The hotel was nice. The location of the hotel is great! There was easy access and walking distance to grocery stores, restaurants and the BEACH!! The person who checked us in was very helpful. There was easy access to parking.

Checked in late on a Thursday and was warmly greeted. Room was cozy and location was pretty good to get to all the sites I wanted to see. Got a great recommendation for a restaurant nearby. Free breakfast was just right. A very comfortable experience.

We have stayed here quite often in the past, and this is our very first choice in the Santa Cruz area. You know you can tell a good hotel when you miss staying there. We have family that we now stay with, but we truly miss the wonderful hospitality, comfort, and amenities of this particular Best Western Plus in Capitola.... More

No pets allowed, just FYI. I always travel with my emotional support dog but didn't this weekend in part due to this policy. Friendly desk staff, was very helpful with directions (walking) and places to eat. This hotel is within walking distance to the Capitola Boardwalk (20 min). The rooms are nice with a refrigerator. The water for the shower... More

We chose this hotel in Capitola as coming from Morgan Hill to do Whale Watching at . Moss Landing and didn't want to stay at a Harbour. The hotel was good for plenty of shops and restaurants and worth a visit to Capitola by the Sea its self. Not a lot of parking but if you drive around eventually you... More

It's not fancy, but a very nice place to stay. Room was clean, beds comfortable, and the property was well cared for with beautiful plants on the grounds. Very convenient location with easy access to shopping, restaurants and the beach. Will definitely stay here again.

I stayed here for one night recently. Everything was nice and the breakfast was surprisingly robust. But the shower was kind of dirty. Everything else was good and I would probably stay here again. But they missed on a basic requirement, and my wife wore shoes in the room after finding the bath under par.
