Sits atop the cliffs adjacent to trail around cliffs. Beautiful sunrises and easy walk to wharf and restaurants. Lots of places to sit out and watch the water, surfers, and beachcombers. Room is small with little privacy but the views make up for that.

We LOVE the Sea & Sand! Clean, great location, would recommend to anyone! Staff is super friendly and helpful, breakfast is more than adequate, evening wine & cheese. We’ve stayed 3 times and each time we like it more than the last!!

We have been going here for years, 15 to be exact. It’s our go to place when visiting Santa Cruz. Love the Inn feeling VS a big hotel. The staff is always accommodating and we enjoy every time we have stayed.

Nothing better than falling asleep and waking up with the sound of crashing waves and barking sea lions, instead of cars honking or driving by. Walking distance to the amusement park and the wharf. Watch the surfers from the patio. Hope to be back!

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.
