My husband and I just spent a lovely time at the Inn at Depot Hill this past weekend. We stayed in the Delft Room which was absolutely gorgeous and spacious, with a sitting room with fireplace, bedroom, large bathroom, and a private patio with a hot tub. The bed and pillows were exquisitely comfy as feather beds and pillows are....

We spent two relaxing nights here recently, and were treated like royalty. This is a wonderful honeymoon or anniversary destination. You can walk around hilly Capitola easily and get down to the wharf and beach in just minutes. The most impressive part of this B&B is the level of service and the food, which was abundant and delicious. We had...

Stayed here for the first time have stayed at many of the hotels in the greater Santa Cruz / Monterey Bay Area. The Inn at Depot Hill is the best. Not inexpensive or a travel bargain; but truly first class with lots of amenities including a home cooked breakfast, wine and snacks on the evening and Sherry and home baked...

Wonderful location, a easy walk to downtown Capitola. Rooms are all different and wonderfully decorated, and the service is A +++. We loved the place and will be returning on a regular basis. Oh, and the breakfast-WOW talk about yummy

Had a wonderful long weekend getaway at The inn on Depot Hill. The room was beautiful and cozy. Kara provided a wonderful and informative tour of our accommodations upon arrival. The Inn had provided contacts for us to be able to book an in-room couples massage- their recommendation was spot on! We took our daily breakfasts in our room- and...

Everything about this Inn (billed as a B&B) is excellent. Room, service, breakfast, common rooms. It is part of a small group of inns on the Central California coast. It is almost too perfect--meaning it is remarkably cold. There is not an innkeeper or b&b owner as you typically have who takes some interest in the guests. Instead there are...

We don't stay at B&Bs very often, because they tend to be expensive and sometimes a bit peculiar. We were very impressed with Depot Hill and would certainly return. They have a special pricing offer leading up to the holidays. Depot Hill has several themed rooms. We chose the Library, because our adult daughter was traveling with us. She had...

This was our first visit to Capitola. The Inn looked very inviting online. When we arrived at 3 pm our room was not ready. We had to wait 30 minutes until it was available. We were told breakfast was at 8 am at the earliest, but that pastries and coffee were available at 7 am for early risers. We were...

From the king-size bed, a rarity in my experience of b&bs, to the fresh roses in our Capitola room, which was lovely and spacious, to the really excellent food and service, I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The inn is a quarter mile from the beach and the charming village, with excellent restaurants like the Paradise Beach Grill.
