The first thing when you arrive you will appreciate the friendliness of the staff.The Central location in the village is perfect for walking to shops and restaurants. Take the time to stroll the wharf.

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...

We loved this place. Great location with a very friendly attentive staff. We loved that our car was safe in an enclosed garage next door. The room was lovely and very clean. We loved being able to walk everywhere. The shops and the restaurants and beach were right in front of us, never needed to use the car. We were...

We stayed in the Martinique room for 1 night in January. PROS: Perfect location for visiting Capitola. The bed was very comfortable. Front desk staff were very nice and helpful CONS: Our room had no window that you could see out of or that would open. Daylight was thru a glass block wall. The only way to get fresh air...

We take every point of feedback very seriously and I aim to clarify the parking situation any way I can as the parking fee of $40/day is not a requirement, it is an option.

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.

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.

“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”
