I was happy enough with my room. I agree that the neighbouring building is possibly occupied by undesirables..... But that is not the fault of the inn keeper. The room itself was slightly dated, but clean. There was a heavy scent of cleaning product, but I acclimatised to that quickly. Overall, I booked the cheapest room I could find in... More

As soon as we walked into our room it smelled horrible and the window was wide open with no screen. The room was tiny with two beds, barely enough room to move around. I tried to turn on the heat but there weren't even buttons on the heater and only cold air came out. The room was dirty with crumbs... More

This inn is way over priced and the room we got was horrible. The room had a strong (chlorine?) smell, had tons of ants crawling around, and it's in a bad neighborhood. Would never go back ever again!

1. The room was poorly cleaned and poorly maintained. (The previous occupants "personal lubricant" was still lying on the floor). 2. The hot tub had so much chlorine in it that after 40 minutes, it noticeably bleached our swimsuits. 3. Almost half the lights/light switches in the room did not work. 4. The tub had been painted white awhile back... More

This was very over priced for what they offer and disappointed, it has recently had a fresh coat of paint but the room was very tired. The furniture was very old and tatty and the carpet also old and grubby. I will say the staff were friendy and helpful and the bed comfortable. The pictures on the website are very... More

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
