The Dream Inn is a dream!
Covid bride rescheduled from Dec 2020 to May 2021, The Dream Inn never wavered in support. The whole team was so accommodating, answering continuous questions and working with us to make our wedding happen in any way that it could, safely. The day of went without a hitch and it is the MOST BEAUTIFUL setting to get married. Highly recommend the Dream Inn for both the beauty as well as the service - especially Dan and Danielle. Thank you all!Sent on 06/03/2021

We had a dream wedding at the Dream Inn
I can't rave enough about this venue. During my rehearsal, everyone in my wedding party "oohed and aahed" as they got to see the view for the first time. We chose the Dream Inn because Santa Cruz means a lot to us and we love how close it is to everything, especially the beaches and th Boardwalk . I loved working with Katie, who was super responsive to all the little questions that I had. I was very anxious about the planning, but she put me right at ease. Our ceremony and reception turned out beautiful. We had so much fun and our guests had positive feedback about the food. We stayed at The Dream Inn for the whole weekend and everyone was super helpful and made us feel especial. We did a lot of the decor ourselves so we needed lots of help bringing items back and forth. Thank you, Dream Inn!Sent on 04/17/2019
