Although this is a newer property, I was still struck at how clean everything was in all areas of the Hotel. Every person on staff that we had contact with was exceptional. Everyone greeted us with a smile and was helpful. Love the layout of the Jr. suite with a balcony. The bathroom was big with a large jacuzzi tub... More

We booked our room last minute over the Thanksgiving weekend. The location is perfect. Close to pleasure point, the hook, and the shopping in Capitola. We arrived late, and was greeted by the nicest and most hospitable front desk clerk! The customer service was outstanding!! Our room was clean and very comfortable! I will definitely stay here again!!

Dear VJCostello Thanksgiving weekend is always a busy time for our local families and for all those who seek a few memorable waves at Pleasure Point or The Hook. With the shopping mall of Capitola only one block away there are great deals to shop for too. Our friendly staff and clean comfortable rooms await your next visit. Happy Holidays!! More

We just finished our 6th or 7th stay at they small hotel in Capitola (Santa Cruz). Each stay has been as pleasant the first. The staff at this hotel are excellent... Helpful, friendly, and informative. The breakfast is good, plentiful and timely. The rooms are clean and well maintained and the security is excellent. I definitely recommend it.

Room was spotless check in was excellent. Enjoyed the gas fireplace in the room. Easy parking and convenient to everything I needed. Everything I needed and more than expected. I loved how the hotel was spread out so that any noise isn't going to bother anyone.

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

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!
