Rooms: Clean and well appointed but a bit dark. Furnishings a bit mis-matched and worn. Clean which is my number one concern. Price: Given sea-side location expect price inflation, but at over $200 a night the price was too high. Location: Walking distance to good dining and a short drive to downtown Capitola makes this hotel a winner. Value: Fair... More

My husband and I were visiting relatives in Soquel. The hotel was convenient and reasonably priced. The room was large, comfortable and quiet, and had a balcony. Breakfast was fine. We will stay here again.

I was a little nervous at first when I booked one of the cheaper places to stay in the area. But I was pleasantly surprised. There aren't a lot of frills here, but the bed is comfortable and the room was quiet and clean. I got a really good night's sleep. Stayed here for a wedding, so it was a... More

I was staying here for a week while my daughter was at a camp nearby. There are no frills here, no real lobby or café on premises but plenty of stores, food nearby. It was clean and the bed was comfortable, it had a microwave and fridge (although not very cold). there is easy access to the rooms by anyone... More

We had a lovely stay here! Rooms very comfortable and spacious. Lovely toiletries! The staff were very helpful. B'fast buffet was all that one could hope for! We had a lovely meal in a nearby Kebab place down by the harbour! Very inexpensive! And they kindly opened our wine at no cost! The staff were very helpful and attentive to... More

This hotel was under construction when we arrived, the front office was being remodeled. The staff was great, very helpful and friendly. This is an older hotel and even though they've made some renovations, there's a bit more to be done for the price we paid. The rooms were musty smelling and need some updates. I don't think I'd stay... More

The Quality Inn & Suites Capitola By the Sea is comfortable and near the freeway. It was a fine place to stay one night and has a big parking lot. There is a nice coffee place and some shopping across the street. About a mile down toward the beach is Gayle's Bakery and Roticceria, which is pretty famous!

Upon arrival the hotel looked nice with beautiful landscaping. But that was it! The rooms and hallways are in serious need of new carpets and some paint as well as serious cleaning. We were staying in two rooms and they were equally nasty. The pool is tiny and dirty. Lousy breakfast in very small room. Not even skim milk. Staff... More

My husband and I decided last-minute to take an overnight trip to the beach since the weather was so nice. We stayed here at Quality Inn and Suites in Capitola because the price was right and it was conveniently located close to the beach. There aren't many lodging options in Capitola, and with our 2 year old, we wouldn't even... More

I would not recommend this hotel. They have a 2 day cancellation policy and will not be flexible when asked for special consideration. I was not impressed with the front desk nor the appearance of the hotel - doesn't compare to other local hotels.
