This hotel is one I stayed at almost on a weekly basis for business for 3 1/2 yrs. I've grown to know the staff and have always felt safe and comfortable staying here. It has been about 5 yrs. since I stayed here last and was blessed to see that two of the staff were still there and still treated... More

Everything was clean and comfortable, the staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast included many choices. Location close to Gayle's Bakery and Shadowbrook Restaurant (both wonderful). We will return!

This hotel made our mini-vacation in Capitola so much fun. Blake at the front desk was helpful, room and amenities perfectly clean, and the heated pool and jacuzzi were great. The bed was so comfortable. Will definitely stay here again.

I absolutely LOVE this place! The staff was so friendly and helpful, the location was perfect, the price was right, and the breakfast was excellent. We loved having the option to make our own waffles!! We will definitely be back very soon and this will be our go to motel anytime we are in the area!

Beautiful rooms with king size beds that seem so much larger. Refrigerator, microwave. Free parking, Perfect continental breakfast. A staff eager to assist and offer advice. I had thought(my mistake) that this hotel was across from the boardwalk. It is not FAR from the boardwalk and requires a car. Pool and hot tub for guests

The rooms are spacious, the breakfast was was fine, and the pool area, although a bit small when there are several groups there, receives sun all afternoon. It is on a very busy street, and our room faced the nearby strip mall, so each morning we woke up to the sound of delivery trucks beeping as they backed into the... More

We have stayed in this Best Western many times over the last 10 years. The service has always been excellent, the rooms comfortable. AND the windows open so you can get fresh air and sea breezes, even tho you are 3/4 mile away from the ocean.

Great location, the pool is amazing, the breakfast was great. Couldn't have been happier with our stay. They even have free chocolate chip cookies! A quick walk to the beach or shopping, need a card key to enter the hotel, so it's secure. Staff went out of their way to make sure we had a good stay.

I recently had a wonderful day in Capitola for my birthday, and this hotel made an excellent place to spend the night after a day on the beach and in the boutiques. My room was quiet and very clean and comfortable with lovely amenities in the bathroom, and I also loved the Pacific Cookie Company cookie at check-in and the... More

I really feel that the hotels in the Santa Cruz area are overpriced for the amenities being offered. It is a vacation/tourist area and the rates are not for the faint of heart. We booked 2 rooms within minutes of each other and ended up being charged $30 more for the second booking. $200 for the same type of room... More
