Reviewed 7 July 2015

We stayed on a Sunday and Monday night with our two kids. This hotel is within minutes to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, Capitola Beach, and nearby restaurants. We enjoyed the free morning breakfasts and the heated pool at night. A great and clean place for the family! We will definitely book this hotel on our next trip to Santa Cruz.

first impression when we walked into the very clean smelling room was great. It was a comfortable room with new fresh decor. Comfortable sitting area, good little work desk and comfy bed. We had the king suite room 303. With in a few min we realized there was a loud rhythmic humming from the ceiling. It sounded like a fan...

Dear KerryD1969 I wanted to thank you for your being our guest, for your review and your honesty. All large buildings have fans and machinery on rooftops which are usually very quiet and unnoticeable. I wanted to apologize to you for noises which prevented you from enjoying a peaceful night. We did immediately offer a different room location for you...

We went to a wedding on the July 4th weekend. The hotel is close to the Santa Cruz resort where the wedding was. The staff was very helpful and friendly, and the rooms are very clean. We enjoyed our walk to the beach after dinner. This is a wonder place to stay. Great location!

One of the few places I stay that consistently hits a 10 out of 10. Very nice and well maintained rooms that are always exceptionally clean. Location is ideal for Capitola fun with plenty of diversions nearby. Safe and plentiful free parking. Nice lounge and adequate breakfast buffet.

Stayed here a night after the holiday and it was empty. They gave my a choice of rooms. We came in late and left the next am so we didn't experience a lot of the hotel. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and varied (considering it is included with stay). Plenty of parking underneath and a convenient location.

This is a great property. You are 1.5 miles from the water and all the cool restaurants and shops on the beach and you are walking distance to plenty other cool restaurants and shops. The hotel is very pretty but could use some more thought; the breakfast room is upstairs with a beautiful balcony and fireplace. The lounge is on...

We have often stayed in a nearby resort on the beach that we enjoyed even though it was pricey, but this year when they raised their rates by 30% I thought it would be a good idea to look for something less expensive. I had noticed the Fairfield go in and checked it out on TripAdvisor so we booked 3...

We had a large room with two queens and a pull out sofa. The children enjoyed the pool and hot tub. The hotel is nice, but not luxury. This is not right next to the beach nor the main Capitola Beach area. There are shops nearby that you can walk to.

After reading all the great reviews about this place and the staff I was very disappointed.
