    Very good

    The location was very good, close to centre and also the boardwalk

    The room was rather cramped and the wash basin was in the main room, not even a separated area.

    The breakfast wasn't at any level of expectation. I had to leave the lodge in order of getting breakfast, that is why I chose this hotel...

    Very little..... almost nothing. Check in guy friendly/informative. Room cramped and almost no real space amenities.....not even room to lay our suitcases down flat because with not enough shelves or drawers to we needed to live out of our suitcases and had to "dodge" the suitcases to even go to bathroom. No desk to accomplish minor business decisions on Computer....had to do it from bed. No real mirror for comfortable dressing. Area felt very honky-tonk; classless. Everything nearby was "carnival like". City very enjoyable.....great vibe; lovely lunch. Rude checkout girl. Had asked for late checkout as we checked in late and needed a little extra time. She harassed us to leave or else an extra charge. Parking was ridiculous with spaces big enough for a Mini Cooper; not an SUV. Difficulty entering and leaving car for fear of hitting car next to us. Would never recommend Ocean Pacific Lodge to anyone looking for a lovely place on their California journey. Price was ridiculous for what we received. Now staying in Carmel at half the price with a sitting room; fireplace; amazing staff and owner. Breakfast delivered to room every morning.....not to mention amazing sites and views. Restaurants fabulous. Take a tip!

    The rooms were clean..the spreads were white! The breakfast was plentiful and good. The pool and spa area was private and had nice foliage and ambiance.

    The walls were very thin. You could hear the guests in the rooms around you.

    All the staff--from the front desk to the maids were all very friendly. We had all the comforts of a big chain hotel with the friendliness of a small bed and breakfast. Couldn't beat the location either as we were there for the triathlon that weekend. If we come back for the triathlon again, we will definitely rebook here.

    Very friendly front desk person upon arrival. Adequate dog walking area(with pick-up bags) and very good location to the cliff's (surfer area) and boardwalk. I liked they use the "double sheet" method! Makes me feel much better about "germs!" Thanks.

    The Beach!! Hotel is walking distance to the warf and beach, with a great historical Taco stand on the way! The staff was wonderful.

    Outside landscaping, parking area landscaping. The waffle irons needed to be replaced, as they no longer heated up the waffles on the inside.

    We were very pleased with the helpful staff and friendly staff, comfort of the room and convenience for our needs in the area. Also, it is a very good value, especially considering the generous breakfast that's included.

    The plumbing fixtures were a bit tricky, especially faucets in the bathroom and hall sink. Given the great efforts in water conservation in the area, perhaps they should be updated.

    Superb

    As our room was not ready when we arrived in the afternoon they upgraded us to a Suite which was of course great. The location of the hotel is perfect very near to the wharf, the beach and also the city center.

    As the hotel is still under renovation there was painting going on. However that was not was us much disturbed the worst thing was that the internet was very slow. skype can not work properly as there are many interruptions. They normally have an option to buy faster internet but this was not available due to the renovation. As we came back at our second evening the room was not cleaned yet (around 4 pm) so we asked for it. They told us something like they are cleaning first the check- outs and them the others.

    The rooms were great, perfect size for my friend and I. The location was great as well.

    I had an experience with a very rude staff member. My friend was trying to get water from the vending machine which ate her money and wouldn't give it back. A man walked down and said "do you have a place to stay tonight" and we replied with yes. He then said "do you want to keep it that way because I will kick you out". When I asked why he said we were too loud. It was completely unnecessary for him to say that. All he had to do was ask us to keep it down, not threaten to kick us out. It definitely ruined my experience.

    The location was great, walking distance to everything. Our room was recently renovated and was excellent. The continental breakfast room was also recently renovated. Both the food and dinning area were great. Staff was very friendly.

    Good location, friendly staff, prompt service w/questions about services, etc.

    Noon check-out would be more vacationer-friendly than 11am

    Superb

    Locaton, I stayed there 18 years ago and enjoyed it. Family lives near by.We liked looking out at the pool area.

    We stayed for 5 nights. The cost of the room was fine, but the $30 a day charge for our cat was outrageous!! Cats are clean. We had his litter box. He is declawed, so he couldn't shred the bedding, and he just sleeps most of the day and doesn't bark!!!.......so I don't understand that charge!

    Thought it was in a great location. Staff was friendly. Could not hear my neighbors....always nice when needing to sleep.

    Our sink clogged pretty badly.
