We plan on returning

We didn't have time for breakfast, wish I did because the food smelt very good. However the lemon bars that were made, we're very tasty.

Not your average motel by a long shot!

I had a brief but lovely stay at the Pacific Blue Inn. The check-in process was facilitated since I got stuck in traffic getting to Santa Cruz. I had been in a car accident a few days before and they were nice about extending a late check-out hour for me. The room I stayed in was a handicapped room, which usually is a bit depressing, but in this case, it was only minimally obvious. The bed was super comfortable with a great quilt and decor was very pleasing. The fire place heater was wonderful, attractive and effective. I never felt like I was in a corporate or creepy motel. The bathroom was modern and water pressure, etc. was awesome. Free wifi was fast. I would stay here again any time I get to Santa Cruz. I didn't eat there, but it looked great.

Perfect B&B for a Santa Cruz getaway

Nice, clean rooms with modern bathroom and decor. Matress on the bed was over-soft but that's just my taste. Didn't bother paying the extra for breakfast, but that's just because I knew we wouldn't wake up early enough. Only interaction with staff was very helpful and pleasent.

Awesome staff. Everyone friendly and happy!!

Ladies weekend!

Usually B&B's are on the romantic side and meant for couples, but I loved the look of this place so much that I went ahead and booked it for a dear friend and I to have a weekend away from the husbands and kiddos. Pacific Blue did not disappoint. The hotel itself was very charming and quaint; we loved the communal outside sitting area with fire pit for those chilly evenings. Elise, whom I am assuming was the manager, was one of the nicest people I've come across in a while. She was not only friendly, but forthcoming with things to do and see. She gave us maps for our bike ride and hike and told us about local wineries and eateries. I have nothing but great things to say about the hotel and staff. OH, and breakfast!! WOW! Start with a cup of coffee, then fresh fruit, homemade popovers and fresh omelets. Both my girlfriend and I couldn't say a bad thing. I will definitely stay again when my hubby and I decide to get away from the kids for a romantic weekend.
