"Wonderful Experience!"
Beautiful, clean and very friendly staff. Fantastic room. Great wine and cheese hour and delicious breakfast. Very quiet. Oldest standing building in Capitola, was the original railroad depot. Beautifully converted into a B & B keeping all the old charm. Rooms are some of the most beautifully appointed I've seen, and I'm an interior decorator. Will do this again!

"Different, quirky, a breath of fresh air"
This is a lovely place, a pretty group of buildings nestling under a cliff right in the middle of town. It's quiet (except for a few minutes on garbage collection morning!) and feels very secluded even though it's just 2 blocks from Highway 1 and a 15 minute stroll form either the wharf or downtown. We had the Tennyson Suite as this included a sofabed for the kids, and we were relieved it was above the lobby so that no other guests would be disturbed by the patter of not-so-tiny feet in the morning. Very comfortable and roomy, we all slept well. The kids loved playing in the garden and we enjoyed the aperitif (wine and simple snacks) each evening. Staff were lovely and very helpful. Lots of nice touches to make sure you enjoy Santa Cruz - maps, directions, restaurant recommendations and menus. We'd happily stay here again.

Overall positive. Great customer service, awesome waiter service at the bar, room has everything you could need. Super chic. Only complaint is charging for parking, feel like they had a huge parking lot it should come with the price of the room. But clearly walking around Santa Cruz it was far above the other hotel options.

"I would have given them all 5's"
The hotel is very clean, rooms are comfortable and newly updated. Staff was professional. The only complaint I have is the spa jets are weak. I would not even call them jets more like water spouts. Also the vending machine does not take bills only change. You are with in walking distance from the pier and downtown. And the breakfast was wonderful. Over all Excellent and I would stay there again!

"Perfect"
It was so clean and everything was perfect. All the stuff on the room were good. Floor was hardwood, bathroom had the granite. Just the room was small and it was good for one person and the price was high for Thursday night.
