We stayed here during the Capitola Art and Wine festival. What a wonderful place to stay! It's literally a few minutes walk from the cute coastal area. The hotel itself is very relaxing and beautiful. The staff is very friendly too. I recommend the Library suite with its hidden nook and seating area. They also cater for gluten free.

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 place is amazing and every room is different and beautiful. It is not inexpensive, but very cool. They serve an awesome wine and cheese hour every day. And the breakfast is included and is outstanding.

This is a very nice inn, and I'm confident that you will enjoy your stay here. However, it is not the peak of luxury that you might expect from the descriptions and photographs on their website. I also thought our room was overpriced at $307 one night and $384 the other night, including tax. The inn has a charming look... More

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

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
