HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE. FYI they changed their name to Oceans Lodge so dont be like me and mix this up from Oceans Pacific Lodge(which is a great place) the rooms are dirty and stink. The lobby is dirty and smells like Indian Food. The place was awful and staff was rude. I can not stress how bad this place is. DONT GO

Lovely, accommodating gentleman behind the front desk made us feel welcome & safe. The awesome lady @ his side was just perfect and super helpful. This dynamic duo were true to their advertising & then above and beyond our expectations. Not every "alleged" pet-friendly hotel is this awesome. Our cat loved all the warm fuzzy blankets & our dog fell in love w/ the nearby San Lorenzo River scenic walks. What a great location & OMG such a value. What a deal. They are next to the Santa Cruz landmark -- the "diner" (The Santa Cruz Diner) and all the local great vibe. This place has it all -- the wonderful staff was diligent and on top of every request and then kept going that extra mile further to make us so happy that this is the very very 1st review of anything I have ever written!! I'm always dictating critical reviews in my head, but never put them online. But this gentleman & his beautiful wife made us feel so @ home, we didn't want to leave. It was super clean, splendidly WARM & all the rooms were inviting (especially ours). They had so much parking & the manager patrolled vigilently and literally made us feel safe. This manager, Richard, was soft spoken & carries a big stick. It's amazing to find such a rare couple & staff that actually care about your stay. Their adorable dog patrolled right by his master's side and was the perfect mascot. Our dog loved him. When my cat & dog & wife are this happy, we had to tell the world about this hidden jewel. What a great value. They are changing their name to Ocean Lodge & I'll bet this amazing motel is going to get even better b/c here is an owner & managing couple that are awesome & stand out in this competitive hospitality industry..

Room Tip: We stayed both upstairs and downstairs and our cat and dog loved both.

We were told we'd have a non-smoking room, but the room reaked of tobacco and was clearly not non-smoking. The shower was so dirty that no one would take one. The neighboring room was extremely loud and this was not addressed other than to have them close the door. In the morning, there was yelling in the parking lot and many threats to call the police.

For this experience, we paid much more than a motel of this "level" is worth, even without all the issues mentioned above. When I requested a reduction to our night's fee, I was told "no", in no uncertain terms and without further explanation.

We stayed at this hotel because it was only $60/night and by the end of our one night stay we wish we would have spent that extra money for a different hotel. the walls are so thin that we heard the guy next door farting, hocking loogies, singing to himself, and whistling. The shower leaked and there were ants in the shower as well. Even worse was the picture above the bed was of a middle eastern lady with piercings staring right at you (we covered it up with a towel) the whole place is run down and small...and in the middle of the night we heard the guy last night screaming at himself then answering himself as if he was in a fight with himself. It was the worse hotel I have ever stayed at...DO NOT GO TO IT!

Nice people managing the motel, very helpful. Recently renovated bathroom; otherwise, very modest accommodations, which I don't mind. However, the mattress was beyond worn out. My moderately arthritic back is still aching from last night's attempted sleep, and I've been up and out of the bed for over 4 hours.
