    Not worth the price

    The room was good size, nice design, beautiful view and nice pool

    Hair in the bathroom, very dated, hallway carpet smells, iron baby crib. Could have spent the money in a better place elsewhere, I was expecting something better for this price.

    Excellent location

    The customer service is superior, the location is ideal. The room looked nice just a couple minor areas things needed to be addressed. TV did not work and the cleaning crew needed to revisit our room. They addressed my concerns immediately!!

    Nice stay.

    The staff was really helpful and kind. The view is gorgeous and it's close to everything. The room was clean and upgraded.

    There was still some renovations going on an it was very confusing when trying to find our way around the facility.

    At $600/night, this might be the most over-priced

    I like the location and the service.

    This hotel at $600/night is wildly overpriced. It should be $250-300 at most. I didn't even get free parking (had to pay $25/day) even though I was completely ripped off. Unfortunately I had no other viable options.

    Amazing Location...BUT it ends there.

    Loved the location. The rooms were small but nice and clean. The restaurant is really nice with great views.

    The pools and hot-tub are filthy and 90% kids under 5. The hotel carpets common bathrooms and stuff are just Dirty. Staff RARELY pick up the phone when you need something. They automatically charge you a $25/night Parking fee whether you park there or not.

    You can't beat the location, but the price is steep.

    Lots of families and kids around the pool. I was staying with a friend and we could hear a lot of noise from the rooms on either side of us, which was difficult to sleep through. It wasn't late night noise. It was early morning families rising before 6am on Sunday morning.

    We have not been to Santa Cruz in years, and have never stayed at The Dream Inn. We will definitely be back. What a beautiful venue and location. Our room was lovely, and the front desk service polite, service oriented and professional.
