“Romantic Getaway”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

We have stayed at the Inn at Depot Hill in Capitola twice, and we would not want to stay anywhere else in that area. It is a quiet, charming, comfortable place to stay. The staff is so accommodating, and they really take the time to make sure you have everything you need. The rooms are beautifully decorated with a different theme, and makes for a very romantic getaway. We look forward to our next stay.

Room Tip: There is a photograph album in the lobby of all the rooms, and it is hard to choose, as they are all...

This B & B is our fav. You can get away from Silicon Valley and take a night to relax. Such a beautiful Inn. Have stayed twice in two different rooms. Breakfast is great and you can ask through the village from the Inn.

The worst thing about our room, Valencia, was the shower. It was very strange. To get in one had to climg up a couple stairs then down into a deeper well. Semmed very dangerous and assume some people might not be agile enough to do it. The TV was impossible for us to work even after a lesson from staff. There were instructions but they weren't accurate so no news for us to watch once we turned off the tv. They assigned us parking which was very limited. We had to go to the office because there was a car in our spot. It was one of their employees. There was a plunger in the bathroom next to the toilet. That made us a bit concerned that we would have to use it. There was noisy construction going on next door but that wasn't the hotels fault but it added to our discomfort. I must commend them on a deliscious breafast and treats they put out often.

My husband and I spent one night in the 'Paris' room. The room is cozy and charming. The room has a two sided fireplace, French doors that lead to the courtyard, a lovely bathroom with a large, dual head shower! Just outside the room there is a half bath for all guests, however, I never saw anyone else use it. It was useful for my husband ; )
Staff at the Inn are very accommodating, friendly and welcoming. The afternoon appetizers and wine, the evening treats and dessert wines were a nice surprise!
The location of the B & B is within walking distance to town, (which, by the way, is the cutest beach town ever, shops, restaurants, etc...) Walking into town is a breeze, it's downhill. The walk back is uphill, but it's not too strenuous. Besides it's good exercise! Fyi... we're in our mid -50's.
Wish we could have stayed longer : ( However, we were heading further North to visit family. Next time we plan to make Capitola a destination. We will definitely stay at the 'Inn at Depot Hill'!!

The village of Capitola is so tiny it is hard to imagine a world class Inn located near the
town center. Perched on Monterey Avenue above the town this gorgeous Victorian B&B
has 12 rooms and superb service. My room, Paris was gorgeous. Black and Cream toile
fabric on the walls with black and white photographs of the City of Light over the fireplace.
My room was on the enclosed courtyard so all I heard was the sound of the fountain. I enjoyed
readingon the patio before a concert at the beach and enjoying a coffee following a divine breakfast at the cafe table on the terrace before shopping in the little town. Dream vacation!

Room Tip: I saw other rooms. My other favorite was Portofino!

This is a wonderful B&B in the lovely little coastal town of Capitola. It is right up the street from town and the beach. It is a great beachtown and this B&B makes you feel like you are right at home. My friend and I travelled together and so we needed one room with two beds. We got the Library room. It is so quaint. It has a library area with two sitting chairs,table,lamp and bookshelves. There is a queen size bed on a level below that and then go up some stairs and their is a twin bed. It was so perfect for us because we each had our privacy. They bring you breakfast in bed if you request it the night before. They have wonderful food in the evening with wine and also there is a dessert that comes out later on. If and when you go to Capitola check this place out. Good price for the value

Room Tip: This room was on the street level and faced the front which is very noisy. But with the air on it d...

The facility is nice, well-kept-up, and service is very good. But our room (Library) had a skylight with no cover that made the room quite bright at sunrise (5:30 am), plus a couple smaller windows with only lacey covers. And the noise level from traffic outside is pretty high. Located at a three way intersection and lots of traffic noise and not good enough windows to keep the noise level down. If traffic noise and light don't bother you, it's a great place. For us, it was not so good.
