Recent guest reviews

I really enjoyed our stay here. SC hotels can get pretty pricey, but I thought this hotel had a lot going for it. Great quality, great location, great facility at a very reasonable price. We had the pleasure of staying in a room with a jacuzzi and living room and had a blast! Our shower had dual shower heads which can wash your front and keep your back warm. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was good for a continental breakfast (although, I wish there were a gluten-free option, but is rarely found anywhere). Overall, the Ocean Pacific Lodge will be our go-to when we come back.

We were there for the weekend, we got the place clean and comfortable, all amenities were good. We loved the place, we want to come back!

Within walking distance to everything,downtown,beach,wharf.We had a great time and the hotel was perfect!

Room was great and staff was excellent. We stayed 2 different nights during our visit for our nieces wedding. Both rooms were great and beds comfy and simple breakfast adequate for our needs.

Clean, but a little dated. Nice breakfast. Close to wharf and boardwalk.

Nice hotel within easy walking distance to the Boardwalk. Large room, good amenities, friendly staff.

Good motel"................ ............. ........

It was close to beach and a turf soccer field very nice

A block from the wharf and beach. ADA rooms are queen, no kings available. Pets welcome is great but they ask what your ADA reason is for service animal and ask you to sign form, feels like being accused of lying. No carpet in room. Lousy thin towels. Good bedding. Sink outside bathroom. Hot tub and pool always nice.

nice rooms but they need to pay attention to details. All the baseboards needed cleaned, the bathroom door obviously doesnt get wiped down as i could see other people dirt from their hands when they push open the door,walls needed wiped don. Other than that the toilet appeared clean and the beds appeared clean. The bed was kinda stiff but i slept ok. Breakfast was good although a random homeless person made a huge mess for the attendant (opened the pancake batter all over) so as her back was turned cleaning she snuck back in with a huge hoodie and mask and stole a lot of food. tried coming back in 15 minutes later but the attendant shood her away.

Conveniently located to the wharf/board walk... definitely within walking distance. Felt like a safe area. The parking lot could stand to be a little more roomy. Didn't get to try out the pool since it was rained by. Continental breakfast has a great selection. Would stay here again

Stayed one night and did not check out any beach or sights due to extreme weather.

We loved this hotel. Check in was smooth. Staff was very friendly & welcoming. Hotel room was clean, beds were very comfy and had a microwave and fridge! It was close to downtown and the beach though we didnt go to the beach because it is February. 10 min walk to downtown. Area was safe. Parking was a breeze and we got to check in early and check out late at noon for no extra charge. You can check out as late as 3pm for $25. Breakfast was basic with a waffle maker, oatmeal, cereal, yogurt, bread, some fruit & coffee and juice. Waffles were so good. I recommend this hotel for its cleanliness, close proximity to both downtown and the beach, friendly staff & amenities (fridge, microwave, free parking, free breakfast). Great stay.

Great location, free parking, spacious rooms. Somewhat old (tube TV, lived in furnitures), but clean. Would stay there again.

decent hotel in a great location. nice king size bed. friendly staff. clean.

Everything about the location is wonderful. You are close enough to walk to just about everything without the craziness of people crawling all over the streets. The bed was comfortable, the chairs in the room were comfortable and handy. It was the perfect launching spot and a good place to recoup. after being out and about. Thank you.

The price is right for a Santa Cruz night. Close walk to the beach and boardwalk. Good base to get to surrounding areas. Comfortable motel. Standard breakfast. Slept well.

Nice hotel, close to boardwalk and the Pier. Spent the evening at the Boardwalk at the carnival, had dinner on the Pier, watched otters swimming in the ocean and elephant sea lions under the pier.

Half Mile walk to the pier, half mile walk to downtown, and a mile to the Boardwalk! Great location and Clean...great place to sleep. I don't really care about amenities because the only thing I'm doing in my room and is showering and sleeping. Clean, Quite, and Walking distance to everything! Was there on a family Trip.

Our room had a horrible smell. After going online and reading reviews about it being pet friendly, I realized the smell was cat pee. Opening the window helped a little bit. The bathroom exhaust fan didn't work and the bathroom door hinges were rusty.

Thank you so much for staying with us and for taking the time to review Ocean Pacific Lodge. I am so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and will return! We understand guests have many options for accommodations in Santa Cruz and the prices can be high. We want you to choose us and to that end, we will do our best to always get the basics right. We strive to offer competitively priced, clean, comfortable rooms with creature comforts like a seasonably heated pool, two hot tubs, a free continental breakfast and much more!

A five minute walk will take you to the ocean, Santa Cruz beach boardwalk and the Santa Cruz wharf. Thanks again! Can't wait to see you soon! Warmly,

Yippee! Thank you so much for your review! We value all comments, but well, nice ones are particularly good to hear! Our location is pretty darn good too! I heard a guest once say it's close to the hustle but not the bustle. You can't hear the screams from the roller coasters but you're a five minute walk away from the fun! Downtown is equally close and provides everyone something to see! Great shops, a famous bookshop and many restaurants make eclectic downtown a must see! Thanks again and please return soon! Warmly,

good bed, lousy towels...

A block from the wharf and beach. ADA rooms are queen, no kings available. Pets welcome is great but they ask what your ADA reason is for service animal and ask you to sign form, feels like being accused of lying. No carpet in room. Lousy thin towels. Good bedding. Sink outside bathroom. Hot tub and pool always nice.
