Its a GREAT place to visit. New and gorgeous. Love the rooms love the pool and stayed there multiple times over the last 3 years too. The pool and spa are outside and its very convenient to everything you need. The parking is a but small but other than for that its a great place to stay all together.

Our family of 4 stayed here one night while traveling up the coast. This hotel is very nice, new, clean, spacious with friendly employees who are helpful.

We enjoyed our one night stay with our family on our drive down the coast. The rooms are a good size and can handle a family of 5. Everything is very new and clean. It is a few blocks walk over to the beach a pier. You might want to drive if carrying a lot of beach stuff, but it... More

Dear Eric H Thank you for bringing your family to visit Capitola during your drive down the Pacific coast. I agree that one can easily walk to a beach from our hotel, but when bringing all that a family needs the use of a car allows for more options and locations. We hope to see you again!

Our family stayed here one night during a family vacation. It is everything you would expect from a good, newer Fairfield location: modern design, clean, helpful staff, decent breakfast buffet. It was a little bit from Santa Cruz, but not really a far drive.

I am a faithful Marriott customer. As a business traveler, I find myself staying a minimum of 50 nights a year in a Marriott property. This is the first time in nearly 400 nights that I felt compelled to write a review like this. The Fairfield Inn and Suites in Capitola is a beautiful facility, but charged me $270 for... More

I chose to stay at the Fairfield Inn for the second time this summer because of the gracious, friendly and professional service, as well as for the spacious, clean rooms. My first trip was seamless.

Of Marriott's many variants, this was our first time at a Fairfield Marriott Inn. All good. Clean and spacious sleeping room with separate parlor. Mini fridge and microwave for the practical or reclusive. Full delicious breakfast with many choices 6:30-10. Only the Lack of Ocean View kept from 5-stars. But heathy walking distance to shops and the Capitola beach and... More
