For a couple years now my wife and I have been going down to Capitola and we've been looking across from Margaritaville at the Venetian. So I went ahead and booked a weekend through the internet after looking at the rooms and everything. We had booked originally booked room for myself, my wife, and her best friend. But my mother...

Why "Finally"? Well, I have been wanting to stay in Capitola Village for a long time. I have really wanted to stay at the Venetian Hotel. We had a wonderful 2 and half days here. The room we stayed in wasn't just a room, more like rooms. This is an old hotel, 1920's. The units were originally condominiums. Some of... More

The wife and I have stayed here over the years. 30 years ago it was much cheaper (and pretty funky). These days there is a price to pay but there have been many nice upgrades. The kitchenette and living area separate from the bedroom allowing for great family lodging...tho it was just the two of us this time. The surf... More

Capitola Venetian Hotel is a great place to stay. We were a family of 4 adults and a child. Kitchen was nice except should have had a larger table to eat on. Bathroom very small..but it served its function. Location great. Staff awesome and very accommodating. Would stay here again!!

Thank you for taking the time to leave the nice review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you'll be staying with us again soon. FYI, some of the rooms have larger bathrooms or kitchens than others. Each has it own "personality". The next time you reserve you can request one of these if it's available. Thanks again, Duane More

My Fiancé flew in to visit me from Chicago where we are from and to help with the task of moving my newly retired Mom to Capitola where my brother has resided for over 20 years now. My fiancé loves the ocean and a couple of days before his arrival I was driving my mom around Capitola looking at rentals... More

I’m sorry for your negative experience. Like all hotels we have a cancellation policy which our staff is trained to enforce. Generally someone who cancels with only a few hours’ notice won’t get a refund of their deposit unless we can re-rent the room. Rarely, under some circumstances, I have waived this policy or allowed guests to apply their deposit... More

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.
