“Everything was excellent”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

We stayed for 2 nights in October in a 2-queen room and couldn't have been happier. Our room also had a sofa bed and gave us plenty of room for our little family. Check in was quick and easy and the customer service at the front desk was always delightful. The breakfast area and the attendant were fantastic. They had 3 waffle makers (no waiting), a variety of items that were always stocked, and the eating area itself was very large - plenty of room! There were even a few tables out on the balcony to enjoy breakfast outside. The swimming pool and hot tub were clean and enjoyable for a warm October day. Parking is secured and underneath the hotel with access using your room key. The hotel appeared brand new, and there wasn't anything that we could even come close to complaining about or being disappointed with. Our request to be on the top floor was honored, and we did not hear any noise from other rooms. We will definitely stay again if we are in the area.

We stayed here for 3 nights in September, and couldn't be more pleased. We were immediately offered an upgrade upon check-in, didn't have to ask. The rooms are spacious and very clean. Beds are ultra comfortable, perfect after a long day of driving, surfing and beach play. Parking is secured underground, accessible via the elevator. Breakfast is one of the best Marriott spreads we've seen. Lots to choose from for every type of diet - and the breakfast room is large enough to hold the large rush of people that typically happens at one point each morning. Just blocks from the beach and some of the best surfing and sunsets around! Stay here - you won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: Top floor, end of hall away from the elevator - no noise

This is a brand new hotel, or at least it appears to be. We called the morning of check in and asked if we could get in early to change for a wedding we were attending later that afternoon. Our request was immediately accommodated. In fact, we were told, " your room is ready now." Beautiful, immaculate, but not fancy. Wish we had stayed here during our entire trip to California. Breakfast was good. Pool looked inviting but we did not swim. Walking distance to a number of restaurants and the beach where you can watch the surfers do their thing.

Room Tip: Only two floors in this hotel.

Stayed here in a week in September and the place was great for me. I have stayed here several times in the past and have had good experiences. The rooms have always been clean, and the high speed internet is excellent. The only problem I had was hearing foot steps overhead, I was on the 2nd floor the first stay. I told the front desk of my concern and they immediately changed my room to the 3rd floor. I'm a light sleeper so this is a big deal for me! The breakfast is free, and has decent items (limited hot items). The hotel also has a free newspaper, and coffee in the lobby.There is a self parking lot at the bottom of the hotel, but it fills up fast, if you have a large vehicle it can be a bit challenging if you come back late at night. I'm definitely going to come back in the future.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the third floor

Stayed here one night using Marriott points. Have stayed at a lot of Fairfield Inn's, however this is the best. Great secure parking under hotel. Fantastic breakfast with a bar on site. Comfortable rooms. Our room had 2 queens with a pullout couch. Very nice rooms and the hotel overall was great. Really nice widescreen TV. A little off the beaten path in the heart of Capitola but a short drive to beaches. About 5-10 minutes from Santa Cruz

Lovely clean hotel with good service! The room was big and comfi. The location is perfect.
It's a 10 minute walk from the hotel to the beach.

We had a great time!!

Only one thing to mention: The breakfast is ok, but the choice was very small. So after our first breakfast we deceided to eat elsewhere.

This hotel is in a great location. We like quiet places where we can get away from the hustle and bustle of tourist attractions. This fit well for us as it is about 1.5 miles or so from Capitola
Village. For the more physically active, it's a good walk to local shops, restaurants, and the beach. The only minus for us was the bed was a bit too hard, but that's largely a personal preference. We will be back (maybe with a foam mattress topper)!
