I was very pleased with my stay. The hotel was clean, the staff friendly and helpful. The breakfast in the mornings was yummy. The buffet had everything I wanted and then some. What made it nicer, was it's close proximity to so many sites within walking distance. I would highly recommend this hotel.

I booked this family suite 6 months ahead to get it during the summer for a good price. Our combined sleeping had two queens beds in one room and a king with fold-out sofa in the other and a door between each room. All beds were comfortable except the sofa bed, but it seemed ok for a small child and... More

The building is very impressive, and the rooms are clean. the staff is competent and friendly. The only problem I had is that the room decor was old and a... More

First, don't blame the motel for its name"CAPITOLA BY THE SEA", that is the name of the city as far as I can see. You should know that it is is not "on the sea" and certainly not on the beach or near the wdater, and I don't say they claim it is. It is a twisting drive down to... More

We stayed 4 nights with two children and enjoyed our stay. The staff is wonderful and the hotel is in a good location, only a couple of minutes drive to the beach. The continental breakfast had such a wide variety of food, we ate there every morning! The hotel also offered chocolate chip cookies at the front desk in the... More

It is always nice to stay at The Best Western Plus Capitola by the Sea. It is close to everything and a wonderful hotel. This time we brought our grandsons and they had a great time in the pool and having their own sleeping area. The staff here is great and I always feel welcome when we check in.

I stayed one night in a 2 room, 3 bed suite with my teenaged son and his friend. Check in was easy and agent was very friendly. The room was very spacious and had a mini-fridge, microwave, multiple sink areas, but just one bathroom. I think I had assumed that the room would be two connecting rooms and therefore have... More

Excellent all the way around. We visited friends in Capitola and this was the only hotel with last minute availability. Rates were very reasonable especially for the location. Staff, room service and cleanliness definitely a 10. This is now are "go to" hotel when we travel to this part of the State
