Recently stayed 4 nights at the Fairfield Inn & Suites in Capitola By the Sea. This hotel is relatively new (maybe 2 yrs old) and very reasonably priced for the Capitola/Santa Cruz area. Our party of 3 adults stayed quite comfortably in a 2 bedroom queen suite. Altho the 2 room suite was not hugh, it had plently of room and was well appointed. There was a nice sized bedroom w/two queen beds, a separate sitting area with a desk, two chairs and a couch that made into a queen bed, a nice sized bathroom with a tub/shower combo, and a small in-room microwave oven, refrigerator, and coffee maker. Both the bed and sitting rooms had nice flat screen tvs. The hotel has a cocktail lounge adjacent to the lobby which offered daily happy hour specials and there was a very nice breakfast area on the mezzanine level of the hotel with indoor and patio seating. The daily complementary breakfast was served between 6 - 10 am and was more than adequate with a nice selection of breakfast foods which you served yourself. A 24-hr self serve coffee and tea station was also available in the main lobby. Staff at this hotel were extremely friendly and accommodating and maid service was excellant (thank you, Rosa!); rooms were very clean and very quite! Heard no hallway or outside noise. This hotel also has a secured, free underground parking garage which is a plus as street parking in Capitola can be challenging. The hotel is very conveniently located to all attractions in the Capitola/Santa Cruz area and is within easy driving distance to Capitola Village, the Santa Cruz Boardwalk and Santa Cruz Wharf. I would definitely stay here again when visiting the Capitola/Santa Cruz area and would highly recommend this hotel to family and friends. Its a very good value! Only negative would be the bathroom towels; very thin and felt like they were ten years old! Hotel could definitely use an upgrade in this area. Tip: Public parking in Capitola is very limited; mostly 2 hr metered parking w/no extensions. The Pacific Cove Parking Lot located behind Capitola City Hall offers long-term metered parking for $.50 per hr w/no time limit and is open daily 8 am - 8 pm. Lot is short walking distance to Capitola Village; Capitola Village is quaint with lots of shops, restaurants and a public beach area. Also, don't miss the West Cliff Drive in Santa Cruz. Very scenic with lots of pullout areas where you can stop, get out, walk around and enjoy the beautiful coastal views and, it's free!
