For a 2.5 star hotel, I was very happy with my stay. The room was clean, and the refrigerator was on and very cold when I arrived. I saw other reviews that complained that their room smelled like smoke. This hotel has some smoking rooms so be sure you request non-smoking if that is your preference.

We needed a nights halt, 5 of us and our 3 month old pet dog. The location was key for proximity to UC Santa Cruz. Ocean lodge was the only place available at a decent rate (in comparison) that allowed pets. Room was perfectly sized with 2 queens, clean, and good overall for what we needed. The manager even allowed a late checkout , which was cool. Thanks 🙏
