My new favorite place in the world ! This hotel on the beach has everything you could want in a vacation. You can park your car for a few days and walk everywhere. There are shops, restaurants, beach, river, and the room even has a kitchen ! I even own an Inn myself and I see the great value here.... More

We had Room 112 which was wonderful. 2 bedrooms with the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. they also had 2 murphy beds which we did not need to... More

So on the outside, the location seems to good to be true. Because it is. The rooms are funky good in that they have a small living room space w/ a fully functional kitchen and a semi-private bed area, would have beed great for an extended stay, or lots of family or friends. They are funky bad due to the... More

The location of this hotel was great. When it was time to go to bed I felt uncomfortable. It didn't feel clean like the marriott hotel which we stayed at the night before.

The Venetian is all about the view. Situated right on the sand at the lovely Capitola Beach, this historic motel/lodge is a fun place to stay. The proximity to all the charming shops and restaurants in Capitola is very appealing. The management is very helpful and friendly. We had a 1 bdrm unit near the office, which unfortunately is also... More

This was my first visit, having been referred to the Venetian by two co-workers. I got a great price on the room and stayed Monday-Friday. The room was decent and clean. Nice "living room" area and the kitchen came in handy. Had a view of the ocean and a balcony. Yes, there is a roof to look at in front... More

An excellent little boutique hotel with great Ocean View rooms and an outstanding location!! A real find if you want to visit Capitola! Not the cheapest but the extra is definitely worth it because of the views and location.
