Nice hotel. More of an upscale Fairfield Inn then I am use to. Rooms spacious. The garage is underground which is nice, and included in the room price. They had a bar which I do not often see at Fairfield Inn. There are places you can walk to for dinner. Cute area. Would definitely stay again

I struggled to find a hotel in the Santa Cruz / Capitola area that had excellent reviews at a great value. This hotel definitely delivered on that. Staff was friendly and helpful, and we enjoyed the free breakfast, indoor parking, and exercise room. The room was a good size and clean. Security must be a concern, as the room key... More

Our stay was brief at the Fairfield Inn and Suites in Capitola, but it was an extremely quiet and comfortable one. Our room was nicely appointed and very clean. The whole property is well cared for, and the check in was easy. The parking garage is large and well lit and partially underground. There is an elevator from the parking... More

Views from the hotel were of local businesses so that wasn't too amazing. Underground parking which was nice and included in the room. Easy drive to local activities. Free breakfast and coffee early in the morning a big plus.

Nice quality hotel in a good location on the edge of Capitola. Only 5 minutes drive to the main connecting highways, 3 minutes from a large Mall and less than 10 minutes to the beachside village of Capitola. As you would hope from a Marriott group hotel all the facilities are of a high standard. Beds, pillows, shower and other... More

We have stayed here over New Years Eve and loved the location. Only few minutes to Capitola beach, can't beat that. We booked very nice spacious room. Front desk is very friendly. Definitely check out the Jellyfish bar lounge, great drinks for great prices. The bartender was awesome!

Fairfield Inn in Capitola offers comfortable and cosy suites in a central location. The suites are roomy and nicely furnished, the bathrooms are large with some bathtubs equipped with jets. The breakfast is modest but satisfactory, the exercise room has new cardio machines, with a pool and hot tub nearby. Excellent flatscreen TVs and wifi.

We stayed here on New Year's weekend while visiting the Santa Cruz area and we were very pleased. Our room was spacious and comfortable but, most of all, spotlessly clean. It was good to have a separate seating area with a sofa, chair, and second TV. Our six-year-old could watch his shows and we could watch ours. The room's climate... More
