Very satisfied, first time we stayed here. No 'old carpet smells' or smoking odors. Windows open easily for fresh air. Impressed by cleanness. Nice to be so close to Whole Foods, too, and still so close to Capitola and the beaches.

The hotel is very clean and the staff is very helpful. The bed was too soft for me, but other guests liked it. I just prefer a very firm bed. Avoid the rooms abutting the super market next door as delivery trucks come around 4:00 am with that beep, beep, beep noise as they back up into the unloading dock.... More

This hotel is well kept, centrally located, clean rooms, clean bathrooms, nice beds and amenities such as free breakfast and free parking. The value, depending on season, is very good. The other closeby hotel is nicer, comparison shop. The staff at Best Western is the best, friendly and helpful!

This is an excellent hotel. Very accommodating to your needs. The carpet was dirty, and they cleaned it immediately. I got free extra shampoo cuz I forgot mine. The pool was fantastic too. I had some unexpected biz documents & they printed/faxed for me complimentary. The free breakfast was great - especially the waffles. Next time I will pack some... More

Easy to locate and well situated to visit village, boardwalk and within walking distance of beach. Very clean, quiet and warm cookies and candy are on the check-in desk. Free parking and easy to use free Internet. Shopping mall, drugstores and restaurants within 1/2 block of motel.

This is a particularly nice Best Western...so nice, clean with a wonderful staff! Everyone's so nice and helpful, rooms have all the amenities you'd want and it's within walking distance to so much. Turn right and head to the ocean cliffs; turn left and head to the mall, shops or lots of eateries. Just perfect. I stay here all the... More

Great hotel. The front desk staff was very friendly and always willing to answer any and all questions. Room was quite clean. Linens were lovely. Loved the lobby local art decor! Cookies were a nice snack, too!

Nice hotel but could have been anywhere. Was expecting more beach experience. Walk to bay was not very pretty. Breakfast was average. Hotel was clean and staff friendly. Felt it was too expensive for the experience. . .

Dear Pearhare, I'm glad to hear that you found the cleanliness of our hotel and the friendliness of our staff to your liking. I'm sorry our local decor was not to your liking.

Had a great experience. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. They go the extra mile to make it feel like home. Steve and Blake make it a point to learn your first name and greet me as if i was family. They remember what business i'm in and ask how my business is.

Quite simply the best Best Western we have ever stayed in, ever! And, having visited for several years, I am pleased to confirm that the initial high standards set in all areas have never dropped. The staff are friendly and the rooms and public areas immaculate which all contribute to a great stay.
