Surprising find in CapitolaWe did not know anything about the inn except through my sister who stayed there some time ago who said she loved it. To our surprise, we arrived and it reminded us of Erna's in Oakhurst!! The overall experience was very good and would stay again and recommend to others!!

          FriendlyThat was the password and accurately reflects this place. My room could have been a better location but no matter. The desk manager allowed me to check in way early and I had a lot of work to do

            Location, Location, LocationOur 3 day stay at the Capitola Hotel was superb! Very centrally located near shops, restaurants, bars and the beach. Parking can be a little testy at certain times of the day , but not if you pay extra for the garage. Staff is incredibly friendly and super helpful. A great stay!!!
