Dear Guest, Thank you so much for the PERFECT SCORE RATING. Thank you so much for staying at Ocean Pacific Lodge and taking the time to review your visit. I'm delighted to read you enjoyed your time here with us! Ocean Pacific Lodge is committed to providing each of our valued guests with clean, comfortable, well appointed rooms and nice extras like a seasonally heated swimming pool, two outdoor hot tubs, laundry facilities, pet friendly rooms and free parking. We have a variety of room types to fit each of our guests unique needs and our double king rooms are a hit with families. Two separate bedrooms make it easy to put the kiddos to bed in one room and let the grown ups watch television in the other. Plus, the boardwalk/wharf provides multiple restaurants to chose from. Downtown Santa Cruz is walking distance too and provides Woodstock's pizza, shops, ice cream and endless people watching. It's always nice to be able to quickly reach your hotel quickly after a long day at the beach. Please visit us again soon for another wonderful time at the Ocean Pacific Lodge! Stay safe and have a wonderful year! Regards, Ocean Pacific Lodge

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of your stay! It's possible I'm a little biased but I think our staff is amazing too! It is our goal to treat each guest with the same warmth and care we would expect while staying at a hotel. We want to hear all about your travels and point you toward more adventures! Like a lot of coastal towns, spring and summer lodging in Santa Cruz can be challenging to find and challenging to afford - our goal is to offer you a fair price, outstanding customer service and an unbeatable location to make your home base while visiting. Please consider giving us another opportunity to improve on your experience when next in Santa Cruz. Warmly, Naomi, Ocean Pacific Lodge

We love the proximity, walking distance to the Wharf and the beach. Our room was very clean. The only issue was they no longer have carpet in these rooms. You can hear every step people take in the unit above you. Other than that our stay was terrific. It was nice to have a good size mini fridge and a small microwave in the room

Oh no! I am so sorry to read you had noise issues during your stay with us. Our office is staffed overnight to monitor our property and we want to deal with noise issues right away, in hopes of rescuing your stay with us! Our first floor rooms are our designated pet friendly rooms and have wood floors; our second and third floor rooms do have carpet. We do recognize outside commotion can occasionally make our hotel a bit noisy. To help accommodate our guests, we have provided complimentary chamomile tea and ear plugs to help each guest enjoy a peaceful night. At minimum, Ocean Pacific Lodge is committed to offering each of our valued guests clean, comfortable, well appointed rooms and nice extras like a seasonally heated swimming pool, two outdoor hot tubs, pet friendly rooms and free parking! The free parking does really seal the deal since we are within walking distance to both downtown Santa Cruz and the beach/boardwalk area. We encourage our guests to explore our great little city on foot and skip expensive parking lots and beach traffic. Thanks again for staying with us. Please return for another visit soon! Warmly, Naomi, Ocean Pacific Lodge

PRO: There is a guest laundry on the second floor. Terrific idea 4 a stay at the beach. Everything was very clean, including the outside and pool area. CON: The bed was VERY FIRM.

Matthew, Thank you so much for staying with us and taking the time to review your visit. I'm glad we were able to provide you with a nice stay! I am sorry your bed was too firm. We want to resolve any guest problems right away including a room move if the one you're in doesn't quite suit you.. I'm guessing this wasn't an option given you likely didn't discover your bed was firm until you got in it! (-: Please know, we are committed to providing each of our guests with clean, comfortable, well appointed rooms and nice extras like a seasonally heated swimming pool, two outdoor hot tubs, laundry facilities and free parking! Our location makes the free parking extra helpful since traffic can be challenging near the beach and boardwalk area. Our front door is just a few blocks from the ocean and a similar distance to downtown Santa Cruz. Please visit us again soon! Warmly, Naomi, Ocean Pacific Lodge
