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

Had the chance to stay here recently when in town to attend a concert. The Pacific Blue is on Pacific Avenue, in the heart of Santa Cruz. Pacific is the cities "hip" shopping district, with lots of cool shops and restaurants. Street musicians, students...great, fun, laid-back Santa Cruz attitude. The hotel is at the quiet end of the street, a... More

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
