I would not recommend this hotel. They have a 2 day cancellation policy and will not be flexible when asked for special consideration. I was not impressed with the front desk nor the appearance of the hotel - doesn't compare to other local hotels.

Tucked back in off of HWY 1 and easy to get to, this smallish 54 unit hotel is quiet and conveniently located. Each room has its own private deck or patio. Our king room was of ample size with a very comfy bed, table and chairs, small refrigerator, coffee maker, flat screen TV. The bathroom was small and basic. Breakfast...

I stayed here for 1 night while visiting the area. I was in block 2 on the 2nd floor, facing the back of the parking lot. The room was pretty basic but quiet. The location is great, 1mi or so from Capitola Beach and the Esplanade area. It is also easy to get on to Highway 1 from here, which...

We will be back when we visit Capitola in the future, the service and convenient location make this our choice. The room is clean and quiet and the bed is comfortable, what more could we ask for. We paid an average price of 200 per night for a Friday and Saturday through Booking.com but still seems like a little on...

The hot breakfast was good and serviced well. The rooms were ok but the air conditioners did not work really well and very noisey. It was a good value. Mix up in requested downstairs room and some of our party ended upstairs.

Made a 1am arrival and they accomodated us for it with no issues at all. Overall great breakfast, staff and service. The only complaint would be breakfast starts at 7am and our door was literally right next door to the kitchen in which we heard people and kids from 7am and on. Kinda sucked being that we fell asleep at...

Capitola is a beautiful little village in the Central Coast of California. If you want a reasonably priced hotel in a convenient location, the Quality Inn can fit those requirements. The units vary, but we stayed in a king size bedroom that had a private patio. Nice for catching some rays and fresh air. The location is about 2 miles...

This weekend we were in town for a 40th birthday party. We decided it would be prudent to stay after the party versus driving home. At the last minute we booked this motel and were pleased with our selection. It is off the main drag a bit, though next to the freeway. It is somewhat insulated from the sound and...

My family and I have stayed at this hotel in Capitola numerous times. We have returned due the reasonable rate for this area as well as it's easy to get to location and proximity to the beach and the Santa Cruz Wharf/Boardwalk area. The rooms are clean with a small frig and microwave. Breakfast is fresh and warm with a...

We've stayed at this hotel multiple times in the past 8 years. And it is the best hotel in capitola. It is not in the village. But you can take a free shuttle to the village and beach area. There isn't any good hotels near the beach anyway. The staff is excellent. And the free breakfast in the morning is...
