Please thank Julie for us! She made the stay far more pleasant than we could have imagined. She was so understanding and professional. You couldn't ask for a better receptionist. Thank you again for a very pleasant and unforgettable stay.

Hi Greg, Thanks for taking time to call out excellence when you see it! Julie is certainly one of the best in the industry! I would be lost without her and so would our guests. And it all comes naturally to her, she is just awesome! Thanks for choosing to stay at the Capitola Hotel. Please think of us again...

The Capitola Hotel is right in the heart of Capitola village. Across from the beach, great restaurants & cute shops. Complimentary coffee & snacks daily as well as Continental breakfast with yummy local breads $ pastries.

On the spur of the moment, a friend and I decided to go to Capitola/Soquel area for a mid-week get-away. We stayed in the Grand Cayman (2 queen-bed suite) and it was perfect! The beds were so comfortable we slept later than usual and woke refreshed. You can't beat the location as we walked everywhere to shop, enjoy a glass...

Best place to stay when visiting Capitola. Beach, shops, restaurants and bars are within walking distance of the hotel. The reason for four out of five is because this year's visit the lost Internet and cable for a half a day.

Excellent stay. Over accommodating staff. Location can not be beat. It is noisy in mornings, as they sweep the streets,(just close windows) BUT Capitola is an immaculate walking area, NO Sand, street & sidewalks cleaned I think everyday. Can't wait for my next stay in 2 weeks :)

Cute but very small rooms . Reception staff was friendly and helpful. . A very quaint little town. Breakfast on the patio was nice. Walked across the street for dinner on the oceanfront. Traffic was busy and parking crazy.

Hi Lori, Thanks so much for this awesome review and for sharing all of the details about our hotel. Folks don't always mention the patio and fireplace, but it is one of my favorite features! The team loves to turn it on for folks, so always ask if it isn't roaring and there is a slight chill in the air!...

Location is unbeatable. The staff is amazingly friendly. They made you feel like you were staying with family. Dinner at Shadow Brook was excellent. We had not been there in over 20 years. They sent a cute classic taxi to pick us up.

“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”
