Great location
Love the location of OPL. Appreciate the off season prices as we cannot afford to stay during the premium season!! The rooms are always comfortable and we love the amenities provided especially the make-up wipes and ear plugs!

Appropriate advice to get NYT in this tocal town!
Santa Cruz is a traditional local harbor town, which is not commercialized. The town is static and it's not easy to get NYT, for example. But the hotel agent appropriately and kindly suggested to me that I go to a bookstore and I made it. I very much appreciate her kindness.

4/10 Fair

Pillows were old and flat. Smelled like bleach when I entered the room. Can hear lots of noise of neighboring rooms. Hot tub chemicals were extreme. See photo of what it did to my bathing suit. Bathing suit was Royal Blue, like the straps. I showed at check out, but nothing but “sorry” was given to me.

Pool was not heated.
Would have been nice to have the pool HEATED! Thats one of the reasons I took my daughters to this hotel, but they wanted warm water, not cold.
