      • Older travelers

        The staff was very helpful and friendly. Good location close to Boardwalk and downtown. Nice indoor pool and spa.

        • Average rating
      • Couple

        The staff was nice. Price of rooms were cheap.

        The name of the hotel is not pure Pacific, it is Guesthouse Pacific, they are in the process of changing the name. The room we were in smelled bad and were stained pretty bad. The hotel is located in the ghetto, but since most of Santa Cruz is the ghetto that is not much of a surprise. We were rudely awoken at 7am by the lawn service.

      • Family with children

        I liked Alan, the gentleman behind the desk at check-in. The location was very good. We walked to the Boardwalk the first day although driving was easier for me, at my age (59). The heated pool was a plus that the grandchildren loved.

        The room was a little small and the frig was not cold enough.

        Ease of access to the airport

        Property is used as a long term stay by some which attracts some undesirables at all hours.

      • Older travelers

        we liked the staff and we really enjoyed the homemade breads that Allen made. They were so friendly and nice. They enjoyed serving us.

        It was pretty clean but they could clean the bathroom better. (Floors) The spa was dirty with mold around the filter system and yukky stuff floating.

        The surrounding neighbors are very scetchy! Not a safe feeling for two ladies traveling together.

        Close to the beach and Boardwalk. Easy access to main highway. Air conditioner worked well. Good parking lot. Refer and microwave in room. Nice pool.

        Refer made alot of noise. Bathroom was a litte rough looking. Neighbors in apartments next door were loud.

        Amazing breakfast (homemade bread!!); very friendly and attentive staff

        Initially non-smoking room we were put in smelled of smoke. Quickly fixed, however, as we were reassigned to a clean, nice room.

        We really enjoyed the jacuzzi bathtub. The hotel was well located with ample parking space.

        We only stayed a few hours (we had to leave at 4.30am to head south) so there is not much to complain about.

        Allan, the owner, is simply amazing. Meeting this man is already a good reason to go at this hotel. The breakfast is really really good and the pool looks pretty nice. Great atmosphere, great room, great location!

        Homemade bread for breakfast

        Needs a bit more upgrading and renovation

        The Pacific Inn was great! Very nice, clean rooms, good size. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends. Very close to the beach, good restaurants and shopping.

        Smelled like a smokers hideout

        • Average rating
      • Older travelers

        We were particularly impressed by the almost South American ambience of the hotel with its glazed red decor and 'galleried' feel of the pool. But most of all it was the welcome from the man on the front desk, Alan, which made us feel most at home. A splendid, economic stay within a stone's throw of the Santa Cruz beaches.
