We have stayed at the Inn at Depot Hill twice before and we are never disappointed. We tried the Sissinghurst room this time and the bed was so soft and comfortable it's like sleeping on a cloud. The spa tub outside was so relaxing and private my husband and I loved it! Breakfast in the morning was orange zest crunchy...

Such a great stay! The staff was amazing--when I had car trouble and had to reschedule my stay last minute they were so helpful and accommodating. Upon arrival I was treated to a warm reception and the room--wow! Each room has a theme, and I loved the inviting ambiance of the railroad baron room. The breakfast was terrific, and the...

The wine and cheese happy hour on the patio is a great way to end the day. Loved everything about this place. The front desk was very attentive and helpful. Our well appointed and clean Room was beautiful and our private back patio made the room feel much larger. I highly recommend and will return.

Have stayed here before and always love it. Stayed in March 2014 and requested a gluten free breakfast if possible. They did provide several gluten free things each morning and everything was delicious. The rooms are comfortable and beautiful and the location great.

This is our second time staying in the Paris Room. A lovely mid week get away from San Francisco and we decided on it because of the special price offered by Trip Advisor. Lovely attention to detail. Clean and fabulous comfort to bed. Very good breakfast in the morning. Submitted by N. King in San Francisco

I was very excited to stay at this hotel based on a friend's recommendation. We were going to be in the area for a birthday party and decided to make a weekend of it. The Stratford upon Avon room was available on their website and I planned to stay in this room based on price. I called the hotel because...

I am so sorry hear of your experience. In discussing this with the Inn Manager I truly feel this was an unfortunate mis-communication. As a small intimate inn, we strive to be conscientious of all our guests to maximize their personal getaway experience. It is true that our inn does not offer cribs and that our inn is a historic...

"The Inn" ended up being the perfect choice for a getaway weekend. Along with dinner at Shadowbrook (they'll send a car to taxi you to the restaurant and back), and a day trip to see the elephant seals we had a great and relaxing weekend. So glad I read the Tripadvisor reviews! The Inn is beautifully decorated, our room was...

My teenage daughter and I decided to do a coastal trip including Capitola and were pleased to stay at the Inn at Depot Hill again. We stayed a year before and truly enjoyed it. Pictures can not even begin to show the elegance and attention to detail these rooms have. Last time we stayed in the Sissinghurst themed room and...

After all the chaos of the holidays my husband and I were in need of some time away. This was our first stay at Depot Hill and we loved it. We stayed in the Capitola Beach Room which was perfect - soothing colors and beautiful decor. The Inn was nice and quiet which was perfect for us and a short...
