An amazing B&B. We arrived very early for check in and were told that our room wouldn't be read till around 2pm. We were given our room keys, a parking spot and recommendations on where we could go until then. When we came back after going to the beach, we were surprised to see how stylish and beautiful the room...

The frontage disguises the lovely features of the interior of this small hotel not far from the beach and the town. Good use of space means there's not only a courtyard with a small burner for heat but also small spaces for tables/chairs outside each door which overlooks this internal courtyard. All well-decorated and calming. Our room had no view...

This was an awesome Bed & breakfast and both were great. The owners put their hands on everywhere from the clean rooms to them cooking the breakfast (which was awesome). I think the bed was the most comfortable bed that I have ever slept in( if you like stiff beds these beds might not be right for you), you will...

We loved our stay and would go back again. The room we were given was on the third floor and removed from most of the other eight rooms. A clean and quiet B&B with a warm and generous owner/staff. As others have said the breakfast is a value on it's own and would cost $ 12.00 to $15.00 per person...

It has been a while since I stayed here but while on trip adviser I remembered how great it was and wanted to review. If you are going to Santa Cruz, stay here! The location is great, you are slightly removed from the boardwalk, beach and town but still walking distance and the inn itself is lovely. Free parking out...

Very good atmosphere of the hotel, professional and friendly staff, very familiar. Very clean bathrooms and rooms. Special bed, the best! Breakfast fantastic. Internet...

We had less than 24 hrs to spend in Santa Cruz and I was looking for a decent place with a reasonable rate from where I could walk to downtown and the beach (two main attractions when it's a crash course visit) and skip looking for parking spots all the time. Pacific Blue Inn caught my eye when I was...

This property surprised us (my husband and I). It looked like a small apartment or condo unit from the outside, and was not near other hotels. It is a newly remodeled and updated 3-story complex with about 25 rooms. We had a room on the 3rd floor, as I wanted the best view. Here are the essentials: Location: 3 blocks...

My wife and I stayed here in early January 2012. Although the staff is only here for a few hours a day (3-5 pm, and in the morning), there was no problem with our early check-in. The room was comfortable and quiet, and the bed was luxurious. We were within walking distance of downtown and some great restaurants. I'd recommend...
