We recently stayed at the Capitola Hotel for my husband's birthday. We have been here several times before and always return. It is just great. We always get the Grand Cayman suite, which is located separately from the rest of the hotel. It has it's own patio area where we love to sit and people watch. It is right on... More

This place was clean, conveniently located and one block off the beach-very affordable for an almost beach front room-I will definitely be back but next time for pleasure instead of business-it fills up fast so you will need to book way in advance

The Capitola Hotel is a small luxury on a big coast. We found everything charming, handy, affordable and clean. Love this place! Will be back!!! We were right across the street from bars and restaurants. Did lots of walking in Capitola's quaint neighborhoods and shopping district. Felt this was quite the central CA experience.

This hotel is located right on the Esplanade in Capitola. The beach is right across the street and restaurants/shops are at your doorstep. Our room was clean and had a kitchenette stocked with snacks. Our patio faced the street -great for people watching!

This hotel was perfect for our one night getaway from the SF Bay Area. It's nestled right in the heart of the village and so close to the beach. The rooms were smaller than in a big chain hotel, but so cute and comfortable. We also were able to walk to the famous Shadowbrook restaurant for our anniversary dinner. It... More

I have wanted to stay at this hotel since it first opened up, and finally I have. My husband booked this for a night I had to work late in the area and met me there. Pro's: location! Can't beat it. Right across the street from all of the restaurants and bars, right on the esplanade. Simply - can't beat... More

We thank these guests for staying with us! We are a small 10 room boutique hotel across the street from the beach in Capitola Village, so it is true, it is a very good location. Our prices are comparable with other hotels in the area that are outside of Capitola Village and much further from the beach. We have in... More

What a great little hotel! And at such reasonable prices. For once my husband and I got to get away without the kids. We'd happened upon Capitola when our oldest was 6 months old so it was so neat to get back 7 years later. It's such a cool little town and still felt the same (a few newer things,... More

A few weeks later I recieved a call that a room had come available. I took it. The price had gone up since... More

Could have gotten a room twice as big at one of the chains up on the highway, but I wouldn't be almost on the beach, downtown in a VERY cool and walkable fun beach town, and wouldn't have the wonderful ladies to chat with at the front desk. While the room is about the size of a bedroom, it was... More

The room was small but the bed was comfortable. Also noisy. The music from across the street stops at 11 but their are noisy garbage and utility trucks throughout the night. The hotel is located in the center of everything and the parking is, well, complicated; you park at any meter within a few blocks and they give you a... More
