The front desk personnel were very helpful, with good recommendations for dinner. The room was clean, but very outdated. The TV was from the 70s, the bathtub was old, the bathroom could use an update, and the air conditioner was not too efficient. Beds were fine, breakfast was ok. Pretty pricey for what you get.

Great Value for the price. They pretty much think of everything to make your stay comfortable. To start with: The Price was fair, the breakfast sufficient, only a 10 minute walk to the Boardwalk, the room was clean, and organized, the staff extremely pleasant,The pool and hot tub heated and very relaxing. We had no complaints. The fact that our... More

So I stayed here a couple of months ago when the prices were about a third of what we paid recently. A couple of months ago I wondered if the maintenance had just quit as the hotel and room needed a few things tweaking on it. I couldn't believe it we got the same room again!, what a coincidence! But... More

Extremely clean, friendly staff, lovely pool, a great free breakfast AND you can bring your pet for $30 extra. A real find. Within walking distance of Cowell's Beach and the Santa Cruz Boardwalk. Really enjoyed my stay here.

I've stayed at OPL on numerous occasions. It was better this time because my room was upgraded. Fresh paint and beautifully tiled large shower improved my room. Previously rooms were in need of TLC. I don't know if all rooms are better or not. Outside is kept very clean... Pool, walk ways, breakfast room. My room was mostly clean, however... More

Our room was small and we were charged an extra 30.00 per day due to having our dog with us. The walls are thin and neighborly noise is unavoidable which is unfortunate. Customer service is average and one evening the cleaning lady decided to clean our room a little after 5 pm. She was pressing to get us out of... More

My wife, our Service Dog and I stayed for 2 days on a weeks vacation. They have a Military rate that's hard to beat. The staff is friendly, the rooms are fine, the pool is clean, the hot tub is very relaxing, & the continental breakfast is OK. I've seen some reviews about the paper thin walls and they're right....

After reading several reviews, both positive and negative, I decided that this was the best hotel for the location and price. I've stayed in a lot of hotels and figured it couldn't be that bad. I was SO wrong. I get that a lot of things that factored into the bad aspect of my stay couldn't be helped. But some... More
