We wanted to bring our dog with us, so we booked one of the cottages(only the cottages except dogs).The hotel is very quaint and very quiet.The cottage we had has a yard for the dog and for sitting out in the sun or for morning coffee.It comes with a kitchen,which was...

This place is a real jewel that we had never heard of. We got a good deal through Travel Zoo and decided to go for two nights to celebrate a big birthday for me. When we arrived, we were told our room had accidentally been given to someone else so they would upgrade us. Can't remember the name of the... More

I decided to take a trip to Santa Cruz with my boyfriend and best friend and since we're on a budget we wanted to share a room in a motel (since that's all we could really afford). So I had compared motels and inns on different websites and the ones that cost about $150 for one room had absolutely horrible... More

This Inn is a wonderful sleeper, no pun intended! The room was generous in size, the bed comfortable, the grounds well manicured, the views nothing less then spectacular. This is an old property, nicely refurbished, without being stripped of its majestic past. The location is out of the bustle of main street, but within walking distance.

Never been to Capitola. Monarch Inn had the breathless view I'd hoped for. Beautiful building, delicious breakfast served in the room and lovely cliff side walk down to the village. Suggest paying a higher rate for room with a view.

My husband and I stayed second time in this Inn and we are going to stay there in a near future again. We just loved it! It is a gorgeous Victorian historical gem in Capitola located among palms, eucalyptuses and facing the ocean. The air is so healing and fresh. There is a beautiful flower garden with gorgeous dahlias, lots... More

Amazing views, grounds, setting, helpers, and breakfast brought right to your room every morning set in a quiet neighborhood of Capitola. Beware though, we booked ourselves in a stand alone building that happened to be dog friendly and it was immediately noticeable to our noses, smell was so strong that we complained and they moved us to another room immediately....

Adorable family owned place in the best location! Serene and beautiful, out of the busyness of the little town, yet just a short walk away. Romantic and vintage feel. Views of the garden setting or the sea below the cliff it sits on. In a residential neighborhood.

Beautiful inn right on the ocean. Great host and nice continental breakfast served to your room. We will return. The grounds are beautiful. This would be a beautiful place to have your wedding. The weather was fantastic.

The view of the ocean from our bay window or porch was fantastic. The grounds are beautiful and constantly being maintained. The breakfast was good and more food than we had expected. The hotel is somewhat of a hike from town up and down steep steps, but a two minute drive. We will definitely stay here again. Ocean view room... More
