    The bed was wonderful! And so was the breakfast.

    Construction noise from the Warriors arena being built a block over. Also the shutters didn't block out as much light as I'd have liked. (Solution: earplugs and eye mask.)

    We spent three weeks touring around the USA. This was by far the best place we stayed. The little touches like the free bikes, the library. At first I did not know what the reviews I had read were saying it was so, but then as soon as you were there it just got better and better. I love the fact it is wheelchair friendly (I don't have a disability, but it is great to see hotels having reall rooms that cater for that need and don't look like something out of care setting). I loved the fact the bathroom products were of a quality that I didn't have to use my own. In every other hotel I used my own products as I was afraid they would give me an irritation. The most amazing thing was the breakfast. Anyone staying really has to have the breakfast, it is one of the best I have had any where in the world. It is simple, but delicious. Don't be put off by them asking what time you are going to have breakfast, as it is just to help them bake it fresh.

    Santa Cruz is a grimmy kind of city, it is a little off beat, which I loved, if you want it to be Carmel it isn't going to be that type of town. I found great restaurants and bars and an amazing beach.

    Very clean. The staff were friendly and very helpful (they shared their thoughts on things we should see in the area and along the coast as tourists). And the breakfast was a complete treat - the popovers and the egg dish (Florentine Popover) were fantastic!

    Very friendly staff!! Clean room, comfortable bed and location were all great. It came with breakfast and parking which made the rate well worth it. I would definately recommend this place.

    We received a warm welcome from Elise. The room was lovely & we enjoyed relaxing in the courtyard. The location was excellent & the room luxurious. The breakfast was very, very good.

    Nothing, it's in a perfect spot & a real boutique hotel.

    Location, breakfast,wooden floors, cool bathrooms, clean lines.

    The internet and tv didn't work at first and staff was somewhat reluctant to help out but eventually did (it was late at night) Seems a bit overpriced for the size of the room.

    We enjoyed the staff. When we first checked in, there was one person in the front area and he asked if he could help us get our luggage out of the truck and into the room. The waitress in the morning was very friendly and helpful. She made the morning experience special. The chef made the most wonderful pop-overs! Everything about the breakfast was perfect including the coffee which was the best I've had in many years. I would come back in a heartbeat!

    Without a doubt, PBI had the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in in my life! I didn't want to get up in the morning, but I did and am glad I did because I was able to enjoy the amazing breakfast! I have already recommended PBI to several friends as a wonderful getaway spot. I definitely want to return and take advantage of the complimentary bicycles next time! Oh! And the fresh-baked goodies each afternoon were delicious!

    Not a thing!

    Our trip to Santa Cruz staying at Pacific Blue Inn was a "girls getaway" for myself and my daughter (18yrs & going off to college) and we couldn't have choosen a better place. Great location for shopping, beaches and eats! Room was modern decor, clean and comfy cozy! The staff was super helpful and the morning breakfast was fantastic ! We even found ourselves loving the afternoon snacks of freshly baked goodies. So glad we discovered this place, definately will return to the Pacific Blue Inn.

    The staff were so friendly and knowledgeable about the B&B, we thought they were the owners. Everyone had an ownership mentality and were never too busy to answer questions about the area in general or the hotel itself. The bed is the most comfortable bed I have ever stayed at in any hotel. Will plan to stay here again for any future trips to Santa Cruz.

    Liked your commitment to the environment and bamboo floors

    Price was excessive.

    Near downtown Santa Cruz, near the wharf but not right in the midst of tourist central. Nice amenities, Great cookies and teas. Quiet, comfortable.

    A little on the pricey side

    Great location and great staff.

    Would have been nice to have a rug or something to warm the feet. Not exactly sound proof walls, but really enjoy the space!
