I stayed in three different rooms here over a short period of time-- it had nothing to do with hotel management-- and I only mention it because I was impressed that, during a very busy time, there wasn't a single thing wrong with any of the rooms and each was very clean. I totally agree that the parking is easy. Capitola is a very safe town only a short drive from Santa Cruz. There's a small shopping center next door to this hotel with a deli, a bagel shop, a grocery store, and an honest-to-goodness independent bookstore (next I'll claim there was a dinosaur too, but really, the independent bookstore is there!). Further into this shopping center is a taco shop and a laundromat (and other stores, too, I think a hardware store an chocolate store). A block away is a mall with Target, Kohl's, Sears, Macy's. It's about 20 minutes drive to the ultra-awesome Nisene Marks state park.
Yes, it is not by the beach. May I respectfully suggest that folks consider using Google maps in order to help them evaluate advertising claims?
