I was very excited to stay at this hotel based on a friend's recommendation. We were going to be in the area for a birthday party and decided to make a weekend of it. The Stratford upon Avon room was available on their website and I planned to stay in this room based on price. I called the hotel because...

I am so sorry hear of your experience. In discussing this with the Inn Manager I truly feel this was an unfortunate mis-communication. As a small intimate inn, we strive to be conscientious of all our guests to maximize their personal getaway experience. It is true that our inn does not offer cribs and that our inn is a historic...

"The Inn" ended up being the perfect choice for a getaway weekend. Along with dinner at Shadowbrook (they'll send a car to taxi you to the restaurant and back), and a day trip to see the elephant seals we had a great and relaxing weekend. So glad I read the Tripadvisor reviews! The Inn is beautifully decorated, our room was...

My teenage daughter and I decided to do a coastal trip including Capitola and were pleased to stay at the Inn at Depot Hill again. We stayed a year before and truly enjoyed it. Pictures can not even begin to show the elegance and attention to detail these rooms have. Last time we stayed in the Sissinghurst themed room and...

After all the chaos of the holidays my husband and I were in need of some time away. This was our first stay at Depot Hill and we loved it. We stayed in the Capitola Beach Room which was perfect - soothing colors and beautiful decor. The Inn was nice and quiet which was perfect for us and a short...

Form the moment we checked in the staff was wonderful and the accommodations were better than pictures could show. We are very particular about the places we stay and this was right up there with some of the best at even higher prices. We would recommend it to everyone.

An experience not to be missed! My husband and I have visited this Inn on two occasions; once for our first Christmas together as a couple and then again as a married couple. It holds a special place in our hearts and its comfort and elegance cannot be beat by anything else in the area. Forget about cookie-cutter hotels and...

Just returned from a one night stay at the Inn and Depot Hill and we were wishing we had longer. It is in the perfect location, a very short (less than 5 min) walk to the beach and downtown area. Which if you have ever had to attempt to park there is both expensive and a nightmare so being able...

I have wanted to stay here forever, and finally had the chance. My husband and I went for my birthday and it was a perfect way to celebrate. Upon arrival we were greeting by two very friendly staff members who promptly checked us in and gave us the run down. We stayed in the Delft room... one word, AMAZING! It's...

Staying in Capitola for a birthday weekend. Husband picked the Inn as a special surprise for my birthday. We were greeted at check in with courtesy and warm cookies. Our room was gorgeous with a fireplace and private jet bathtub (right outside the room in a private patio). Bed was very comfortable, but we each tended to slide toward the...

Let me say first of all that my mother-in-law said this was the nicest hotel she has ever stayed at. Personally, I am not a huge fan of B&Bs as I like my privacy, but we got a gift certificate from our real estate agent to pay for half of our stay and I knew my in-laws would love this...
