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.

Booked this property at the last minute based on reviews and the want to get out of town for the holiday weekend. I booked a Q/Q room and was thrilled with our 2-room Queen Suite on the third floor. The property is perhaps a little dated, but they have done a really good job with fresh paint, linens, and beds.... More

I loved how clean the room was. Bed was fresh, towels were replaced when needed. BUT! Wifi didn't even work at all, walls are THIN, & one of the front desk guys barged into our room when we said wait!

I chose this hotel since it's near the board walk, less than 5 min car ride but if you will walk and have kids and elderly people with you then choose another hotel. The hotel is located on a higher ground level so one has to exert much effort going up. Wi-Fi is only good on the reception area, we... More

This hotel was close enough to the beach to walk with 4 kids. It was not the nicest but I think that was because of the age of the hotel. We had a 2 bedroom suite and although I didn't like the layout, it worked out fine. Would stay again if I had to. Great breakfast options and staff was... More

I used to put my folks up in a B&B near my downtown home, then we discovered Ocean Pacific Lodge. Since they're in wheelchairs it's great to be in a fully accessible facility. The pool was a big attraction for my little girl who loved to swim with grandma. Ocean Pacific is equal distance to my house, Pacific Avenue with... More
