“Great place to stay in Capitola”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2012

We recently stayed at the Fairfiled Inn and Suites in Capitola. Very new and nicely decorated, spacious, good location. Rooms were very nice and the staff friendly and helpful. Good breakfast included. Beaches are not in walking distrance but still no problem getting to them or the lovely little town of Capitola.

Marriott always has reliable quality, but this hotel in new and in an excellent location and what makes it exceptional is the staff! We relied on the front desk to recommend good restaurants and activities and every time the recommendation was fantastic. There were 9 of us in total with an age spread from 10 to 50 so a diversity of tastes but each recommendation seemed to satisfy everybody.

We stayed between Christmas and New Year. Rooms are very comfortable and we also used the very nice lounge area to play card and board games.They also have a very nice pool and a small Bocce court (we played this too!). The hotel is a 5 minute drive from Capitola beach. Restaurants are within walking or short driving distance. It was a great break!

First time to visit Santa Cruz, choose our typical Marriott option, we are Gold level members, and had a super nice stay. VERY NEW, everything is nice, clean and fresh. Staff was o.k., nothing special. Properly is in a good location, easy to get around the town. Lots of space, Lobby is very Bright and has nice touches, furnishings, sculptures, carpet, walls, paint. Private closed parking below is great. All equipment was in great shape and working well.

Room Tip: Any floor should be fine, not in a busy business area, sort of a neighborhood and the main street is...

Stayed at the Fairfield here a few times for business. This is by far the best Fairfield I have stayed at. It is fairly new and it looks it. Check in was good, the staff very friendly and the rooms are all suites so you can’t go wrong. The lobby area is nice; the complimentary breakfast is what you would expect for a Fairfield with the exception the lounge area is very nice and spacious. The gym doesn’t have much but was never crowded. The bar and bartender were great. Yes this Fairfield actually has a nice bar area with LCD TV's. There are a few local restaurants within walking distance such as a burger joint, sushi bar, and Chili's in the mall. They also have Chinese for delivery. I will stay here every time I travel to the Capitola area. Not far from Santa Cruz or downtown Capitola.

Room Tip: The best rooms would be overlooking the courtyard area.

This is your typical newer Fairfield property. Nice, clean and bright rooms. There is a funky jellyfish looking chandelier in the lobby which adds some flare. The underground parking is nice and you know your car is safe and secure for the night.

If you are in it for the free breakfast (remember you are paying for it!) you will find: out of regular coffee. Out of decaf coffee. All you can get is tea. Out of hard boiled eggs. Tons of activa and dannon low fat yogurt- way more than anybody would eat for breakfast. A couple apples. And those make it yourself waffle machines. I tried to talk to the manager (White male, with glasses) about the problem (specifically no eggs) and he said "what you want me to go get you some or something? (sarcastically)." He disappeared never to be seen again. I complained at the front desk and they said they had a "supplier" issue and said I could fill out a feedback card. I told them I would use Tripadvisor instead. I guess as a guest there you get to pay for their supplier issue and your issue is your issue- not the manager's issue.

Anyways, the next day I shifted my reservation next door, to the Best Western. Funny, because the Fairfield manager was over there chit-chatting with the front desk staff there. Anyways, the Best Western rooms are nice and clean too- though not quite as new or large as the Fairfield. Best Western was about $20 cheaper and they had everything in their breakfast bar. Better rooms= Fairfield. Better breakfast= Best Western.
