Thank you so much for staying with us and taking the time to review our property. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. Not to brag or anything...but our staff is awesome! (-: We all truly care about Ocean Pacific Lodge and I think that genuine attitude shows in the care taken with both our property and our valued guests. We are in an ideal spot for exploring all Santa Cruz has to offer. Less than a ten minute walk to downtown Pacific Avenue or an equally short walk to the beach and the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. We have complimentary parking for our guests, making it easy to avoid finding parking, plugging meters or parking in expensive parking lots. Please visit us again soon! Warmly, Naomi, Ocean Pacific Lodge

Yes! In my completely non-biased opinion we are amazing! (-: Your positive experience here is the one we hope all of our valued guests have during a stay at Ocean Pacific Lodge. At a minimum, our goal is to provide clean, comfortable, well appointed rooms and nice extras like a seasonally heated swimming pool, two hot tubs, laundry facilities, pet friendly rooms and best of all free parking! Our free parking makes it convenient to leave your car in our lot and explore all the hot spots in Santa Cruz on foot. Thank you so much for staying with us and for taking the time to review your visit. Please, visit us again soon! Warmly, Naomi, Ocean Pacific Lodge

The pool and spa were well maintained and the rooms were very clean. The staff was friendly. The property was very close to the beach/boardwalk.

Thank you so much for staying with us and taking the time to review your stay with us. I am delighted you enjoyed Ocean Pacific Lodge! Our number one goal is to provide clean, comfortable, well appointed rooms with nice extras like a seasonally heated swimming pool, two outdoor hot tubs, laundry facilities, pet friendly rooms and free parking. Our location is spectacular too! (-: Our front door is just a two block stroll to the beach and boardwalk area. Equally close is Pacific Avenue, the hub of downtown Santa Cruz - music, restaurants, shops, (seriously good shoe shops), and great people watching await. Please visit us again soon! Warmly, Naomi, Ocean Pacific Lodge

We stayed one night on our way back from Central CA. The hotel is a bit dated, but comfortable. The staff was very kind and helpful. It's a great location-only 2 blocks from the Santa Cruz boardwalk where we had a great dinner and watched the sun go down. It is a short drive from seeing the redwoods. We would stay there again.

I am so happy to read you enjoyed your stay with us! Your experience here is precisely the one we want all of our guests to have and I am so glad we succeeded with you! We are pretty fantastic! (-: Our location can't get much better. We are an easy stroll away from the beach, the boardwalk and the pier; we are equally close to downtown Santa Cruz. Take advantage of our free parking and let your feet take you on all your Santa Cruz adventures! We know there are a lot of options for lodging in Santa Cruz and we are honored you chose Ocean Pacific Lodge. Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a review! Warmly, Naomi, Ocean Pacific Lodge

Location is great, very convenient to the beach/Boardwalk, restaurants, and shops. Completely satisfied with check-in and lack of extra amenities given the low price of room. Bathroom was clean and shower was beautiful. Bed comfort was average, however all linens were clean. Would stay again.

Thank you so much for staying with us and taking the time to review your stay. Your experience here is precisely the one we want all of our guests to enjoy while staying at Ocean Pacific Lodge. Succeeding in providing a quality stay is our main goal, to that end we provide 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! Our location is top notch too. Ocean Pacific Lodge is just a stroll away from both downtown Santa Cruz and the beach boardwalk area. Our free parking is a nice bonus since Santa Cruz parking can be expensive and hard to find especially near the beach. Thank you for your kind words. Please come and see us again soon.

The room was nice and close to the beach but the carpet was dirty and there was trash left behind and even a used washcloth, so not sure about cleanliness. Good parking lot and close to stores and restaurants

Jannie, Oh no! I am so sorry for the problems you experienced with your room. You are right; I would absolutely question the cleanliness of a room with the conditions you described. Please know, we are always willing to move guests to a new room better suiting their needs and we absolutely are not okay with anything but clean, comfortable, well-appointed rooms. I will discuss the issues you experienced with our staff to prevent this from occurring again. Again, I am so sorry. Please consider giving us another opportunity to show you just how great a visit with us can be! Warmly, Naomi, Ocean Pacific Lodge
