The hotel was close to our destination. And walking distance to some local restaurants and shopping. The staff was courteous and the hotel was clean. The complimentary cookies were delicious. And the breakfast was good.

BW Plus Capitota has an excellent location; 6 blocks from the cliffs and next to the shopping mall on 41st. The parking lot was easy to get in and out of. The staff is very friendly and had hot cookies at the front desk in the afternoon. The size of the facility was on the small side and had a...

Nice central location for visiting Capitola, Santa Cruz and surrounding areas. Make sure you talk with the front desk people for dining suggestions. Breakfast selections were a pleasant surprise. Try this place!

We stayed here for the second time for a quick one night stopover. Rooms are spotless, beds very comfortable, and bathrooms well stocked with plenty of towels and toiletries. Breakfast room is bright with a decent selection of fare. We've paid much more at other places for a lot less. Great value, and suited our purposes perfectly. We'll be back!

Our stay was short but sweet. A cool town. My first time being here but looking forward to coming back and checking the old section out. The motel and staff were great. The ocean is nearby and all the little towns along the coastline are pretty cool.

This is a friendly, efficiently run, well located hotel. The breakfast, which is included, while not quite up to resort standards, is appetizing and more than adequate. We enjoyed our stay at this Best Western and would return.

Very clean and comfortable. Location was ideal. Close to shops, downtown and restaurants. The rooms were not very sound proofed. We could hear what was happening in the office which shared a wall, people in the hallway as well as every movement made above us.

Overall clean room. I could hear children in the hallway. Breakfast is very mediocre. Bathroom fan does not work. The radiator was leaking. Marriot, 2 blocks down the street, is cheaper and has better breakfast with bacon and scrambled eggs. Carpets look outdated.
