We just got back from a great family get-a-way. We stayed in room 129. We had hoped for a room.with a balcony, but it turned out it didn't make a huge difference. We still had a great view. People have to take into consideration that this is a historic hotel, not the Marriott. This place is great. It is a...

If you're looking for a beachfront hotel that is walking distance to great food and shops, then this is the place. If you're looking for a quiet, quaint hotel, I suggest you look elsewhere. This is a funky looking property that is brightly colored and it's proximity to both the beach and shops/restaurants can't be beat. Now, for the downside-it's...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We appreciate the feedback. I'm sorry you room was so noisy. Staying in a ground floor room when you have noisy people above you is no fun. We understand that the noise can carry in a historical building like this and try to impress upon our guests the need to...

My new favorite place in the world ! This hotel on the beach has everything you could want in a vacation. You can park your car for a few days and walk everywhere. There are shops, restaurants, beach, river, and the room even has a kitchen ! I even own an Inn myself and I see the great value here....

So on the outside, the location seems to good to be true. Because it is. The rooms are funky good in that they have a small living room space w/ a fully functional kitchen and a semi-private bed area, would have beed great for an extended stay, or lots of family or friends. They are funky bad due to the...

The location of this hotel was great. When it was time to go to bed I felt uncomfortable. It didn't feel clean like the marriott hotel which we stayed at the night before.

Hi, I'm sorry for your negative experience. Thank you for the feedback. I can't respond specifically since your stay was five months ago and I don't know your name or the room you stayed in etc.. We take any such reports very seriously. Any time we've had a guest even hint at something of this nature we strip and carefully...

The Venetian is all about the view. Situated right on the sand at the lovely Capitola Beach, this historic motel/lodge is a fun place to stay. The proximity to all the charming shops and restaurants in Capitola is very appealing. The management is very helpful and friendly. We had a 1 bdrm unit near the office, which unfortunately is also...
