Nice little place for a short stay. This hotel is near the beach, boardwalk, and other attractions. I have stayed here off and on for several years. And I will probably return for business, recreation, etc.

We were looking for a hotel last-minute in Santa Cruz but it was the weekend of the Wharf to Wharf race and everything was booked. So we started looking in Capitola and this was one of the options. The lobby was well kept and nice. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. The location was somewhat close to the Capitola... More

Unexpectedly surprised by the Quality of our accommodations. We enjoyed the fireplace, flat screen tvs, jacuzzi tub, walk-in double shower and the excellent location. Very easy drive down to the beachside restaurants and shops. Our accommodations made us feel right at home and we quickly forgot about the main reason we headed up to Santa Cruz, to enjoy a couple...

For a chain suites hotel, this one is a cut above. Clean, comfortable, nice staff and great location. We enjoyed local restaurants and the walk into Capitola Village was an easy one. With so few options in Capitola, this property stands out.

I don't typically stay in Fairfield Inn but the pictures looked nice. I was VERY impressed. Pulling up it looked much higher end. Staff was great. Pool & Hot tub were nice as well as the gym.

My expectation were low prior to my arrival. I was very wrong. It's a nice place to stay with suite type rooms and breakfast included in your rate. A friendly staff that makes you feel very welcome and helpful with local advice. A short distance from busy Santa Cruz near the sea side town of Capitola . This little town... More
