Lonely Planet review

With a grassy lawn at the cliff’s edge, this spiffy, if seriously overpriced motel overlooks Main Beach and the wharf. Fall asleep to braying sea lions! Rooms are smallish, but ocean views can be stellar. Rates include complimentary afternoon refreshments. Their contempo sister property, Carousel Beach Inn , is cheaper and closer to the beach boardwalk.

Our independent authors have visited Sea & Sand Inn and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Santa Cruz.
