My family recently stayed here while stopping in Santa Cruz. It's a good hotel for a family. Clean, in a nice area, and an easy few minute drive to Santa Cruz. We used the hotel' s pool, which was well maintained. In our room, we also had a jacuzzi tub, which was a hit with the kids. Continental breakfast is... More

I love Capitola, the place was nice to sleep and have breakfast. I would have liked to have been closer to the water. It was our 35th wedding anniversary and I would have liked the stay there to have been a bit more special.

All staff were super-efficient and professional. Some front-desk staff especially welcoming. Cord in shower to hang towels on was handy. Also convenient were two sinks and vanities, one in bathroom, one in entry after the closet. Enough mirrors that a whole wedding party could get ready without tripping over each other, but not many hangers in closet. Breakfast typical, nothing... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. The room is comfortable and quiet. The hotel is convenient to the mall, and several restaurants. The breakfast was not as good as many Best Western properties offer, but alternatives are an easy walk.

Very well run hotel, clean and comfortable. Desk clerk accommodated a room change with panache (I had forgotten to request an upper floor) and later recommended a fine restaurant within walking distance.

After a stressful day of driving, this was a great place to unwind. Our room opened up from a late cancellation, so we were lucky to get in without a reservation. Steve was very quick on the phone to get us in at a good rate. The room was spacious with comfortable seating, windows that open, and mini-fridge. The bed... More

Stayed here two nights with my mom and sister. Plenty of room with a king bed and sofabed. Includes parking and breakfast. Close to Capitola's shopping area and the beach and short drive to boardwalk. Very comfortable beds, quiet, good service.
