After reading all these great reviews we decided to give it a shot this past weekend when we had an opportunity to spend a Friday night down there. Well, you know you're in for trouble when you find earplugs on the bedside table. I only wish I had found them the night we checked in and not the next morning... More

Walking distance to EVERYTHING. that alone saved us $50+ on parking during our 2 day visit. employes were courteous and helpful and the night guy was kinda cute ;) lol. rooms were clean and... More

The location is great! Walking distance to everything, downtown shops and restaurants as well as the boardwalk. The walls seemed a little thin but it's worth the location. Staff was friendly , and we love the city of Santa Cruz.

We stayed here in July 2012 and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is very close to the beach and the boardwalk and is a clean, nice place to sleep. The breakfast was decent too. We were somewhat disappointed with Santa Cruz, as after doing the boardwalk, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot to do. Everything shuts down after... More

Hotel was very clean, though parking spots were tight and at a premium. Buffet breakfast was OK. walking distance to Santa Cruz Pier was much appreciated. Hotel staff were very eager to please apologizing since someone was in line in front of us - totally unnecessary, but appreciated none the less. Website pictures were somewhat deceiving - this is a... More

When I told a friend about plans to visit Santa Cruz, I was warned that most of the hotels close to the boardwalk/wharf/waterfront are crummy and run-down. The Ocean Pacific Lodge is a definite exception to that rule! It's a very nice facility. As others have pointed out, the hotel has been renovating its rooms. The accommodations were simple but...

I read the previous reviews from a few years ago saying that this hotel was dated, not clean, etc. Pay no attention to those old reviews as the Ocean Pacific Lodge has been renovated. Our room was clean and freshly painted with very nice decor. The bathroom was large and had a beautifully tiled double shower and a vanity area... More

Road-tripping down the coast, and other than bookend stays we had nothing planned in advance. Chose between this and the Torch Lite as a last minute, cheap stay. Best thing about the hotel was the great location; walking distance to downtown and the beach, far enough from the beach to avoid the pinch-points when driving around Santa Cruz. Parking looked...

This hotel really exceeded my expectations in every way! The location is convenient to shops, the boardwalk and the beach and yet it's very quiet. I noticed the rooms were very soundproof as one morning my neighbors were being pretty loud but I could only hear them when I left the room. The rooms are clean and well appointed with... More
