We booked Ocean Pacific Lodge for two nights. The room was updated. The employees were courteous. We enkoyed the breakfast especially the waffle maker. We could walk to the Municipal Wharf in less than ten minutes. We enjoyed a short ride to Monterrey and Carmel. We will return to this hotel the next time we visit Santa Cruz.

My wife and I stayed on a Monday and chose a suite on the third floor back window to the pool area, nice and clean. Needed a update in the room but very clean a big plus. We travel often and do not always give great reviews however, due to location and hotel we felt that the Ocean Pacific Lodge...

I was returning to Santa Cruz for a second interview, but the hotel I had stayed in last time was booked up: so I reserved a room at the Ocean Pacific Lodge after shopping around on TripAdvisor. I'm normally wary of motels near the beach, as they tend to get a lot of noisy party types and families. My overnight...

The location is good being a short walk to the beach and Main Street , hotel was very clean and provided an adequate breakfast, we had a ground floor room with Windows facing the street which made it very noisy you you know you have to worry when they supply ear plugs in the room

Keep in mind that this is a 2 star hotel. I have never stayed in a motel before, let alone a 2 star. I think that for the price, and the fact it is 2 star, it was perfectly fine. The biggest issues we had were that the room was way too small for 5 of us (we had a...

I was in a jam traveling with my giant Irish Wolfhound. The Ocean Pacific Lodge was recommended to me as a dog friendly hotel. Very professional and helpful front desk, the room decor was nice and trendy, beds super comfortable. The wood floors were perfect for a guest with dog. In the heart of downtown Santa Cruz, near Wharf. I...

This was our first time in Santa Cruz, we had not reservations and we found this hotel. The front desk manager was friendly and very helpful. It is near from the downtown and the beach, crossing the street you can find a skate park, I enjoyed skate with my daughter there. We loved Santa Cruz and the next time we...

We booked this the same day through Hotel Tonight (Great App) and stayed for one night. The double King was a good size. This is a no fuss, no frills hotel which delivers on the basics. The pool was a good size and very sheltered with a good Jacuzzi tub. Free Wi-Fi was available as was free parking. A strong...

Nice welcoming staff. Nice clean room, good facilities, comfy bed. We had a ground floor room with a view to the lovely pool, which had plenty of seating. Managed to fit in a bit of swimming and sunbathing before heading to the Boardwalk, which is about a 15 minute walk from hotel. Nice big breakfast room. On site laundry. Free...
