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.

Tucked back in off of HWY 1 and easy to get to, this smallish 54 unit hotel is quiet and conveniently located. Each room has its own private deck or patio. Our king room was of ample size with a very comfy bed, table and chairs, small refrigerator, coffee maker, flat screen TV. The bathroom was small and basic. Breakfast... More

I stayed here for 1 night while visiting the area. I was in block 2 on the 2nd floor, facing the back of the parking lot. The room was pretty basic but quiet. The location is great, 1mi or so from Capitola Beach and the Esplanade area. It is also easy to get on to Highway 1 from here, which... More

We will be back when we visit Capitola in the future, the service and convenient location make this our choice. The room is clean and quiet and the bed is comfortable, what more could we ask for. We paid an average price of 200 per night for a Friday and Saturday through Booking.com but still seems like a little on... More

The hot breakfast was good and serviced well. The rooms were ok but the air conditioners did not work really well and very noisey. It was a good value. Mix up in requested downstairs room and some of our party ended upstairs.

Made a 1am arrival and they accomodated us for it with no issues at all. Overall great breakfast, staff and service. The only complaint would be breakfast starts at 7am and our door was literally right next door to the kitchen in which we heard people and kids from 7am and on. Kinda sucked being that we fell asleep at... More
