We enjoyed our stay. The room was updated with a very nice amenities like a two-headed shower, a Keurig, microwave and a small fridge. Everything was very clean. My only complaint would be thin walls. However, the motel provided earplugs, so they have already addressed the

This was a very last minute reservation as our original place had given us conflicting information regarding our pet. We made this reservation on the day we were arriving, just hours before coming. They accepted pets, were very easy to deal with, and extremely friendly. The

We were extremely pleased with the room, essentially two rooms or a studio, which was perfect for us and our daughter and friend. Separate sleeping quarters and shared bath. The place was booked solid, the rooms were clean, and we felt it was a great price point for the

Ocean Pacific Lodge is quite fabulous! (-: Our many positive reviews generally reflect this fabulousness and I'm so proud to pass on your kind words to our dedicated staff. Silliness aside, our guests' satisfaction is the essential element of our business and we strive to rise to each opportunity to grow and improve that guest satisfaction. Our intent is to nail the basics - a clean, comfortable, well-appointed room, a dedicated and responsive staff and to provide nice extras like laundry facilities, bike rentals, a seasonally heated pool, hot tubs and FREE parking! Our big rooms are a great fit for families, a single king size bed in each bedroom separated by a bathroom creates a bit of room to stretch out and an opportunity for adults to stay up past their kiddos bedtime! In my case, I'm pretty sure the kids would out last me! Thank you so much for staying with us and for taking the time to review your visit. Please come and see us again! Warmly, Naomi, Ocean Pacific Lodge

I liked the Place, it had a pool and jacuzzis out on the yard, plenty of parking space, and the location was good. The room was good size and the bed comfortable. The window was small and did not let light in, which is my only complaint. The Place was good value too, went in

Clean, quiet and dog friendly. Location was easy to find. Not too far from beaches and boardwalk. Easy walk to downtown. Laundry room on site. We really enjoyed our stay and would stay here again. We stayed 4 nights. Only complaint, the parking was a bit difficult but adequate.

Thank you so much for staying with us and taking the time to review Ocean Pacific Lodge! We love our canine guests! Each furry family member gets a treat at check-in and a comfy dog bed on request. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and will pass on your happy tidings to our staff. OPL does not just say we care about our guests: we sincerely believe in the quality of our property and believe it shows in the happy faces of our guests. We treat each of our guests like the unique individuals they are and we aim to offer our guests impeccable service from first contact to last. Our location is pretty darn incredible too. We are right in the thick of things - walking distance to both downtown Santa Cruz and the beach boardwalk area. Our midpoint location keeps us just far enough away to not hear the delighted screams of the roller coaster riders but close enough to get to that roller coaster in less than ten minutes. We know there are a lot of choices for accommodations in Santa Cruz and we are so appreciative you chose us! We wish you could have stayed longer too. Please, visit us again soon! Warmly, Naomi, Ocean Pacific Lodge Thanks again! Warmly, Naomi, Ocean Pacific Lodge

Based on my own experience---I traveled a lot with three kids, each two years apart---it depends on the age of the children. If they're still relatively small, like preschool, I doubt if three kids sharing a single bed would be a problem. What hotels don't like is when guests try to sneak in more adults and teens than there are beds to a room. It's a violation of the fire code, which hotels are on the hook for if the guests are caught. That said, the Ocean Pacific Lodge is a family-run hotel; I'd talk to the manager if you have any doubts. Chances are they'll be flexible, but for older children they may insist you rent an extra folding bed.
