Santa Cruz Dream Inn

Upscale digs on the sand

More than 50 years ago, the Dream Inn reigned as the queen of Cowell’s Beach, just steps from the Boardwalk. The aging structure was completely remodeled in 2008, and the retro-chic Santa Cruz Dream Inn rose from the sands.

The main draw of this luxe, full-service lodge is the primo beach location. Walk to the Boardwalk, West Cliff Drive walking trails, and downtown shops and restaurants. The 165 rooms and suites offer a slew of amenities, and all have patios or balconies with Monterey Bay views.

The onsite Aquarius restaurant is a fantastic place for views, especially at sunset, and the adjacent Jack O’Neill Lounge is a fun place for a cocktail.
