Lovely stay at this hotel in Capitola. Since there is not a Marriott in the area we ended up at this hotel due to the great reviews.

Great hotel. Rooms are very spacious. Good free breakfast. New and clean. Would stay again in a heartbeat. Love the suite space with second tv and couch. The only disappointment was a minor one. No laundry room after 9pm.

We stayed for 3 nights in this hotel. Check-in was very quick. The staff is warm hearted and made us feel very welcome. The hotel is clean, our room was spacious. Breakfast was various and you could eat in- or outside. Nice pool and gym. Free secured parking. Shopping mall and restaurants on walking distance.

We stayed here for one night, while travelling. The hotel was clean and staff were all friendly and helpful. There were five of us in the room. It was spacious: we didn't feel squashed. We had a nice meal in the evening and complimentary breakfast in the morning. Would definitely stay there again.
