The location is great in terms of it being directly in the middle of town and on the main strip but that's also a downside. Since it's such a small, trafficked area, the noise is just about non-stop and you definitely hear it from the rooms. (late night cars and people, and early morning trash trucks) and our room was...

We stayed here for three nights with friends. We had lots of kids between us and they were very welcoming. The main reason this hotel is ideal is the location, so close to the beach and facilities. Made it a little loud at night though.

Hi, Thanks so much for this great review of the Capitola Hotel. We are definitely in the heart of it all, no need to drive anywhere. It's such an ideal spot when you have kids...walk to the beach and right back up to your room, then across the street for dinner after everyone is all cleaned up! And yes, the... More

If you are about convenience and location (near beach), check in and walk the town. No complaints besides the garbage man at 6 a.m. next to my window. Very safe, clean, quant and located to everything in walking distance was what I was looking for. Thanks for sending my sons shoes in the mail too!

This "Quaint" little Hotel, nestled in the heart of Capitola Village is a unique place to stay. We had the Bonaires room, overlooking the garden patio. We enjoyed the outdoor fireplace in the evening, & being able to walk everywhere in town, including Shadowbrook restaurant for dinner.The friendly, very accommodating staff were magnificent! The noise factor outside was a nuisance... More

The staff is friendly and helpful. The area is busy and congested and the hotel is definitely a little haven from the outside. However, the rooms and hotel are quite small. It was clean, neat and in good condition, just not spacious. I was very glad the hotel emailed us in advance and warned us about parking. The fee for... More

Hi, Thanks so much for your review. I'm so glad you were able to leverage our reserved parking to make your stay more relaxing. Capitola is extremely popular this time of year. This little seaside village was built to accommodate about 10,000 people, but on any given weekend upwards of 40,000 people ascend on our tiny town. Makes for amazing... More

While the early morning deliveries on the street woke us each morning, we really didn't mind. This hotel is in a prime location. The staff went above and beyond to meet our needs. Will absolutely stay at Capitola Hotel again!

We have stayed here every Summer for the last 7 years and the rooms as well as staff are always GREAT! You can't beat the location as it is close to everything. You can also walk to the Shadowbrook and enjoy a world class dining experience. We will be back again next Summer!

Ask for early check in if you are in town. They're very open to accommodating if they can. Consider street parking first and walking all over. Capitola is very small and accessible. There was a small refrigerator in our room. A whole foods not far away.

The Capitola Hotel is a lovely little boutique hotel right across the street from the beach. Super friendly staff, and hotel management clearly wants to make guests feel welcome and spoiled. It was our anniversary and in our room they left us a gorgeous box of chocolates from a local chocolate maker. So nice. The bed and sheets are amazing.
