The hotel is pretty nice and clean. The front desk was nice and helpful. The family wanted to eat sushi and they recommended a couple that we ended up trying out. We stayed one night in the Junior suite with a King bed and sofa bed with whirlpool and balcony. The room was spacious enough for us. It had a... More

I spent 2 nights at this hotel while in town for a wedding. The bed was nice, the suite space was fine, though a little tight. The bathroom was good enough. The free wifi was surprisingly good for a hotel. I used the fitness room a couple of times. It was limited, but it did the trick. The breakfast area... More

So after my first option fell through in a bad way I was able to get 3 nights here. Clean, big rooms and the staff has been great. I work in tourism and would highly recommend this place to all travelers.

Enjoyed this all suite hotel while visiting for my son's graduation from UCSC. It's a newer property with very colorful and modern furnishings. The theme is oceanic. The Jellyfish lounge is a welcoming place after driving all day. The suite had a small but comfortable area with sofa, flat screen TV, desk, chair, Coffee table, etc. Internet wasn't working properly... More

Dear Chollita, Thank you for being our guest during the very busy U.C.S.C. Graduation weekend. Our internet service provider had severed a fiber optic cable that weekend which was less than fun in today's connected world.

Very nice hotel, but the staff really makes it special! Very friendly staff! It's in a very good location to walk just about anywhere. Parking is underground and very safe. Hard to beat this place! Would go back again!

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.

Dear Eric H Thank you for bringing your family to visit Capitola during your drive down the Pacific coast.
