Excellent Family Accommodation in a perfect position for everything.
Great service, friendly and helpful staff.

We stayed just one night using points and overall had a great experience at this Fairfield. Check in was quick and self parking under the Inn was easy. Complimentary breakfast included the usual continental fare plus there was oatmeal, Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwiches and do it yourself waffles. I thought the bed was a little too firm but pillows were great. Loved that there were 2 TVs and a separate sitting area. Would definitely stay here again!

We stayed here for one night on a road trip up the coast. Nice hotel, very new and some interesting decor (jelly fish chandelier). But the service was not great, the front desk staff had us wait a very long time to check in because they were on the phone, and then they gave us no information at check in and were not friendly. Other than that the rest of the stay was fine.

The hotel was much better than I had expected. The rooms are nice but it would have been nice if they would have added a door separating the bedroom from the front room. The problem I had was we were in room 101 it was VERY noisy. A bad location for a room. Doors entering from the courtyard are right near the bedroom window and when people drag their luggage across courtyard it wakes you up VERY early. The bed was actually one of the worse I have slept on it was so noisy every time you moved it woke up the others in the room and it felt really broken down. Its a tough call the hotel is nice but we were woken up through the night with people in the courtyard area talking and with people dragging luggage early in the morning and uncomfortable beds I would really have to think about returning. Such a shame for a nice looking hotel.

This hotel experience was wonderful from start to finish. The entire property is extremely clean and stylish. We were very impressed with the service and complimentary breakfast. Our room was fresh and clean.

Our family really enjoyed this hotel and thought it was a step above what we would have expected from a Fairfield Inn. The suite was nicely appointed and staff was courteous, prompt, and available. While new to the area, we thought the location was great, not far from the beach yet far enough away that it was quiet. Capitola was a lovely town and we would have enjoyed visiting the beach and shopping, if we had more time in the area. We would absolutely return to this hotel.

Room Tip: Our inside room opened to a courtyard fishbowl area. If you like more privacy might consider reque...

Catching up on my reviews. I stayed here in Feb 2012, from a recommendation from a friend who lived in the area. I live in San Francisco and frequent Santa Cruz for weekend getaways. I wanted somewhere newer and cleaner from the hotels by the boardwalk. This was a great price and brand new. The location is great as it is right on 41st street - the main street with lots of surf shops (O'neill is practically next door) and restaurants. Our room was pretty big, we stayed in the Junior Suite - King. Very modern and clean. The staff was ok, but I really don't talk to them besides checking in and out. Will stay here again.
