God value for your money,but bad service at the reception,especially from the young male employe at the front desk. Poor english skills and as a result of that you will get the evil eyes ,if you do not understand him ,trying for the first time. First and last stay,try to find another place,because the motel is located right at a... More

I would recommend the hotel given it location and qualities. I stayed at the hotel 5 days for the TriYoga retreat in the beginning of January. Location is very convenient - just 5 min walk to the beach and 10 min to downtown. Room is of a good size with the newly renovated bathroom. The room was clean and cozy... More

This is a cute little hotel close enough to walk to Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Not at all costly during the off-season, which is nice this time of year. The front office staff accommodated our request for a room change with a pool view. Rooms are nicely appointed with microwave, refrigerator, and Keurig machine. The complimentary help-yourself continental breakfast was... More

Considering the Big Pineapple Express Storm of 12/14 was about to hit imminently and I did not want to find myself without a room in the event of an evacuation at my place, I was delighted to find Ocean Pacific's extremely courteous staff helping me out!! They swiftly went about securing me a pet friendly room that also featured handicapped... More

For a place that is close to everything in Santa Cruz I was a bit skeptical. The front desk was very helpful. The room was updated and nicely decorated...more importantly..clean! Bathroom was clean as well. I would recommend staying here. The breakfast is something to be desired, but it's continental so that's expected.

Clean room and good location. Just a couple of minuters walk downtown and to the wharf and boardwalk. The complementary breakfast was actually better than expected and included yoghurt, various kinds of Corn flakes/granola, fruit, juice, bread and you could make your own waffles. The wi-fi did not work in our room so if you need wi-fi maybe not the... More

I found the place clean and modern. The renovations were done hastily but sufficient for our one night stay. My usual Santa Cruz crib is the Comfort Inn on Plymouth because we travel with an infant and need the fridge for milk. This place makes the Comfort Inn look like a homeless shelter. The other hotel guests were noisy in... More

We visited beautiful Santa Cruz and selected Ocean Pacific Lodge. As it was high season, it was a bit more expensive, but we were satisfied. The bed was clean and comfy. Fridge, microwave, coffee maker in the room! The room felt safe, despite the kind of shady guy in parking lot, smoking something sitting in his car... They have a... More

We stayed here for over a week and if we hadn't prepaid we would have moved to another hotel. Although the hotel has big rooms and they are very clean, its way to noisy for a long stay. The hotel walls and ceilings are paper thin. The adjoining rooms to ours had children and dogs in them and it sounded... More

Large room, clean, helpful staff and just 3 blocks from the Santa Cruz pier with all the nice seafood restaurants! We had a room adjacent to the street so heard many cars go by throughout the evening. But for a $100 price which includes a nice selection of breakfast options (yogurt, cereal, fresh waffles, bananas, coffee, cocoa), its a pretty... More
