I called to make the reservation and Blake was wonderful. When I got there he also checked me in and again a great experience. The room was very clean and I love the ceramic tile wood floor. So much better than carpet. Good location too.

Hotel's Favorite
Honestly, I booked this hotel because we needed a place in Capitola and I remembered I had BW points I could use. It looked fine from the website, booked 2 rooms and I barely gave it another thought. We were traveling to Santa Barbara by bicycle, so as we wound our way up the hill, wondering if we were going the right way, I wasn't sure how this would go. We LOVED this place. The ladies at the front desk could not have been nicer. She told me they upgraded our rooms to suites. Sweet!! They had an elevator that our loaded bicycled fit in easily. The decor was perfect for the seaside area - turquoise and white and artwork that depicted local events. The whole ambiance was inviting. Our rooms were beautiful and big - even with a fireplace! (The pilot light in the fireplace made the room a bit warm for me, even on a cool foggy day, so one of the maintenance guys turned it off. For my friends, it made the room temp just right.) The beds were heaven with plenty of pillows of different softness. We decided to go to Whole Foods, just steps away, bought food for dinner and picnic in our room. Had the weather been warmer, we would have gone down the tables with umbrellas near the pool and had our picnic there - but with our suites, our room was perfect for that. It is a relatively short walk down to the water and the center of Capitola from the hotel. My friends went out for a lovely evening stroll after our picnic. Breakfast was delicious, and early (6:30) if we needed to get on the road. The scrambled eggs were hot, not over-cooked and frequently replaced. Great variety of food. Granted, we were cycling and food - breakfast especially - is a big deal. But this was especially nice. A wonderful experience all around.

Very clean hotel. Easy to navigate through. Breakfast was delicious. My only negative was very loud garbage trucks at 6am and my faucet wouldn't stop dripping. Didn't get to enjoy the pool becuase it was so packed, but as expected mid July.

Thank you for being our guest and reviewing our property. We are sorry about the local garbage truck pick up noise. As your review does not have your name, we can not determine which room you stayed in. If you would be so kind to give us a call at 831-477-0607 to report which room you stayed in, so that we can repair the leaky faucet as to not waste water. That would be greatly appreciated. We are happy to hear you loved our Breakfast! We hope to see you again should your travels bring you back to Capitola. Oh, by the way our lovely pool is heated year round. Have a wonderful day!

This is one of the best room designs that I've experienced. First, the floor is wood, which is clean and fresh compared to carpeting. The seating area, desk and amenities are just perfect for folks who work on the go.

We spent one night at this hotel on our way down the coast. On check-in, Blake directed us to an easy 10 minute walk to the Capitola Warf and beach. Our stay included a free breakfast with lots of yummy options; Seattle's Best coffee is available in the lobby. They also have a small pool and spa which we all enjoyed. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable enough. Firm fluffy pillows, two sinks, carpet-free, ample closet space. Parking out back.
