Comfortable, clean and good location. Perfect if you're on your way to San Francisco and looking for something good to stay at not in the city for a good price. The drive to SF takes about an hour. We had some transaction issues with payment but the guy at the reception quickly and professionally figured it out. He also gave... More

Booked this hotel for M-Th, but came up a day early. tried to call the front desk to see if we could arrive a day early. Driving in the mountains, caused the phone connection to drop, so we told the man, we would call him back. When we arrived there, he told me he had already added the additional room... More

I had an emergency situation and had to check in to the Quality Inn late. They quoted me $119 per night over the phone. I stayed two nights and left on an emergency flight back to Australia without looking at my receipt. When I returned home, I saw on my credit card statement I was charged $269.00 per night! I...

Stayed for a couple of days and enjoyed the quiet comfortable room. We enjoyed our stay. Comfortable and very reasonable. Breakfast included. No frills but had a micro and fridge in the room which was very convenient. Would stay there again.

We were here for the inaugural Hang 10/5 Surfers Path race. Quality Inn is conveniently located within walking distance to downtown beaches, cafes, and restaurants. It has ample parking in a quiet area and perfect for families. That also means there can be quite a bit of noise from kids playing in the pool. I don't know why the check... More

The hotel is a complex of 4 two story buildings with rooms. The complex is designed like other buildings in the area (woodsy setting) so it fits right in. Very nice peaceful setting with the trees and paths around and through the complex. The halls in each complex also have skylights to bring more light into the halls. Each room... More

This is a clean, decent place to stay. Nothing fancy. The beds were comfortable. And they had a light assortment of foods for breakfast. I got a good deal on this room and feel I got what I paid for. Would stay here again.

You drive up and it's very cute. The buildings look like apartments. Online the pool looked so nice and inviting. In reality it's a pretty small area. It looked like it needed a deep cleaning. The rooms are quite small. There's lots of roomy hallways in each building. Poorly executed layout. Walking out to the car at night it was... More

We planned a trip to Capitola for an overnight getaway. We planned a dinner at the Shadowbrook restaurant and this was very close. Close to the beach, town, and freeway, but the noise was not heard, even when the freeway was very busy. Bed was nice and comfortable. Very clean. Would stay there again.
