“Attention to detail!”
Reviewed 28 June 2012 via mobile

Loved the attention to detail at this place. We only had time to stay one night. Great value. Nice decor-clean and green! Best in-room coffee-Newman's Own and a single serve Keurig. Just a really nice pleasant surprise. Staff was also really nice-they recommended some great places to eat. We've traveled a lot-whoever runs the place pays attention to the details. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Hotel was under refurbishment when we stayed - our room was huge and had been freshly decorated but did not smell of paint. The bathroom was fantastic too, our shower was big enough for a family! Breakfast was fine, although coffee machine instructions would have been useful! The big plus is the pool and two hot tubs which were a great way to wind down, and the location, it was less than 5 mins walk to the Boardwalk/pier and beach. Overall, a fantastic place to stay.

Room Tip: The rooms by the pool are great. Ours came with free earplugs though as the windows are currently o...

We needed a pet friendly hotel in the area for a couple of nights. The options are limited when you have a dog and 2 kids with you. This one fit the bill. All I can say was it was clean enough and breakfast was included. The breakfast was standard...not bad. No eggs or anything but had muffins/waffles etc.
Location was decent. No pretty views or anything. Just off the busy street, but convenient. These were the pros.

Now the cons:
Very motel like atmosphere. There were a lot of noisy people in the middle of the night, laughing and partying. The walls are thin and our kids and dog woke up with all the noise. Nobody from the hotel staff bothered to stop the noise. We did not complain because it was our second night and we knew we would be out of there in the morning.
The toilet flush was very weak and annoying.
Te bedding was cheap and rough. Not very comfortable.
We did not have high expectations but we expected better since the reviews were pretty good.
I would not recommend this to families with kids. If you are young and with a pet then this may be an okay place for you.

We stayed here for one night for my boyfriends birthday. Check-in was easy; we even got an upgrade! Our room was clean, beds were comfy and the sitting area was larger than most! It was so close to the boardwalk and Pacific Ave bars/restaurants/shopping that we had so much to do! No issues with noise or anything. Didn't hit up the pool because it rained, otherwise I would've been there! Breakfast in the morning includes make your own waffles...a lot better than most. I will stay here EVERY time I hit up SC!

Ocean Pacific Lodge is a pet friendly and family friendly inn. It is in an ideal location for surfing, going to the board walk and beach. O.P. Lodge is also close to a nice down town area with lots of restaurants. The rooms are large,has comfortable beds, large flat screen tv and folks were nice. The breakfast was pretty good too.

Just up the road and within walking distance from Cowell's Beach, the pier and Boardwalk, Ocean Pacific Lodge is a great location if you're staying in Santa Cruz. The rooms were good sized (two queen beds), the beds comfy, clean room (some minor wear on walls). In room coffee, frig, microwave. Pool area was well kept, and had two jacuzzi. Staff was helpful and let us park in their lot before we checked in for the day. Breakfast was good - make your own waffles, cereal, toast, juice - nothing fancy, but decent food to start your day.
