The Monarch Cove Inn is beautifully situated on the bluff over looking Capitola. It is a beautiful and somewhat easy walk to the beach. The views are gorgeous from the main house. We stayed in a studio cottage in the back that had a private deck and yard. There was also a hot tub (not advertised) but it wasn't functioning.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The Inn provides a beautiful tray of pastries that can't be resisted, as well as yogurt, fruit, coffee and juice. We asked for extra coffee and they happily brought it for us.
I don't know how the main house is, and it may be very different from the cottages, but I was surprised that the towels, curtains and bedding were most likely purchased from Target. The carpet was worn and smelled like cat. The window sills were dusty and the bath was worn. I was under the impression that pride of ownership was missing as least in that cottage.
Regardless of that, the weekend and time spent in Capitola was wonderful.
