The Venetian Hotel is the perfect little getaway for both families and couples! You are right on the beach with a fantastic view of the ocean! Walking everywhere is a must from local shops to great places to eat. One of my favorite spots to share at a good price..

Your experience at this hotel will depend on the room you have. We had two units; one was a large two bedroom unit on the corner with a view of the river and the ocean and the other was in the middle of a row without a view. We spent all of our time in the first unit and loved...

Let's start with the pro's : the staff is always cheerful. Just a short walk to everything from the beach, shopping, and restaurants. The con's, so many con's. The room was horrible. It was the only room attached to the office and was not mentioned in the description. Tons and tons of walking traffic at all hours. The only upside...

Hotel clean and convenient location to shops, restaurants and bars. All walking distance even for coffee in the morning. Beach in front of hotel dirty. Would not recommend taking a romantic stroll along beach.

We love staying here for the location and room options. Sometimes it's just adults and sometimes we have several couples all going with our kids. The many room options always has something for everyone in our group. And you cannot beat the location on one of our favorite California beaches

We love this place, been staying here a few years in a row now. This year, we showed up a day late (wife screwed up the reservation). And we come during spring break, so it is usually very full. They worked with us and found a way to get us a room, and as a bonus, it was a better...

We were looking for a one night visit to a beach hotel returning from San Francisco and found Capitola, a sleepy little hamlet nestled along the beach with cute little restaurants, bars and touristy shops. Great place to spend a long weekend or just wander around. The Capitola Venetian Hotel is in the midst and within a short walk across...

What a wonderful spot. This is an older motel but who cares. Very clean and comfortable. Beautiful sunrise view and the location is truly perfect. Just steps away from the wharf and lovely Capitola village. The staff was friendly too. We will be back!!!

First as most others have said, the location is great. Steps from the beach and many dining choices with in a short walk. The rooms are a little outdated but some upgrades as mentioned by management previously were visible. New counter tops and fixtures in bath and kitchen area. Room was adequate in size for the two of us. There...

We've stayed here for years and years every October when the crowds disappear and the weather is spectacular. The location is amazing but the rooms have always been average at best. The past several years the maintenance and condition of the rooms have gone downhill. This complaint is not directed at housekeeping but the owners who inexplicably have not maintained...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I'm sorry you felt the property here was not maintained as well as you'd like. I see that you stayed in October of last year. In the year since then we have done some upgrades and are planning more for this year. We now have granite counter tops in all...
