Thank you for the nice review. Sorry you had trouble finding parking. We do have free parking for one car per room but it you have two vehicles or an extra large one you may have to park on the street. I agree that the pizza place in Capitola has some of the best around. Regards, Duane More

We stayed in room 123 which was quite roomy, nice and clean. One of the two beds is in the family room but it worked out fine for us. You can close a door between the bedroom and family room for privacy. There are two balconies with a nice view if you look past the roof line of the building... More

you can stroll or pub-crawl from the Venitian's small condo style apartments to Capitola Village- this place is on the beach (but most rentable units are NOT on the sand)- you are only steps away and you have boat rentals, board rentals (SUP and Surf) bikes, and a bunch of great little restaurants and grills.... live music on the weekends-...

Plus -right by the ocean and a very short walk to Shadowbrook & other places to eat. Con- our room was right on the road and it is very noisy beginning in the am with street sweepers, etc. Small shower and no storage in tiny bathroom. Has kitchen but missing some items like a toaster and knives.

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.

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.

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
