I book stays at Marriott property's to maintain my Gold Elite status, but the Santa Cruz area doesn't have any options until now. The hotel doesn't overlook the beach, but it is conveniently located. Eight minutes from downtown Santa Cruz, minutes from the village at Capitola and Aptos. We had a nice Jr. Suite with 2 Queens, refrig, separate seating...

My wife and I stayed here four nights in a suite with fireplace while visiting our daughter. Nice hotel, great location. Decent all you can eat breakfast if you've got kids, but lacking if you really enjoy food. The "scrambled" eggs are microwaved. The rooms aren't especially cheap, but they are certainly in line with the area's overall high prices....

We had a suite for a family of 5 adults. The suite was really nice, comfortable, clean. Breakfast where you can make your own waffles. However I have had better breakfast buffets at similar hotels, but there is something for everyone here too. Very helpful and serviceminded staff. Indoor parking.

Nice little place for a short stay. This hotel is near the beach, boardwalk, and other attractions. I have stayed here off and on for several years. And I will probably return for business, recreation, etc.

We were looking for a hotel last-minute in Santa Cruz but it was the weekend of the Wharf to Wharf race and everything was booked. So we started looking in Capitola and this was one of the options.

Unexpectedly surprised by the Quality of our accommodations. We enjoyed the fireplace, flat screen tvs, jacuzzi tub, walk-in double shower and the excellent location. Very easy drive down to the beachside restaurants and shops. Our accommodations made us feel right at home and we quickly forgot about the main reason we headed up to Santa Cruz, to enjoy a couple...

For a chain suites hotel, this one is a cut above. Clean, comfortable, nice staff and great location. We enjoyed local restaurants and the walk into Capitola Village was an easy one. With so few options in Capitola, this property stands out.
