Main Beach Hotel & Travel Guide

Main Beach is usually near the top of the to-do list for tourists to this area.

Santa Cruz is where you will find it.

Whether you like to organize your hotel well in advance or tend to leave it until the day before, it'll be a breeze to find something that's close by. There are as many as 26 accommodations that are within 0.6 miles (1.0 kilometer). Why not check out the Casablanca On The Beach, Dream Inn Santa Cruz and West Cliff Inn - A Four Sisters Inn?

You will discover a great variety of accommodation solutions nearby that offer a peaceful night's sleep at a price you can't argue with. Two highly recommended places are the Comfort Inn Beach/Boardwalk Area and the Howard Johnson Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, a mere 0.3 miles (0.5 kilometers) and 0.3 miles (0.5 kilometers) away, respectively.

Are you somebody that has refined tastes? If so, you'll find a couple of superior establishments conveniently located a quick drive away. To avoid being let down, it might be wise to confirm a room well in advance. Try the Inn at Depot Hill and Chaminade Resort & Spa.

With all the excitement of traveling, we can sometimes forget about lunch. Just a short hop away, Cafe Espresso is a good place to refuel for the afternoon. If you'd prefer an establishment with a larger menu, Barbary Coast can satisfy an empty stomach. Don't forget that you're on vacation. You're entitled to enjoy a few drinks before tucking in, and Coasters is just another quick stroll away.
