I am writing this on behalf of family and friends who have stayed at this hotel near us in Capitiola as well as an urgent stay for home repairs. Rated one of the best of the Best Western hotels, the family who own and run this establishment care thoroughly.

Extremely quiet, convenient, and reasonably well-appointed hotel at a good value for the area. Staff is great, both front desk and anyone we ran into in housekeeping and the folks that set up the breakfast area.

What can I say other than it was a clean well maintained hotel. I have no complaints. The free wifi streamed Netflix without issue. The included breakfast was better than I have had at similar chains but nothing to write home about.

Stayed here over the weekend while visiting my mother in law. easy access to everything. Hotel was clean, room was clean. Continental breakfast in the morning was a bonus. We were very busy, so we were not in the room much.

Very good experience, better than expected, clean and has all the accommodations as more expensive chains. However a "bar" would have been great, but not necessary. Reservation staff and front desk staff exceptionally polite and respectful. Made you feel welcomed and like a special guest.

This is an excellent hotel. You are close to everything. The beach, movies, places of all prices to eat at, and the mall, and the Village of Capitola. We love the staff and feel so welcome. It's also close to the City of Santa Cruz. Pizza My Heart is a fun place to eat at.
