Wonderful location!! Loved the coziness of this hotel. It was a louder due to age of property but not enough to keep us from sleeping. Perfect location, nice little walk across a very cute bridge to all pubs and restaurants. Will definitely return!

We stayed in room 131 which was an ocean view that sleeps 5. It's on the upper level and right next to the parking lot - which was perfect for loading and unloading. The unit was bright and clean. The bedding, bathroom and towels etc. exceeded my expectations. You need to remember that this is an old hotel that's on...

Thank you for the great review. I'm glad you enjoyed your time in Capitola and hope you'll be staying with us again soon. That is one of our most popular rooms.

We stayed in Room 133. Nightmare. Backs up to street and is bottom unit. It is fairly large...but, just didn't look or smell clean. We were uncomfortable for both nights. The beds were comfortable but it just felt dirty. The bathroom was dated and small and just didn't look clean. The noise at night was terrible. There was a gate...

We just got back from a great family get-a-way. We stayed in room 129. We had hoped for a room.with a balcony, but it turned out it didn't make a huge difference. We still had a great view. People have to take into consideration that this is a historic hotel, not the Marriott. This place is great. It is a...

If you're looking for a beachfront hotel that is walking distance to great food and shops, then this is the place. If you're looking for a quiet, quaint hotel, I suggest you look elsewhere. This is a funky looking property that is brightly colored and it's proximity to both the beach and shops/restaurants can't be beat. Now, for the downside-it's...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We appreciate the feedback. I'm sorry you room was so noisy. Staying in a ground floor room when you have noisy people above you is no fun.

My new favorite place in the world ! This hotel on the beach has everything you could want in a vacation. You can park your car for a few days and walk everywhere. There are shops, restaurants, beach, river, and the room even has a kitchen ! I even own an Inn myself and I see the great value here....
