Very comfortable room, had noisy kids running in the room next to us and up and down the halls. Other than that, great breakfast, comfy room and good location near the capitola beach.

Nice upgrade they offered us for free because they overbooked the type of room. Have a nice weekend with the fireplace uncomfortable bathroom with the tub. No real good. It was too cold to go swimming at the pool was nice. Complementary breakfast Was about as good as it gets better place.

The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The batteries were low in our TV changer and we were provided with new batteries with no questions asked. The breakfast staff had all the food types well stocked and replenished them promptly. The rooms and the grounds were immaculate. We have stayed here in the past because we have family in the area and found things a little run down but this visit was great and everything looked great. Only praise this time for the hotel.

...And Breakfast Too!

Pros: Pretty much everything.
Cons: The one suggestion I made to the desk attendant is that they switch to two-ply toilet tissue, and he said they usually used two-ply.
Location: The beach and the charming village of Capitola are nearby, with lots of shops and cafes. Gayle's deli and bakery is right down the street on Bay.
The room was quite large with good lighting, which is important to me because I'm a reader. It was close to the parking area, and the grounds had lots of trees. The rooms were scattered among three buildings, all painted a cheerful light yellow. The bed was comfortable, and extra pillows were provided for propping up to read in bed. A full breakfast was available, with many different options. The food was good, including a Belgian waffle.There was a small patio outside the room, though I didn't use it because it was winter and it was too cold. The desk attendant provided me cheerfully with the fork, knife and plate I requested Christmas night when I brought back a piece of cake from my dinner with friends, and he threw in a napkin as well.

It was nice

For a night, it was nice and quiet. They had our room ready when I needed it earlier than anticipated.

Close to freeway and not far from Capitola Village

Staff was extremely friendly. Plenty of parking. Spacious and clean rooms. Nothing fancy but perfect for what we needed. A bit out of the way if you don't know the area but short drive to Capitola Village, good food or the beach.
