my title says it all: its a good hotel if you want to spend some time with your friends or family. We came by car, had a good parking space and the rooms were ready. Only the water in the whirlpool was brownish, so not that recommendable. But since its close to the ocean (5min walk) its worth the money... More

We stayed in early October 2012. Our room was upgraded to 2 King bed room which ended up being 2 seperate rooms which worked out very well. All for the same price. It is very close to the Boardwalk. Accomodations and staff are very friendly and helpful.

The room was clean and big enough with basic amenities. Walls were a bit thin, though we were prepared for that as this is a lodge. The breakfast got the day started. Nothing special, except the waffles that were a nice addition. A big minus for me was that the WLAN did not work. After 1-2 minutes it stopped functioning... More

We stayed one night in Santa Cruz and I am very happy with our stay. We had a newly renovated room and for the price, we were very happy with the quality of the room. Excellent value for the accommodations. I would recommend that you ask for a room away from the breakfast room because it was a little loud... More

Ocean Pacific Lodge has a simple but attractive lobby with a beachy, Woody surf wagon themed mural & pictures . The office staff was friendly and efficient. There is a PC in the lobby but we didn't use it. Most of the parking spaces in the lot are quite narrow but there are a few wider spaces. The breakfast room... More

I booked a 2-double suite & was upgraded to a 2 KING suite! Very nice! The guy @ the desk was courteous & helpful The place is "older" and is being upgraded (front doors all blue-taped & ready for paint). Some of the upgrades are not good quality, skimping on the details (like in the bathroom; check out where the... More

We stayed here midweek where it was excellent value ($89). Our room was newly renovated and was beautiful. The shower was huge and had two heads which was the highlight!! The breakfast was very extensive with everything from oatmeal and granola to waffles and pastries!! It's only 5 mins walk to the wharf or downtown. But we were there for... More

We have had wildly divergent experiences staying in the Santa Cruz area and have generally found that for a mid-range hotel, the farther you are from the Boardwalk, the better the experience. However, since we were only going to spend one night on a quick jaunt to Santa Cruz to go to the Boardwalk, I decided to try a hotel... More

I did not have the experience that the other two prior reviewers did. We stayed in room 105 and it was very clean. Actually the hotel has done renovations since our last stay (we've gone to this hotel now 4 times in 6 years) - new paint, new bedding etc and it does make a difference. Yes, it is loud... More

Just remember if you get a room on the second floor the rooms above have spas in them and there is no insulation We stayed for 2 nights and both nights I had to ring reception because the upstairs people were having a spa after the cut off time of 10.00pm which I might add is way too late for...
