Reviewed 13 March 2012

No frills, great place to crash for a night. Older, updated rooms are very clean. Microwave and refrigerator, very useful.

I brought a group of couples for a little getaway. We got a good price, clean room, and great service from Joe! We enjoyed the continental breakfast, the waffle machine worked great. I saw the bad reviews but this was our experience. Perhaps they've been correcting their previous mistakes. The manager always gave us a nice greeting whenever we passed by.

The hotel was a distance from the heart of the town. There was a free shuttle but you are subject to its availability. The rooms are large but a little shabby. The balcony fit one table and one person. Every time a door slams any where in the building you hear it . The breakfast is equal to any other continental breakfast offered at any other hotel. The service is pretty minimal. Not a particular warm welcome. It was average.

Previous review "Busanio" is misleading.

Capitola Inn is located off California State Highway Route 1, exit the Bay Avenue / Porter Street exit, proceed west one block, then turn left at Hill St. or into Crossroads loop, property is located on the hill.

Capitola Inn is NOT only a minute on foot from Capitola State Beach and Capitola Village and nowhere near Shadowbrooks Restaurant; by vehicle, it's more of a five-minute drive with exceptional directions!!!

The Inn sits in a quiet location, no bars, no eating establishments close by, except Dairy Queen and a Sushi Bar, which was closed, but Nob Hill is within walking distance and offers a vast selection of food and beverage.

That said, Capitola Inn is basic, quiet, and comfortable. The management was warm and accomodating. The bed was comfortable, towels and linens were adequate. The continental breakfast was (as previously mentioned) high in carbs: Waffles, bagels, bread, cereal...milk selection was whole or lowfat. Fruit was apples and oranges.

This hotel is not inexpensive but has a great location in Capitola Village, only a minute on foot from Capitola Beach. The rooms are smallish but very comfortable and the beds are great. Decor is plush and colorful and the noise level isn't too bad, even in spite of all the bars that party late into the night just across the street. Lots of options for eating and drinking in this, the best part of Capitola, but parking is a drag on weekends. The hotel gives you a parking voucher to place on your dash, IF you can find a place to park. Best to park when you can and not move your car until you absolutely need to.

Very much walking distance to great places in Capitola. Go up the hill to Gayle's Bakery, a local institution serving not only baked goods but great dinners, pastas, salads, sandwiches. Gayle's has an outdoor seating area that's now enclosed so you don't have to suffer on those cold, foggy days. Another bonus is the proximity to Shadowbrook, a quirky but fun restaurant that has its own funicular railway car that takes guests up and down the hill.

Beginning surfers often congregate to the beach left of the the Village restaurant row.
