I've stayed at this hotel at least 4 times now, most recently just last week. It's been a great experience each time. Rooms are very nice, staff is friendly and helpful, there isn't a lot of noise and the location close to the pier can't be beat. As I have family living in the area, I've stayed at numerous hotels...

On entering, the room smelled strongly of chemical cleaners. I later found that the tub was covered in a slimy solution. I think the cleaners sprayed a think, clear cleaning solution on the tub, and forgot to wash it off. The door security lock didn't work. The hair dryer was broken ( yes, I could have called the front desk... More

I stayed at this hotel on a road trip from Seattle to LA checking in late at night. The hotel is much nicer than it appears in the photos so we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were super clean and the beds comfortable. The staff was friendly as well. The hotel is very close (walking distance) to the Santa Cruz... More

My husband and I flew in from Europe and after a 12 hour flight, were thrilled to land at Ocean Pacific Lodge. The room is clean, the location is super close to the boardwalk and they also have bike rentals for 20$ a day. We were able to get a great night's sleep and avoid jet lag thanks to the... More

We stayed midweek, in February. The price is unbeatable, and the location was perfect for us. Check-in was friendly and efficient. We were able to walk toward the beach for dinner, and to catch the sunset on the wharf. It's really nice to be able to have a cocktail or two and not to worry about driving. Our room was... More

We booked two rooms here on our way back from Monterey. It's a great location but if we had not been here off season (mid week in February) I can't imagine staying here as the walls are paper thin so we could hear EVERYTHING from the adjoining rooms. The breakfast is tired pastries, but the room was clean and the... More

Actually I would agree with the review below saying "Tidy little place with lovely staff”. It's clean, the rooms are spacious and comfy. What killed my experience however is not being able to sleep at night, because the walls of this place are ridiculously thin even for US standards. My neigbors were early birds and started chatting (in a normal... More

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.
