This is a great place to stay w kids on a trip to Santa Cruz. It is clean, incredibly friendly service, large rooms and bathrooms, and it is quiet. Pleasure Point has a few restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance and you can walk down to watch the surfers. After long days at the beach and boardwalk, it was... More

We stayed here on a family trip to visit friends in nearby Aptos. Were a little concerned, as we have not always had the greatest experience at Fairfield. This one blows all the others away. It is well designed and very clean. We had upgraded to a suite, and there was great space to sit and talk as well as... More

I picked this for a 2-night getaway based on Tripadvisor reviews, and was pleased I did. It was a bit pricey ($220) but worth it. What we liked: * The hotel is new, well laid-out, and the rooms are spacious and comfortable.There's a great jellyfish chandelier in the downstairs lounge area. * The wi-fi worked well (hurrah!); * There was...

Hotel is new, clean, staff is nice. Everything was like it should be. The only one concern is that the hotel is pretty much far away from Santa Cruz city center and beach. On the other hand is much cheaper providing very good quality....

We did our best in finding a hotel in Capitola, near Santa Cruz, and ended up in Fairfield Inn in Capitola. This hotel you can recommand to everybody, it is very nice, clean and has very friendly staff. The walk from the hotel to the beach is a pleasant one, it take 1/2 hour that we liked doing. The beach... More

At long last, there is a Marriott brand in the Santa Cruz-Capitola area. I've stayed here twice over the last couple of years and it’s one of the nicest Fairfield Inns I’ve stayed in. True, it's a Fairfield Inn, but it looks nothing like a budget hotel. The architecture is grand and definitely unique with a huge glass jelly fish... More

We reserved a room at Fairfield Inn for an anniversary trip to Capitola. Originally we wanted something by the beach, but those places were either too pricey and/or looked outdated. I get Marriott points so I chose the Fairfield because there was a fireplace, a living room and a whirlpool tub for a reasonable rate so we were OK not... More

We we stayed here over the weekend the hotel was very nice and clean. The kids enjoy the heated pool and the breakfast in the morning was very good. We would definitely stay here again next time we're in this area.
