High price for what you get. Good location but that's it. Normal motel room. Nothing extra. Too many kids but of course spring break. Hot tub didn't work at 8:30 pm. They close at 9:00 pm. Too much chlorine. The water was gray. Breakfast terrible. No one from staff in breakfast room. No milk until I checked the fridge, which... More

Location was good for walking to the Boardwalk. Breakfast was adequate. As others have mentioned, noise travels, but not a deal breaker. The hotel could use a little more TLC by replacing rusty door hinges and faucet fixtures.

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

This place was clean, quite, and close to everything I needed. Once I parked in the free parking I walked to everyplace I wanted to go. Decent Breakfast in the morning. Price was good, over all a great experience. Thanks

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
