Comfortable bed and well equipped room overlooking the bay. Beautiful grounds. Enjoyed the information provided on the history of the Inn. Short walk to Capitola beach town. Wonderful for restaurants... More

Everything about this inn met my criteria for a girls getaway: beautiful ocean view from our room; walking distance to cute shops and restaurants; super comfortable bed and tasteful decor; and even a fridge and microwave if you want to bring snacks. The eating table in our room looks out the bay window over the lovely gardens and down to... More

We stayed in the Carriage House - brought along my wife, daughter and my dog. It was the perfect accommodation for us. The property is amazing, of course, with wonderful grounds and a great view. The Carriage House worked very well for us as well. 2 large rooms, a big kitchen/dining room, and your own private outdoor jacuzzi. The location,... More

We stayed in the Rose Garden suite, which was beautiful and clean. We enjoyed a walk around the grounds and the views of the ocean. The staff is thoughtful and accommodating. The breakfast was well-planned. We'd definitely stay again.

The Monarch Cove Inn is located on a beautiful site. We had a comfortable bed,a great view of the pacific ocean, and the breakfast delivered to the room hit the spot. The grounds is very picturesque, so we took many photos.

This place is wonderful. Very peaceful and a beautiful setting. Lovely accommodations and great service. I would definitely stay here again. The website photos are an accurate portrayal of the Inn, grounds, and the room I had. We have been going to and staying in Santa Cruz for years as our son lives there. We always stayed in Santa Cruz... More

We had an amazing quick getaway for rest and relaxation that was beyond our expectations. Our stay in the Ocean Mist Suite was absolutely perfect! We had views of the ocean in all rooms, including the bathroom. The rooms were so much larger than the pictures show and allowed the 4 of us to have more than enough space for... More

I loved staying here the night before heading for Carmel Valley. We came from camping in Yosemite, and needless to say it was a great contrast. The sun was shining and I was standing forever soaking in the view. The house has so much exciting history, and I especially liked the thought of mafia boss Scarface Capone walking around the...

My sister and I stayed here for one night and loved it. We were in a cute room called the "Butterfly Room". The lady at the front desk was very sweet and walked us to our room. They even delivered our continental breakfast to our room at the time we chose. It was within walking distance to the popular shopping... More
