My sister and I stayed at the Pacific Blue Inn after the Memorial Day holiday. Great price for the room; location to downtown area shops, dining and the boardwalk were unbeatable. Friendly, unobtrusive staff...can't say enough about this place. Will definitely be back for more fun in the sun


big bang for buck

what a great find for Santa Cruz. I will be telling all my family and friends. They will love it too! Rooms were impeccable and neat as a pin. The breakfast was put of this world for taste and presentation. The courtyard was relaxing and totally comfortable for a relaxing stay. We will be back. Thank you.


One enjoyable night

Checked in and was met by a kind host, shown to a very clean and comfortable room (excellent king bed) and slept very well. Bathrooms are also large and well appointed.


Good location, short distance from downtown and beach.

We made last minute reservations so ended up with room 101 which is right by the courtyard ground floor, handicap accessible. Room was fine, but no air conditioning - had to leave windows open, then many very loud people returning to their rooms thru the night was not great to say the least. Great setting with the courtyard, awesome breakfast ( which we almost skipped but thankfully didn't !). Would likely be fine with a different room.


Funky with Good Location

Pacific Blue Inn is in a kind of industrial/commercial area, not your traditional B&B. The rooms looked like they might have been converted from offices, but they were very well done. The windows overlook a courtyard rather than any kind of outside view. Parking was good. Easy walk to beach/boardwalk in one direction and to downtown in the other direction. The breakfast was gourmet - hot popovers, frittatas, fresh fruit, even the French Toast was superb. Overall, I would stay there again.


Great place for a retreat!

This little hotel/inn/bed and breakfast was phenomenal! The rooms were very clean and bright. The breakfast was 5-star and made to order by their chef. The whole place was charming and very reasonably priced.


Don't skip the breakfast!

We stayed here for my birthday have a fabulous time! They greeted me and we're so nice to remember my birthday and even made me a chocolate cake :-) they allowed us to use their bikes and we took an amazing bike ride to Wilder Ranch. Britney's saw to our every need she was so cheerful and helpful and found us a terrific Mediterranean restaurant for dinner. Whatever you do do not skip the breakfast! Michael who is a professional chef, prepares the most wonderful breakfast! My husband had a Spanish omelette and I had their special spinach with hollandaise mushrooms in a pop over- unbelievably yummy!! They are doing something that no one else does. A very unique and wonderful experience. We will stay there again!
