We were pleasantly surprised with what we thought was going to be a bit of a "cheap and cheerful" hotel. We packed earplugs because of the number of reviews that said the hotel was noisy. Fortunately, we were there in the off-season, which made it very peaceful, both at the hotel and in the town. (I can see where this... More

We have stayed here on many occasions over the years and find the hotel outstanding. We always get a room with an ocean view. Well stocked kitchens are in each unit. The staff is always helpful and friendly. A bit funky, but that is part of the charm. We love it. It right in the middle of the village. Close... More

I've always wanted to stay here because of its great location and cuteness of the hotel. So it's located in the heart of capitola on the beach which is great. You can walk to many great restaurants and shops. The hotel itself was pretty pricey and run down. And, the prices were really increased the week after Xmas. Also, all... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I'm sorry you were disappointed with the accommodations. Many of the rooms have different layouts; some with ocean views and balconies etc. If you look at the "rooms" link on our website perhaps you'd see something that you'd like better than the room you were in last time.

I adore this place. Whether I need me time or family time or a few days with friends. Great staff always. I have never been here and not had a great stay. They have redone rooms since I first started coming here. They are so pretty. Love having a kitchen. Coffee in the morning. I could go on forever. If... More

This is a vintage hotel on the beach. This is a quaint hotel. My favorite room is 125 as it is large. You can hear the ocean from your windows. The beds are comfortable and the hotel very clean. We stay in the winter as the rates are low and it's an enjoyable get away. It's close to great restaurants... More

Thanks for the great review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. You're right; Winter can be a great time to come as the rates are lower and the village isn't as crowded as in the Summer. It helps that the weather this year has been so nice. Hope to see you again soon. Regards, Duane More

We celebrated our daughter's marriage on January 1, 2015. We stayed here for two days in Room 123. It was clean and spacious. We had one of our grandchildren stay with us and it was roomy and yet cozy. The kitchen was well used during our stay as we were able to make breakfast for the families after New Year's... More

Wonderful location!! Loved the coziness of this hotel. It was a louder due to age of property but not enough to keep us from sleeping. Perfect location, nice little walk across a very cute bridge to all pubs and restaurants. Will definitely return!

We stayed in room 131 which was an ocean view that sleeps 5. It's on the upper level and right next to the parking lot - which was perfect for loading and unloading. The unit was bright and clean. The bedding, bathroom and towels etc. exceeded my expectations. You need to remember that this is an old hotel that's on... More
