    Title of this review says it all. Run - don't walk - here. Miss it already. Can't think of one thing I'd change about this inn. Cozy. Relaxing. Blood pressure reducing. Cozy rooms. Sounds of ocean fill your room. Awwww - that's the life!

    We stay here 1 to 2 times a year and love the location and views. We checked in and only used our car once in 4 days. Walking distance to everything we enjoy, even downtown Santa Cruz. Very relaxing vacation.

    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.
