Ocean Pacific Lodge
Ranked #26 of 54 Hotels in Santa Cruz
Reviewed 28 July 2011

This hotel was a good average hotel, with a great location.

The hotel features free parking, WiFi and breakfast. The breakfast was pretty good, a wide selection of food and drinks.
The pool was very nice, and the staff were very friendly.
The room was big and clean.
The Hotel is located just a short walk (5 min) from The Pier and the Boardwalk in Santa Cruz., there are a lot of good restaurants on the Pier.

My family and I just returned from Santa Cruz,and our stay at Ocean Pacific Lodge yesterday Tuesday,July 26th,2011.We have family in Santa Cruz and have been traveling there for more than 22 yrs.We have stayed in many of the hotels there and finally have found the very best !!If your traveling to Santa Cruz don,t waste your money at any other hotel stay here.We had a room on the 2nd floor over looking the pool and it was great ! Rooms are very comfortable,clean,great breakfast,beautiful pool,2 hot tubs,and very friendly staff.The location is perfect walking distance to the board walk,beach.pier,and down town.We changed our stay several times adding extra days,we ended up adding 4 extra days and the hotel manager Peter was very accommodating,and very nice.If your going to Santa Cruz don,t stay any where else,you won,t be disapointed with Ocean Pacific.

Room Tip: Ask if they have a room facing the pool,they are the best !

We have been staying at the Ocean Pacific for the past 5 years. Its got everything you need and plus walking distance to everything. Very friendly staff. Good continental breakfast with waffles. We love staying in the Jr. Suite so the teens have their own separate room with TV.

Room conditions were pretty sad and run down. This used to be a very nice place to stay, but it's not nice anymore. The bathroom had peeling wallpaper, moldy grout around the shower enclosure, cracked tile on the floor and needed redoing. Weird smell in the room. Don't leave anything behind, you probably won't get it back. Called 3 times looking for items I left (my bad) in a drawer and e-mailed them once. No reply to anything. They finally told me after my 3rd phone call to them that if they didn't contact me that the items were not found. Someone took them!

Room Tip: Try somewhere else in town

Having a pet we were located on the first floor. The room smelled awful, the bed had fleas and there were patched holes in the walls. ALL NIGHT you could hear "horses galloping" over head. NOISY NOISY Shoddy construction - Upon complaining after 10pm, the front desk told us too bad and did not care if we ever returned or wrote a negative review. BUT at 10:30pm the manager said we could check out and he would refund our $$. Riiighhht!! Speaking to other guests the upon our checking out, we all shared the SAME experience. We all agreed at $200/night it would be better to sleep in our cars. A guest said the Bayview Inn next door was MUCH cleaner friendlier place.

My daughter and I stayed for the weekend at the Ocean Pacific Lodge. It is close enough to old downtown Santa Cruz to be easily accessible without the noise.
The room was clean with nice queen beds and linens, working fridge and microwave, adequate storage and plenty of towels. Having been to Santa Cruz many times, we both agreed that the hotel's amenities were more than we expected for the price paid. Free parking, Wifi, breakfast and excellent staff made our stay easy and enjoyable. We will look forward to our next stay at this hotel.

The position of this hotel is great, free parking, free internet, free breakfast which was one of the best I ever had in a motel, the staff was extremely kind when I made them notice that the room hadn't been clean properly they made it clean again but unfortunately it was possible just the day after......so actually we spent the first night with everything packed in our bags since we didn't want to mix our clean clothes with hair of other people and .....
