We decided to stay last minute and chose this hotel based off previous reviews we read. The only room left was the King Suite with Jacuzzi tub. The room was clean but very old and needs maintenance. The jacuzzi was falling apart and the wallpaper was pealing everywhere. The pillows were so hard I couldn't sleep because I got such...

When checking in the hotel staff were extremely friendly, quick, and accommodating. The room was remodeled, very nice and fit what we were looking for - they even accommodate pets! After enjoying night one (great location) I checked availability for night two and the gentleman on the phone told me "no problem" and they were going to charge the credit...

We were delighted with our one night in this hotel. It's within easy walking distance of the wharf and beach. Considering the price we paid we were surprised by the amenities in the room like dual shower heads, Keurig coffee machine and large wall-mounted flat screen TV. The staff was accomodating and the room immaculate. We weren't able to stay...

My husband and I stayed at the Ocean Pacific for a quick getaway weekend. Loved the proximity to the boardwalk, very friendly & helpful staff. The room was large and clean. The grounds as a whole were well kept and easy to move around. I like the neighborhood better than many of the other hotels. Obviously the Dream Inn is...

We stayed at this location once before, and it was satisfactory. Affordable and walking distance to the famous Santa Cruz beach area. Location, location, location. 3rd floor Jacuzzi room. Thought we might repeat. Booked reservations two months in advance for this weekend. When I called to confirm everything last night, I was told by a young, seemingly clueless worker with...

We were able to get a weekend room last minute here. The price was no higher than other hotels in the area. Paid $310 for Saturday and Sunday. the location couldn't be beat. Downtown is a ten minute walk away. The beach, boardwalk, and wharf is a four minute walk down the way. We went for the Santa Cruz half...

Stayed there one night on my way through CA. Had a room on the 2nd floor overlooking the street. The room itself was big, with fridge and coffee maker. There were a lot of good TV channels, although the TV itself was a bit outdated. Everything seemed clean and worked properly. I found the location good as well - it...
