I went in with low expectations. Paid $113.00.Disgusting with even worse service. Bugs, plugged sink, wet floor. their solution was to put towels over disgusting mystery wet spot. Towels and advice "don't go barefoot in room". Owners words. Owner was obviously a broken man due to the the constant bull he had to deal with. No excuse he was incredibly... More

I first chose this hotel for the price, worried why it was cheaper than most. Well I was pleasantly surprised!! This is a wonderful hotel with nice staff and excellent location. So convenient to go downtown right on Soquel. Quiet rooms. Nice beds. I'd recommend this to friends and family, can't beat the price, too !! I'll come again when... More

They did not even give me a replacement... More

The average rating I give this could go down if you are pickier than I am. I want good price, clean accommodations and quiet sleep. The room was fairly quiet, but there was an air conditioner in the next room that kicked on every hour for about 15 minutes all night long. That woke me again and again. The room... More

My adult son and I spent two nights at the Oceana Inn, August 15-16, 2013, and it was definitely not worth the price. On the 15th (Thursday) the room cost $89.00 and on Friday the room jumped to $189.00! I guess the best way to describe why I didn't think it was worth the price would be to let me... More

I booked my hotel stay through expedia and although I entered that I wanted a room with two beds and that I was traveling with 3 kids, they charged me for the room, WAY TOO MUCH for this place and didn't charge me for the kids. When I got to the hotel there was an extra 20 dollar charge per... More

Let's begin by the holes in the blankets, the odors of mold, the actual mold in the bathroom, the plug of blow dryer, it was split... More

Overall its a fly by night hotel. Just because we found a baggie of "white powder" on the bathroom floor. And some creepy old lady was staring us down at the pool. Oh, and the cleaning ladies dress like poor s***s. So basically I wouldn't stay here again.

Just got the bill for an 11 night stay at this travelodge formerly "Oceana Inn". We have been staying here for the past 13 years once or twice a year. The hotel is okay and they provide adequit service. After years of seeing the owners tack on one fee after another this last fee "linen service" plus "marketing fee" is... More
