Gross place, was not clean. Glad I brought my own blankets. Bathroom was falling apart and dirty. Location was in a horrible neighborhood. Will not be returning. Pictures are not accurate and it's not walking distance to Boardwalk. Keep looking for something else!

The Pacific Inn offers you what any motel room does: the standard room with double queen beds, TV, microwave, fridge, and bathroom. Our room was clean and pleasant to spend the night. Overall it got the job done as that is all we needed from the pacific inn. The issue with the motel I believe is the location; it's not... More

If you give this place more than 2 stars, then you must be comparing it to the dozens of similar properties in Santa Cruz. It might be a 3 star Santa Cruz property, but everywhere else in the world, it is a MAX of 2 stars. Pros: I think the young guys running this place are really trying. The room... More

Scary place. Sheriff made a drug bust in the parking lot when we went for snacks. Parking lot at hotel was so tiny our Jeep Cherokee could not be exited except through rear door. Bathroom was prehistoric. Room decorations were embarrassing. Hotel management had such a strong accent they could not be understood. Atmosphere in hallways was reminiscent of Holocaust... More

Honestly, I don't think I would recommend this hotel. It's one of those things where we were late getting reservations and it was available when we booked online. I think the price point is low enough where customers put up with a mostly bad hotel. My wife and I stayed here a week in July. The hotel was completely booked... More

After staying at this hotel for one night we more or less fled in the morning. The room was filthy and smelled of chlorine, the toilett was brokenand the staff was very confused. Although the hotel looks rather good at the pictures it is not. Do not go there...

We only stayed here for one night on our way up the coast, but it wasn't too bad of a spot. The rooms were a little dated, but they were clean and comfy. It's not far to drive down to the Santa cruz pier and amusement park or to the Main Street for food.

Do not stay here if you want a clean room. I wouldn't even take my shoes off due to the fact the carpet is stained and dirty. Our room was never cleaned and we had to ask for towels the second day. There was a musty smell. I did not sleep well because I could feel the springs in the... More
