A few days of nice weather at the end of January called us to Capitola for a short getaway. This was our fifth stay at the Inn at Depot Hill, and it was as nice as all the others have been. It's a beautiful place. All the rooms have great character, it's spotlessly clean, and it's a five-minute walk down... More

Booked a two nite stay right before Christmas. Stayed here many times before, had the usual high expectations. Wrong! Had no problem paying for the two nite stay a month in advance, as we had always had a great stay here. Arrived at the hotel with a receipt for "payment in full" (it said that right on the receipt). Were... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I deeply regret that your stay fell so far from expectations and I apologize that I haven’t been able to contact you before now. We failed to communicate clearly at several points that led to frustration. I want to take just a moment to clarify a few points of concern.... More

My husband and I stayed at the Inn at Depot Hill on our road trip over New Years. We stayed in the "Paris" room. The decor was divine and even my manly husband didn't mind the French details. The fireplace in the middle of the room makes the accommodation cozy and creates a natural barrier between the bed area and... More

We could not have asked for a more beautiful, clean, and very friendly location to spend a few days after Thanksgiving to relax and visit with friends. Everyone there did all they could to make our stay more than pleasant. I have been to many, many places and the only place which comes close to this one, excluding pricing, is... More

Hotel was unwilling to accommodate a cancellation or date change when wife and i became ill two days prior to arriving. We were looking forward to staying at this highly recommended hotel but now we'd stay ANYWHERE but this hotel. We were willing to change the date because we were too sick to travel that weekend but they would not... More

Had a nice stay. The hotel is very cute and quaint... But the bed was horrible. It was very saggy on both sides. I even had to put a pillow under the mattress cover my side just to try to make it level. I'm not a big tv person, but the tv was the type you would find in an... More

Each room at the Inn is decorated differently and has a theme. Our first two nights were in the Capitola Beach Room. Loved the comfy bed and tranquil ambiance of the room colours. The last night we moved to the Cote d' Azur Room. The location of the Inn at Depot Hill is perfect to explore downtown Capitola. Breakfasts were... More

We were taken there by our good friends. They were taking us to celebrate my wifes birthday. The rooms were very nice and clean as well as the grounds. It was nice that an effort was made to put our rooms next to each other. The staff was very cordial. My wife left a necklace that was just given to... More

The front desk staff was wonderful (Lauren). I was participating in a duathlon in Capitola and she was so helpful offering a special breakfast early before the race, and congratulated me after the race with a bottle of wine! The location of the inn was perfect, and I enjoyed walking through Capitola village and its wonderful shops and restaurants.
