My husband and I booked this hotel for one night to check out the Capitola Wine Festival and boardwalk in early September. This hotel is in the perfect spot, only about a mile away from the SantaCruz Beach Boardwalk and a few blocks from the downtown district. Our main goal was to stay at a comfortable, clean, hotel, and that's exactly what we got.
There is complimentary breakfast served until 10am, the usual toast, muffins, bacons, and eggs. If you want to book a room with a view of the city, you might want to request that ahead of time. Our room faced a brick wall, which we thought was quite funny, but as mentioned earlier, we were just looking for a central area hotel. This brick wall was not a deal breaker for us.
If you stay here, definitely check out the downtown area. We were surprised to find plenty of restaurants with entertainment, from pizza dough tossing waiters to jazz players. There's a wide variety of restaurants and unique shops to visit, so don't miss out:) Word of advice: Bring plenty of quarters for metered parking. That's basically everywhere, including the boardwalk, unless you want to pay $12 to park in the parking lot.More
