Excellent experience. Took such good care of my mom during the stay as my dad was in the hospital. Went out of their way to be accommodating. Don't find that so much these days. Great location as well.

In the Southern end of the San Francisco Peninsular, you can't do better than the Best Western Capitola for a good value Hotel in this charming town, or for a place to stay in reasonable reach of Monterey, you can't do better than this Capitola Hotel.

This is a very nice Best Western and it's location in Capitola is very convient. Close to the mall; good restaurants and only a short drive to the Bay. We will definitely stay here again should the opportunity arise.

We were in the one set of rooms with a door between. We had 6 adults and two children. There was room to set up a small crib. It was a very comfortable situation for our extended family. We're glad we had called a long time ago to make the reservation and have the two rooms available.
