Very clean and the wifi was great. Two block walk from the ocean and the boardwalk. Staff in the lobby was very helpful and knowledgeable. Breakfast was so so. The room was spacious and comfortable. We would stay here again.

Clean and efficient. Typical motel. Nothing fancy but serves the purpose. Close to the pier and the boardwalk. Breakfast as usual. Your American staple of waffles, cereals, toast and coffee, served in a windowless mess hall ...

We recently spend one night at this place . First awful thing happening was when we met the Guy behind the front desk. The usual talk you do when you check in somewhere and the it happened "I could not understand one of his questions,because of his pool english skills, i asked him to repeat. After that he began to...

Stayed here in the first week of August because they were pet friendly for a one night trip to Santa Cruz. We arrived late at night, and a friendly staff helped us check in. The room we received was average and most of our room's appliances/features were not in the best conditions. They do offer free wifi which has an... More

We have stayed at this hotel on more than one occasion with our most recent being 7/23-24.When booking I had some questions and each was answered promptly(Thanks Aurora!). I ended up booking a double queen that was to be on the first or second floor. When we arrived we had been upgraded to a double king on the third floor.... More

We had a good stay here. Our room was clean and comfortable. We found our room to be quiet enough. Pool was nice. Breakfast was OK. I found all hotels in Santa Cruz to be overpriced as was this place but for the area it was priced accordingly. Easy walk to the wharf, restaurants, and Boardwalk. One problem: louvers were... More

Room was beat to hell and filthy. Ear plugs were provided on the night stand, which was a red flag. The room was very noisy. My wife and I didn't even stay the night, we found another hotel and left. If over priced dirty rooms is your thing, you'll love the Ocean Pacific Lodge.

We stayed at Ocean Pacific Lodge for one night. The staff at the front desk was great, they upgraded us to a suite and offered to extend our check out by an hour because we got in late. They also gave our little dog a greenie to munch on. Our room was very large, the bed comfortable. The bathroom had... More

Bad service at the frontdesk. They give you earpluggs before your first night, to avoid the noise from the nearby drive around and the many people walking by. Especially the to young homeboys with their gangster attitude should not stand at a front desk. Difficult to park your car on their parking lot.
