Pacific Blue Inn provided one of the best B&B experiences anywhere. Homemade breakfast each day is perfection! Lovely, cozy room. Wonderful value. Garden is sweet. Innkeepers and staff are caring. Many, many thanks!

Very disappointing experience. The disappointment began when we arrived at around 7:30 p.m. and found the place unattended. (A note said check in time was from 3 to 5.) We called the number listed by the front door and tried for several minutes to get the lock box open without success. The manager finally agreed to come over and assist... More

We spent too long in San Francisco and arrived at the Inn at 10:30 at night. The property is not staffed in the evening. We were a bit creeped out by the dimly lit, deserted streets, populated only by odd individuals here and there. When arriving late, it is necessary to get your room keys from a lock box located...

We stayed here on way from San Fran to Carmel. The Inn's rooms are more modern than the outside might suggest. They are clean, with nice bedding and large bathroom. There is a pretty courtyard that blocks much of the noise from town. And the location is very good. We walked to the wharf/beach as well as downtown. They also... More

Very nice quiet bed and breakfast, close to both the wharf and downtown Santa Cruz. The staff is very friendly, and even assisted in finding us an alternate hotel for the time we were spending in Santa Cruz.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights before heading down to Santa Barbara and we enjoyed it so much we booked an additional night on our way back up from SB. Our room on the second floor was spacious but cozy and the bed was large and comfortable. Getting a hearty, homecooked breakfast each morning was great for... More

We booked the wheelchair accessible room in the hotel. The room was great and there was a shower with a bench that Ayou can transfer to from your wheelchair or stay in your wheelchair. The only 2 things that could help was a full length mirror at the right hight and the hair dryer was a bit high. The staff... More

Greeted by wonderfully friendly owners and slept in the most comfortable bed ever! The room is clean, the inn serves a wonderful breakfast and their little patio and courtyard area is peaceful and relaxing. Close to everything that you want to walk to. We enjoyed our stay very much and would certainly stay here in the future!

I took my 17 year old niece to Santa Cruz for a night. I was looking for a clean quiet place near the beaches and near the downtown. I found Pacific Blue Inn and it what we wanted. Alex, the manager, was friendly and welcomed us warmly. Parking was easy and convenient. The room was a little dark, but the... More
