We were given a night at the Casablanca Inn on the Beach as a gift for my birthday and when we checked in and went up to the room we were shocked by what we saw! The curtains were hanging off the rods, something on the carpet......not sure what it was, was sticky when you would step on it. I...

The only "selling point" of this hotel is it's location. It is right on the beach... well the main road is between the hotel and the beach, but in both rooms we "tried" you could hear the waves and see the beach. Other than that the hotel is very run down. I don't mind older hotels, in fact I think...

Stayed here for one night and it was lovely. Rooms are basic but well-maintained, the balconies at the front are nice, and the proximity to the beach is great. It's nicely away from the Boardwalk as well so not noisy at night. Would stay again.

Beautiful charming inn. You can't beat the location, a short walk to the beach (across the street), Boardwalk, and Pier. The room was clean and comfortable and the view was spectacular. Staff was friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again, we are looking forward to it.

Dirty, old, rundown, creaky, noisy, horrible, etc. This is where you go to have a horrible night.... you would never stay for another. The entire building shakes every time someone opens or closes a door. The bed had old worn out sheets and was very very uncomfortable. Room wasn't worth 10% of what I paid. I wish I hadn't fallen...

Brief return to CasaBlanca after several years away. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was very small and the "Queen" bed was actually a double but very comfortable. Price especially during the week was a lot higher than our last visit, but of course you're paying for the view which was wonderful! The sound of the waves and...

We stayed in the family suite and the room was amazing! Two bedrooms, two showers, full kitchen, and living room. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. I missed the view we had with the smaller room, but the space we had was worth it.

The good definitely outweighed the negatives here. As with everything, there are faults. Little things were missing from the room that we're used to in most hotels, such as bed side lamps and an in room phone - but this honestly didn't bother us too much. The hotel made up for this in so many more other ways. For starters,...

Booked a family suite for 1 night. 660 USD!! It is on the parking lot (The reservation email was talking about beautiful ocean views). We could not get in because chairs and other stuff was in the way of the frontdoor. It is very dirty. There are strange spots in the sheets! All furniture is old. They ask 660 for...

We're frequent visitors to Santa Cruz, and location-wise you can't get better. We stayed in a double-queen room at the front. Huge veranda, great people watching, beach is right there. You are literally steps to the beach and boardwalk. BUT.... the hotel is quite rough around the edges and shabby. It could be better with some basic attention. Basic elbow-grease-powered...

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
