CB! Approved Hotels and Resorts

The Dream Inn’s beachfront location is ideal for families – kids are just steps from the sand and the landmark Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk with numerous games and rides. The casual and funky decor is fun yet comfortable, and definitely kid-friendly. All rooms feature ocean views and pricing is value-oriented. The pool and lounge area hanging over the beach is a favorite amenity. It’s also noteworthy that the property, part of the progressive Joie de Vivre brand, supports the community with consistent donations to local organizations in need.
