The Pacific Blue Inn is a great little B&B / boutique hotel in Santa Cruz. It is conveniently located, has nice, well maintained rooms and the staff is excellent! The highlight is the breakfast and the homemade baked goods prepared by the manager. Delicious!! Would definitely stay here again.

The Pacific Blue Inn is a most charming hotel, well situated, friendly staff - everything you could ask and hope for to feel welcomed and happy while travelling. If I would ever go back to Santa Cruz this is where I would stay over and over again.

The Pacific Blue Inn has a lot of charm. The rooms are quite spacious and decorated with taste. The location is perfect. Easy access to either the ocean or downtown. We loved our short stay in Santa Cruz.

We stayed here for two nights , were going to stay for three but checked out as we didn't feel safe. The room was beautifully decorated, fantastic bed and bathroom but dark as it just overlooked the courtyard. Elise was lovely and welcomed us in and her home made cakes are delicious but... It is definitely at the wrong end... More

Where to begin - so you've read about the Pacific Blue Inn already. Another positive review... Went up to Santa Cruz to attend a concert (at the kuumbwa jazz club) and wanted to just walk to and from the experience. Took it as a sign that the PB Inn is 5 minutes away and after looking at pictures and reading... More

I found this location on TA and based on pictures, newly renovated notes, reviews by majority of travelers.... It was a GREAT FIND!! I cannot say enough about all that we were pleased with. Location might not look too great, but I will tell you we felt perfectly safe. Beds were so comfy, nice down comforter, hardwood floors and not... More

If you want a nice modern room that's located in the heart of Santa Cruz... it's hard to beat this place. The location is walking distance from the "shopping district"/college area. There's a lot to do as far as bars and food from the Inn and it's very convenient and a perk due to the fact that the wife and... More

This is a charming small and quiet Inn. It is also Eco friendly. Breakfast is extra, but get it. Wonderful way to start the day. This Inn is in walking distance to downtown for some fun shopping. It is very close to the Boardwalk. Once I park my car, I never use it again until I am ready to go... More
