Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review

The Dream Inn is a fantastic retro-chic makeover of a Santa Cruz landmark—and their stylish oceanview banquet space is so ready for primetime. The versatile beachfront ballroom captures a panoramic vista of the sparkling Monterey Bay. (We recommend breakfasting on your private, view-filled balcony the next morning!)
