This is a charming inn set on a cliff overlooking the ocean. There is a great walking path along cliff that leads into town. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We appreciated being able to checkout late due to an unexpected visit from our son. The breakfast was very good and ample, and best of all, personally delivered to... More

My wife and I love staying in the Hideaway suite. It feels like our own little piece of paradise. Breakfast delivered to our door is extra special. Short, beautiful walk to downtown Capitola. We will be back soon for another visit.

Wonderful two night getaway in Capitola. Easy walk into town and the beach. Rooms were lovely and provided a great view of the ocean. Staff was amazing with a personal walk thru of the grounds and providing a continental breakfast. Great getaway!

My husband and I returned from the Monarch Cove Inn over a week ago and we're still smiling. We stayed in the Rose Garden Suite and absolutely loved it. The suite offered a bedroom, a kitchen and a lovely sitting room with a great couch, fireplace and a small table that overlooked the grounds and ocean. The fireplace is electric... More

Highly recommend the Monarch Cove Inn after a recent stay. The Lilac Room was wonderful and has a breathtaking view of the ocean. Enjoyed coffee on the deck outside the room with an ocean view The gardens are also beautiful. Breakfast was delivered to the room and was very good. Capitola is a wonderful beach town.

Peaceful and secluded. Beautiful grounds, adorable rooms. Morning breakfast delivery a nice touch. Loved this place. Looking forward to a return visit. Easy to find, excellent access to beach and the surrounding area. Only minus is no staff on property after 6 pm.

Really enjoyed our stay at Monarch Cover Inn. Staff were super and room was above expectations. Capitola is a great place to vacation and stay - beach very close down the hill with good restaurants/music and Gayle's bakery around the corner. Would highly recommend for anyone wanting an exceptional beach experience.

We found this place via Living Social and visited in March. Stayed in the lilac room and totally enjoyed ourselves so when we saw the Travelzoo offer which included a voucher for $25 at the Shadowbrook and transportation to and from in their antique car we couldn't wait! This time we had the Victorian room. Much larger with a beautiful... More

We attended a wedding there and it was a beautiful setting. However, we were underwhelmed with the beds (way too soft) and the continental breakfast. The furnishings were outdated and we were disappointed with the value for what we paid.
