This property is pet friendly and there is no additional deposit required!

I was greeted immediately both upon arrival and check-out. Very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms were clean and large with comfortable beds. The pool looked nice but we didn't use it. Nice convenience store right across the street. We wouldn't hesitate to stay at the Ocean Pacific Lodge again. Great place!

very clean, easy access, close to boardwalk and beaches.

Was satisfactory.

It was nice that it was walking distance to the beach and shops. The price was reasonable but the room smelled bad, the towels were stained or dirty couldn’t tell which and there is no parking.

We were only there briefly for a night. Location was excellent, essentials were there, clean until we shifted the bed- the floor was pretty gross but I don’t think most people move the furniture so I’m no knocking that too much. Fair price, would stay again

Great room, great location. Clean and convenient. Nice parking.

Nice clean place to stay. Good location . Would stay again

The staff was exceedingly pleasant and accommodating. I was surprised at how quiet it was in that is situated between the parking lot and a well traveled street. Two blocks from the pier and three from the boardwalk/beach. The rooms are smallish but not uncomfortable for two people. Not much parking so don't bring a RV or trailer. A stray hair and bit of dirt in the bathroom but not dirty by any means. This would be a fun and accommodating place for a two or three day family vacation.

I give it a 3/5. The biggest plus was the location. Everything else was ok. I found a dead bedbug in my sheets and walls are paper thin and you’re able to hear just about everyone. The door didn’t seem too secure, it only has the door lock and not an extra lock at the top like most hotels do but I didn’t feel like someone was going to come in. I’d consider coming back but I wouldn’t run at the chance either.

This is a clean and well maintained property. Short walking distance to the wharf and boardwalk. There is a nice pool and 2 hot tubs.

Dear Guest, We love Pets! Truly, I can't think of one person who works here who doesn't like our pet guests. Sometimes the highlight of the day is petting a happy dog and giving her a treat. We have a list of dog friendly restaurants and beaches, dog bowls and dog beds available and of course, a treat... You are right, our location is fantastic and being able to walk to all the good stuff without encountering traffic, expensive paid lots and metered parking can make all the difference in the quality of a vacation. Ocean Pacific Lodge is committed to providing each of our valued guests with clean, comfortable, well appointed rooms and nice extras like a seasonally heated swimming pool, two outdoor hot tubs, laundry facilities, pet friendly rooms and our free parking! I'm so glad you will return for another visit! Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to review your visit! Warmly, Ocean Pacific Lodge

Thanks for taking the time to leave us feedback and your valuable business. All of us here work hard to make sure our guests feel comfortable and valued. This means we cover the basics; clean, comfortable well-appointed rooms and a warm, responsive staff but also offer nice little extras like a seasonally heated pool and hot tubs, laundry facilities and free parking!
