What LP says: Ideally sited at the north end of Monterey Bay, Santa Cruz (SC) has marched to its own beat since long before the beat generation. In the 1970s a local newspaper published a do-it-yourself artificial-insemination guide for the large local lesbian community (first buy a turkey-baster…) and for many years the mayor was neither …

Day 16 Carmel to Santa Cruz

We had our latest lie in of the holiday, up at 9am. We had our waffle breakfast, checked out and packed the case in the car. We went for a walk round Carmel and Catriona bought a Dragonfly she had seen in a shop. We departed Carmel about 1030 and took the route via the 17 Mile Drive. The cost to drive it was $9.25 which you pay at the gate entering …

... so she can make a difference for her town and people. One of the leaders of the school played a song for all of us on his instrument and we got to hear from the founders who had just retired from a 10 year stretch. I met a few fun people that night and headed back home to hang out with the flat mates. I am so thankful to this beautiful couple for inviting me (someone they only knew from a mutual friend) into their home and letting me stay there while my house and truck were ...

Picnic at the Oakland Zoo

... wade into the crowds and get what you need.

I had to sneak up on Max to get him to laugh. He is such a busy young fella!

After the zoo, we left Oakland and went to Concord to visit the Collins. It was so good to talk to Mrs. Collins. Mr. Collins showed me his garden and we talked flowers until Jane and Clare insisted we watch them dance, without their new dog, Tinker.

Race on to get a campsite Set up new camp at Veterans Memorial Park

We had wanted to get to Veteran's Memorial in a timely manner because you cannot make reservations and we wanted to make sure we found a campsite. But then, there is all that beautiful scenery you pass through on the way that you must stop and take pictures of. So that is what we did and still ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Ocean Pacific Lodge Santa Cruz

    One to avoid

    from

    Noisy, dirty, stained ceiling, broken flush on toilet - this is one to avoid. We stayed in 11 hotels on our recent trip to the US, having done our research on trip advisor and this was the only one that disappointed us.

    Not well tended

    from

    Rooms aren't clean; stains on the ceiling, dark and dank, kids enjoyed the pool and breakfast. Needs a face lift.

    Used to a great place to stay, property now seems neglected

    from

    This was our second visit. First visit was perfect. The property now just seems tired and neglected. Of course, location is great, pool was loved by kids. The entire facility just needs a good cleaning and the lino in bathrooms needs to be fixed. I agree with a fellow reviewer about the beds and pillows. However, I do like hard mattresses, so that didn't bother me - but know they are hard. As for the pillows, bring your own if you are particular as the room pillows are very, very flat.

    Staff was pleasant and helpful. Breakfast is adequate enough to start the day.

    We will probably look at other facilities before staying at OPL again. Hopefully these reviews will encourage them to make a few little improvements.

    Won't go back

    from

    Are you people freakin' kidding??!! Based on your positive reviews, my sister, niece and I booked a room at the Ocean Pacific for this past weekend. Besides the good location, the room was sub-standard, especially for the $150.00 rate we paid. I could give you a long list of things we found grotesque, but suffice it to say, we played "name that stain" before we got up the nerve to get into bed. For the money, I imagine you could do better.

    Very bad in many ways

    from

    The place really has the feeling that it's falling apart and the owners don't care.

    Loved the Ocean Pacific Lodge

    from

    The Ocean Pacific Lodge is terrific. Very reasonable, basic but nice accomodations, great location, terrific for children. I highly recommend it.

    If you cant handle hard beds better not stay here

    from

    I wasnt sure about this hotel but based upon the reviews I decided to stay there....We were there this past weekend...Oct. 17-19....I have to say this a great location only being 2 blocks from the boardwalk. The staff was very friendly and the property clean...Although I didnt eat there I did get coffee the first morning and they had cereal, danish, cinnamon rolls, coffee, orange and apple juice and some kind of icee raspberry drink....very nice....the problem with this hotel is the beds are ROCK HARD!!!! and Im not exaggerating...my back is still hurting from those beds...My friend also complained about it and luckily they had enough extra pillows for my friend to be able to lay them out across the bed and put a down comforter blanket she brought which helped her sleep but did nothing for me...The person at the front desk told me that they recently purchased new mattresses and box springs and all of the beds are like that. Also, the pillows were awful. It took 3 of their pillows to match 1 of mine...The best thing that happened is we started out having to pay $99 per night down to $81 and it ended up being $55 per night...how that happened I dont know but I guess it has something to do with the timing I originally booked the room...Even though the price was great and it gave continental breakfast I just dont think I would stay there again specifically because of the hardness of the beds...I came home last night and slept like a log because of lack of sleep all weekend....However, if you can handle hard beds go for it...

    OP is it!

    from

    You can't beat the Ocean Pacific Lodge motel for price and proximity to the wharf in Santa Cruz. Be sure to book ahead, as it is often full on weekends. The staff are pleasant and helpful and the rooms are clean.

    A Great Location!

    from

    We really enjoyed our stay. Found the room to be neat, clean and attractive. Service was courteous and helpful. So nice to have a place only two blocks from the wharf in a nice part of town. We will recommend it to our friends. Also enjoyed all of the amenities (fridge, microwave, pool and spa.) Thank you for a lovely holiday.

    Look no further, the Ocean Pacific Lodge is the place.

    from

    We were extremely happy we chose the Ocean Pacific Lodge. It is in a very convenient location, close to the wharf and boardwalk.

    It is not fancy. Bring your own iron or hair dryer. They are not available in the rooms, but you can check it out from the front desk if you do not bring one.

    The staff was very nice.

    they have vcr and microwave so you can bring microwave popcorn and your own vcr tapes if you would like.
