If you are looking for a place to get away for a few days spending your nights in bed and your days out and about, this is a great place to be, especially since you are right in the heart of Capitola, and can just walk to restaurants and shops.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 7 March 2016

What a lovely little hotel! I recently spent the weekend with four women friends at this hotel. The location is in the heart of Capitola village - walking distance to everything. The beach is literally just across the street as are numerous restaurants and fun places to shop. My room was wonderful - in particular, the linens on the bed...

Dear Teri, What a super sweet review, thanks for taking time to write it. We loved having your group stay with us and can't wait to have you back.

From the very beginning, when I wanted to change the reservation date and Expedia would do nothing to help me, Corrie the owner and Julie the manager worked tirelessly to get me a refund. After several e-mails and phone calls they managed to make it happen; but not before offering to eat the cost of the cancellation themselves. I have...

First time in Capitola, so glad we stayed at the Capitola Hotel. Everything was fabulous! Paid extra from the parking, a bit pricey but worth it to not have to try to find street parking which was very limited given that it was a holiday weekend.

This hotel has a great location and walkability to the area. The Staff was wonderful, friendly and extremely helpful. Complimentary breakfast and coffee in the morning. My room was on the ground floor and as a single I was a little apprehensive and should have asked for another room, however they were full. We only stayed one night so not...

My husband and I stayed for our first quick getaway in Capitola. The hotel is the perfect location to get to walk in the village. The room is on the smaller size but the location and comfort make up for it. Rooms are very clean, comfy beds, and staff is welcoming. The parking pass is very convenient, with all the...

“We stayed in the only available room which faced the village street. Afraid we would be bothered by the street noise but what a treat to hear the Christmas music playing all day. The music added such a special touch to a very special getaway. We feel very blessed to have been able to experience this lovely town and stayed in this lovely hotel. Blessings”
