Two things are important when staying at a bed and breakfast: the bed and the breakfast. Both were fantastic. I slept like a baby in the very comfortable bed in the Victorian Room and a delicious continental breakfast was served TO me on my semi-private porch with a stunning view. The next day when it rained, I was able to... More

This was my second time staying at this property. The location is amazing, just a short 10 min. walk to Capitola Village. The rooms are cozy and the breakfast is pretty standard. The one complaint I have is that the bathrooms are freezing and there isn't a heater in them.

I have stayed here once before in the ocean view room. This time we had a dog and another person so we stayed in the carriage house. This is a wonderful place, very big with two full bedrooms, large bath and kitchen and living area. You even have your own large hot tub. The beds were wonderful and the service... More

The Monarch Cove Inn is one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. The room was gorgeous and the view of the Monterrey Bay was breathtaking. I have family in Santa Cruz, and every time I visit them, I will be staying @ Monarch!

This was a return to MC after 10 years away. It has improved in many ways: rooms are updated, grounds are lovely. On the down side, it is surrounded by some seedy looking buildings, which are no longer part of MC. We went as a group of 6 women and rented 1 cottage and 2 Suites. The Suites are really... More

This place is a hidden gem. Only available off season, we make a point of getting in there each year. Enjoy the ocean view from your room. Enjoy the great continental breakfast brought each morning. Enjoy Capitola for dinner and walking the nearby beaches. We enjoyed Monterey Dunes beach this time.

The Monarch Cove inn is truly a hidden gem. Off the main beat and path, located in a residential area. It's a very short walk into the Capitola Village. I was able to take advantage of their winter rates, and fortunately, the weather was perfect! The staff is very accommodating, and honestly, the breakfast was THE BEST I've ever gotten... More

I love Monarch Cove! Everything about it is perfect. The location, the staff, the scenery, the history, the cleanliness, the views. I love that it is walking distance from two different beaches, as well as the town of Capitola. The staff makes sure your stay is an absolute delight. I had my wedding here, as well as many stays, and... More

We stayed in the Ocean Mist suite. The views and staff were wonderful. It was very close walking distance to Capitola Village. The bed was extremely comfortable, I'd definitely stay there again, with just my wife, or the whole family!
