In the past, I've stayed in Santa Cruz near the start line and walked past the Inn after finishing. This year we decided to stay in Capitola so that after the race we could just walk up the hill and go to our room. The attention to service was outstanding. We stayed in Cote d'Azure which had a door out... More

INNKEEPER’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2016 via mobile

The staff and the rooms here are absolutely wonderful. We stayed in the library suite and we found it to be spacious and interesting. It has three levels so there are some steps to negotiate, but my wife and I truly enjoyed the unique room. They arranged to have us picked up by the Shadowbrook restaurant, not a bad walk... More

This B and B remains one of the top ever anywhere. It is worth the billing and compliments it gets. They tell you to treat the inn like your home and they mean it. The courtyard , the rooms, the breakfasts are superb. Capitola remains a great place to visit and they provide the service, attention and hospitality you can... More

Elegant room (Paris) with fireplace, spa available ( too cool to want to use). Excellent staff ...friendly , efficient. Ethereal coconut pancakes for breakfast...but also afternoon snacks and wine, port and cookies in the evening. All this within a few short blocks of the beach and Gayle's bakery!

We really enjoyed our visit! We took our parents there and had two rooms, the Sissinghurst and Stratford on Avon rooms. The location is a short walk from the water. We enjoyed breakfast both days (we ate in the dining room). Bathrooms were luxurious and large with double headed showers and marble, and we used the fireplace in our room.... More

Last minute decision to stay in the area. This was the only place available with one room left. On the expensive side but was so very nice. Room was very comfortable on the 2nd floor outside. Nameplate was missing so don't know what the room name was. Staff was awesome. We had breakfast in our room and the food was... More

Booked by sheer chance & would go back regularly if we lived in the region. 12 individually styled rooms & we stayed in Sissinghurst. Exemplary service by staff - nothing too much trouble. Breakfast personally cooked & could be served in the rooms, afternoon tea with homemade biscuits, aperitifs (red or white wine) with substantial nibbles (olives, crackers, cheeses, dips,... More

Wanted a nice getaway without our toddler - and the Inn at Depot Hill was just what we were looking for. Staff was very friendly, breakfast was good (we liked that we could have it delivered to our room), and we appreciated that the Inn was just a few minute walk from restaurants, shops, and the beach.

This was such a romantic getaway for me and my fiance! The staff was amazing and very accommodating. The food was delicious and we had a wonderful relaxing time in the Jacuzzi. Each room has a diary which is a very nice and classy touch! One of the best B&B I've stayed at!

The location at the top of the hill in Capitola was perfect for short walks around town. The comfortable rooms and delicious breakfast were wonderful. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There are several excellent restaurants close by and the small shops were interesting.
