What you can find in this hotel? Everything you need for stay. There are confortable bed, mini fridge, and microwave, close to some shopping and a great sushi place, shower head is higher than the normal places (I am 6'2"), close to Gail's bakery, heated pool, hot breakfast, huge room, free shuttle to downtown, free Internet. And very friendly and always ready to help, managers of this place, Jenny and Ank Chauhan. They provided us a perfect customer service, we were satisfied in all requests we've asked for.
We would like to recommend this place for everyone who are going to visit Capitola by the Sea. You will enjoy this quiet and peaceful place relaxing in your room, or visiting downtown Capitola and their beaches without any hassle of parking and crowd problems. From hotel till downtown Capitola and beaches is only 10 minutes walk.

Room Tip: We had our room in block N3 on first floor, and there was a clean and quiet room, so we would recommend this block to choose a good room there.

Even though the hotel needs updating, it was clean, comfortable, safe, the staff are accommodating and the location was within biking distance to the transition area of my race. The hotel is within walking distance to a great sushi restaurant, grocery store and coffee house!

Room Tip: my room was located towards the rear of the hotel property and it was very quiet.

Condo style accomodations. The room was very nice with a attached patio. Breakfast was one of the best that I have ever had. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Close to shopping if you want to pickup something at the store (Nob Hill grocery store). We will definitely stay here whenever we go to Santa Cruz area. Maximum of 20 minutes to Santa Cruz.

Room Tip: Ask for ground floor if you don't want to use stairs.

Pros- confortable bed, mini fridge, and microwave, close to some shopping and a great sushi place, shower head is higher than the normal places (I am 6'2"), close to Gail's bakery, heated pool, hot breakfast, huge room, free shuttle to downtown, free Internet.
Cons - not very clean, carpet is very old, first duvet had a blood stain, call the front desk and they brought another one, but did not changed it, they just handed to my wife.
Bathroom wasn't the cleanest, had some renovations done but not finished, toilet very low to the gound.

Stayed: September 2012, travelled with family

My family and I stayed over Labor Day weekend (9/1 through 9/3, 2012) and had a good time. The rooms are basic and dated, but if you are looking for a quick and easy place to stay in Capitola, this is a good hotel to consider. The room was clean and it had all the hot water we needed. One bonus for the hotel is that is a one block (maybe less) walk to the beach shuttle (not affiliated with the hotel) that takes you to downtown Capitola, right by the beach. This is a nice feature because on weekends during the summer, parking near the beach is very difficult. It is also close enough to downtown to walk, which my family easily did one day. The hotel has a small pool (heated) that is fun for smaller kids. The breakfast was pretty typical for these types of hotels, but a good way to save money rather than eating out. My family would stay here again on our next trip.

Room Tip: The hotel is on the smaller side, so all the rooms are pretty equal. Rooms facing away from the pool would probably be the quietest, although rooms on the back side face the freeway.
