Stayed here two nights with my mom and sister. Plenty of room with a king bed and sofabed. Includes parking and breakfast. Close to Capitola's shopping area and the beach and short drive to boardwalk. Very comfortable beds, quiet, good service.

Super clean, friendly staff and great complimentary breakfast. Sounds cliche, but it's not. Great location, near grocery stores and shopping mall. I really enjoyed every aspect of my stay and plan to book again next time I'm in Capitola.

We have stayed here a dozen times over the last several years. We always feel welcomed, comfortable, and pampered. The staff is outstanding. We are in the midst of a severe drought and the grounds still look lovely. Even the painted lawn!
