Edgewater Beach Motel is in a perfect location and has wonderful sleeping options and I thought would be perfect for our family coming for a wedding. I had stayed here once before and it was fine. I tried finding out prices a year in advance but was told they did not take reservations until they heard from repeat customers. That...

Terrible except for the location. Location is good about 100m directly across from the pier and beach but that is where the good ends. The rooms - are spacious but dated, v dated. We booked a room with a sofa bed and the bedding was not laundered properly and left us with an uneasy feeling, so much so that members...

We spent two nights in a room that was not much bigger than the bed, which was sloppily made. There was no dresser or closet, only a desk topped with a microwave and a rod sticking out of the wall behind the door with a couple of hangers on it. The carpet and furniture were shabby and stained and there...

Perfect location. Cute little boutique motel overlooking the harbor in Santa Cruz. Rooms are clean and eclectic. Literally a one block walk to the wharf. Took surfing lessons well there and only had to walk out our door and go a block to get there. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Not a fancy place but very comfortable and...

Simply perfect! This quaint and beautiful Beach Inn is an amazing place to stay. The location is the best for Santa Cruz livelihood including the beach and boardwalk. Our room was clean, comfortable and fun to hang out in. We enjoyed the gorgeous beachy grounds, full of colorful flowers and ocean air. The operations manager, Jessy, was so outstanding and...

What a real treat to able to stay at the Edgewater Beach after 45 years of staying here with my parents in the 60's 70's and 80's and as an adult through the late 90's until I moved from Sonoma to Akron Ohio. What was really a treat was running into the owner Win's daughter Elaine and the front desk...

My fiance and I have stayed at the Edgewater three times, and it is always a lovely experience. The location is fabulous -- just a short walk down to the wharf and boardwalk. The rooms and grounds are impeccably clean, nicely decorated, and well appointed. Best of all, though, is the management and staff. This trip was an anniversary for...

For two years in a row now my kids and I have come here for Mother's Day weekend. There's nothing glitzy or glamorous about the place it's just a nice, clean place to stay with a friendly staff. I like that it's right across the street from the pier and Boardwalk. We come, we enjoy, we relax. There is a...

“larger rooms with kitchenettes, would have liked to have the extra room for the two of us. We stayed in a single with a king bed.”
  • This was a small single room with a King bed. Nice decor! Clean!
  • Kind of hard to take a shower in this tub. Fun to have the fireplace in the bathroom.
