Ferndale, California
Reviewed 27 December 2013

The Venetian is all about the view. Situated right on the sand at the lovely Capitola Beach, this historic motel/lodge is a fun place to stay. The proximity to all the charming shops and restaurants in Capitola is very appealing. The management is very helpful and friendly. We had a 1 bdrm unit near the office, which unfortunately is also...

Reviewed 14 November 2013

This was my first visit, having been referred to the Venetian by two co-workers. I got a great price on the room and stayed Monday-Friday. The room was decent and clean. Nice "living room" area and the kitchen came in handy. Had a view of the ocean and a balcony. Yes, there is a roof to look at in front...

This place was perfect for my husband, my four kids, and myself! We were in town for the Mermaid Triathlon and looked for an affordable place for our entire family to stay. Because the Venetian was close to the beach and to the event, we decided to check it out. We were not disappointed at all! The rooms were big...

An excellent little boutique hotel with great Ocean View rooms and an outstanding location!! A real find if you want to visit Capitola! Not the cheapest but the extra is definitely worth it because of the views and location.

Reviewed 14 October 2013

This hotel has a great location, right above the beach in Capitola. The rooms are basic but are clean and have great kitchens. This would be a super location for a family vacation or a girls getaway. It was reasonably priced AND (and this is a major plus in Capitola) has guest parking. Well worth the visit.

This is the second we have stayed here and we will definitely come back. We always get a suite with a kitchen and extra bedrooms to lounge around and be comfortable. The place is older, but has so much class! It is so colorful and easy to get to. I can't wait to go back.

Owasso, Oklahoma
Reviewed 9 September 2013

LOVED this hotel with separate bedrooms and kitchenette. The location right on the beach, within walking distance to restaurants and bars on the water- perfect! Only drawback was the HOT weather at the end of August and no air-conditioning. Leaving the windows open to take in the cool evening and morning air was then noisy with early morning traffic. There...

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay here at the Capitola Venetian. Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel. That was quite a little hot spell we had. Fortunately it only gets that hot here a few times a year. We don't usually miss having air conditioning being so near the ocean. I hope you'll be staying with...

We have been staying at the Venetian for 5 years, sometimes twice a year. We love the quaint hotel, it's beautiful location, and the beach. The staff are all very friendly. I nightly recommend this hotel.

This is a very old motel by California standards. Our room (123) was big (living area with sofa and bed, kitchen, bedroom, and very small bathroom). Lots of road noise in this room though. It's literally on the sidewalk/street so unless you plug your ears, you can't leave the window open in the bedroom, which is kind of the point...

Thank you for taking to time to review our hotel. I'm sorry you found your room to be noisy. We do have rooms further from the street that would be quieter.
