Let me first start off with a little about me so that one can make his/her judgement with that: I do not travel constantly, but I do take 1-2 small vacations a year and have for about 20 years. That makes quite a few motels and hotels in which I have stayed. Most of those that I stay in are... More

Conveniently located near the beach, boardwalk and wharf, within walking distance. Rooms were clean, fridge, microwave and single serve keurig were handy. Several hours after checking in we realized the TV didn't work, turns out it was the direct TV box, so they moved us to an adjacent room, and offered to help us move our luggage. Weekday breakfast consisted... More

Nice little hotel within walking distance of everything you need. Quiet clean rooms with a nice staff. The Manager Peter was hospitable and really went out of his way to make our stay a nice one. Highly recommend...

Get a remodeled room!! Clean, great double headed shower, pretty quiet. I would definitely stay here again. Perfect for somebody that doesn't want to pay double to stay at The Dream Inn. Minus the ocean view, this hotel is identical in decor and gratification.

We stayed at the Ocean Pacific Lodge March 15-16. We brought our small dog. She got a lovely little gift basket with a dish bowel, adorable towels with paw prints and a treat! We loved that. That was about it. The beds were really hard and lumpy. Very uncomfortable to sleep on. The noise comes right in from the street... More

Well, they checked me in to my room. So we walk to our room and the house keeper is still cleaning it so we had to wait another 10 min. Then we finally got in. Noticed in the bathroom she left a dirty pair of underwater in the shower . (Pretty disgusting I'd say) the refrigerator was dirty. Wasn't cooling... More

Found this place randomly while traveling through Santa Cruz. The price was great compared to other hotel/motels in the area (it was a weeknight and I do believe the price increases on the weekend). The room was very clean, shower pressure great, bed comfortable, and the internet was fast. I also loved the Keurig in the room for morning coffee!

I was really pleased with this place at the time of my stay but I developed hot tub folliculitis after staying here, which means there was bacteria in the hot tub due to poor maintenance or an incorrect chlorine level of the water. Look it up. It's not fun- itchy red bumps all over my chest, legs, and arms. It's... More

We were driving down the coast and looking for an overnight stay. The reviews and photos on trip advisor helped us decide. Thr room was clean and appears to be recently updated. The double shower was an especially nice touch!
