Fairfield Inn & Suites Santa Cruz - Capitola
Ranked #3 of 4 Hotels in Capitola
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 November 2013

This is one of the nicest hotels for the money we have stayed in California. It's 2 years old, beautifully done with lovely art and décor. But the real value is in the staff who couldn't have been more helpful. The front desk went out of their way to insure we had a wonderful stay. Features that were outstanding included underground gated parking, excellent security features, a bar/lounge with happy hour, free breakfast that had EVERYTHING and wasn't processed foods, rooms with living rooms including refrigerator & microwave. 2 TV sets, sofa, desk with free internet, comfortable desk chair, excellent lighting. The bathrooms are spacious and well appointed. The hotel is close to US1 and restaurants & shopping mall very close by. Close to charming Village of Capitola and convenient to downtown Santa Cruz.

We had a very nice suite with the balcony, a giant size whirlpool tub and double shower; very romantic for our anniversary. Room had a mini-fridge, microwave, coffee pot, even had facial wipes (rate was $239). View overlooked surrounding area (can't see the ocean from there). The breakfast was great! Fairfield also has nice bar lounge area, and mini-market for snacks. Clean, tastefully decorated, firm bed. Rather quiet, we slept great and would stay here again.

Room Tip: Bring your own pillows & wine glasses.

This a one of the best Fairfields I have had the pleasure to stay in. From the location, a not very long walk to the beach, to the wonderful decor of the lobby and rooms, and most important a staff and management that truly care for their guests. I have stayed multiple times in the past year and always have had a fantastic experience. The rooms are all great, try to upgrade to the whirlpool rooms if available, come with fireplaces also. I always stay here if I am in the area! If there is anything that could be improved it would be the eggs at the included buffet.

Our family of 5 had a room with 2 queen beds and a sofa sleeper. The property was in great condition, and the pool and hot tub area were lovely. We were the only guests who thought it was warm enough to swim in early October! The check-in staff were pleasant, and able to recommend a local burger bar (Betty's Burgers) which we enjoyed strolling to. The breakfast was lovely, with a good selection of fruit, cereal, pastries, waffles and hot food. We only stayed one night, as our road trip beckoned, but we would have stayed longer had time permitted.

We stayed for 2 nights in October in a 2-queen room and couldn't have been happier. Our room also had a sofa bed and gave us plenty of room for our little family. Check in was quick and easy and the customer service at the front desk was always delightful. The breakfast area and the attendant were fantastic. They had 3 waffle makers (no waiting), a variety of items that were always stocked, and the eating area itself was very large - plenty of room! There were even a few tables out on the balcony to enjoy breakfast outside. The swimming pool and hot tub were clean and enjoyable for a warm October day. Parking is secured and underneath the hotel with access using your room key. The hotel appeared brand new, and there wasn't anything that we could even come close to complaining about or being disappointed with. Our request to be on the top floor was honored, and we did not hear any noise from other rooms. We will definitely stay again if we are in the area.

We stayed here for 3 nights in September, and couldn't be more pleased. We were immediately offered an upgrade upon check-in, didn't have to ask. The rooms are spacious and very clean. Beds are ultra comfortable, perfect after a long day of driving, surfing and beach play. Parking is secured underground, accessible via the elevator. Breakfast is one of the best Marriott spreads we've seen. Lots to choose from for every type of diet - and the breakfast room is large enough to hold the large rush of people that typically happens at one point each morning. Just blocks from the beach and some of the best surfing and sunsets around! Stay here - you won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: Top floor, end of hall away from the elevator - no noise

This is a brand new hotel, or at least it appears to be. We called the morning of check in and asked if we could get in early to change for a wedding we were attending later that afternoon. Our request was immediately accommodated. In fact, we were told, " your room is ready now." Beautiful, immaculate, but not fancy. Wish we had stayed here during our entire trip to California. Breakfast was good. Pool looked inviting but we did not swim. Walking distance to a number of restaurants and the beach where you can watch the surfers do their thing.

Room Tip: Only two floors in this hotel.
