Ocean Pacific Lodge

Second best to beach front, with only a short walk in either direction you can find yourself at the beach beside the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk or downtown on Pacific Ave. They rent bikes too, which is a nice way to see more of lovely Santa Cruz.
Breakfast, pool and hot tub, washer and dryer (you need quarters!), comfortable bed, clean. We were satisfied with our stay.

I wanted to see what Santa Cruz was like and stayed here for two nights to check out the Santa Cruz Warf and the downtown area and the University of Cal. Santa Cruz. The location is only a block away from the SC Warf and light traffic around the Lodge so it was relatively quiet here. The room was fine but there was a distinct scent that wasn't offensive but I would describe as a disinfectant smell when I first entered the room but did not notice it after spending more time in the room. The Lodge is not far from the downtown area so it is possible to walk there but I drove there due to overcast skies and rainy weather. They do provide a free breakfast which is limited to waffles, yogurt, pastries, oatmeal, coffee and juices but that is all I usually need when traveling.

Myself and my partner really liked this hotel. We are travelling the coast and used this hotel as i stop over. We had a king room, it was large and comfortable. Very quiet. Easy to walk in to town but we drove closer to boardwalk in the morning. Probably could've walked but it was freezing. Breakfast was lovely- especially the waffles. Receptionist was friendly and helpful. Would stay again!!

There must not be any type of sound insulation between rooms. You can hear an adjoining room as though they are in your own room. Our room had lights that were unplugged, syrup on the arms of the desk chair, M&M,s on the floor next to the bed, the coffee station was not attended to by staff, the toilet paper holder was broken. There was no hotel staff in the breakfast room. Items offered were full of carbs, very, very little protein.
The location is great, 4-5 minute walk to the beach. The afternoon and evening staff were very helpful.
With so many places to stay in Santa Cruz, I would not recommend this place.

Room Tip: stay off the ground floor and ask to see the room before you pay for it

The rooms have a mini-fridge and look like they have been remodeled recently. The hotel outside, though, is in need of a refresh. The staff were friendly and the hotel is a 10 minute walk to the beach. Not bad for the price. We would stay there again.
