My husband and I stayed here for his birthday weekend and loved every minute of it! The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. We loved how everything was so close and we walked everywhere… didn’t even know there were stairways that would take you right into the center of town and to the beach. The room was spacious and super comfortable with a lovely balcony. Loved sitting out by the fountain with a glass of wine in the afternoon. Started each morning with the delicious and varied breakfasts. The perfect get away! ❤️

LOOK NO FURTHER! We stay here at this inn regularly. We lived in this area for 35 years and are familiar with all the hotels and have stayed in most of them….high end and moderate range. The Inn at Depot Hill is run incredibly well. THE INNKEEPER: He is a master at making sure breakfast is served with quality ingredients. Very tasty. Served on time. He is only a phone call away if needed. He responds immediately. He is amazing! THE STAFF: Wonderful, accommodating and very kind. THE ROOMS: Absolutely spotless down to the grout in the shower. Everything is clean and bed linens are fresh, fluffy and comfy. The bed is very comfortable. Nice fireplace in the rooms. Bathroom nice and big with great lighting…also spotless. THE INN: Centrally located and nice walking distance to Capitola and the beach. Just a few blocks away. Nice bakery about 1/2 mile down the road. The other hotels don’t even compare. I have arrived at a high end hotel here with plugged up drains at 10 pm. and no one to take care of the problem. Not great service and not always clean. You will never know how great it is to have such personalized service unless you stay at Depot Hill. Give it a go and tell your friends. It’s extraordinary!

Awesome experience at this bed and breakfast. The breakfast each day was amazing, and the inn is very well maintained. The best part of staying here is the customer service. Sagar is always going above and beyond to make sure your experience is the best. His customer focused "can-do" attitude made our trip. I highly recommend the Inn at Depot Hill!

Friends of ours, Lucy W. and her husband, recommended the "Inn" for us to consider while traveling this past week along California's Central Coast. We spent 3-delightful nights at the Inn at Depot Hill...where each room is decorated to reflect different destination themes from when the Inn was, during a prior life, Capitola's railroad depot. Sugar (pronounced SAW-ger) is the perfect host/manager and represented the Inn to perfection...including recommending and making dinner reservations for us which, in one instance, included complimentary restaurant-arranged transportation in a fully restored Checker Cab. Our room, the Railroad Baron, was exceptionally quiet, roomy with two separate closets, a gas fireplace at the foot of the bed, a comfortable sitting area to take breakfast (which arrived at least exactly on time) and to sip after-dinner drinks, as well as a huge bathroom complete with a large tub, a large separate shower, and a small balcony that overlooks the Inn's secluded courtyard. Five-stars to Sugar, as well as, the morning staff, the Inn's condition, cleanliness, quiet location and walking proximately to Capitola's dining. We will be back!!!

All of the rooms are unique. As we wanted a King bed there were just two rooms, one was the Costa Brava and we loved it with it's own deck and balcony. We also moved to the Paris room and found it cozy with a fire place. We thought the Manager Sager was very helpful, friendly and easy going. He gave us great dinner recommendations.

I stayed here part of Labor Day weekend w my fiancé in the Kyoto room. It was beautiful and relaxing w it’s own nearby parking space. The private zen garden and two person tub w rainfall shower were really nice additions to the room. We also really enjoyed the garden and breakfast in the room provided the next morning. Sayger (sorry if this is spelled wrong) gave us a wonderful tour of w building and provided great service. It is a very beautiful property. Love that it’s adults only two. That really added to the relaxed and calm atmosphere in a seaside town.

Charming rooms, wonderful service, near downtown Capitola and walk along old railroad tracks. Nice patio were you can reserve to have breakfast. Breakfast was very good (pancakes one day, Eggs Benedict the 2nd day) . Stayed in the lovely Library room. You can hear traffic if windows are open but it does die down after 9 pm. Friends stayed in the Valencia room which has a nice sitting and dining area. Shower is in the deep whirlpool tub which can be inconvenient for some.

We stayed two nights at the Inn at Depot Hill and had a great time. We were greeted by the manager, Sagar who is super friendly and helpful. We booked the Cote D'Azur room and really enjoyed the interesting decor, the thick fluffy towels, the very comfortable bed and the fireplace. We never got around to using the hot tub but it was available. Breakfast is cooked to order and just the right amount. We loved the olde Worlde look and feel of this converted Train depot, it's neat to have breakfast where 80 years ago Railway staff handed out tickets to passengers. A short walk takes you to the beach, or, in the other direction, Peets Coffee, and a really nice bakery etc. We will be visiting again.

Three of us stayed here--2 in the Library Room and 1 in Sissinghurst. The rooms are very welcoming and well done in this former railway station converted to an inn. The check-in process was a bit complicated with locked doors and not enough personnel to make the process go smoothly. I live in the area and had always wanted to experience a stay here. Unhappily, the traffic noises and neighborhood noises have increased quite a bit. The adjoining small town of Capitola which used to be family-oriented and pleasant is not anymore. The streets were dirty and the restaurants both crowded and run--down. A person with a loud speaker blaring rap "music" which contained amazing amounts of profanity in front of the ice-cream store did not help the ambience, but perhaps things have changed in Middle-America and I have not.

Loved our stay at The Inn at Depot Hill! Everyone on the staff was welcoming and accommodating--Sagar was especially friendly and offered to give suggestions on restaurants, places to go, etc. There are plenty of complimentary snacks in the lobby, as well as bottles of wine available to purchase (Sagar said this is to replace their former wine reception, which had to be halted during COVID). We stayed in the Cote d'Azur room; although we didn't have time to use the outdoor tub, we frequently sat on our private patio that overlooked the main patio/garden--such a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere! The breakfasts were top-notch and very filling. The location is ideal--walking distance to the beach and into town. You definitely can't go wrong staying at The Inn at Depot Hill!
