    Excellent location and beautiful views. Nicely kept property. Walk to pier and restaurants. Nice deck with lounging chairs overlooking the ocean. An outdoor hot tub would be a nice addition. Fresh coffee always available. .

    I spent an evening here with my spouse. The ocean can been seen/heard from every room. Inside we found a lovely fireplace and very clean room. Location is walking distance from the pier and boardwalk.

    This is a great place to stay. Love the location. The staff is on task. Our favorite rooms are the King/spa. The view is fantastic and you hear the sound of the ocean from any room. Highly recommend staying.

    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.
