Close to beach but loud

This is a loud, family beach hotel. Don't come here if you want to relax or have a romantic getaway. It is perfect for families who want to easy beach access, pool, etc. There are not many options near the beach that are updated and clean that don't cost over 200 night. This hotel is in great need of an update. TVs are circa 1980 and the direct tv doesn't work well with them. Had to have staff come up to get our direct tv to work. Didn't use the very old hot tub in bath because it smelled so strongly of disinfectant. Family friendly YES, close to boardwalk, YES, quiet No. Ear plugs are in the rooms.

Mommie and Me time

There was a lot of foot traffic in the very late hours of the night, and early morning. The mattress was very hard and uncomfortable.

Nice weekend for business & pleasure

I was in town for a Saturday training, and brought my partner and made a weekend of it. This hotel has comfortable beds and is in a great location walking distance from downtown or from the wharf.

Perfect Location

The hotel was in the perfect location! only a few blocks from the wharf and a few blocks from the downtown area. The only thing that wasn't perfect was a slightly moldy shower. the rest of the room was perfect and the staff was pleasant. Would definitely stay here again.

Great location

My family and friends stay here because of its location. It's overpriced in the summer - but everything is in Santa Cruz. The pool and hot tub are great, and it's a quick walk to the beach.

Last-minute getaway

My husband and I decided to get away for a few days and booked the morning of our arrival. We were looking for a 'decent' place that had a hot tub. Many hotels in Santa Cruz have pools, but they don't all have hot tubs. We were lucky to find the Ocean Pacific Lodge -- a little pricey for what you get, but that's Santa Cruz during high season. It was only a few blocks from the pier which was an ideal location. The room was clean and bed was comfortable. The fluffy duvet was nice, but too warm for the summer months. Since we were on the ground floor, we didn't feel safe leaving our window open at night for the ocean breeze, so had to keep the wall air conditioner on all night which was a bit noisy. The pool area was nice with two 4-5 person hot tubs, heated pool and plenty of seating. There was also a breakfast room with free waffles, pastries, cereal, coffee, etc. nice to have on-site. This place is great for families, and they allow pets -- the floors in the rooms are faux-wood so no embedded carpet smells and great if you have allergies. The staff was very friendly and eager to please. Our only complaint was that most of the vending machines were out of order, and there was nothing the Lodge could do since they were controlled by the vendor. We enjoyed our stay, and especially liked the location!
