinda busy street so noisy during high traffic times. Beautiful view and overall an excellent place to stay.

    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.
