Want the luxury of a bed and breakfast and the comforts of home. Casablanca Inn is for you. What a wonderful way to start or end my day listening to the waves crash along the beach. My own private balcony to share a romantic dinner cooked in our private kitchen. Or watching the day start on the same balcony enjoying... More

What a huge disappointment ! The hotel is down right dirty! The rooms were dirty when we got here and had to ask for them to be cleaned! This hotel was 400.00 a night! The blow dryer is so old is was shooting out flames. The coffee maker didn't work either! What a waste of money! Do NOT STAY HERE!!!😡😡😡😡😡😡

If all you want in Santa Cruz is location, stay here. Across the street from the beach and a short walk to the pier and boardwalk. Hotel is old. A standard queen room--very small and bathroom was small. No desk and chair. Small refrigerator and microwave. Coffee pot in room and continental breakfast in lobby. We were out of the... More

Hotel location fantastic, just to the side of the pier at the far end of the boardwalk, straight out on to the beach. The room we had was on the top floor with a shared balcony, with views out over the beach. The room was quite large, big enough to put an extra roll up bed in the corner and... More

The room assigned to us was not ready for guests, the carpet was soiled, the screens on the windows were torn. There was a dead fly on the floor. I was shown other options, but none of the rooms were appropriate, for similar reasons. The saving grace of this hotel was the staff who tried very hard to be helpful... More

Our room (#10) at the Casablanca Inn has a king bed, a small kitchenette and a small bathroom. The bed is very comfortable, the pillows of decent quality. The room feels spacious and has a small but private balcony with an ocean view. Unfortunately the quality of the bed isn't replicated in the rest of the room. The area rug... More

It was comfortable for my family and I. The couch folded into a bed and was comfortable, the bed in the room was comfortable. Everything was clean..only problem I encountered was when the kids wanted to take a bath the plug didn't work. Loved how it was right across from the beach and in between the boardwalk and wharf.

The hotel itself is very old, but well kept. its right on the beach, a one minute stroll to the boardwalk. There is a fantastic Thai restaurant downstairs and a bar below that. Both places were wonderful. Dog friendly was a big plus. Staff was friendly and knowledgable and we enjoyed our stay here very much.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The historical Casablanca Inn is strategically located across the street from the Santa Cruz beach, a block away from the wharf and the boardwalk. All our rooms are beautifully decorated and have a breathtaking view of the beach. Some of our rooms have a unique design which reflects the distinct character of the historic Cerf Mansion. Over the years, the Casablanca Inn has been fortunate enough to cater to some of the most influential and famous personalities of our time, which has immensely appreciated the elegance that our hotel has to offer. ... more   less
