I stayed at the Seaway Inn last week for two nights and it was wonderful! Big room, comfy bed, great shower and nice breakfast. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It is right across the street from the beach, close to the boardwalk and even closer to the wharf. Very pet-friendly too! I am coming back in August.

Room Tip: If you want the view, take the second floor.

My husband and I just returned from a trip down the California Coast. We stayed in Santa Cruz at the Seaway Inn and truly enjoyed it. We arrived into town a bit early and upon calling the hotel, the manager, Stephanie said our room was ready and we could come over to check in. She was so sweet and out room was wonderful (see photos). Very spacious king sized room with an ocean view (which I paid only $6 more for). Our room was #227 and had a nice view of the ocean and boardwalk from our shared balcony (which included nice chairs to sit outside and enjoy). Also had
great cable and wifi. Breakfast was continental and included waffles, cereals, yogurt, etc. All around, we felt it was a very nice value and a great location. I have included photos of our spacious room and the view from our room.

Room Tip: We paid only #6 more for an ocean view. Worth it. We had room 227

Hotel is just a block away from beach and Boardwalk. We were on a bottom floor and I think the top floor is ocean view. We had a great view of palm trees and some beach. The room was cute and the bed/pillows/ comforter was cozy!!!!!! The bathroom was updated with a large dual head shower! Breakfast had boiled eggs, waffles, various cereal, various breads, and bagels w/ cream cheese. Fruit, juices, milk, coffee, and tea. Plus yogurt!
Price- we received the walk in rate of $160- which is anywhere from $70-$150 cheaper than other hotels in area. Hotel personnel was very friendly. Stay here!

My four teenage grandkids and I stayed at Seaway Inn for two nights during a week long Spring break vacation. We all agreed this hotel was the best of the 7 we stayed in during our trip. The suites were well laid out. The beds and large shower were luxurious! Breakfast was excellent. The staff was always very helpful. The hotel is located on West Cliff Drive which made renting bikes (bike rental very close) to ride past the surfers, lighthouse and onto Natural Bridges State Park very easy to do. The Santa Cruz Amusement Park is within sight of the hotel. Loved the free parking as we just walked everywhere. We couldn't have asked for more.

Room Tip: I believe all the rooms had good views.

This hotel suited my needs for a one night stay. The location was in close walking distance to the wharf/beach and also downtown. The room was clean (although there was a bit of a funky odor) and provided all the basics. I could hear the people upstairs but not enough to be a disturbance. Overall I'd say it was good value for the price
