We really enjoyed our stay and loved the breakfast. The popovers were amazing and so was the rest!
Only stayed one night
Lovely bed and good cakes!
Really nice location near downtown Santa Cruz and an amazing breakfast
All staff was we'll informed about the area and what was going on each day. Breakfast was worth every penny! Having a nice place outside to sit and relax was great for a nice evening drink and conversation.
Separation between floors was thin and floors creaked.
Pacific Blue is such a wonderful place. Each evening they bake some delectable goodie for the guests and the outside meditation garden is sublime. Centrally located with outstanding staff!! A MUST for Santa Cruz visitors.
The Pacific Blue Inn has a lot of charm. The rooms are quite spacious and decorated with taste. The location is perfect. Easy access to either the ocean or downtown. We loved our short stay in Santa Cruz.
Peaceful location within walking distance to downtown and wharf.
Neighbors came in at 2:00 a.m. and you could hear everything.
Very clean, comfortable. Beds were amazingly comfortable. I like that the hotel lends u pedal bikes to use.
No one to see face to face checking in/out. The room was very humid, and the fireplace did not work.There also was no ocean view. It was farther from the beach than expected.
Lovely stay here, would highly recommend it. Lovely spacious room, modern and immaculately clean. Lovely welcome from excellent staff. Make sure to have breakfast here too.
Nothing. This place is perfect.
Location (not on the beach but 10 minute walk to the beach), free parking for guests, staff was really friendly, and the room and grounds were comfortable and beautiful.
The price of the hotel is too expensive. At least include breakfast in the rate.
The place is wonderfully peaceful with a little inner patio, a small fountain, very quiet. The rooms are perfectly decorated and make you feel at home.they have free bikes available which I find great. And I really liked the breakfast which was not the generic typical hotel breakfast. I had a great time!
If I have something to criticize (very little) it's about the organization of giving away the bikes. Two times I found myself waiting for a bike that was locked there ready to use, but for different reasons no one was there to actually give me the bike. Maybe making a list for the day would be beneficial. But this was just a small detail...I would come back to this inn!
Very attractive facilities, unlike most chain motels. Bed was very comfortable. Optional breakfast was delicious and I would have liked to be able to use the bikes but didn't have time. Very well positioned to get to beach or restaurants, etc.
Parking is a little tight, but it is free! If soundproofing of rooms could be improved a bit, that would be a plus, but it's really not that bad.
Having spent nearly two weeks in San Francisco and Santa Cruz, this has by far been the most satisfying lodging so far. A small and charming hotel with friendly hosts and great breakfast. A short walk in one direction is the beach, shops and restaurants in the other. Will definitely return here if we ever decide to visit California again. Highly recommended.
Nothing to dislike here.
We had such a great time here! Beautiful place. Very helpful and friendly staff. They even have 2 bikes (free). A bike tour in Santa Cruz is definitely a must-do!
Comfortable room, very clean and nicely decorated, incl fireplace and bigscrren tv. Staff is very friendly. Breakfast is the best, start with fresh fruit and nice pop-overs and then you can pick one of the delicious things on the menu. So good! Situated on Pacific Avenue, close to the wharf and boardwalk. It's also the mainstreet with restaurants (Try "the Assembly") and shops.
Bed is very comfortable but also quiet soft, bit too soft for me.
Very lovely place, located conveniently from Santa Cruz downtown and not too far from the beach either. Offers complementary bikes to discover the cities, parking included. Very friendly and helpful staff.
Lovely clean property with a tranquil and calming feel about it and its eco-credentials show through. Staff very friendly and shared tips for our ongoing journey. Rooms are a good size as are the bathrooms wand the bedsheets were high standard with a comfy bed. There is tea and coffee available at the Front Desk and we came back from a walk to find a lovely bit of cake too! Great access to Santa Cruz pier and beach which are 10 minutes in one direction and only 5 mins to the downtown Santa Cruz high street area.
Staff are not permanently on site, so check in time is between a certain time - although you do have a cell phone number for the duty manager.
Comfort of bed, free biking, music, quaintness, cleanliness
Cost of breakfast
It's a cousy place, very calm, close to down town (with many restaurants, shops etc) and the boardwalk of Santa Cruz and the wharf, also a supermarket is almost at the next door, the rooms are big and very comfortable, the bath is wonderful, everything is made with passion, the staff is very friendly and very helpful, parking space is close behind the hotel. Definitely a recommendation, also for several days.
It's not a big deal but important to know, the reception is only open from 3-5 pm, so if you arrive later, then you'll get your key cards from a box. Also there is a "homeless" spot close to the parking space (over the street) but it's really not disturbing. We weren't never felt unsafe. So don't care about this, it's just to know when you arrive the first time. The breakfast unfortunately wasn't included. It was really nice made with a lot of passion, but unfortunately not our taste.
Extremely comfortable, very central location, nice quiet garden, quiet rooms. The beds were unusually comfortable. I rated the staff as "good" only because we saw very little of them (which was entirely by design... so they may well have been "excellent" we just didn't interact that much).
No knock on the hotel, but Santa Cruz has a lot of street life. That end of Pacific sees more of it than, say, something less centrally located. You keep your eyes open a little more when walking around at night.
cleanliness, bathroom, proximity to beach and downtown
Staff isn't around much; if you arrive after 5:00 you see no one.
The on site manager was superb
water pressure in the shower
