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

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

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.

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!
