Best Popovers!!

3.4 on February 28, 2015

Bed was super comfy! Fresh baked brownies on check-in was a nice surprise. We would have liked an in-room coffeemaker but it was super easy to go to the kitchen and get a delicious fresh brewed cup in my jammies. Great location and easy to find.


A hidden gem in a perfect location

This property is really beautiful and simply designed. The rooms were spacious and extremely comfortable… felt like a mini apartment oppose to a hotel room. When I arrived I was greeted by friendly and kind staff who were very helpful and made me feel instantly at home.The location couldn't be any better. You are walking distance to the beach/boardwalk/wharf and also walking distance to downtown restaurants/bars/shopping. I didn't indulge in breakfast but I am sure its amazing. I will definitely be back to the PCI soon! Cant say enough good things about this place.


Jovial oasis with character

We will be back!

My husband and I decided to take a last minute weekend trip to Santa Cruz. We wanted a Bed and Breakfast feel with the privacy of a hotel. The Pacific Blue Inn exceeded our expectations. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were clean and the breakfast was amazing! It is in walking distance to restaurants and bars downtown and about a 10 minute walk to the wharf. I cannot recommend the Pacific Blue Inn enough! Definitely spring for the breakfast package! You won't be disappointed.


Nice Getaway!

We needed a little escape from reality and this definitely was he right place to go to. The price was just about right for what we paid for(considering we're only college students). The rooms near the elevator have a little extra noise than the other rooms but nothing unbearable. Staff was really friendly and had our room ready a little after our check in time. Breakfast was definitely on point. Best bed and breakfast that I've had. This is already my second time staying here and I hope to return one day.


Wonderful place to stay!

5 on January 11, 2015

From the friendly greeting we received upon arrival, to the ultra-comfortable bed and lovely room, to the amazing freshly prepared breakfast, we can't say enough good things about this gem of a hotel. We walked to the beach, wharf, boardwalk, and downtown -- all easily accessible from our quiet, serene and elegant room. We will be back!


Our stay at the pacific blue inn

We enjoyed our stay very much. The breakfast was amazing, the room was comfortable and quiet and we could walk to the downtown area. We look forward to our next stay.


New Years Eve Getaway

5 on January 06, 2015

Perfect place to stay for NYE. We were close to downtown so we could easily walk back and forth during our celebration and from the rooms it was quiet enough that we couldnt hear any of the partying. The breakfast was incredible, some people on Yelp complained about having to set a reservation for breakfast but we didnt mind at all, so worth it. The beds were ridiculously comfortable and the fireplace was a great extea touch. I plan on staying here everytime I come to Santa Cruz


Quick Weekend in Santa Cruz

3.8 on December 29, 2014

We enjoyed our stay at the Inn. The room was clean and attractive, but I expected that for the price. We weren't disappointed. The staff was polite, cheerful and very helpful. The location of the Inn is within easy walking distance of downtown Santa Cruz and the beach. The breakfast was exceptional; one of the best we have had. A very nice weekend experience to which we would certainly return.


Great place to stay on the Central Coast

5 on December 25, 2014

My wife and I try to stay here whenever we are in the area visiting family. Parking is easy and easy to find. The staff is incredibly helpful and the rooms are excellent, much nicer than an upscale room in San Francisco and less money. Free wifi, cable tv, great beds. The locations in town is awesome: walking you are two minutes from downtown and ten minutes from the beach. We've never taken advantage of the bike rental, but we're always there in the winter and it's usually raining. One thing I will say: get the breakfast. It's easily one of the best in town. The brioche French toast was amazing, and the popover pastries are tasty. They even make an eggs benedict in the pastry, which is just incredible. Well worth it and a great way to start your day. Five stars all around.
