Stayed in the Grand Cayman room. We will boook this room again in the summer. Great location. Adorable hotel. Our car stayed parked for the weekend. Walked everywhere . Shadowbrook Resturant will pick you up and drive you to dinner. Excellent food.

Fair warning: this is going to be a lovey dovey review for this wonderful hotel. Starting with check in--it was a breeze.

You get a parking pass when you check in and after giving it...

Wanted a romantic stay on the beach while showing my boyfriend my hometown. There really aren't a lot of desirable hotels to choose from in Santa Cruz area. The Capitola Inn is one of the only ones with appeal so we were happy to find a room available. Well it turned out that we didn't sleep much at all that...

Great location. Small, but adequate room. Small refrigerator in the closet. No bathtub in the 2 different rooms I have booked. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. New TV in the room. Wifi was okay. The whole village area had spotty cel service. Even with bars showing calls wouldn't come through and texts were sometimes delayed. A waiter...

Hi, Thanks for taking time to write this review for the Capitola Hotel. I'm glad you found the location great, the room clean and the bed comfortable. Cell service in Capitola Village has been a challenge for years, but luckily for us, a new cell tower is about to be erected on top of Margaritaville. This should drastically improve wifi...

I love the overall look and vibe of Capitola Hotel. It's very conveniently located to have front-row sets to the village. My only complaint -- and it's not really a complaint -- is that for the price, the room we stayed in as very cramped. Otherwise we loved it!

Hi, Thanks so much for taking the time to write this review of the Capitola Hotel. I'm so glad you loved the "look", "vibe" and convenience of our hotel. We are certainly a boutique hotel, very reminiscent of small hotels in Europe. Our rooms are small, but we believe our service and location are very big! Perhaps you might like...

The Capitola Hotel is perfectly located on the Esplanade in the center of town. Attractive room, comfy bed, big continental breakfast, friendly and helpful staff, free parking on the Esplanade, private terrace with fireplace, what's not to love?
