Walking distance to Boardwalk, downtown and Pier

Bathroom small and the recent remodel had over spray everywhere making it look "not" clean.

Loved being on the water. Loved that it was a JDV which I am normally extremely happy with.

90% of the staff was extremely unprofessional. Was nothing like a JDV experience. Walls were extremely thin. I had no problem being woken up by children at 6 am on a Saturday morning however neighbors complained when I had 2 girlfriends over after 10pm on a Friday night. Overall a terrible experiance. Thank god for Hotel Paradox. I will definitely be making reservations there next visit. A view of the ocean should not discount my service. The Dream Inn became much more like a nightmare. Not to mention no phone calls were returned when I explained my situation. Only phone call I got was to inform me they lost the card number on file for room charges and incidentals and required me to give them another card number. Next time I will save the drive and walk across the street to stay at The Hotel of Los Gatos.

Location Location Location. Plus you got a fridge and a microwave oven.

There was a garbage can in the room that still had garbage in it from the previous guests. Tacky at best.

The rooms are small but well equipped. Kind of shabby inside the rooms. A remodel might be nice. The bathroom was too dark.

One of the few available on short notice for a holiday weekend

Very cramped rooms, noise from adjacent rooms and the parking lot was distracting. Room seemed musty and we could not get the room cool without opening the window, which we did not want to do for security reasons.

This hotel is situated on a cliff overlooking the ocean. This is a perfect spot for enjoying the ocean view, watching surfers, and relaxing. The outside area is secure and clean. We met several nice couples and enjoyed the wine and cheese social hour

no

The hotel staff is excellent. They responded to our questions and informed us about the hotel amenities; such as free breakfast, afternoon snacks, and the wine and cheese social hour. The common areas and room was very clean. We had a beautiful room with a fireplace and a patio sitting area. The ocean sounds made for a peaceful night sleep.

Quaint hotel with a decor that speaks of home and not a motel. Beautiful view of Monterey Bay, Santa Cruz boardwalk and wharf and Cowells Beach. Nice to wake up to the sound of the ocean. Good security as you have to have a key to enter the area where the rooms are located. Nice breakfast with fresh cut fruit, muffins, yogurt etc. Wine and cheese in afternoon.

As soon as we checked in, the cleaning lady thinks it's on to barge into our room while I was changing and doesn't even leave to close the door! Had to yell at her to close it. Very unprofessional.

The owners were helpful and pleasant. My wife left her purse in the room and they called her cellphone within 10 minutes. About 200 yards from the Boardwalk. If you have small kids, consider a one night trip. If you are 60 as are my wife and I then I would say keep going to Monterey.

This was a great room, close to the boardwalk. It's a neat vintage motel, with rooms that have been completely updated. What really made this motel special are the owners. They really went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable and easy. Would definitely recommend to anyone staying in Santa Cruz.

The Chaminade setting is fabulous. It is nestled in the mountains that overlook forest and the beautiful Monterey Bay. There are patios with tables that overlook these views. The breakfast buffet was a good value ($15-18) for the selections offered, especially considering the dining area overlooked both forest and ocean.

There was an additional $25 per night resort fee required at check in, in addition to the price I paid through Kayak. I thought the resort fee was included in the listed Kayak price. Also, the rooms are basic, with no safe, microwave, or mini fridge.

Very nice rooms and extremely friendly and helpful staff. Everything in the room seemed very clean and loved the creative decorating. Made it an enjoyable stay.

A surprising amount of kids.. My boyfriend and I expected a few of course but there were quite a bit! We could hear them running around at night and in the morning which got quite old

Prices are average price per night of stay and may not include taxes and fees. "Total" includes our estimate of the taxes and fees. Please verify the total cost on the provider's site before you complete your reservation. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
