I selected this facility for it's proximity to the beach and to Kaiser Arena. The primary reason for this trip was to go to the Santa Cruz Warrior D-League basketball game Saturday night. The room is neat and clean. It's quiet enough for me, which is important to me. The included breakfast was exceptionally poor unless you think cereal, juice,...

Got some lipstick on this pig! It is what it is, a cheap hotel, next to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk & Downtown Shopping - just where I wanted to stay. The room was ok, semi-remodeled, old TV - slow wi-fi, but it was clean. Walls are paper thin, and they allow dogs of all sizes - and our neighbor chose...

When I go to Santa Cruz, I usually stay here. I just got back today. Park your car and then walk to the beach, the Boardwalk or the pier/wharf. The rooms are fine. They have a microwave and refrigerator, which I don't use. They have free breakfast- make your own waffles. They also have some cereal, yogurt, pastry apples and...

Do not stay in this junk motel ! It was so dirty and disgusting! There were white fluid stains on the dark green bed spread ! The room smelled like old wet towels and the walls are so thin you can hear everything ! The staf was rude ! Biggest waste of money !

Stayed with Family . Was clean and nice . Breakfast room was great size and had multiple items. Simple yet great and clean. Fellow at front desk was very helpful and kind. The location was great . Easy walk to the Boardwalk. At this price point is a great choice for exploring Santa Cruz!

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
