Maybe the nicest Fairfield Inn that I have ever stayed at. And I am a Marriott Rewards member so I have stayed at quite a few. Everything seems very new and up to date. Very clean and sharp. Great secure parking garage. Great breakfast. Very comfortable.

Recently stayed 4 nights at the Fairfield Inn & Suites in Capitola By the Sea. This hotel is relatively new (maybe 2 yrs old) and very reasonably priced for the Capitola/Santa Cruz area. Our party of 3 adults stayed quite comfortably in a 2 bedroom queen suite. Altho the 2 room suite was not hugh, it had plently of room... More

This hotel is probably the best property experience I have had anywhere at any price. Checking in was great. The gal at the front desk couldn't be any better and suggested a room on the lower floor which I took her up on. You park underneath the hotel and it is secured with gates that open with you room key.... More

The new building and reasonable rates were a welcome feeling so near Santa Cruz. The front desk staff were friendly and went out of their way to make sure they could help you find things around the area. If we are ever back here again will stay here.

If you just want to get away, or even take a long vacation, this is the place to come! Free parking downstairs, free breakfast for you and the family, and a nice pool/recreation outlet for when you just want to be lazy and not go anywhere. Room 231 was so great! Parking is free and easy right downstairs, and you... More

We had a free night from our Marriott rewards and decided to get out of town. We only stayed 1 night but it was a very nice hotel. Our daughter loved the giant jelly hanging in the lobby. I loved the big room with a nice living space. We had a great night sleep, enjoyed the breakfast the next morning... More

My family of 5 were staying at a hotel within walking distance of Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. After staying one night, we did not like it so I searched and found this place for less. It's a short 5 minute drive from the boardwalk, but worth it. We were greeted by a friendly desk clerk. She said our room with... More

Welcomed warmly at front desk. Very helpful. Room very large and layout very homey. Very clean. Very good breakfast. If they just had softer sheets and thicker towels I would have given them five stars!

The service is good at the front desk, laundry room is clean but has opening and closing hours, rooms and bathroom are huge enough. Underground secure carpark for guests. Complimentary breakfast is nice to have.
