Our stay at the Capitola Hotel was the highlight of our trip!!! The ambiance upon entering the hotel, the immaculate room we stayed in, the friendliness of the staff...all made this an amazing stay. The continental breakfast was spot on, not too heavy for a day of exploring beautiful Capitola. We absolutely cannot wait to return!!!!!

Loved staying here! Amazing rooms, beautiful location, and delicious breakfast. Love it. Also lots of great restaurants and a beautiful beach steps from the front of the hotel. Perfect location to chill at the beach all day then come back rinse off the sand and go out for drinks and dinner!

We enjoyed our stay very much. Although you are given a parking pass, it's luck of the draw to get parking close enough to unload, and we received a ticket even though we were in a spot that was supposed to be acceptable. We ended up getting it taken care of, but an unexpected hassle. The location is definitely in...

Hi Tiffany, Thanks a ton for taking time to tell folks about your stay. That darn parking...it is a crazy side effect of our amazing little, tiny village. We are working closely with the City to change our parking situation. While I was very upset about your particular situation when you were here, it did give us opportunity to engage...

Perfect location. We were able to walk everywhere....restaurants, shops, and last but certainly not least, the beach!! When we needed a little down time the hotel was in easy walking distance. We especially enjoyed the wine and snacks offered each afternoon. This was a time when we could meet other guests and wind down before the evening began. We plan...

I was so excited to try this hotel. HOWEVER, this was one of my worst stays ever! It started with having to park several blocks away up a hill. Then the customer service is atrocious! The rooms are very small with exposed cables and our sink was clogged. If it were not for the terrible service, I would rate this...

This stay was a Christmas gift to my son and daughter in law. According to my son "best gift ever". The room was lovely, the bed comfortable and the location can not be beat!! After lounging in their comfortable bed until checkout time, coffee and a stroll on the Esplanade was a bit hit!!

“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”
