....place could use a bit of updating but overall, just a great place. You can walk to the Village from the hotel which is a huge benefit given Capitola can get very busy and parking fills up quickly. The staff at this hotel are super friendly and best of all, some of the units allow dogs. Overall, our family had a great experience at this hotel.

Room Tip: I would go with either the 1 or 2 bedroom cottage. A bit more privacy. If you want a view, then get a room in the main building.

Two things are important when staying at a bed and breakfast: the bed and the breakfast. Both were fantastic. I slept like a baby in the very comfortable bed in the Victorian Room and a delicious continental breakfast was served TO me on my semi-private porch with a stunning view. The next day when it rained, I was able to still enjoy the view with my breakfast in my room at a very spacious kitchen table. Again, it was so nice to be served breakfast, almost literally in bed.

Unfortunately, the bathrooms left a bit to be desired. Very cold (although a space heater was provided) and a not very welcoming bathtub and shower. The water pressure was fine, but the shower head was outdated and coming out of the wall and didn't provide a concentrated stream. I would have loved a soak on the cold rainy day that I visited Monarch Cove Inn, but alas, was not able to do so.

All in all, it's a great place. Beautiful surroundings, you can't beat the view, and we were treated very well by the staff.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view...it's absolutely stunning.

This was my second time staying at this property. The location is amazing, just a short 10 min. walk to Capitola Village. The rooms are cozy and the breakfast is pretty standard. The one complaint I have is that the bathrooms are freezing and there isn't a heater in them.

Room Tip: Bring your own electric heater for the bathroom and a CD or two for the player.

I have stayed here once before in the ocean view room. This time we had a dog and another person so we stayed in the carriage house. This is a wonderful place, very big with two full bedrooms, large bath and kitchen and living area. You even have your own large hot tub. The beds were wonderful and the service was also impeccable. I highly recommend this place and will certainly be back again.

The Monarch Cove Inn is one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. The room was gorgeous and the view of the Monterrey Bay was breathtaking. I have family in Santa Cruz, and every time I visit them, I will be staying @ Monarch!

Room Tip: Ask about rooms with a view of the bay.
