“Nice but loud...........”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2012

This hotel is perfect if you want to visit downtown, and not drive. The staff were very, very friendly. The rooms were small, but very clean and cute. Our room was upstairs and across the street from Marguaritaville Rest. The band across the street started loading up their equiptment around midnight, and it was very loud. After that, the restaurants that are across from our room went into cleaning mode. This included taking or rolling out garbage containers, and spraying down the sidewalk and street. Very Loud! I would stay here again if I took a room on the other side, and ear plugs are a must. The location is the best. It allowed us to stroll the many restaurants and bars, and not have to drive:) As mentioned in other reviews the bedding and linens were nice.

The location is just great - across the street from the beach with many restaurants and shops just steps away. As others have posted the rooms are small but clean and reasonably priced for the area. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed over Christmas so there wasn't a lot of people or any noise at night. I imagine that would be different during the summer season.

The hotel is right in the thick of things in Capitola and the price is really competitive. The staff go out of their way to take care of you, unfortunately the paper thin walls and mini sized rooms let it down a bit. Most people have complained about the noise from the street and bars outside, but we found the noise from other rooms to be much worse.
On a more positive note, everything was clean and the bed was comfortable. We may go back again, but we would need a bigger room if available.

Being in the middle of the village we expected noise. We stayed two nights Friday and Saturday. We used ear plugs to sleep. Closing the window did help too. We heard there is one room with no windows. Those guests heard no noise!

The hotel is very clean, stylish and comfortable. The complementary coffee and muffin are okay. We skipped the Costco muffin.

It's a great hotel location wise. The price is fair.

I love this place. It's small and easy to go back and forth to the beach. Across the street, up the small flight of stairs and your there in your room. It was so convenient. I got the best parking spot across the street with the provided parking pass. No problems with noise from across the street. Ignore people's dumb complaints about the makeup removing cloths, they are people who are in a habit of complaining. Just enjoy your stay, relax and be happy. And of course you have to return the park pass, it's like gold, they can't just be given to every guest for eternity. Those were dumb complaints. Coming back ASAP!

Enjoyed our Capitola get away. The village is crowded but more sedate mid-week. Our room was small but stylish, comfortable and very clean. (Not for folks who like to spread out their belongings.) We savored the flavored coffee and muffins in the patio. We were not in our room for long as the beach and shops beckoned. We found quite a few treasures at bargain prices. The locale is excellent as we parked our car once (no fee with the Hotel parking placard) and walked everywhere.

Room Tip: Martinique room has interior window no view to the outside

Our stay at the Capitola Hotel was pleasant and quiet (weekday), the room (Aruba) small, but comfortable and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful.
We were disappointed that the complimentary cooked to order breakfast (which was praised for on the hotel website at the time of our reservation) had been terminated without notice, and that coffee was only available for a short time in the morning.
Nevertheless, it is good value for money.
