Nice good size room. Tidy and clean. Would defiantly stay again. The breakfast was great and good way to fuel up for the day. Is close to town and in a nice quiet area. Staff friendly and helpful. Surrounds were nice had nothing to complain about and enjoyed my stay

We love this place. At the affordable end of the spectrum, the rooms are basic but large, clean and comfortable. The property is located central to everything but is set apart in a quiet area surrounded by trees. Each room has a balcony that is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the ocean breeze. The staff are helpful and...

We were concerned about the cost in relationship to the other hotels in the area. What a great find! Yes, it's an older property but with some new make-overs , it's very nice. The only down-side was the traffic noise from the freeway(we were in Blg. 3 upstairs) Will stay again!

This is an old building that has been updated. Bed was comfortable enough, little firm. Room was clean, breakfast was good. Quiet hotel off the main road. Good size room. Small pool close walk to Sushi Garden (great food). Will stay here again.

Long over due review......... We've stayed at the Quality Inn and Suites Capitola By the Sea at least 5-6 times. It seems as though half of the times we've stayed, the motel has been under new management/ownership. Quality Inns is the latest owner, which has resulted in some physical improvements of the property. The "Inn" is actually a motel which...

I had a full house Christmas eve and my parents needed a quite place so I recommended that they stay here (it's very close). To my surprise they raved about the hotel! It worked well for them and they found it convenient, clean, accommodating staff and I really think that they enjoyed the breakfast because they were late coming back...

This property has been very nicely upgraded since Quality Inn and current ownership took over. The hotel has been recently remodeled, with large rooms, good quality bed, nice linens and towels. The location is very, very quiet but with easy access off Hwy 1. Easy walk to the village and wonderful places to eat (read: Gayle's Bakery). Cleaning staff was...

My husband and I stayed here on a business trip in Capitola. I'm not really sure why the other reviews are so terrible, I felt that the hotel was just fine, not great or super fancy but for the price, it served its purpose, a nice, clean place to stay. The bed was comfortable, flat screen TV, microwave, fridge, and...

First, let me state that the front desk and breakfast staff were friendly, helpful and on point with their customer service. Its the housekeeping and general property condition that I would like to address. We stayed for two nights. When we checked in, I noticed that our room was surface clean with clean linens but overall it was worn and...
