My family regularly stays at Edgewater. We also enjoy turning our friends on to this hotel. Many of our friends have enjoyed Santa Cruz for themselves using the Edgewater as a "home base." The well-equipped kitchenettes save a bundle on breakfasts. Being so close to the beach it is easy to come back to our room for lunch before heading out again. Like the other reviewer I also liked the video on this site. The staff makes you feel like you are a guest being welcomed into their home. This seems to be a family run property that takes pride in their hotel. It does not have the big chain feel. I like that it feels more personal.I'm a regular guest and will continue to be.
Location convient to the Boardwalk, but the area was run down. Floors could use cleaning and the walls had some dents and dirty spots. The beds were comfortable. The refrigerator was decent size. The pool was nice as were the spas. They have a towel policy that you need to bring a towel back before they give you a new one. There is a no smoking rule at this location and they request you go 20 feet off of the property to smoke. They close all the gates at night except for the main entrance. It makes you feel like you are in a compound. I would not reccomend staying in this hotel.
Santa Cruz's newest hotel, Rio Vista Suites. One of the oldest homes in santa cruz has been transformed into a one of a kind boutique hotel in the santa cruz beach hill area. this 4 star property is almost fully complete and it shows a very unique blend of old school vintage with new school modern elegance.
Great Location! Right across the street from the pier entrance. Very clean and friendly staff. Lovely coffee, hot chocolate and tea bar in the morning and popcorn in the afternoons. Loved our stay here and will stay again.
I really loved the location of this hotel! It is literally right across the street from the boardwalk in Santa Cruz, which makes it especially convenient! The rooms are also clean and spacious!
Beautiful location with private beach area. Nice pool as well with games, fire pits at night and great staff. Will stay again.
Family vacation here and it was near perfect. Sound proof quiet rooms. Free shuttle to boardwalk or harbor. Great staff.
Stayed here with our granddaughters. Love the view of the beach and boardwalk from the balcony. Great pool area too.
This is a hidden gem. Staff is friendly, rooms are clean and cozy. Very cute place surrounded by trees.
Great location for the boardwalk, it is close. It is quiet and friendly. Little smaller than I expected.
